When EcoClassic had its windows NATA tested the EcoTech aluminium awning window performed brilliantly achieving N4, with one exception, the locally supplied (internationally designed) chainwinder, whose base popped off under load. (Yes windowexpert I know...)
Why is this a problem?
This effects the security of the product and the security of your home, someone can easily force a window or a child could fall out (there are rules about how wide a window can open under certain conditions).
We used a different piece of hardware and the window passed, it is our duty to use this hardware from now on. But what if you don't know what hardware was used in testing? Every window test result has a corresponding specification for the window tested down to the screws used (and even this is important).
Ask your supplier for a guarantee that the hardware used in your windows is the same or equivalent in terms of performance as was used under test conditions.
Over the top? I don't think so, safety and security are paramount... I know EcoClassic will make this commitment in our guarantee.
At 'EcoEco', we design windows, we design the best windows, we do it for you, so that when you’re happy we are happy.

How about some decorative film on the window? Will still let light in but obstruct the view of the fence
