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.

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.

Positioning roof windows in the Loft.


loft windows location

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.
