Most powered window operators have a less-than-elegant look. Andersen’s new low-voltage Automatic Operator is an exception because it’s built into the window frame. It comes with a wall-mounted controller and a handheld remote that can control up to four windows. A sensor automatically closes the window when it starts to rain. The window won’t operate if the screen is removed (a safety feature that was designed to prevent it from closing on someone’s hand). The operator is available on the company’s 400 series and A series awnings, for window sizes from 2 feet by 2 feet to 5 feet by 4 feet. Added cost is $400 for the first window and $220 apiece for up to three additional ones.
