Life Enhancing Window

Designers and architects are beginning to address the needs of a more diverse range of clients. There is a huge interest in houses and condominiums to be designed to make it easier for people with limited mobility to live independently at home for longer. Windows, in particular, can cause difficulties, as some people with limited mobility are unable to comfortably utilize the standard window handle on the side of the frame.

With this in mind, APA Facade Systems have designed the Life Enhancing Window. By positioning the handle at the bottom of the window, this turn and tilt system gives the user continuous access to the handle, allowing them to open and close the window with minimal effort.

​Our Life Enhancing Window is compatible with our ST window suite. This system comes with a choice of thermally efficient polyamide cores ranging from (15/16”– 1-3/4”). Depending on the system, the glazing aperture can vary from 1-1/8”– 2-1/16”, allowing a choice of infill panels to suit thermal and acoustic performance requirements.
