Both sashes raise and lower for ventilation as well as tilt inward for access to the exterior glass surfaces from inside the room. The sashes tilt in by activating the finger release latches and pulling the top of the sash toward you. The block and tackle balance system is housed in the side jamb track system. A pair of vinyl sash guide tracks are fixed in each side jamb with a balance cover on the upper interior portion of the tracks. The tilting action of the sashes is achieved by the combination of a pair of sash pins, located near the bottom of each side of the sash, and a pair of balance shoes located in the jamb tracks. The balance shoes feature a locking action that supplies tension within the track when the sash is tilted 90°. This feature is useful to help prevent the bottom of the sash from moving up or down while the sash is tilted for cleaning. It will also hold the shoes and springs in position when you choose to remove the sash completely from the window.Sash Tilting and Removal Instructions
The top and bottom sashes secure to one another by means of a cam-action sash lock that is recess mounted in the check rail (or lock rail). Sashes under 32” wide have one lock. Those 32” and wider have two locks.
The flanged lock keeper is recess mounted in the face of the meeting rail of the top sash. This keeper has an extended surface that helps protect the wood near the keeper area from damage from the sash lock in the event that the lock is inadvertently turned to the closed or partially closed position while attempting to close the sash.
A pair of tilt latches holds the top of the sash in the two side jamb tracks. Finger tabs allow you to disengage these from the jamb tracks to tilt the sash inward. The tilt latches have a plastic housing with a spring-loaded tab. A decorative metal top cover finishes the latch assembly. The latches are recess mounted in the top of each sash.
