Vinyl Replacement Window Hardware

Energy efficient Maryland windows

The next phase in the vinyl replacement window manufacturing process is the installation of the hardware.  Two examples of hardware include the balances (keep sash in holding position when raised) and the pivot bars which lock into the balances when the sash of the window is in it's normal position.  The pivot bars allow double hung windows to be tilted inwards for easy cleaning.

Other hardware includes the rollers on slider windows, cam locks to secure the windows and weatherstripping.  Contact points around a replacement windows require special attention to detail and weatherstripping can address places where vinyl meets vinyl for a soft contact point.  Weatherstripping at the sill, often referred to as the bulb seal, is also installed before the window is ready to be fully assembled and shipped for installation.
