Cockspur upvc Door Handle Urgent Advice

Postby Smash99 » Thu Jan 09, 2020 7:15 pm


New to the forum and needed some advice.

Just bought a new house and have been renovating. Since looking at blinds for the house I have noticed that I have an existing cotswold cockspur window handle on all the upvc windows.

The handle sticks out roughly 5.5cm from the frame which seems stanard, however on bay windows n the bedroom this will naturally let ni more light from the sides as the blind has to sit further out to avoid the handle. Has anyone got any suggestions on an alternative cockspur handle which I could use and install that has a much smaller depth to then allow the blinds to sit that little bit closer to the window? We are moving into the house in a few weeks and need to get blinds ordered but if this handle doesnt work we may have to order an alterntive to blinds.

Any advice or help would be really appreciated.
