Types of Windows

Sliding windows are good for high traffic areas because they do not project in or out.Sliding windows provide maximum ventilation and easy cleaning. Screens are mounted on the exterior.
Bay windows are a combination of three outward projecting windows that provide multiple views and a feeling of spaciousness. These versatile windows increase light flow and also add counter space.
The side units of a bay window project out from the building in 30, 45, or 90 degree angles.
The center is parallel with the building wall and is made up of one or more windows.
All the bay window units can be stationary, operating, or any combination.
Bow windows are a series of four or more adjoining window units, commonly five in number, installed on a radius from the wall of the building. All units can be stationary, operating or any combination.
