What type of windows are folding openers suited for?

Our folding openers are suited for top hung opening outward and centre pivot outward opening sashes up to approximately 3 metres from finished floor level.

What if the window is above 3 metres from finished floor level?

Windows above 3 metres alongside windows in a deep reveal at lower levels may be unsuitable for opening devices operated by pole. For such windows manual or electric winding gear can act as an alternative.

How can I identify which folding opener I need?

When trying to identify which folding opener is most suitable the following are key points to consider:

  • Number of windows requiring openers
  • Window material: timber, metal or PVC-U constructed
  • Window sash and frame dimensions: is there sufficient material to physically allow the folding opener to be fitted?
  • Opening window width and height
  • Are the windows at a height from the floor that will allow operation by hand or will pole operation be required?
