Casement 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. A casement sash can be opened up to 90° perpendicular to the normally closed position.
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 lower and upper glide arm assemblies. The lower set is connected to the crank operator. These glide hinges create pivot points at the top and bottom of the sash to achieve left or right hinging, depending on your choice. Hinging is specified as viewed from the exterior.
The Glide Hinges are adjustable to fine-tune the sash alignment and operation.
The Single Lever Latching System consists of one lever that activates three latch points along the side of the sash. This multiple-latch system provides uniform closure over the entire height of the sash. The latch lever and surround trim match the finish chosen for the operator handle. Sash Snubbers on the hinge side of the sash and jamb prevent bowing when the sash is closed.
