When we think about having double glazing fitted, we tend to think about warmth and cutting out draughts, hence many of the window designs we decide on reflect this.
But what about the Summer when you want to have a window open?
It’s worth bearing in mind that windows with large opening panels mean you’ll very often not open them for security reasons. Specifying windows with a small opening pane (like more traditional wooden windows) means you’re much more likely to feel more secure when leaving one of the smaller panes open.
Whether that’s while you’re sleeping at night or airing the house whilst sitting in the back garden, you’ll be glad you specified a small opening pane when the Summer arrives.
Most designs feature a lockable handle option whereby you can ‘lock’ the window on a setting that leaves it slightly ajar.
