Contractors installing windows in harsh environments know that durable hardware matters to homeowners. Simonton Windows, a leader in the manufacturing of vinyl windows and patio doors, has announced that stainless steel casement and awning window hardware is now available as an upgrade option on these popular styles -- in all Simonton brand products.
“Casement and awning windows are popular styles in and around coastal areas because they maximize the amount of natural ventilation and light that flows into the home,” says Gary Pember, vice president of marketing for Simonton Windows. “Stainless steel is the perfect complement to these windows because of its durability and resistance to long-term, corrosive effects of sea spray and excessive exposure to moisture in wet climates. Installation professionals can now offer this hardware option to their customers as a perfect upgrade to the durable and weather-resistant properties inherent in our vinyl windows.”
In addition, a beautiful, new “nesting” crank handle on casements and awnings comes with this upgrade. “Homeowners will love the fact that this handle folds down and does not obstruct their blinds or window coverings,” Pember noted. “This gives the window a sleek appearance that is easy to access, but tucks away when not in use. Builders and contractors can begin offering the new Simonton hardware upgrade option immediately that will provide years of benefits to their customers.”
