Timber framed double glazed window, side hung sash approx 550 w by 140 h. Proportionally, where would you surface mount
two cockspur handles? I ask because I was visiting and looking out of a window and thought "Why there?". :scratch:

Off the top of my head, (without looking at a window and measuring) probably about 350mm up/down from top/bottom. It could change, depending on the height of the window from the floor.

I recall reading somewhere that the handle should be approximately shoulder level between 56" and 60" from floor level. From there it is then brought to an acceptable aesthetic position. I think the majority of UPVC windows are centred as there is no way of knowing where shoulder height would be in production. What I have said could all be b*llocks though :lol:
