Ways and Instructions for Opening Windows - Worth Knowing Before Buying!

Note the window specification

When designing and ordering windows, your specifications, including drawings and sketches, are presented several times before production begins. Drawings of windows with the specified elements and explanations are also visible in offers or promotional materials. On such drawings we find a graphic indication of the method and direction of the window opening. It is worth showing knowledge of at least basic markings that allow more precise selection and reduce the risk of misunderstandings when ordering.


Three types of windows are used in residential construction: normal windows, balcony windows and skylights. We can divide them according to the way the wings are opened: fixed (not opening), tilting, rotating, tilting, sliding.

Fixed windows are typically used in utility rooms such as a garage or basement. Non-opening windows are also used in large glazing such as panoramic windows or terrace systems. These include, for example, lifting and sliding windows (HS), tilting and sliding windows (PSK) and top-hung windows.


Left or right?

The way to open windows is one thing. You should also note the direction in which to open the sash. The choice, right or left, isn't that obvious. It's worth considering both options. A well-chosen direction can pay off more practically, while a poorly chosen window can even reduce the usable space in the room.

In the window industry we most often find definitions of the direction of the sash opening based on the position of the hinges on the window frame. If the hinges are on the right, it is a right window (R window). If the hinges are on the left, it is a left window (L window).


How do I choose well?

It should be noted that the way and direction of opening the windows greatly affects their functionality, as well as the rooms in which they are located. In order not to make a mistake when choosing the windows of your dreams, you should understand the basic differences between the types of windows and recognize the basic designations in the drawings.
