Mag-Lock vinyl window locks


Ph: 800/877-9482

Mag-Lock vinyl window locks use high quality, rare earth magnets that maintain their force up to 10,000 years, the company reports. Now standard on Jeld-Wen’s premium vinyl slider and single-hung windows, the lock features a fully concealed mechanism streamlined into the window’s profile. The handle of the lock serves as a latch indicator, emitting an audible “click” when locked. When not secured, the handle is positioned slightly away from the housing to make it easy to tell from a distance whether the window is locked. The lock has passed the industry’s forced-entry resistance test, in addition to tests for water and air infiltration. It can withstand extreme temperatures, and tests show there is no way to disengage the lock using other magnets, nor will it interfere with pacemakers or computer equipment.
