Window Handles for BLINDS

All of the Window handles from Handles & Hinges will fit many types of double glazing and come complete with keys, extra window handle keys are available. Most of the new style UPVC window handles are push to open. This means that the handle snaps locked when the window handle is closed, resulting in happy insurance companies and your house is more secure. 

If your UPVC window handle is broken or snapped and you're not sure what to replace it with our friendly staff can advise on which handle to choose. With over 20 years in the Double Glazing industry the Handles and Hinges team can help you with your choice.

There are 2 main variations of UPVC double glazing window handle:

  •  Cockspur PVC window handles lock by means of a spur (little triangle bit) pulling up against a plastic wedge on your double glazed UPVC window frame. The Cockspur wedges / Frame strikers come in various sizes starting at 3mm thick going up to 8mm are secured by using either rivets or self tapping screws.     

  •  Espag UPVC Window handles are the more modern variation, these are sometimes called spindle handles. The espag UPVC window handle has a spindle that sticks out of the back  which when turned engages either shoot bolts or mushrooms within the double glazed window.

Espag Window handles. 

These window handles are found on the more modern UPVC windows. The window handle spindle turns an internal drive which locks the window when the handle is turned. All espag handles are fixed by means of a window handle bolt which can vary in length according to the spindle that comes out of the back of the handle. The spindle(A) is available in variable lengths and you should measure your old window handle to determine which size is needed. Take a look at the picture at the side to see if your handle is an espag handle.


Cockspur window handles.

Cockspur window handles tend to be found on the older type of UPVC windows. The cockspur window handle locks by way of a part of the handle catching onto striker plates or wedgesThese wedges stick on to the window frame by super glue and also clip into holes. The cockspur handle is available in different stack heights and this must be measured carefully when ordering(measuring guide). Cockspur handles are fitted by using self tapping window screws instead of bolts like espag window handlesYou will also find cockspur handles on some aluminium windows, these usually have a stack height of 9mm but the availability of different colour is limited due to demand not being as high.

Tilt and turn window handles  are a different style altogether to the handles mentioned in the above paragraphs. The tilt and turn handle is designed to move through 180 degreees which is needed to operate a tilt and turn window. These handles are fixed to the window by window bolts and the spindles lengths do not vary as much as espag handles.
