Replacement Handles For UPVC Windows

UPVC window handles come in various styles but all use the same locking mechanism. To replace a uPVC handle first remove the top screw from the base of the window handle. This will reveal two screws.

Then, take measurements of the spindle to make sure your new handle will fit. It’s crucial to determine what kind of handle you have as there are many different sizes.

Inline Espagnolette Handles

Most double-glazed windows come with Espagnolette handles which operate multi-point locks to increase security. The handle is controlled by an 7mm square spindle which connects to a gearbox within the frame of the window. The gearbox rotates the multi-lock mushrooms as the handle is turned. They are available in a range of styles, including cockspurs inline, key, and cockspur locking handles.

These uPVC handle sets are packed with a variety of spindle lengths to suit most applications and have all fixing screws required for installation included. They also come with key plugs to enable them to be converted from standard open/close to egress and fire escape non-locking handles (if used in conjunction with the appropriate key plug).

Cockspur Handles

Cockspur handles are often found on older uPVC or aluminum doors and windows, are a simple latch-and-catch arrangement. The handle’s nose slides into or into the catch which is a block of plastic that is affixed to the frame of the window. Since the wedges come in various sizes, it is essential that you know what step height you need to buy prior to buying a new handle. As a rule windows made of uPVC tend to utilize a 21mm step and aluminium frames generally have a 9mm handle step.

A cockspur handle is locked using a key, providing added security for your home. The lock is fitted into the handle using spindles that fit into the handle through the hole for locking (also called a backset). The spindle has a 7mm square cross-section and can be used to either open or close the window.

It is essential to make sure that the new cockspur handle is the same height as the original. Usually, this is measured from the base of the spur on the handle to the underside of the handle’s nose. This measurement is also called the backset or stack height, and it is vital that you have this information prior to purchasing a handle.

Cockspur handles are available as straight/universal, cranked, left- or right-handed versions. This is to allow the handles to be positioned on windows that open to the left or right, and to give the user easier access to the window.

Check if your window needs a restrictor. This is designed to stop the handle from being opened beyond a certain level. These are usually required for high-rise flats or commercial buildings for security reasons. However, the majority of homes do not require these.

There are many different styles and shades of cockspur handles including stainless steel and white uPVC steel. The best choice for your windows will depend on your personal tastes and style, and how you want the window to perform.

Tilt and Turn Handles

The UK is home to a wide range of double-glazed windows with tilt and turn handles. Both upvc windows and timber ones feature these handles. The handle is typically placed at 90 degrees, however it can also be rotated to 180 degrees. This permits the window to be opened into the room fully, and also to lower it for ventilation. The handle is locked in this position and requires a key to unlock it in the event of a need.

This kind of handle can be easily changed, since it only has one large handle, not a number of smaller ones. This improves the appearance of the handle, and is more in line with contemporary minimalist design trends. They are also much easier to clean as they open to the inside.

Another benefit of tilt and turn windows is that they are 4 to 8 times stronger than casement windows. This makes them ideal for larger windows and doors. The frames also have a steel core which increases the strength and durability.

The tilt-and-turn mechanism is more secure than a casement because the handle can be locked in any position. This is particularly important in areas that have children because it stops them from accidentally opening a window.

Many homes opt for tilt and turn windows as they can be used in different ways. They can be opened horizontally, as a normal window or lowered to the hopper style. This is a great choice for those looking to increase airflow and lessen noise in their home. Glass is easily removed making them easy to clean and maintain. These windows are available in various sizes and colors. They are a great addition to any type of home and complement both traditional and contemporary styles.

Crank Handles

Crank handles are easy to operate and offer fantastic views of the outside without blocking the glass. These handles are usually used on casement windows hinged on the sides or awning windows. They have a mechanism that is similar to a window bar, and linkage arm, that supports the window sash. The window sash is opened or closed when you turn the handle clockwise. The crank window’s mechanism unlike other handles is usually subjected to a lot of wear and tear. This could cause the handle and gears to break or fall off the shaft of the operator. Regularly inspecting the crank handle and the operator mechanism will ensure that they are in good condition for a number of years.

A crank handle consists of a mechanical shaft which rotates perpendicularly and is connected to an arm. The arm is rotated in a circular motion by gripping and rotating it, similar to how you operate a sharpener. In certain instances, the handle can be operated by the leg.

The base of the crank handle is hollow. This hole allows the handle to be connected to machinery and equipment. The handle’s arm also includes a connecting rod which converts the circular motion the handle into a rotary or reciprocating motion that operates equipment and machines.

Boats are often loaded onto trailers using crank handles, as well as the adjusting equipment and machinery. They are usually made of stainless steel that is resistant against corrosion in marine environments. Due to this, the majority of boat crank handles are powder coated to shield them from damage and to make them easier to clean.

Replace your crank handle if it ceases to function or does not open the window replacement panes. Look for the trim mounting screws inside the window frame’s track. If there aren’t any, try to loosen the casement cover with a stiff putty knife by sliding it between the window jamb and frame and pulling it. If that doesn’t work, you can remove it and installer get access to the crank by removing screws in the window frame.
