Also known as awning windows, these casement windows are hinged at the top, perfect for wet climates as they block out rain.
The main difference between these two windows is the type of bracket used to mount the sash. Both types are available in many different models, with or without glazing bars.
The tophung window is typically slightly cheaper. However, the topguided window is easier to operate and can be fixed in a secure ventilation position, for a better indoor climate.
A tophung window is a traditional window type, with a casement fastener on each side and a stay with multiple fixing points at the bottom. Available with up to four casements.
Please note, this type of window has visible hot-galvanized external hinges.
We recommend using aluminium drip rails, as they greatly improve the life span of wooden windows. Aluminium drip rails are weatherproof and are a lot more wind and rain resistant than traditional wooden glazing beads.
Aluminium drip rails are available in nine different colours or standard aluminium.
Tophung windows are available as timber windows, in quality Nordic pinewood.
Tophung windows are often used in places where no specific locking standard is required, making them one of our most popular products for basement and bathroom installations.
A topguided window is a modern and popular product. It is a perfect fit for almost any type of room, and comes with a simple handle and multipoint locking system. The standard espagnolette handle can easily be replaced with a key-operated handle to conform to any insurance requirements.
The top guided window can be fixed in a secure ventilation position and has hidden hinges, as it is controlled by tracks and slides between the window frame and casement. Available with up to four casements.
The topguided window is available in pinewood, aluminium clad pinewood and uPVC.
