Safety Features of Our Double Hung Windows
With double hung windows, you have the option of choosing one or two interior locks depending on the size of the window. These locks will give you the peace of mind of knowing they can’t be easily opened from the outside.
In addition, double hung windows have ventilation latches. These ventilation latches are staggered and located on inside of the window. Ventilation latches will limit the degree to which you’re able to raise or lower the top or bottom sash. You can now have your windows open, but still feel safe knowing they can’t be opened any further.
Improve Air Circulation in Your Home

Additionally, both sashes can be left open for even more air circulation throughout the home. Since heat rises having the top sash open allows the heat to escape, while having the bottom sash open allows for cool fresh air to enter.
Our ventilation latches will also help to increased airflow. The latches don’t allow the window to open up more than a couple inches. This provides you with fresh air while maintaining the safety you’re looking for.
