Mila has launched a new ‘Smart Spindle’ espag handle designed specifically for the window repair market. It makes easy work of replacing virtually any PVC-U window handle and is suitable for use with all of the most common PVC-U profile systems in the UK – past and present.

The new Smart Spindle is essentially five handles in one. Based on Mila’s popular ProLinea espag handle, it comes complete with five different spindles as standard in lengths from 9mm to 55mm.

The really ‘smart’ part is the fact that the spindles are completely interchangeable and simply click-fit into place as needed, depending on the requirements of the window.

A clever new rosette in the back of the handle allows positive location of each spindle with an audible click when the lever is rotated through 90º, and the click fit feature ensures that only the correct end of the spindle can ever be inserted.

In line with its policy of delivering products in customer friendly packaging, Mila is offering the Smart Spindle either in blistered packaging for the fast growing trade counter market or in a bagged and boxed version for high volume users.

Mila’s Managing Director Richard Gyde is enthusiastic about the launch. He said: “Replacing window handles used to mean identifying the profile system and choosing the correct handle and spindle length every time. In turn, this meant holding lots of stock of different options and potentially wasting time on site if the right handle wasn’t available.

The stylish ProLinea handle element of Smart Spindle is available in six colours including polished gold, polished chrome, white and black and comes complete with an edge to edge screw cover cap on the rose for a contemporary look.

It is supplied with cut-off screws as standard and in a choice of locking, push button and emergency exit versions. It also meets the enhanced security requirements of Secured by Design and has been tested to 50,000 cycles under load.
