The question we were asked was:- “How do you manually open and close a wide fanlight?”
The answer was to use a double quadilent stay as shown here.
In our own workshop we adapted the standard single stays, linking them with a 600mm long bar. There was a total of nine required.
The fanlights were out of reach, so we made some wooden poles to enable them to be effortlessly operated. As we have a wood turning facility for our Arbor range this was easy to achieve.
The project was in Lithuania, but we were able to check the window manufacturer`s drawings to ensure the products would fit satisfactorily.
If you have an overseas renovation project and need some bespoke accessories, please get in touch as we would be happy to help.
