      The pursuit of naturally ventilated building solutions has become a vital component when considering the design of hospitals which is driven by a desire for a healthier environment.  The purpose of ventilation is to move stale air from within a building replacing it with fresh air from the outside.
      Kawneer's response to this requirement has been the development of key products within it's suite of windows including the AA®3110HW Horizontal Sliding window, AA®3610/AA®3610LS Vertical Sliding windows, AA®601TE Parallel Opening Window and the AA®542 Pivot window.
