windows & doors PRODUCTS EDITORS' CHOICE Stainless-steel hardware Stainless-steel hardware: * No lacquer protective coating required * For all door-material types * Traditional bronze also available Hardware for the company's balanced doors is available in stainless steel. Manufactured with #316L alloy stainless steel, the material does not require a lacquer protective coating and is said to not tarnish over time. The hardware can be used on all door-material types: stainless steel for a matching finish, extruded aluminum (painted or anodized), wood, or bronze for a contrasting look. Traditional-colored bronze balanced hardware is still available for use on any door where a bronze finish is desired. Ellison Bronze Inc., Falconer, NY Circle 85 Pull-handle casement An ADA-compliant, pull-handle casement window can reach 34-in. in width and 103 lb. and can be customized in these ranges. The multipoint hardware is available in a variety of finishes, which include oil-rubbed bronze, natural nickel, brush finish, and satin nickel. The handle includes a multi-lock system that eliminates the need for a top handle, while still providing maximum performance. The handle is located at the bottom of the window and is therefore accessible from a wheelchair.
