The comparisons presented here will help you to choose the most suitable roof window
Pivot windows in loft conversion
Pivot windows are the basic type of roof window. They ensure a flow of fresh air and allow light into the room. These windows open only in a centre pivot method and can be rotated through 180 degrees and this function is used when cleaning the outer pane or operating the awning blind. Centre pivot windows can be equipped with both external and internal accessories.
Top hung windows in loft conversion
Top hung and pivot windows allow light and fresh air into the room, ensure unobstructed access to the window and a wide view to the outside through the open window.
They can be opened in two ways:
- the outward opening function from 0 to 35 degrees enables an easy approach to the window and a wide view
-the centre pivot function is used for cleaning and also operating the awning blind.
-Top hung windows can be equipped with external and internal accessories
Positioning roof windows in the Loft.
The recommended height of installation of roof windows in a loft conversion is 120 cm from the ground (when the average height of rooms is about 250 cm). This allows maximum light into the attic and guarantees good visibility of the outside surroundings.
The installation of windows at this height allows the installation of a standard radiator below the window and the correct fitting of linings and as a result air circulation will be effective and reduce the risk of condensation on the window. When deciding how and where to place roof windows, it is worth bearing in mind that, as a general rule, a number of smaller windows placed in different parts of the roof usually achieves a better effect than one large window.
An extra bedroom (or bedrooms) for your growing family, a radiant modern living room, or even a stylish loft kitchen.
A high of productivity, away from the hustle and bustle of the family household, but only a stride away at the end of the day.
A bright and bold playroom for the kids, a home cinema, a creative studio, or just a room to dream.
