what does "noting the modern catches"mean?

It was from this room that Tansy Bestigui maintained she had heard a screaming match two floors above. Strike moved up close to the long windows, noting the modern catches, the thickness of the panes, the complete lack of noise from the street, though his ear was barely half an inch from the cold glass. The balcony beyond was narrow, and filled with potted shrubs trimmed into pointed cones.

    A window catch is something you use to keep the window closed. These are a new type of window catch.

    A window catch is the fastening device, located on the inside of the window that will prevent it from being opened from the outside. Modern window catches are less obvious and look better.

    noting the modern catches, they would be for securing the window shut. if u put the catch on the door.. you lock the door.
