Awning window sashes open and close using a hand-cranked, gear-driven operator that is connected to a glide hinge system. The operator is located on the sill. An Awning sash is pivot-hinged near the top of the window and the sash opens towards the exterior.
The operator is completed by a cover and folding handle. These are available in two styles: the standard Contoured or optional Contemporary cover and handle.See Finishes
Our Glide Hinge System consists of left and right glide arm assemblies. These glide hinges create pivot points at the top of the sash to achieve upward hinging. A pair of left and right sash levers secure the closed sash.
