Awning Pushout Hardware

Parrett awnings are available with a variety of pushout hardware configurations, as opposed to more common crankout hardware applications. Typical pushbars and handles/latches are shown below. Based on the size and weight of the awning sash, Parrett can recommend an optimal hardware solution.

Parrett works with a large variety of hardware vendors and can also source custom hardware. The selections below have been time-tested by Parrett to provide optimal performance. For additional pushout awning hardware configurations please view our Rotating Awning page for more information.

Pushbar Options

Typically a pushout awning with historic pushbars will have a pushbar on each vertical side of the frame that attaches to the vertical sides of the sash.

Pushout Hardware Finishes

The finishes below are available for the hardware shown on this page. Parrett also offers custom plating solutions and other hardware finishes, contact us at for more information.

Polished Lacquered Brass (PB) - The standard finish for most items.
Polished Unlacquered Brass (PBNL) - This finish, though bright when new, will tarnish quickly through use and exposure, to a natural antique finish.

Oil Rubbed Bronze (OB) - A rich, deep, brown finish, produced by oxidation of the brass metal, and protected by a matte lacquer. Over time the areas of the hardware exposed to wear will become lighter and more polished by use, resulting in the appearance of antique bronze.

Satin Nickel (SN) - This finish is produced by lightly polishing a dull nickel plating with a fine abrasive brush. The result is a clean, functional look, not unlike pewter or brushed stainless steel.

Polished Nickel (PN) - This is a smooth, rich, and highly polished finish, often found on high quality bathroom fixtures. Polished nickel has a warmer appearance when compared to chrome plating.
