This type of wood window opening is normally used in Denmark, Norway, France, Finland, and Sweden. They are popular in the coastal countries because an outward hand of a wood window when exposed to a strong wind makes a wing to be tightly pressed to the casement contributing to proper insulation. We carry out an individual approach to each client, selecting the options fully satisfying their needs or requirements.
Scandinavian type wood windows options for opening.
180° tilt-and turn wood 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.
