What are French Windows?

French windows are incredibly popular in the UK. They are beautiful casement windows with a unique floating mullion, this means when your window is open there are uninterrupted views of outside. The expansive glass area floods your home with natural light while doubling as a fire escape. All of our French window designs open outwards; literally opening your room up to the outdoors.

There is a bit of confusion about French windows

A lot of people may misunderstand the French window design but we are here to keep things simple. These windows look extremely similar to all of your other casement windows; and unless you were looking for signs you would not see any differences. The differences come into light when you open this window. Your first sash opens as normal and the second sash has the central mullion attached or floating as it can be called to achieve your completely free of frame opening.

Where to have French windows installed in your home?

French windows are often installed in dormer windows on the upper floor of a property. However, they can also be used for first-floor windows whereby the opening is not sufficient enough for fire escape regulations to be met.
