Identifying an exciting new window of opportunity, Pella’s hardware allows select awning and casement windows to be opened with the slide of a knob, rather than the crank of a handle. Integrated into a window’s jamb or sill for a modern, unobtrusive look, the clever control connects to a ball bearing and Kevlar-reinforced belt to open windows in a smooth, continuous motion. As the knob is quite easy to grip and requires little physical effort to slide up or down, it’s particularly well-suited to individuals with arthritis.

Designers Jenn Tuetken, Bill Parcells, Mark Hetrick, Brian Kolb, Todd Bernhagen, Ted Hansen and Paul Schroder, U.S.
