Title: Whole life performance of domestic automatic window controls

Ref Code: IP3/02
Authors: S L Garvin

Abstract1: The potential for increasing the use of automatic windows in housing for elderly or disabled people, children and shorter people, and for inaccessible locations such as rooflights is significant. Purchasers should consider whole life costs, as well as initial costs of the controls, as maintenance can significantly affect ongoing costs. Automatic window controls generally work well when installation is good, and user satisfaction is high. However, poor installation can lead to failure or the need for maintenance.
