What is a folding arm actuator?2023-06-12T10:29:35+01:00

A folding arm actuator can be fitted to side hung windows, doors and vents and can be designed to open either outwards or inwards. They work via a motorised arm attached to the opening that begins in a folded position and unfolds as it is powered by the motor.

They are popular for windows and skylights in hard-to-reach areas, as part of a natural ventilation system and for AOVs and windows for smoke ventilation.

Where do I position a folding arm actuator on the frame?2023-06-02T16:02:26+01:00

For an open out vent/door, the mounting bracket will be attached at the top of the frame and hold the actuator below the frame edge. When used in an open in vent/door the actuator is mounted to the frame instead and a Z bracket is used between the vent/door and the actuator arm.
