Sliding doors and windows
You can open or close these windows and doors by sliding them from one side to the other. They require more maintenance as compared to other types of uPVC doors and windows.
Applications: Ideal for places with limited space, flats, walkways, decks, etc.
Casement doors and windows
Casement doors and windows are commonly used across the world. They come with a side hinge swinging outward for opening with ease and provide good ventilation while allowing enough light to enter your space.
Application: Ideal for small windows, Kitchens, Bedrooms, AC rooms, etc.
If you want a window that offers high insulation and resistance from the outside world but also provides an amazing outside view, opt for fixed windows. You cannot open these windows as they are permanently attached to the wall.
Application: Workspace, buildings with any architectural style, etc.
Tilt & Turn doors and windows
These are low maintenance doors and windows wherein windows can be opened from top/bottom or left/right and doors can be opened from left or right. They are visually appealing and allow proper ventilation and sunlight to enter the space.
Application: Rooms with garden or terrace, living rooms, etc.
French doors and windows
You can use French doors as both interior and exterior doors as they can link two rooms or spaces. These doors and windows are highly energy efficient as they transfer the light from one room/space to the other.
Application: Idea for first-floor windows, balconies, gardens, etc.
