Description and benefits

Top guided windows
Also known as awning windows, Top guided windows are hinged at the top, perfect for wet climates as they block out rain.


One of the key benefits of top guided windows is their ease of operation. The sash is guided smoothly along the track, making it easy to open and close the window with minimal effort. This is especially useful for windows that are located high up or in hard-to-reach places, as the top guided design makes them easy to operate. Top guided windows also provide excellent ventilation control. The design allows for the sash to be opened at varying degrees, allowing for precise control over the amount of air that enters the room. This is particularly useful in hot or rainy climates, where ventilation is crucial for maintaining a comfortable indoor climate.


Finally, top guided windows are aesthetically pleasing and can add value to your property. The clean, sleek design of top guided windows is visually appealing and can complement a variety of architectural styles. Additionally, their energy-efficient features can help reduce heating and cooling costs, making them an attractive investment for homeowners.

Examples of top guided windows

Top guided windows are incredibly useful especially installed in places that are harder to reach. Think for example at windows installed above sinks or cabinet – in a top guided window, the handle is placed on the lower frame, making them easier to open and close.
