How-to clean the exterior glass from the interior on wood casement windows.
Use the casement handle to crank the window wide open (on 29"-wide frame units, rotate the egress flipper).
You'll notice the sash moves toward the center of the frame a full 4 inches - you can easily reach through the opening between the sash and the frame to wash the exterior glass from inside the home.
Cleaning egress windows
Some windows have optional emergency-exit (egress) hardware identified by red "Open" labels. These windows are designed to provide a wider opening when fully opened. To wash casement egress windows:
- Unlock the sash and crank the roto-operator to position the roto-operator shoe against the "Wash" label on the egress operator slide.
- Push the bottom release levers outward to release the hinges.
- Slide the edge of the sash toward the center of the window opening. The sill hinges will lock in place and position the sash for washing.
- The release lever will automatically reset when the window is closed.
