Door and Window Mechanisms Espags Espagnolette Gearbox
- Date Listed23/03/2019
Windows that have been in use for a long time will at some point start to wear down the mechanism or in some instances, an attempted break-in can lead to faults, or simply the gearbox has never been oiled.
An espag mechanism is the gearbox part inside a window or door frame that’s driven by a handle and keeps the window or door (most times in ireland you lift the handle to secure the shot bolts into place) shut. Often called upvc mechanisms or espagnolette (espag), these mechanisms are one of the most common parts to break in a uPVC window or a PVC/Wood Door.
Once the Espag starts to fail, the window will become more difficult to open and close before it breaks. When a window espag mechanism is broken it will leave you with two situations:
The door or window is closed and you’re unable to open it, or
The door or window is left open and you’re unable to close it.
