Enhancement - GLASSvent® UT Windows now feature ADA-compliant operators

New GLASSvent® UT Window Handle Delivers ADA Compliance with Style

Product Features

Purpose built with accessibility in mind

01 Kawneer has added a functional and aesthetically pleasing new ADA compliant operating handle option for GLASSvent® UT (Ultra-Thermal) Project-Out Windows. 

  1.  Available on AW Version (4 3/8″/111.1 mm depth), project-out awning GLASSvent® UT Windows up to standard AAMA gateway test size.
  2.  The handle has been laboratory-tested and proven.
  3.  The ergonomic and stylish Omni Drive™ operator from Caldwell features an attractive design with its easy-to-use horizontal handle movement and comes in two sizes:  a 12” handle size for ADA compliance and an 8” handle size for other non-ADA applications.

This new option provides a solution to meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) recommendation that operable windows require no more than a five-pound operating force* while also providing a coordinating handle for non-ADA applications.

*Laws and building and safety codes governing the design and use of glazed window products vary widely. Seller does not control the selection of product configurations, operating hardware or glazing materials, and assumes no responsibility therefore.

Omni Drive™ is a trademark of Caldwell Mfg. Co..
