Handy Guide to Window Types


Following the popularity of our handy guide to doors, we now present the handy guide to window types. Our windows are available in Southern Star Aluminium and Canterbury Timber. Whether you’re renovating or building brand new, we have the perfect window solution for you.

Sliding Windows

Sliding windows are a contemporary classic that are identified by the sliding feature of their sash, which can manoeuvre along rails and create an opening. Superior ventilation, abundance of light and expansive views are assured with the large glazed panels. Sliding windows are a versatile option suited to practically any application.


Awning Windows

Awning windows are aesthetically pleasing and offer a solid, sturdy frame that will enhance any home design. Awning windows offer enhanced energy efficiency with an integrated continuous hook hinge for extra sealing. Their design allows them to open in a diagonal fashion from the hinge. A chain winder system allows easy operation of the sash in all weather conditions.


Casement Windows

Casement windows offer a bold design that suits both traditional and modern homes. The open out sash provides outstanding ventilation while the design is effective in any weather. Casement windows are enclosed by a sturdy frame, which allows them to be hinged from either vertical edge. They are a great choice when considering facade design and also fit anywhere else in the home.


Bifold Windows

Bifold windows draw inspiration from bifold doors. Their folding design allows for a space efficient way to provide instant access from indoors to outdoor. They are perfect for entertaining and can even be provided with an extended sill that can be used as a servery. Versatility and functionality make bifold windows an ideal choice for numerous applications.


Double Hung Windows

Double hung windows are a unique design that combines classic styling with contemporary operation. State of the art mechanisms allow double hung windows to open and close with ease, without compromising design. Sashes can even be removed very simply for the ability to clean. The timber double hung window is offered as three different versions: SashlessCounterbalance and Jambliner.

Louvre Windows

Louvre windows provide a stylish look combined with ventilation and climate control at the flick of a wrist. Louvre windows allow you to control noise, airflow and when fitted with optional obscure glass or timber blades, you can control your privacy too. The blades work in conjunction with air conditioning and evaporative cooling units to provide maximum cooling.

All of our windows come in various materials, colours, panel configurations and lock options. The Southern Star Group can create the perfect window for you and your needs. Check out our website or speak to a sales representative to find out more.
