Why buy a Window lock?

Buying a window lock is an ideal solution if you have a metal, wooden or upvc window that currently has either no lock or only one window lock. Whether you are simply replacing an existing window lock or fitting one from new it is worth considering, when buying a window lock the level of security you need and also the style of lock.

We supply window locks to suit casement windows, sash windows, sliding windows, flush frame windows etc. All window locks are supplied with keys. Most of the window locks in our range can be keyed alike for convenience and safety in a fire.
Insurance guidelines state that any opening window that is longer than 600mm should be fitted with either a multilocking unit or two window locks for strength.
Examples of window locks avilable for various styles
