RollerTrol™ 12v Awning Window Opener Motors

12v awning window motorsRollerTrol™ awning window opener motors are an innovative and convenient solution for homeowners who want to automate their windows (with no shock hazard).

These motors are designed to be easy to install and use, and they provide a number of benefits that make them a great investment for home or office.

If you have really large windows with a lot of frame flex, you may want to put an actuator unit on either side, rather than centered in the window.

Please keep in mind that these chain actuator motors can also be controlled by a multi-channel remote control . You can open the awning windows when the temperature gets too high in the building, and close the windows when the temperature cools off.

They are also equipped with overload protection, which prevents the motor from burning out if it encounters an obstruction while opening or closing the window.

One of the key benefits of RollerTrol™ window motors is that they allow you to open and close your windows with the touch of a button. This means that you can easily adjust the amount of ventilation in your home without having to manually operate each window. This can be particularly useful in rooms that are difficult to access, or in homes where the occupants have mobility issues.
