Fall-proof floor to ceiling windows on the upper floor
Especially in the attic or upper floor, a floor to ceiling window is reasonably necessary for a bright room atmosphere. But the quick access to nature, which is desired on the ground floor, requires additional building law measures and safety precautions on the upper floor, which must be particularly noted.
The critical point is about the falling protection of floor to ceiling windows, which is an essential requirement, and there are different ways to achieve this. For example, the lower part of the pane can be designed as a fixed element up to the legally prescribed height of the fall protection. In addition, further security measures should be defined, including a French balcony, a railing, or an inconspicuous glass barrier.
Safety precautions for floor to ceiling window fall protection may vary from different local regulations. Window panes with laminated safety glass are recommended. This can not only reduce the risk of injury, but if the glass breaks, a firmly connected surface will be created to protect people.
Segmentation of the window area
If you want the windows to open without an annoying outside railing, you can have the window areas segmented. The floor to ceiling window is divided into two window areas. The lower part is fixed with safety glass, which cannot be opened. The upper window can be installed with the usual functions of tilting and turning.
Window opening mechanism of floor to ceiling window
The opening mechanism also plays an important role. For example, the windows can be installed as fixed glazing. However, opening the window for airing the room as a living space is usually unavoidable. Therefore, the usual window opening with a tilt and turn function cannot be integrated into the model.
Railings on the outside of the window
The most popular type of fall protection is to mount a railing on the outside of the facade, which is particularly common among French balconies. This model is often equipped with a small exit area, and the railing can be mounted in the form of metal or glass.
