Manual Window Controls

Last Updated May 28, 2010 · Written by Jaclyn Fitzgerald

Windows are an essential part of any home, for ventilation, views, and more. Get the most out of your windows with some fantastic manual window controls. Read on for more.

What are Manual Window Controls?

Manual window controls allow you to easily open and close your windows. These controls can be fitted to just about any window, including roof windows and skylights. No more will inaccessible or hard to open windows prove a problem!

There are different types of manual window controls including:

  • Chain openers
  • Screwjack openers
  • Fork and swivel openers
  • Locking openers

The most common manual window controls operate using a winder of some form. Simply turn the winder as much as you like to determine how far open your window is at any one time. Controls such as the fork and swivel openers are perfect for louvre windows.

Options in Manual Window Controls

Manual window controls are discreet and do not stand out, so they will not ruin the look of your windows or interfere with your window coverings. They are available in a range of sizes, and can be colour matched to suit window hardware or your decor as there is a choice of colours available. You can opt to have your manual window control operate just one window or you can have them operate multiple windows at the same time.

Manual window controls can be fitted to new or existing windows and they are perfect if you are looking for an easy window opening solution on a budget, as they are very cost effective and have a long life span. There are window controls ranging from light duty all the way through to heavy duty, so there is no problem opening even the largest of windows.

For options see manual window controls product brochures.
