Awning windows can be motorized for ventilation. Awnings over 48" wide would be equipped with tandem motors.
Awning motors are chain drive, and will open the window out at the bottom to about 10" of opening.
Motors can be controlled by the full house computer system or by individual switches near the window. Typically motors are 24 volt dc for tandem use. 110 volt ac motors are available for single motor applications.
Awning motors can be supplied with full length motor covers or motor covers can be minimized to cover only the motor area. Motor covers are made from break shaped steel and finished to match the patina color of the window system.
