Default Window hardwear

I'm searching for window hardwear and specially that part that keeps the window closed. First, what is the correct name for it? The divider is I-shaped. The hindges are on the sides and the window's opens in and out. The divider is betwene inner and outer sils(so we have double glasings). The divider can't be seen from inside. The lowest part of the frame is only on less than 8mm. distance from the Surroundings.
Do you have any idea of a closer that would fit that narrow place?

Hi Esko. Just wondering if you have a picture or sketch of your window?

Shure Doug. Our house is dated back to 1918-1920 and I have never seen window's like this earlier. I would like to find a good looking permanent solution. I thought I might find a satisfying solution here. The counterpart can't be to high because then I can't open the window...

Hey, Esko; if I understand you correctly, you have out swinging, side-hung 'awning' sashes on the outside; and inside swinging, side-hung awning style sashes on the inside?
Basically what we'd call storm windows on the outside.
You're looking for locking latches, not closers?
Over here, the old windows had a sliding rod running through a pivoting hub, screwed to the window stooll...the sill being the exterior bottom ledge...which acted as a means of locking the window in any position. This would have been in addition to the actual lever latch.

this is quite a modern version of the one used in scandinavia originally Dan,here it is just a eye screw,with a small rod that connect the window casing and the window frame and that lock the windows in place,like you showed in the picture..

Hi, Mauro; the problem with the lower rod arrangement is that it interferes with the inner sash, if you have inner and outer sashes. That's why I was trying to confirm which mechanism Esko was talking about. I think it might have been the latch on the divider that he meant(?)...

Hi Dan.
I'm searchin for a closer. The thing that keeps the inner sill closed until the spring. I tryed to explain The situation with the frames and the part of the window that is not moving, or is a part of the wall. The gap betwene frame and wall is 8mm. Do you understand me? If I open the window there can be something that is only 7mm. high because otherwhy the window wouldn't open. The closer should be made of two pieces of somkind of metal. That part which is atached to the frame can be of normal size but the other part must be very thin because the free hight is only 8mm.
Darn. I check the names for the window part's for to morrow so I can explain what th problem is...
