One of the great things about the Origin aluminium window is its bespoke nature. In this article, we give some information about customising aluminium windows for your home.
Customising aluminium windows explained
Origin slimline and premium windows provide an aesthetically unique aluminium window. First of all, you get a beautiful flush detail on the inside and outside. With this comes a 20-year guarantee, excellent Yale security and impressive U Values.
The Origin aluminium window is just one way you can create a bespoke aluminium window. Our other aluminium window ranges also offer a great choice.
If you are in the market for new aluminium windows, Open Living provides a quality range of windows from Origin, AluK and Smart Systems.
One of the main advantages of aluminium is the thin lines, strength and excellent thermal performance. The other benefit is the vast choice of colours. What you may not know is that there are other options available on our AluK and Smarts aluminium windows as well.
Therefore, our aluminium windows provide solutions for old and new houses and almost every kind of property requirement.
Customising aluminium windows for contemporary or traditional homes.
Another way of customising aluminium windows relates to modern or new build homes as well as cottages and character property. Our suite of aluminium windows is also available with a choice of flat, chamfered and ovolo frame profiles. As a result, you get to choose a window with a modern flat appearance or a softer rounded look.
The opening sashes of our aluminium windows also come as flat or profiled designs as well. Therefore the option to mix and match, frame and opening vent create an individual window. Furthermore, dummy sashes replicate the look of original timber windows.
Finally, there are dual colour windows for properties with a mock Tudor appearance. Here we combine black aluminium outer frames and mullions with white opening lights.
Steel styled casement windows are slim, provide an industrial look and are great for general metal window replacements.
Customising aluminium windows – your opening options
You can order Smarts Aluminium Windows and our AluK range 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 the creation of larger than average opening windows. Commercially these windows are widely used creating 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. Consequently, we can build significant expansive glazing such as floor-to-ceiling windows.
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. Therefore, 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.
