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 addition to the traditional side hung opening type there are also projecting opening types in Viking's product line to enable easy access for both sides of a window for cleaning purposes.
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.
As an option you can choose more modern internel design without grooves on the sash profiles: Viking-14 modification.
Note: U-value (0.60 – 1.2) indicates thermal transmittance of window. Smaller value equals better thermal insulation.
