About arched windows

Arched windows enjoyed great popularity even in the classical period. They were used in religious buildings, royal palaces, and simple horse stables. At that time, the arched window shape was necessary when large openings were to be made in traditional masonry to support the load of the overlying wall. Today, arched windows primarily meet aesthetic needs for curved, natural shapes and still give the impression of being luxurious and unique.

Arched windows – aesthetics, and function combined

Arched windows typically consist of a rectangular lower part and a semicircular or elliptical upper part.

Due to their rounded upper edge, a large amount of light can penetrate the interior of the building. There is an amiable and homely atmosphere in the rooms lit up in this way. Arched windows as lattice windows especially exude a unique charm due to the fascinating play of light created by the incoming sun rays.

Equipment with curtains or other decorative elements is also possible. Depending on your requirements, the arched windows made of plastic, wood, or aluminum can be equipped with a tilt or turn-tilt fitting. These extravagant arched windows can be used in residential buildings and representative buildings, such as hospitals, universities, or public administration buildings.

Special features of arched windows

Arched windows made of wood are among the most popular versions of this design element, but they can also be made of plastic or aluminum. There is also a wide range of unique design and supplement options for arched windows.

Due to the more complex manufacturing process of round arches, the price of this window type is higher than standard rectangular window shapes. Their installation is also more difficult, so it is essential to consult a qualified window installer.

The roller shutter as an alternative to arched window curtains

Brightly lit rooms create a pleasant ambiance that makes you feel good. But during the summer months, you often want sun protection for arched windows to keep the living room cool or sleep in.

Although curtains for arched windows are a quick and straightforward solution, they are not completely light-proof, and the heat is hardly kept out. Therefore, roller shutters are more suitable for darkening arched windows and optimal thermal insulation.

The additional air layer increases energy efficiency as well as sound insulation. At the same time, the stable aluminum armor protects against uninvited guests. Another advantage of the arched window roller blinds is that a practical fly screen as insect protection can be integrated into the box so that little pests are denied access to your home.
