Starting with our award winning product range the list of innovations is 25 years long - so for brevity here are 10 reasons why Fakro roof windows offer more for both home owners and window installers.
1. Handle at the Bottom
For easier access and use, this allows the window to be positioned higher up the roofline to give a greater spread of natural daylight into the room.
2. V40P Semi-Automatic Ventilation
Giving control of airflow into the room. Option of fully opening or closing the vent without touching or operating the sash.
3. topSafe Anti-Burglary System
Unique reinforced elements to the handle, keep-plate and hinges result in FAKRO offering the most safe and secure roof window currently available on
4. Sash Guiding System
Providing not only protection of the end grain on the sash joints but designed to allow the sash to close correctly within the frame and ensure that all seals work to maximum effect.
5. Close Grained Redwood
Using only slow grown redwood ensures an aesthetically pleasing close grain finish. Guaranteed of being knot free on all visible surfaces.
6. Condensation run off channels
Moisture caused by condensation can escape to the outside thanks to a unique drainage system. Added to fully sealed internal joints which prevent moisture from entering into the timber - resulting in greater durability.
7. Quadruple Sealing System
Wiper and compression seals to the window and sash give a high level of air tightness and a first class weatherseal.
8. U-Values as low as 0.58
Market leading standard window U-value thanks to thermoPro technology and warm edge spacers to the glazing unit.
9. Fully Finished
A fully finished product, even in relation to non-visible surfaces on the sash.
Eco-friendly lacquer or polyurethane used to give a first class finish to all surfaces. Minimal aftercare required.
10. Universal Bracket Fix System
Giving greater choice in the positioning of the window. No fuss L-Shaped brackets are fitted to the side of the window and directly on to the rafters (can also be fitted to the top & bottom if required). Choice of 3 fitting depths to suit most roof coverings.
