NordicAluTimber offers windows that are not only suitable for Scandynavian market but also products that are characteristic for British customers. Outward opening casement windows allow to take advantage of the whole space inside the building. Opening such windows does not cause the need of removing the flowers, decoration, curtains or blinds. Such windows can either be fully opened or just a little for ventilation thanks to the friction brakes, restrictors or the hinges. The combination of comfort of use with the highest quality of manufacturing, very good tightness and energy efficiency cause that it is the most common window among all our customers.
TYPE I (FLUSH CASEMENT)
Outward opening casement window where the sash is flush with the frame is the most popular type of casement window among our customers. All the frames are very slim which gives the impression that the window is bigger than it actually is offering at the same time very interesting aesthetic aspect. The hinges used might be traditional exposed butt hinges (brass, stainless steel or powder coated with any colour) or concealed friction hinges fitted on the top and bottom of the sash. This type of hinges allow to push the sash aside a little bit to access the external side of the window for cleaning. To suit customers' requirement even better this type of windows is offered in two shapes of the frame and sash: square - modern and decorative - traditional.
This type of window is also available with aluminum cladding.
TYP II (STORMPROOF )
Rebated outward opening casement window where the sash overlaps the frame. It is equipped with concealed friction hinges which allow for cleaning the outer part of the sash (easy clean hinges). Additionally this type of window may be equipped with fire escape hinges and so the window might be an emergency exit.
TYP III (SCANDYNAVIAN )
Scandinavian outward opening casement window is again the type where the sash is flush with the frame. However, this type is common mainly in Scandinavia. Since it is a very traditional window it is equipped with traditional exposed butt hinges. It is possible to use opening restrictors to block opening the the window in full especially by children or in case the window is installed rather low in the wall. Normally NordicAluTimber uses multipoint locking espagnolette and handles but it is also possible to use single point locking traditional hooks.
Window of this type with triple glazing achieves the whole window U value of Uw = 1,15 m2K certified by SP Institute in Sweden.
