I have some odd windows at the house that are not common slide up double hung windows. See diagram below 'awning' and 'hoppers'. They are about 2 foot square made of wood with plexiglass. I know I need to replace the plexiglass.
Windows are functionally weak and the plexiglass can be trivially pushed in.
If I put glass in, that would definitely help, but I'm looking for an 'add-on' that I can do rather quickly.
One slides into the house wall as if it were a double hung, without the top section. That too has plexiglass in it. It is likely these were made custom on-site when the house was built.
The screen is a separate wood frame but is missing on these windows.
- Bars on inside - possibly iron pipe secured to frame. I never use these windows.
- Rebuild frame for screens (moderately difficult and time is a factor here)
- frame for screens could be blocked smaller than a person - I have done this already for a vertical window just enough to allow me to put a dual fan unit in it. Ugly but functional.
- Decorative sheet aluminum grating on outside (not as secure, but fast enough)
- Could also put proper screen material under it.
- Build the 'screen frame' and put glass in it - but how ?
Reject the special 'security screens' as probably too costly and not available locally. Ugly is not a factor, speed and reasonable security is.
Any other ideas?
