Window Espagnolettes (PVC-u Window Locks)

Window espagnolettes provide the security attributes helping to keep you secure in your home.

 

Espagnolettes are also designed to compress the weather seals when you close and secure your window effectively eliminating draughts and therefore helps in reducing heating bills and in keeping you comfortable and warm.

As with friction stays a good tail tail sign of worn or failed espagnoletts is if the traffic outside your home seems noisier then it used to or if you are finding dirt deposits on your net curtains and around the seams of your opening windows then it might be time to replace those worn out espagnolettes (Window Locks)!

 

Derived from the French, an espagnolette is a locking device, normally mounted on the vertical frame of a French door or casement window.

 

A handle or knob is connected to a metal rod mounted to the surface of the frame, at about three or four feet above the floor.

 

Operating the handle rotates the rod, which has hooks or adjustable cams at each end that fit into sockets at the head or cill of the opening vent.
