We mainly produce door and window hardware, which is used in construction, so we are also a building hardware manufacturer. The following describes the different applications of window hardware.
Sash: In most modern types of window configurations, a sash refers to a part of glass that fixes the glass and installs it in the window frame. A simple way to distinguish window frames and sashes is to identify the operating parts of the window, for example, the open and closed parts.
Sash lock: As the name suggests, the sash lock is used to fix the sash on the window frame. In correctly constructed and installed windows, the sash lock has little relationship with the sealing of the window and is mainly used as a safety measure.
Window Operator: Often called a crank, mechanism or winder-a window operator can help you open and close windows, or more specifically sashes. Traditionally, window operators handle both casement windows and canopy windows. There are many types to choose from, and we will explore some other steps below to help you easily identify and obtain the window operators you need.
Hinges: Window hinges come in a variety of sizes and strengths and can be found on casement windows and awning windows. The hinge works with the operator to limit the opening angle and promote a smooth transition between opening and closing. The key function of the window hinge is to ensure that the operating sash remains square and vertical.
Window balances: Window balances are usually found in double-hung window configurations, also called sash balances, to aid in a smooth transition between opening and closing. In residential and commercial environments, spring-based sash balancing is common. Spring-based window frame balances are usually fixed on the passage of the window frame and move together with the window frame to ensure a fixed tension or to help the window frame to run smoothly.
