Why cant i fully open my new pvc windows?


I've just moved into a new build flat and ALL of our new windows will only open by about 2 inches? Is this a deliberate safety thing or is there a way of allowing them to be opened fully? I've stared and pressed everything short of forcing them open? Any help much appreciated!

Hi ant, yes you're correct sometimes pending on the flat but they do have a safety catch on them
I.e if your on a 3rd story or higher.
When u open them, there should be a button u may be able to press with "push" on it just have a look and try that.
Kind regards
