Window Opening Control Device

Safety around open windows is always important,especially concerning children. New codes are being implemented to regulate the operation of windows to prevent falls. Window Opening Control Devices have been developed and are now available to help meet these codes and safety concerns. The devices are designed to automatically limit the amount of sash opening when a window is initially opened, but also allow an adult to easily by-pass the limit when needed. Please check your local building codes to determine your requirements.

Window Opening Control Device - Clad Casement

SunClad™ USA Casements have the option of having the sash opening limited by our Window Opening Control Device, also referred to as a WOCD. The device automatically limits the opening of the sash to a narrow opening, but it can also be by-passed or disengaged by an adult when more opening is wanted or needed.

Operation
1. Open the sash fully to the limit.
2. Slide the top Red Cover up.
3. With the Red Cover held in the up position, rotate the Orange Tab upward.
4. Crank open the sash to disengage the limiter and open to amount desired.

Note: the device will automatically re-engage itself when you close the window.

Window Opening Control Device - Double Hung

Window Opening Control Device - Clad Double Hung

SunClad™ USA Double Hungs have the option of having the sash opening limited by our Window Opening Control Device, also referred to as a WOCD. The device automatically limits the opening of the sash to a narrow opening, but it can also be by-passed or disengaged by an adult when more opening is wanted or needed.

Operation
1. The device is automatically set to limit the sash operation unless it deactivated by someone wishing to open the window. Open the sash and the WOCD stops it at the limited height.
2. To by-pass the limit, press the WOCD limiter inward. It is spring-loaded and part of the tab will protrude out from the surface of the device even in the by-pass position. Raise the sash upward and it will now continue past the limiter. Raise to desired height.
3. Closing the sash automatically re-activates the limiter.

Colors / Finishes
The WOCD is available in White or Brushed Nickel finishes. It is visible on the face of the side rail of the top sash.
