Espagnolette Retrofit

Hi, was wondering if it is possible to retrofit Espagnolette locking systems to upvc double glazed windows that would usually close by means of a handle either side of the of the opening section which secures shut on a wedge type plastic fitting on the frame.

The windows themselves are about 20 years old and may well be nearing the end of their life, but the option to have espag locks where the windows can be locked on a 'Vent' setting is very appealing without the cost of replacing the entire units, particularly as the glazed units are generally ok.

If it is possible, could you please advise how best to measure the unit to ensure the proper bits are ordered.

Many thanks in advance.
