  • Publication number: 20060150561
    Abstract: A window assembly having a window frame and at least one primary sash mounted in the window frame. The primary sash has a plurality of sash members forming a primary sash perimeter and a first glazing panel mounted in the primary sash perimeter. At least one secondary sash is pivotally attached directly to the primary sash perimeter along an interior surface thereof so that the secondary sash is rotatably movable between a closed position and an open position relative to the primary sash. The secondary sash has a plurality of secondary sash members forming a secondary sash structure and a second glazing panel mounted in the secondary sash perimeter. An air chamber is located between the primary sash and the secondary sash that is substantially closed to the interior of the building structure. At least one accessory channel is locating along at least one side of the secondary sash members.

  • Publication number: 20060151129
    Abstract: A window covering drive system mountable in a sash frame, such as an interior sash, for use in operating a window covering mounted to the sash. The drive system including a drive component couplable to the covering, the drive component including a belt and a belt tensioning mechanism providing pre-tension in the belt and sustaining tension during operation of the drive system. The drive system also including an operator assembly slidably mounted to the sash and coupled to the drive component, such that linear motion of the operator assembly results in movement of the belt and rotary action of the drive component to operate the covering. The drive system may include a frame connecting corner lock configured with features that couple to the drive component. Additionally, a covering operating mechanism may be included having a lift spool with a varying diameter about which a lift cord is wound and unwound.

  • Publication number: 20060150514
    Abstract: A window or door assembly having a secondary sash hinged to a prime sash and movable between a closed position and an open position toward an interior region. The prime sash is coupled to a frame. A compressible member biases the secondary sash toward the open position. A latch assembly is provided including a plurality of retractable latching elements each biased to an extended position to retain the secondary sash in the closed position. The latch assembly includes a sliding operator accessible from the interior region and slidable along an edge of the secondary sash to sequentially displace the retractable latching elements to a retracted position sufficient for the compressible member to move the secondary sash toward the open position. The present invention is also directed to a method of operating the latch assembly.

  • Patent number: 7066505
    Abstract: A window handle assembly for use with a window having a moveable sash. The assembly including a window handle having a pivot mechanism. The handle pivotable at the pivot mechanism between open and closed positions. When open, the handle is free to rotate to move the sash between open and closed positions. When closed, the handle engages a cover to provide a sleek, aesthetically pleasing handle structure for the window. The assembly also including a lock activating mechanism coupled to the pivot mechanism and operationally couplable to a sash lock mechanism. The lock activating mechanism configured to operate the sash lock upon pivoting movement of the window handle. Opening of the handle opens the lock and closing the handle closes the lock. This mechanism including a sliding bar connectable to the sash lock and a movement mechanism causing sliding movement of the bar upon pivoting movement of the pivot mechanism.

  • Patent number: 4702297
    Abstract: A rolling window screen assembly is provided for a window frame having a sill, a head and opposite side jambs. The screen assembly comprises a screen mounted at the head of the window frame and being unrollable along the jambs thereof. A pair of guide members are mounted on and extend along each side jamb for guiding the opposite edges of the screen as the screen is unrolled along the jambs. Control levers adjacent each side edge of the screen frictionally engage the guide members so as to control the position of the screen along the guide members. The guide members are mounted to the window frame jambs by a plurality of L-shaped clips which extend through a corresponding slot in the respective guide members. A spring is positioned in each guide member for centering the unrolled screen between the pair of guide members.
