(Hardware and Handles)
Window hardware is critical and will play a role in the performance of a window or door. A key aspects of how a window actually performs from a moisture penetration and air leakage standpoint as well as security and longevity.
The best windows deserve the best hardware, and as such we put premium hardware into all of our operable windows. We include sophisticated mechanisms such as a European-style Tilt-n-Turn window, as well as traditional awning and casement styles.

100-Series Roto Handles
Focus on Function:
EuroLine window and door systems are multi-point locking all the way around the frame – making sure that the opening is locked not only at the handle location, but at multiple points around the operable sash. This ensures much higher moisture and air penetration protection due to tight seal. It also improves the security of your openings since there are multiple lock points within the frame.
We proudly use Roto hardware almost exclusively most of our hardware is stainless steel, ensuring superior corrosion resistance over time. Our windows and doors are assembled by hand and submitted to rigorous quality control inspections, so that we can ensure our products will operate smoothly for decades to come.
See below for the different types of operable windows that we offer, more details on which products use which types of hardware, and how we meet safety and egress code requirements with our hardware.
Egress, Restrictors, and Safety
What is Egress?
Egress is a code requirement ensuring the safety of all occupants in the event of a fire – every bedroom must have a point of egress, usually a window, that occupants can escape out of if a fire were to occur.
If the bottom of an operable window is low enough, it means that the window will need a restrictor to limit the amount that it can open. This restrictor is in place to ensure that any window which could be fallen out of is limited to prevent that from happening.
