One of the new Fakro roof windows launched for 2015 .
The innovative balanced hinge mechanism enables the sash to be positioned as required so that users can stand with an unobstructed in an open window.
The sash height is significantly greater than a standard roof window to maximise use of natural daylight and views from the room.
The axis of rotation is situated above the centre of the window so even a tall person can easily walk up to the window edge.
The lower part of the sash fulfils a top hung window function and the upper part of the sash is an additional source of daylight.
The sash when opened in position from 0 to 45 degrees is supported by innovative supporting mechanism enabling the sash to be open in any position within this range.
