Milgard's New SmartTouchTM Lock Features One-Touch Operation

< Return to Archive

Innovative lock combines low-profile styling, ease of use and security

ORLANDO (Feb. 7, 2007) - The new SmartTouch™ lock from Milgard Windows & Doors was engineered to provide homeowners with the style and ease of operation they desire, and with the security they demand.

"With the SmartTouch lock, windows can be opened and closed, locked and unlocked in one smooth motion," said Pete Placido, vice president of marketing at Milgard. "Stylish and strong, it provides homeowners with peace-of-mind knowing their windows are locked and secure."

The SmartTouch lock is available exclusively on Milgard's Tuscany™ and Montecito™ series of premium quality vinyl windows.

Unlike conventional cam-style locks mounted atop window sashes, the SmartTouch has an integrated, low-profile design. The lock mechanism is recessed into the window frame, providing a clean, sleek look. When the window is closed and locked, the latch is down and out of sight. When the window is open, the latch stays open, indicating the window is unlocked.

The SmartTouch lock makes windows inadvertently left unlocked a thing of the past, helping make homes more secure. In fact, it exceeds California forced-entry requirements, known to be among the most rigorous codes in the nation, so homeowners can be assured it is one of the most secure window locks available.
