Posted in Window Parts, on September 08, 2021
As beautiful as home windows might be, they have great importance in our daily lives. In fact, their functionality actually enhances day-to-day life in a residential home. As such, homeowners should understand their awning window hardware in an effort to maintain optimum window performance.

Understanding Window Parts
By understanding the anatomy of a window, homeowners can learn how to replace faulty window hardware and get things running smoothly. Best of all, by ordering from the Window Hardware Company, it's possible to install most replacement parts without having to replace an entire window.
Window Sash: This is the part of the window that holds the glass in place and allows the window to open and close properly and efficiently. Window sashes are manufactured from various materials, such as wood, aluminum, fibreglass, and vinyl.
Sash Limiter: The sash limiter is designed to prevent damage to the window from strong and gusty winds. Sash limiters can be detached to clean a window and can also be removed and replaced when broken or damaged. The replacement parts are readily available from the Window Hardware Company.
Operator: A window operator is also referred to as a window crank. When it’s broken or damaged, the crank can be replaced without replacing the entire window. If a crank arm is worn or if the gears are stripped, a new part is the best option for restoration. Visit our website to find a perfect match for your window.
Locks: Window locks provide home security and ensure that the window is shut tightly. An airtight closure prevents rain, dust, and snow from intruding. When a window is rusted or broken, it can easily be replaced, restoring the window completely.
Casings: Window casings are installed around the window frame to seal the window and block air from entering the house. Depending on the window structure, casings are installed on the exterior part of the window but can be installed on the interior.
