Milgard’s SmartTouch® window lock is our award-winning window lock with simple one-touch operation.
The technical term for it would be “assistive window hardware,” but you’ll simply think of it as the easiest, smartest way to lock and unlock a window that has ever been invented. The SmartTouch window lock is available exclusively on our Tuscany® and Montecito® premium vinyl windows.
You won’t be alone either. The user-friendly operation, assistive technology and highly secure SmartTouch window lock is fast becoming a winner among homeowners of all ages and physical abilities. Milgard is the first window manufacturer to receive the Arthritis Foundation Ease-of-Use Commendation for the SmartTouch window lock's innovation and universal design. It also won a prestigious IDEA award (International Design Excellence) from the Industrial Designers Society of America.
Streamlined and intuitive.
The SmartTouch window lock mechanism is incorporated into the window sash for a sleek, low-profile design. It operates effortlessly: one smooth, single motion opens or closes the window. No pinching, squeezing or twisting. Designed to engage with simple one-touch operation and locking, it's easy to use.
Security at a glance.
When the handle is down, the window is locked. When the handle is up, the window is unlocked. Since 90 percent of all residential break-ins result from windows that are inadvertently left unlocked, SmartTouch truly offers peace of mind you can see.
Stronger and 25 percent better.
Using AAMA certification testing guidelines, independent lab engineers demonstrated that the SmartTouch lock exceeds rigorous California forced-entry codes by 25 percent. The SmartTouch window lock exceeds homeowner requirements, too. The lock assembly is made from die-cast zinc so it's not only tough; it's built to last.
