The logic behind a gas strut window is a simple one: the large pane is held in place with a top-mounted set of hinges, and swings out and open by virtue of a pair of gas struts mounted on either side. They are very popular in the service industry and open-air shops in the amenable climates such as ours, but lately they have become increasingly popular in the urban housing market.
These windows possess a notable advantage: by using these lifting gas struts, you are not limited to the size of the window. Ordinarily, a window is limited in size by the weight of the window itself. With these lifting struts, you can lift a window that would defeat the lifting power, or convenience, of the owner. They have the potential to save aching backs and legs, while still providing expansive views outside. Automation is even a possibility if your fancy a hands-free version
These windows allow you to make the best use of any notable view, and are especially popular for linking a cooking area and a deck. Rather than the relatively obstructed view providing by typical windows, your CGA can produce a gas strut window that makes the view whole while still being moveable, so you can open the entire area up, and allow free access, and movement of air.
No need to stress about the bugs – a retractable insect screen can easily be added to any gas strutted awning.
