Awning Window 

Awning windows offer a stylish and space efficient solution to your window requirements. Hinged from the top, and opened with a winder, awning windows provide excellent ventilation, as air can circulate through both sides of the window sash. In addition, they provide a large glazed area, perfect for allowing uninterrupted views of your surrounds. Our awning windows are available in both Canterbury timber and Southern Star aluminium.

 

 







Sliding Window

Sliding windows offer an exceptional amount of versatility in regard to size and configuration, with the sash being able to slide left or right to open depending on your requirements. In addition to this versatility, sliding windows offer excellent space efficiency, as well as superior ventilation. Sliding windows are equally at home in both traditional and modern builds. Both Canterbury timber and Southern Star aluminium sliding windows are available to perfectly suit your building project.

 

 


Bifold Window

Bifold windows offer the perfect way to provide stylish and functional transition between indoor and outdoor spaces within the home. They are fantastic for use as servery windows, allowing you to take advantage of the optional extended sill. The bifold design allows you to open the windows to the full width of the opening, using a concertina motion. Our bifold windows are available in both Southern Star aluminium and Canterbury timber.
