Costs vary depending on the logistics of the building in which the controls are to be installed. Contact the team at L J Pratley today to discover the potential costs involved in installing manual window openers.

Our team will talk you through the options available and which manual window openers are best suited to your unique set up.

In manual window controls, a helical cable runs from the turn handle control, through a conduit attached to the wall, to the window or vent which is required for opening.

Depending on the size and height of the windows, typically a maximum of 4 windows can be operated manually from a remote position. However, all installations are unique � call our team today for more information and to arrange a local survey.

Manual window controls are operated by manually turning a handle, which turns a cable through a conduit, the cable being connected to the window (or windows) which need to be opened.

Manual window controls are a simple rod and gearing system which enables easy opening and closing of high level or hard to reach windows or vents.

Efficient operation of high level venting windows from a single location negates the need for pole mounted hooks or other types of mounted openers which need to be stored safely when not in use.

High level vents can be opened from a single location much more easily and with less effort than if they were not connected to a manual window opener system.

Manual remote window controls enable operation of multiple high level windows from one single position if required

Manual window openers are a popular solution for easy operation of single or multiple high level vents or windows which are hard to reach under normal circumstances.

Manual Window Controls are used widely throughout the Education, Social Housing and Residential sectors, though we have recently introduced a new range of Window Openers specifically geared towards the Home Improvement & Domestic market place.

In the Social Housing sector, we install Manual Window Controls (openers or actuators, closures as well as manual window restrictors and Teleflex winding gears) adapting properties and aiding the elderly or the less able to ventilate their properties and easily open those hard to reach windows.

The majority of our Manual Window Controls are installed within the Education sector. From operating high level vents in school halls to classroom windows, our systems can operate single or multiple vents, providing a comfortable classroom temperature as well as the benefits of natural ventilation.

Within the Commercial sector, our Manual Window Controls (including openers, closures, actuators, restrictors and Teleflex winding gears) are widely used in factories, print works, atria or other industrial applications. At Pratley & Partners our 50 years of window control experience enables us to adapt systems if necessary.

Our bespoke systems have been installed within the Thames Barrier, Buckingham Palace and the BT Tower.
