Windows and Window Locks
Fixing window locks is not done is the same way as door locks are done. There are several steps that are taken in order to fully understand the technicality behind window lock repairs. There are different types of locks that are meant for particular kinds of windows. But first of all, we will let you in on the most common types of windows before going into the popular types of locks there are.
The most common windows you find in homes these days are the single hung windows. Homeowners basically use this window because it’s pretty affordable. The window is placed such that the upper panels is fixated while the bottom panel can slide vertically and blocks the upper panel when opened. But this limited motion doesn’t allow for much ventilation into your office or home. If you live in a double story home or work in a multiple story building, it will be difficult to work on the window as compared to single story buildings where the window can be easily accessed from the inside and outside of the ground floor. But there’s no need to worry, because TopLockSmiths have well trained professionals that can sort out any lock repair issue no matter how high your building is.
Double hung windows on the other hand are different from the single hung windows because you can easily open both panels without any blockades and this allows for a better ventilation as well. It is the direct opposite of the single hung window as it allows for easy care, maintainence and lock repairs. They are not as cheap as the single hung windows, but tend to become cost effective in the long run.
Casement windows, Awning windows and sliding windows are some of the other types of windows you will find in business places, homes and are used by construction companies in buildings. There are those that aren’t so easy to maintain or maneuver when they get jammed, that is why you need a window lock specialist from TopLockSmiths to sort out all the issues you might have – to enable you get back to your daily activities without any hassles.
Talking about window locks, different locks provide varying levels of security even though they perform the same basic function. The keyed lock is one of the most commonly used type of window lock. It’s operated by inserting the correct key before the window can either open or close. They usually work well when placed on the side of double hung windows. But then, there’s no need placing a keyed lock on all your windows so you don’t have a hard time keeping track of which key is meant for what window. Therefore, Sliding locks can be used in lieu of keyed locks. They can be fitted within the window tracks or the side of the window, and can also be easily assembled.
There are the folding latch locks which are installed on the top panel of double hung windows, and they commonly used by business owners and homeowners. It allows a free flow of air into the room or your space due to how the window partially opens when the lock is operated. There are other locks like the lag screw locks (which involves drilling of screws into the panel’s washers), and the window latch lock – which are also very common because it allows you lock and unlock your window simultaneously.
