Many new sliding windows have key locking latches already installed. Some allow the window to be locked slightly open for ventilation. If your home has these window locks they are usually secure enough to keep your insurance company happy. If your home has only a simple nonlocking latch you should secure them with a keylocking sliding window lock or a window grill. Installing window locks yourself will cost AUD$15$20 per window. Having these locks supplied and installed by a locksmith will cost $40$50 per window.

Otherwise it will not fit correctly.
The UPVC frames are affordable and have many benefits over wooden frames or the aluminum frames. They are made from eco friendly material and manufacturing them uses little energy.
