Greater exposure to natural light with a noticeable reduction in the use and dependence on artificial lighting is the central theme behind the installation of pitched roof windows. A lot of thought and planning is required ahead of these installations to consider: the required amount of light, directions receiving maximum light, and the type of glazing applied to the window. Capable of altering the ambience of a room— pitched roof windows are invariably introduced into the loft area once it’s absorbed into the habitable portions of the house.
Centre pivot and Top hung roof available at Buildworld are the most popular models in the pitched roof windows circuit. The Centre pivot is composed of a single glass pane and opens from the vertical centre. Unlike centre pivot, top hung pitched roof models open from the top part of the window. Top-third roof windows enjoy the traits of both centre pivot and top hung roof designs with lesser window sash around the frame. The large-sized models available at our online store in Side-hung windows have the advantage of being instrumental during emergency escapes, largely due to the side-hung design that opens on the right and the left side of the window frame.
Glazing: Noise reduction glazing is optimized when applied to pitched roof windows and are ideal for reducing external noises in noisy neighbourhoods. The non-transparent glazing displayed below helps secure privacy in sensitive zones such as bathrooms and kitchens to prevent sightings from the outside while allowing the person indoors a clear view of outdoor surroundings. A higher degree of insulation encompassing noise reduction and sufficient to trap heat indoors is achieved through triple and quadruple glazing.
