Finding a matching keep for a Upvc Door or Window
It’s often impossible to find an exact match as keeps are a profile related part, which will of been made to fit a specific profile at point of manufacture.
Over the years profile companies have a vested interest in updating and changing the shape of the products every few years to meet new demands and standards.
Once this happens the shape of the keep become discontinued, as the requirement for them is gone.
To this end the only option is to modify a keep which is a close match, or modify the profile Upvc to suit. You can normally do this relatively easy by either removing some of the Upvc up stand with a sharp wood chisel or Stanley knife. Alternatively you may need to create a bit of a shim / packer to put underneath the keep to give it a flat bed to sit on. Once you do this screw it firmly in place and you should have a trouble free installation.
You generally need to concentrate on the detailed dimension drawings we have provided with each of our keeps to find the exact dimensions.
