Yes both can be changed. Window locking handles are all very much similar and I would advise for extra security either window restrictors or sash jammers depending on your requirements. Door locks as a minimum should be changed to an anti snap cylinder and again depending on your requirements and budget look at ERA 3 star B.S. insurance approved cylinders or Ultion 3 star cylinders. Contact a locksmith who would be able to advise you correctly depending on your requirements.

To change the lock on a UPVC door it would just be a case of changing the cylinder and in the case of the window it would only be the window handle that would need replacing as this is the part that locks, a window repair company or a lock smith would easily be able to change these for you.
