How to create the ideal aluminium window.

The Origin aluminium window is just one way you can create a bespoke aluminium window. Our other aluminium window ranges also offer even more choice.

If you are in the market for new aluminium windows, Open Living provide a quality range of windows from Origin, AluK and Smart Systems.

One of the main advantages of aluminium is the thin lines, the strength and the excellent thermal performance. The other benefit is the huge choice of colours. What you may not know is that there are other options available on our AluK and Smarts aluminium windows as well.

Our aluminium windows provide solutions not just for every room in the house, but for virtually any type of home as well.

Aluminium windows for contemporary or traditional homes.

Our suite of aluminium windows is available with a choice of flat, chamfered and ovolo frame profiles. This means you can choose a window with a modern flat appearance or one with a softer look.

The opening sashes of our aluminium windows are also available in flat or profiled designs as well. You can even mix and match. For example, many London homes feature profiled outer frames with flat opening sashes. Other properties feature dummy sashes, typical of the original timber windows.

There are also other types of properties with a mock Tudor appearance where we combine black aluminium outer frames and mullions with white opening lights.

Aluminium windows give you many opening options.

Our Smarts Aluminium Windows and our AluK range can be ordered in one of six different opening choices.

  • Open out casement windows
  • Open in bottom hung windows
  • Tilt and Turn Windows
  • Top swing reversible windows.
  • Horizontal or vertical pivot windows
  • Sliding windows.

The different ways aluminium windows can open mean you can choose an aluminium window for any room, location and environment.

Large opening aluminium windows.

Both AluK and Smarts windows come with a ‘heavy duty’ opening light. This is a profile that enables larger than normal opening windows to be created. Commercially these windows are widely used created large opening windows at up to 1500mm square. However, they also have uses in the home as well.


If you are creating a contemporary extension and want the flexibility of large windows that can also open a heavy duty opening light is available.

The heavy duty opening light is used to create large windows such as windows to a roof terrace. We can even incorporate an aluminium window in a bifolding door if required. This is becoming quite popular as people look to provide some form of ventilation to a room within a set of folding doors.

How aluminium windows can open and close.

If you are looking to create high level windows you can choose manual or automatic opening. You can control your windows with a discreet rotating handle connected by hidden cables or at the touch of a button.

Other options for opening your windows are locking handles, folding openers or bar handles.
