    Anyone had any experience in alarming Shugg style windows? ie. Double hung windows which only have a sheet of glass and therefore no easy way of attaching a reed switch.

    Any tips would be helpful.

    Interesting concept. Not at all "secure" as a double-hung unit - since they are just supported on a cord between the 2 sections, you can simply lift the lower pane to gain access. Also seems a bit silly (to me) having to have the bottom open when all you really wanted was the top opened.

    Anyway, I can see 2 ways to alarm them. Firstly, just stick the magnets onto the glass as-per normal (of course, that'd look ugly)

    Alternatively, why not incorporate the magnet into the side frames - there is a considerable space in there that can be used. Take a look at the cross section BB on this PDF
    http://www.shugg.co.nz/media/techdrawings_pdf/doublehung/dh1001.pdf

    Basically, it seems to be just a "standard" aluminium window, but with the sliding bits recessed inside the side rails. Therefore it can be alarmed the same way as any normal aluminium window. Or did I miss something?
