Tips on how to select a roof window

Published:  14 April, 2015

With the gap between manufacturers increasing in terms of product quality, FAKRO’S new brochure ‘10 tips on how to select a roof window’ helps builders and roofers choose which designs are likely to suit interior styles and budgets.

Over 80% of the market is still accounted for by the standard centre pivot window, yet the choice of window design, size, glazing and accessories continues to grow. There is also considerable variation in thermal performance.

FAKRO offers a quadruple-glazed window, which has achieved Passivhaus certification. The company also routinely manufactures bespoke products to meet specific project requirements, both in terms of style and aspects of technical performance.
