Pella’s Impervia line of casement and awning windows has added a new window operating system, dubbed the Easy-Slide Operator. This new component allows for smooth opening and closing without the need for cranking.
Using a ball-bearing system and a Kevlar-reinforced belt, the discrete hardware can be placed on the jamb (for casements) or the sill (for awnings) and requires only five pounds of pressure to activate. The curved horizontal tab has a thickness that reduces pinch gripping and pressure points. An internal brake system secures the window in place at any point. Finished with a heavy-duty powder coat that resists chipping.
