The importance of windows

During warm periods, opening your window is the easiest, cheapest and most effective way of cooling your room or building.

Opening windows on opposite sides of the building to allow natural breezes to pass through (cross ventilation) offers the most effective solution during these warmer periods.

Utilise natural light to reduce energy consumption, and the warm rays of the sun can naturally heat your home during cold winter months.

Crucial Window Performance

Windows offer a connection to the outside world, allowing you to see what is happening outside your home.

e.g. what the weather is like or who has attended your home without answering the door. Crucially, however, they also provide you with an emergency escape route should the unfortunate scenario occur. An emergency exit point is needed, if a house fire should occur.

We are not dramatic when we say that a fully functional window can save your life!

Sticking uPVC Windows

For this reason, it is a necessity that all your UPVC windows are in good working order for your safety, comfort and also to adhere to your home insurance requirements.

UPVC Windows often contain inner UPVC mechanisms that allow your window to open and close securely and quickly, providing excellent security for your home or business.

These UPVC window mechanisms are at times neglected, causing them to fault or can malfunction without warning.

Ask yourself this question....

How many times a year do you service and clean your window mechanisms, ensuring they are in good working order?

Due to this neglect, much like not servicing a car regularly, the eventual outcome is a UPVC mechanical failure.

So what do you do if these scenarios occur with your UPVC windows?....

My UPVC window is faulting?

A UPVC window lock faulting can result in the window becoming extremely difficult to close and lock, resulting in complete mechanism failure if the problem is not rectified.

We strongly advise that if the UPVC mechanism is faulting that you contact ourselves straight away to get the problem resolved rather than continuing to use the window.

The problem will not rectify by itself and will only get worse! Contact your Sheffield locksmith now to discuss your problem.

My UPVC window mechanism has failed?

In the scenario of a complete UPVC window mechanism failure, this could result in:-

  • The window is closed shut and will not open.
  • The window is open and cannot be sealed shut.
  • The window, although closed, will not engage using the handle; therefore, the window is not locking.

UPVC Window Restrictors

Window restrictors, window restraints and window limiters are suitable for uPVC double glazed windows with different types of egress restrictors, key locking upvc window restrictors and cable window restrictors to choose from.

They provide peace of mind where young children are present or any room above ground floor. They can be used for improving window security to open windows when occupants are in the house but away from the open window for ventilation on warmer days. We recommend ground floor windows are closed at night even with window restrictors fitted.

The National House-Building Council (NHBC) leaflet and the Government document pertaining to Approved Document K of the Building Regulations regarding Protection From Falling, Collision and Impact covers how UPVC window restrictors should be applied in new and old buildings alike and will ensure that you treat all considerations carefully.
