Pivot windows in which the window sash revolves within a window frame, allows a wider opening than is common with other window types. The design of a pivot window also allows for larger than standard window sizes.
Pivot windows are a suitable replacement window choice for homeowners who wish to include maximum ventilation in a room. The pivot window sash is secured to the window frame by a pivot mechanism, located mid-way along opposing window sashes which attach the window sash to the frame. The window can then swing inwards either horizontally or vertically, depending on the location of the pivot mechanisms. This leaves the sash suspended in the middle of the frame, held by the opposing pivots.A replacement pivot window provides a window frame option that can open completely.
Pivot replacement windows have pivot mechanisms which are attached to opposing sides on the middle of the window sash, either on the upper and lower sash for side-to-side pivoting windows or on the side sashes for upper-to-lower pivoting windows. The pivot mechanisms connect the window frame to the window's sash. Using a crank, push action or remote control the homeowner can adjust the window to the desired opening situation. A pivot window rotates in such a way as to allow one half of the window sash to swing outward while the other half swings inward. The windows lock using pivot locks which are fitted into the window sashes and secure the sash to the frame.
