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.

Espag Window Handle Measuring Guide 

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



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







Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. All espag handles have fixing points which are 43mm apart

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.

Yes. However they will be 40mm long so if your spindle is shorter than this you will need to cut them down or re-use your old bolts.

If all the handles are the same make then 1 key will fit them all.

    Replacing. a defunct window handle

    Posted by nstaples on Jun 11, 2018

    This was much more straightforward than I feared. Email response was prompt, video to show how to measure and change from old to new is first class, as is delivery. For such a low cost item this company's service is brilliant.
