Locking casement window stays for timber windows that need to meet home insurance standards. These casement stays are suitable for timber/wood windows only and come in non-locking and locking stays as well as a range of superb finishes such as satin nickel, stainless steel and traditional brass stays. The range of casement stays you see on this webpage will fit most of the older types of wooden windows as well as new wooden windows that use window furniture that includes casement stays as a means of holding the window open. The combination of a window latch to close the window and a peg stay to hold the window open is a common method ranging from period and traditional styles to more contemporary designs. This is a different type of window compared to a upvc window that relies solely on various types of window handles like espag window handles to provide the locking closure needed.
Casement Window Stays For Wooden Windows
Casement stays for wooden windows are still going strong and long may they live! Despite so many changes to the window market over the years these time served casement stays keep reproducing and replicating our history and even on pvc windows! Maintaining a traditional design to an older window style is difficult to do but here we can offer many of the most popular types of casement stays still available and bring them into the modern age with locks which are a prerequisite for many insurance policies. The older style peg stays can now work with a window stay lock that just changes the pin on the old one for a locking one on the new one! The new designs of casement stays have inbuilt locks which makes things a little easier but can't lock the window open like the window stay locks! Of course suitable locking window latches can also be used in combination with a non-locking window stay.
If you are looking for specific items or colours like brass casement stays or black casement stays look no further as we can show an impressive range to suit most tastes.

Quick Tips & Links
Can I lock the window open?
You are able to lock some of the casement stays in an open position but only those classed as peg stays. Peg stays are the ones with holes in and the pins fit through the holes. In this case you can use Window Stay Locks by substituting a peg for a lock. Typically the W46 and W47 traditional stays are used in this instance. Some casement stays just rest onto the pins as opposed to going through the arm and these cannot be locked open.
Are window stays handed?
Casement window stays are not handed by virtue of the reversible knuckle that can turn the stay around. It's just a case of setting it up on the window correctly when installing.
Can I get matching handles for my stays?
In most cases you can get the matching stay and this is shown under the Related Products section within the details page of the product. If both the window stays and the window latches are locking then they will also be the same key throughout.
My casement window is flush to the frame when closed?
In the case of flush frames you will need a special flush pin rest and to use a peg stay. It won't be possible to employ a locking stay pin in this case. The W46 and W47 models are the only casement stays that are capable of being used in this way with the addition of a flush pin (purchased separately).
