Top-hinged windows open outwards from the base and are fixed at the top. The air can circulate without creating draughts and, if it rains, the water is kept out.
This window is used a great deal in offices and business premises and on curtain walls.
This window is available in PVC and aluminium. In the latter material it is also available with thermal breakAluminium is an excellent conductor of cold and heat and is not an effective thermal insulator.
Thermal Break (TB) consists of preventing contact between the outer and inner faces of the window by fitting a rubber separator between the external and internal profiles to eliminate conduction and increase insulation.
Another advantage of TB is that it improves the sound insulation of the window.. A two-colour finish is possible.
It is recommended to use double glazingDouble glazing – also called insulated glazing or even Climalit – is glazing consisting of at least two panes of glass (interior and exterior) separated by a chamber of dehydrated air guaranteed with a double seal.
Double glazing is an excellent thermal and sound insulator compared to single glazing. Single glazing consists of a single pane of glass and is recommended for internal architecture (internal glass doors, dividing elements, mirrors, environment separators, decorative glass) and external architecture (integrated into rails for balconies or terraces). to improve the sound insulation.
