Homeowner information about Origin Aluminium Windows.

Origin windows are suitable both for the replacement of existing windows. They also work well in new extensions and new-build houses.  Origin aluminium windows are primarily marketed at the homeowner. However many commercial buildings have Origin windows.

The definition of a commercial contract is anything that is not residential, for example, offices, warehouses or factories.  Commercial jobs can also involve large or small-scale developments of flats, apartments and houses., such construction companies building new homes.

Any structural opening that needs a window fitted in it can suit an Origin aluminium window.and not just a dwelling.  Origin windows also come in different window types and styles.

Origin casement windows.

A casement window is one that has an opening light that opens out.  Casement window opening lights come top hung, where the opening light hinges fix on the sides, with window handles at the bottom.  The top hung window opens outwards from the top.

Side hung casement windows have the hinges fitted on the top and bottom.  The window handles sit on the left or right side.  The window opens outwards to the side.

Origin windows with dummy sashes.

Typically an opening window with an opening element also consists of fixed panes as well.  Where the opener is adjacent to a fixed pane a sight line discrepancy occurs between the opener and the fixed panel.  This is because the opening section has additional material making the opening part appear thicker than the fixed part of the window.

When this aesthetic discrepancy occurs the fixed and opening part of the window do not sit level.  Therefore, this is where dummy sashes help. Dummy sashes or dummy vents are essentially the same profile as the opening element of the window. This opening element is fixed into the frame. Essentially looking like an opening window but fixed. Of course, you can choose to have all window panels opening if you wish. With a dummy sash, you get a consistent neat sight line.  The window fixed and opening elements look exactly the same with equal proportions and equal glass sizes. Usually, a window with dummy sashes looks much better than one without.

Origin aluminium windows are available with both standard and dummy vent arrangements helping achieve equal sight lines.  Many post and pre-war houses and those with original timber windows feature a dummy sash design.  Therefore Origin aluminium windows help to replicate the original sight lines of older windows.  They suit modern houses and window styles that require a consistent look in the home.  Therefore, when you do your research to get information about Origin aluminium windows, consider whether dummy sashes are better than conventional fixed panels.

Furthermore, for suburban semi-detached or detached house with decorative fanlights in the Fleur-de-Lys or similar style, dummy sashes help these panes of glass look centralised and correctly positioned.
