‘Lift to Turn’

The backplate has been cast to the correct width to allow it to clear the frame rebate on modern outward opening windows rather than being machined then coated. This eliminates any unsightly machining marks and provides the consistency of product necessary for modern window production lines. The handle’s ‘Lift to Turn’ function prevents handle droop on top hung sashes and guards against external manipulation. Full key locking is provided by the working cylinder. The 60mm spindle has easy-cut notches to enable it to be cut to fit any profile. The black fixing screws provided are also notched.
