Window Styles

Casement Windows

Awning and Casement Windows

Awning and casement windows are hinged in different place - awnings are hung from the top and casements open from the side (like a car door).

Both practical, flexible and easy to use.  They offer excellent ventialtion control - you can open them to suit your comfort level and secure them in place with window stays.

Most casement windows are vertical rectangles that have a single pain of glass.  Simple styling that sets them apart form more decorative window types.

Awning 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. 

Bi-Fold Windows

Bi-Fold Windows

A well placed bi-fold window maximises 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.

Sliding & Stacking Windows

Sliding & 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. Vertical (double hung) sliding windows offer a traditional look, making them perfect for traditional style villas.

Louvre Windows

Mixing style and practicality, louvres offer the ultimate in ventilation control. Open them up fully to make the most of a cool summer breeze or partially (even during wet weather) to maintain ventilation and help prevent condensation. For privacy, and to maximise air circulation, place louvres above head height.
