The doors,hinges, perimeter jambs and head, and the seals were all damaged in the storm. only a new bifold would be appropriate, repair was out of the question.

Cheap chinese awning sashes vs The Window Man Sash

Finished Product

Chinese products are changing the building landscape here in Australia.

Some of the products are world class, and superb. the vast majority isnt.

A builder brought in some aluminium awning sashes he got from China. I am not sure they are even legal.

When you are building or renovating a house, make sure you are comparing apples with apples.

Aluminium Awning Window

Finished Product

We make a fair few of these style aluminium windows.  Commercial frame (101mm x 44.5mm) with an awning sash and lockable whitco chain winder.  Fly screen on inside.

The awning has no hinges or stays, and instead has a hook on the head and a matching hook on the top of the sash.  No moving on this turning point means nothing will wear out and break (as do hinges and non-friction stays after years of use)

Thought id take a photo before delivering it to a job site this morning.
