TOP HUNG WINDOW
- Top Hung windows are like traditional casement windows, with one major difference. Casement windows pivot on friction stays mounted on the top & bottom, while top hung windows pivot on friction stays mounted on both sides. It can be used independently or in combination with other windows. They are particularly useful for ventilation. They are placed higher in walls which provide natural light and ventilation, without compromising privacy.Window glazing is held in place against the frame by a small strip known as a ‘bead’. The ‘bead’, runs along each edge of the window sash. it is provided internally for security risk in homes.
- top hung windows are same as casement windows that uses friction stays which is concealed between the window frames and can be an important safety and security measure. They work by restricting the distance that the window can be opened. They’re also useful for those who’d like to leave the window open a tad whilst they’re in the house.
- top hung windows also uses both single & multipoint lock system. multipoint lock system is used to secure the window at a number of points around the frame, making it more difficult for potential intruders to find a weak point they can exploit to gain entry. Multi-point locks are engaged and disengaged via an espag window handle, which most modern windows are fitted with.
