Window friction stays regulate the amount of pressure applied to a window, allowing it to move freely but not slam shut or extend open too far. This model is universal and can be used on a wide range of windows where friction stays are already installed. This model has a 13mm groove, which is an older style. This version has a 17mm stack-height measurement, but we also offer a 13mm stack-height version
Handing: The stays you are replacing should have an L or an R printed on them, dictating which handing should be selected. If you wish to purchase both, select 'Left' and add to your cart, then select 'Right' and add to your cart.
Packers are available for the 13mm stack sizes to match them up to 17mm version, these must be purchased separately.
These are available in 10inch, 12inch, 16inch, 20inch and 24inch lengths.
Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a look at one of our product review videos.
More importantly, the product that we're actually having a look at today is range of friction stays. They're designed for windows, for UPVC windows. What's so special about this particular range is they're designed for the oldest style of windows that used to have a narrower groove. The groove that is industry standard these days, that little channel that sits in the frame is 16mm, but on this particular range it's only 13mm. This particular groove here is only 13mm wide, so that's the reason why we call these a narrow groove.
Like I say, they're quite an old style, so you won't see them in a modern and in a new environment. But if you're wanting to replace a set of hinges on a window, then top-deck is to actually measure that groove to make sure that you've got the right size. Then it might be that these are the ones that you're looking for.
The ones that we have here is the actual top-hung. They're also available in a casement-hung version as well. This one here I have is a top-hung, so in other words, the window would actually come out like that no problem at all. Obviously the casement ones are if the window is hinged that way or that way. They're called then a top-hung and obviously a side-node hung as well.
The actual top-hung versions, they're available in a couple of different lengths. They start at 10 inches, then they go up to 12, they go to 16 and 20 and finally a massive 24 inches inlet. They got massive amount of range that are on this.
One thing I want you to bear in mind as well is that also you need to measure what we call a stacking-hat. In other words, by the time you close the actual hinge all down, is how thick this particular part is. Industry standards are either 13mm or 17mm. The choice is up to you. If you're a maintenance company, you think to yourself, "I'm going to keep a couple of these on the shelf." Instead of keeping a range of 13 and a range of 17mm, we here do a range of packers, and these packers will allow you to sit those on there all with the fixings on the screws, and it will allow you to pack this out, so therefore then a 13 will become a 17mm stacking hat. So little packers there which are available as an optional extra on our site, should you need them.
On the side-hung type casement style window, these come in two different sizes. They either come in a standard . . . they come in 12 inches and 16 inches in length. That's what they come in as standard.
So there you go, guys. Like I say, these are the narrow style versions. That's the reason for these.
