Kawneer UK fully supports the creation of accessible houses and has been developing solutions that fulfil these requirements for many years. Kawneer is introducing its AA®720 Accessibility Window with Two-Stage Opening Vent.
The product’s operation handle is located at the bottom of the vent, providing full access and control. The opening vent has been specifically designed for high-rise residential applications, but is easily adaptable for multiple markets.
The AA®720 Accessibility Window is side hung inward opening featuring two stages, the first allows natural ventilation to enter the building through a 100mm opening providing natural ventilation in line with Document F and safety compliance with HTM 55 and BS 8213. The second stage allows the window to be fully opened with a security key for cleaning, maintenance and purge ventilation. When closed, the restrictor mechanism automatically re-engages the window for enhanced safety.
Tested to PAS 24, the AA®720 Accessibility Window’s weather and thermal performance provides a greater level of accessibility and comfort for an entire lifetime.
