Our range of window casement restrictors.
Hold-Open Eurogroove Fit Restrictor
Using the same technology as our Tech 1000 door restrictors, this Eurogroove, "Hold Open" window restrictor is available with fixed (not detachable) or with detachable frame anchor.
Variable fixing position allows the sash opening to be set as required and will "hold" the sash in position; it is not reliant upon the friction stays.
This restrictor is ideal for Juliet balcony doors to allow good ventilation while
restricting the opening to avoid damage to door sashes colliding with balcony rails.

Auto-Latch Window Restrictor
The Auto-latch window restrictor is suitable for aluminium, PVC or timber windows. These window restrictors are fixed into the frame itself and are concealed from view. When the window is opened, the hook arm catches onto the fixing stud (supplied) and restricts opening. The window restrictor can be manually disengaged by hand if the window is required to be fully open. The window restrictor comes in a stainless steel finish and is available in both left and right hand fittings.
