The idea of an outward opening window is developed in Scandinavian countries in harsh climate conditions: in Denmark and in Norway such windows have been the main solution in building practice.
The construction of an outward opening window is designed to have excellent performance and functionality during different season through the year: in high humidity, in dry conditions, while it is cold or hot. Gaskets and insulated glazing units used in the design ensure air tightness and energy efficiency. Carefully chosen wood and the use of tested hardware prolong window's life span.
In Viking Window's product lines outward opening double glazed window is named Viking-12 Window. It is best described as a traditional window with double glazing, slim frames and internal moulded profile (see the illustrations below).

Fixed lights and windows with mullions and transoms:
Fixed light is a simple solution which includes a galzing unit installed directly to the window frame. This is a way to increase light gain inside. A more complex variation could be a window with a fixed casement. This could be a case of historic buildings where it is required to maintain outside face.
Viking Window's product line also include wide variety of dividing possibilities for frames and casements: mullions, transoms, glazing bars and applied bars on glazing units. Single multilight window frame can be as big as 2,5 x 3,2 m.
