Windows of Scandinavian type
This type of window opening is normally used in Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Sweden. They are popular in the coastal countries because an outward hand of a window when exposed to a strong wind makes a wing to be tightly pressed to the casement contributing to proper insulation. Such windows feature a number of considerable advantages:
· Simple structure
· Better resistance to moisture and wind
· Opening is not interfered by curtains or objects placed on a window sill
· Save space in the room which is especially important, for example, in the bath room
· More light- penetrative than the German type of windows
180° tilt-and turn windows or „Top Swing“. The wing opens from bottom to top; it is possible to turn it completely around 180°, which is helpful for outside glass washing. The handle of special shape and size placed horizontally at the bottom of the door wing facilitates easy-to-use opening and closing.
90° sliding or „Top Sliding“. This opening system is helpful for window-washing when you can get access from the facade. This type of opening provides for maximum air inflow into the room during ventilation. Window handles are included into the delivery package of the product.
Tilt- and- turn or„Top hung“. The window wing is raised from bottom to top. It may contain the old-fashioned hinges or handles for closing; hinges can be made of galvanized steel.
A pivoted wing, standard way of window opening or „Side opening“, is available with hinges for window opening and closing in different modes or a handle. According to a client’s request hinges can be made of galvanized steel, white colour or decorative.
Sliding, casement windows or „Side sliding“ present a new type of opening, perfectly easy-to-clean. Especially popular in multi-floor buildings.
A blind (fixed light) or „Fixed window“ consists of a frame and glass unit. The window does not open and is mainly used in case when outside access is available. Blind windows are mostly used for shop window glazing as well as in cases when windows are not supposed to be used for ventillation.
