Timber Window Latches
Locking casement window latches for timber windows - fasteners and catches with key locks to meet home insurance standards. Casement window latches suitable for timber/wood windows only. The range of window fasteners you see on this webpage will fit most of the older types of wooden windows as well as new ones. We have window furniture that will suit contemporary or traditional like the monkey tail period antique fittings. We can also help you with the common fastener makes like John Carr, Titon and Arthur Shaw casement fittings. Even if you have chamfered frames or angled we have lots of casement fasteners, latches and catches and most of them are key locking. Some of the fasteners are designed with a built in night vent catch for trickle ventilation.
I have John Carr handles but can't get them any more, what will replace them?
There are a number of different John Carr designs but unfortunately the handles are no longer available. To replace them is still possible and generally involves trying to position the catch onto the frame where thin or rounded corners exist. In the first instance you need to measure the amount of flat land available for fixing the latch to the opener and the catch to the fixed frame. This will determine which handles could be considered. The most popular timber latch is the W28 and these come with the blocks that sit in the corner of the window allowing the handle to close tightly.
My windows have an angle frame, what window fittings will work with this?
Most of the window latches we show on the website are sent with two options for the catch, one for flat frames and one for angled frames. The angled frames are usually standard 9 degree slopes.
My windows are narrow and I am worried that your window fittings will not fit onto the window?
Some windows are very narrow but we do provide the 'land' size you need for each handle to ensure that the handle will fit. Most of the handles will work with narrow frames but you will need to check if you are worried.
My latches are fixed around the curve of the window frame do you have anything to fit these?
There is only one latch (W76) that can be fitted to this type of frame and it is supplied with a special contoured catch that fits snugly around the rounded corner of the frame. This is a special handle and it only fits this specific type of John Carr window.
I prefer the traditional styled furniture but can't find a locking handle?
Unfortunately there are few designs available although the W44 handle comes with a locking key and is the traditional wedge design latch. Details here: W44.
I need matching stays for my window latches?
These are available in the Peg Stays section and the details of the latch should tell you the matching stay part number.
