Electrically Opening Large Side Hung Windows

Updated: Jun 6, 2022

Mounting electric window opening systems on side hung windows were usually for the requirements of smoke ventilation regulations. It will automatically open the windows for the smoke vent when smoke/ fire happens. It could be a more convenient method for opening a row of windows for the daily vent.

The Advantages of electric window opening systems on side hung windows

  1. With a larger vent area: The window hinges are on the side frame. Therefore, the windows may be designed larger than 1 square meter.

  2. It is more labor-saving: With only one linear actuator may open about 0.5 square meter window. If you installed two linear actuators on the top and bottom, the windows would be closed more tightly. The lifespan will be longer for windows but also for window frames.

  3. Extra middle pillar between the two window sashes: The should be an extra pillar in the middle of two window sashes. Although, it smaller the view of windows. But the additional pillar can solve the time lag problem between each window actuator.

The vent area of each window is about 1.5 square meters. There was one KST-A01 linear actuator on each sash. The electric window opening system could open stably and close tightly as for the Wall Switch, with a transparent case to prevent it from inadvertently touching. Attentions, before opening or closing windows, please make sure there was no obstacle on the window frame.

There was an open space on the top floor. We installed two KST-A02 linear actuators on each window for electrical operation. Install two actuators on each window sash to make the windows stand the high wind pressure. The window system supports the smoke vent and the daily natural vent. All KST-A02 linear actuators were made with customized colors, anodized treatment to gunmetal grey.


👉 Case: Smoke Vent Windows In An Eldercare Center

The eldercare center was renovated recently. All windows were replaced by the stainless steel window frame. With the help of electric window opening systems, elders could operate windows without any help from staff.


👉 Case: Automatic Windows In A College Building

This casement window is located at the end of the aisle. The window opening system is for the smoke vent and to improve the natural vent of the building. Bring fresh and cool air inside the building. With an additional handle made for KST-A01, each window could open to about 85 degrees.


👉 Case: Automatic Windows In A High Ceiling Store

There are usually many high-level windows in those high ceiling stores. These windows play an essential role in the daily vent. In this project, we installed KST-A02 linear actuators as window actuators. The linear actuators were customized color to dark grey, the same as the window frame. It makes the window system more integrated with the original window frames. Windows can be operated individually by our simple window control units. People can easily operate the windows through remote controllers.


👉 Case: Smoke Vent Windows In The Elevator Hall Of An Apartment

The smoke vent windows are usually designed as side hung types in the elevator hall of apartment buildings. In this project, there are 4 windows on each floor. We installed KST-A01 linear actuators as window actuators. We were wiring the linear actuators together to operate the windows at the same time. While the windows were opened, they provided nearly 100% of the vent area. It is for exhaust the smoke when there is a fire.


The windows are normally closed. They can be triggered by the central fire system or a manual switch. If residents need to improve the daily vent, there are several manual jalousie windows. People can open the jalousie windows according to the weather instead of the windows for the smoke vent.

 

Suppose you are considering installing automatic window openers on your windows. Please send us: photos/ drawing with the dimension of your windows. We could help you plan an electric window operating system and improve the daily vent by quickly opening high windows.
