Balcony windows are innovative, large roof windows whose sashes when opened create a balcony. The upper sash opens without steps up to 45°. The lower sash can be tilted forward. In order to close the window, locks located by the rails of the frame have to be released. Side safety barriers are integrated into the bottom sash and slide out during opening. When closing the lower sash, balcony rails are hidden inside the window and are not visible above the roof surface. The window is operated by the handle located at the bottom of the upper sash. The window features a multi-point locking system, without a traditional locking assembly. After turning the handle, the sash is locked at two sides of the frame.
Bring the outside in, and the inside out
Contemporary balcony windows are an alternative to traditional and expensive dormer box conversions, with the Galeria from Fakro being the most stunning available. Their twin sash design has a lower element which opens to reveal built-in balustrades and an upper element which opens through 45° as a top hung window.
When closed, balustrades are tucked neatly away, hidden below the window, the profile of which is undistinguishable from a standard duet window so with no element above the roofline there is no risk of dirt accumulating.
