About French windows

The French window is a floor-to-ceiling window with an external railing. This model, which can often be found in the old town of French cities, is especially impressive for its unique charm. Since there was little space in the inner cities of France, or it was often not allowed to build a balcony due to building regulations, the French balcony was invented to provide plenty of daylight and space. The French balcony protrudes only minimally from the facade compared to conventional balconies. With the French window, you can visually create more light and space in the room, increasing the quality of living.

A characteristic of the French window is its exterior railing. The beautiful decorations and flowers on the railing characterize the charm of French inner cities. But more and more modern versions of the external railing can be found in the cities. Smooth facades with simple steel fall protection without ornaments are becoming more and more popular.

Fall protection in the form of glass can also be found more and more often. This is usually permanently glazed on the outer facade and consists of safety glass. The so-called VSG glass contains an elastic and tough film, which prevents the glass from breaking through.

The French balcony window is equal to the floor-to-ceiling window. The floor-to-ceiling window is preferably purchased as a tilt and turn windowSo you can easily tilt the window and open it like a normal window.

the cost of floor-to-ceiling window

The cost of a floor-to-ceiling window with a French balcony consists of many components. First, you need to choose a floor-to-ceiling window with an opening type. Next, you need to decide whether you want a steel or glass exterior railing. If you don’t want an exterior railing for your facade, there is an option to segment your floor-to-ceiling glazing into skylights and sidelights. While the sidelight is fixed glazed and used for fall protection, you can open the skylight without disturbance.

French window with matching protection

The large glass surface of the French window allows small animals to enter when the window is opened, especially in midsummer, and many users are disturbed by these insects. A simple solution is integrating a fly screen for your French window. The fly screen can be easily integrated into your window frame so that you can ventilate even on warm summer nights without being disturbed by pests. You can incorporate your insect screen tenter frame as a rotating sash or sliding construction.

Also, consider that your floor-to-ceiling window can be customized to meet other needs besides insect protection. If you have children in the house, child-proofing the window handles would make sense. Soundproof glazing is a good idea if you live on a noisy street. A useful extension for the floor-to-ceiling window is roller shutters or ornamental glazing. The large French window allows many unwanted views of privacy, so a suitable privacy screen is essential.
