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

This depends on your level of DIY skills but most people should be able to manage.

Take a look at the image on this link which shows the different styles. In the end its generally a personal choice as to whether you go for inline or handed.

No. You should either re-use the old bolts or you can click here to buy new bolts.

    UPVC window handle

    Posted by Gavin Fletcher on Feb 12, 2023

    Product was as described and is great quality - but the best thing was the website. When my window handle broke I wasn't sure how standardised they were and what I need to look for in order to buy a replacement. The website gave me all the info I needed to make a good cost effective DIY repair. Wonderful!
