A typically lock used on casements uPVC window can incorporate a combination of locking points to secure the window to the frame.
These locking points give the window greater security and resistance to attack. It’s important to be aware which lock you have so you can make a judgement whether you need additional security.
Generally most PVCu window locks are split into Espagnolette bars offering the lowest security to a more secure Espagnolette bar or locks with centre bolts and end shootbolts with greater locking points offering higher security.
The shootbolt locking mechanism consists of a central gearbox, face bar and shootbolt which extends outward from the top and bottom. Shootbolt locking systems can also be specified to include mushroom cams for enhanced security and can also incorporate a roller cam for superior weather sealing.
Tilt and turn windows are different to casement window in that they have locking points around the window to allow it to operate in a unique way. The most common type of tilt and turn handle is Tilt Before Turn which can be locked to prevent the sash moving to the open position.
Latches feature on some shootbolt locking systems and extend from the central gearbox as the handle is turned, engaging the locking points.
Unlike door latches which are sprung, a window latch extends only on the turn of a handle.
Rollers are most commonly used for weathersealing and mushrooms help provide separation resistance of the sash and outer frame.
A keep is fitted to the window frame and is where hooks, rollers, mushrooms and shootbolts lock into. Keeps can be specified in a number of materials such as Zinc and plastix. Keeps are usually chamfered and guide the cams into the final locking position.
A night vent is a facility in which the window can be locked in a partially open position. This provides increased ventilation without compromising security. Night vents are usually provided by a second locking position within the keeps.
