What is an espag window handle?

Firstly let's explain what an espag is. An espagnolette (shortened to espag) locking system is the metal strip which runs up the locking side of a window and moves when the handle is turned. They most often have round studs on them called mushrooms which move up and down (or side to side depending on how your window sits). The mushrooms catch into a metal plate on the window frame called a keep. In the centre of the espag is a gearbox with a square hole in it, the spindle from the handle goes through this hole and when the handle is turned it operates the mechanism.

So the handle which moves an espag mechanism is called an espag window handle.

The double glazing industry has made some parts of an espag handle standard – the fixing holes are always 43mm apart and the spindle is always 7mm wide. The length of the spindle will differ and can range from 10mm up to 40mm. Some companies occasionally used longer spindles but these have been phased out generally.

Just to spoil the descriptions the espag handle also operates other types of systems in upvc windows such as gearboxes and shootbolt systems. But these systems have stuck to the standards and are operated using espag window handles.

 

 

How To Measure Your Espag Window Handle

Espag Window Handle Measuring Guide 

Simple steps to help you Measure the Spindle for your Window Handle

window-spindle-measuring.jpg

 

Make sure the spindle is pushed right back in to the existing handle and then measure the amount it protrudes from the handle as per (referenced A) the drawing on the left.

If you do not have a handle you can measure the existing Window Bolts you have. The bolts should be the same length as the spindle length that you need but it is not always the case

 

 

DO NOT MEASURE THE SPINDLE TOTAL LENGTH WHILST IT IS OUT OF THE HANDLE,

 

THIS WILL RESULT IN A SPINDLE THAT WILL BE TOO LONG FOR YOUR WINDOW

    Excellent quality handles

    Posted by Tigran Aivazian on Oct 13, 2021

    My existing window handles worked fine for about 20-30 years (don't know exactly when the previous house owner installed them, but I own the house for more than 20 years), but some of them started to break and I found the replacement on this site and ordered a few spare ones. I expect them to last for at least the next 30 years, assuming the quality is the same as what it used to be in the past. Overall I am very happy with the purchase.

    Sensible Ergonomic Shape

    Posted by Roger Bradley on Sep 16, 2021

    Well made, feels solid, without undue movement when closed/locked. The lock protectors are a good idea. Takes less than five minutes to fit. The cranked design is much easier to use than straight. No more catching knuckles on the frame and it provides better leverage.
