Frequently Asked Questions

ActivWall Gas Strut windows can be closed with the purchase of our optional pull hook. As shown in this video demonstration, the pull hook provides an easy way to close the window from inside the building. Our Gas Strut windows can also be closed manually without a pull hook.

We do not manufacture any screens ourselves, but we can recommend a custom screen company that can help you. For Gas Strut windows, customers often get screens that roll up and down, or screens that are removable and can snap into the opening.

The width of the “opening” is the measurement used – from stud to stud. For the height, the measurement begins at the header and runs to the bottom of the sill channel (or the countertop if no sill is chosen). If there is currently another window in place, the inside measurements of the current window frame (not the glass) will typically work, although be sure to speak to your ActivWall sales person about this – images of the opening may be needed to determine the correct measurements. 

Most homeowners will want to find a reputable contractor or handyman with some experience installing windows to install their ActivWall Gas Strut Window. Three people are recommended for the process, and installation instructions are provided with every window as well as phone support from ActivWall.

We offer three options for the bottom of our gas strut window:

  • Raised Sill – offers maximum temperature and moisture protection and is recommended for unprotected openings and in hot/cold climates. *requires embedding of the sill frame (see image below)
  • Saddle Sill – offers reduced protection but is a compromise between the raised sill and no sill options. *requires embedding of the sill frame (see image below)
  • No Sill – offers no additional protection from moisture and temperature, but allows for a smooth surface underneath the window.
