Window Styles

Windows function in different ways – some slide, some tilt, some fold back on themselves. By understanding the different types available and how they work, you can better match windows to your needs, and your lifestyle.

All windows available in either timber or aluminium.

Sliding and Stacking Windows

Sliding and stacking windows create a feeling of space and light, and because they often provide more access to open-air than other conventional windows, they also provide increased ventilation.

Sliding windows have the added benefit of not protruding beyond the building, so work well when space is at a premium. When used between a kitchen and outside area, sliding windows are the ideal solution for sociable entertaining.

Awning and Casement Windows

Awning windows are particularly advantageous when placed high up in a bathroom, kitchen or laundry. Because of their design, they allow hot air to escape reducing condensation. Awnings can also be left partly open when it’s raining – so they’re great in winter too.

Casement windows are easy to recognize. A casement window is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges at the side. Casement windows are often held open using a casement stay.

Bifold Windows

A well placed bi-fold window is a simple way of bringing a cafe like feel to your living space.

Suited to wide span openings, bi-fold windows maximise your available view. When fully open, you won’t even notice the window is there at all.

Flexible and robust, bi-fold windows can seamlessly connect areas of your home to the outside, creating a sense of space, light, openness and increasing airflow.
