Window furniture: from locks to hinges

Frames are an important part of making your windows and doors secure, but crucial too are their locks, latches, screws and hinges. 

When it comes to window and door furniture, you don’t have to settle for the factory standard, but remember that, unless you specify otherwise when placing your order, that’s exactly what you’ll get. The standard door handles are fine, but if you’re looking for an individual touch do it well before the order is placed.
