Window Design

Not only do timber windows come in all shapes and sizes, they are also manufactured using a number of different designs. By matching architectural features and different opening systems to the local conditions, timber windows will enhance a building’s overall performance.

These are a number of different timber window designs typically manufactured by WADIC members and specified by building industry professionals.

Each design has a number of features to suit a range of locations, purposes and offering a range of performance characteristics.

The following information provides a basic guide to common timber window types and how they operate.

Casement Windows – These windows have hinges at the side and either crank or push out to open. Awning Windows – These windows have hinges at the top and open outward. Double Hung Windows – Open by sliding one sash vertically past another.
Sliding Windows – Open by sliding one sash horizontally past the other. Picture and Transom Windows – These are stationary windows designed to match double-hung or casement windows. Specialty Windows – Are stationary windows with curved shapes or angles other than 90°.
Bay Windows – Are window combinations that project outward from a home.
