We have put together this guide to help you understand where you can use Origin Aluminium Windows what types of property that can be suitable for.
Origin windows are suitable both for the replacement of existing windows as well as new windows for extensions and new-build houses. While Origin aluminium windows are primarily marketed at the homeowner, they are suitable for commercial buildings as well.
The definition of a commercial contract is anything that is not residential, such as an office, warehouse or factory building. Commercial jobs can also involve large or small-scale developments of flats, apartments and houses, such as those carried out by construction companies and those specialising in the building of 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 can be top hung, where the opening light is hinged on the left and right side, with the 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 and the window handles 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 can occur 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. This is where dummy sashes are useful. Dummy sashes or dummy vents as they are also called, are essentially the same profile as the opening element of the window but fixed into the frame. When dummy sashes are used, a consistent sight line is created. The window fixed and opening elements look exactly the same with an equal sight line as if all the windows open. 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 are also well suited to modern houses and window styles that require a consistent window sight line.
If you live in a 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.
Origin gable windows.
One of the biggest advantages of an Origin aluminium window over other makes of windows is that bigger window sizes are possible. This includes the very popular gable style of windows and gables above bifolding doors.
A gable window is a triangular shaped window usually filling the shape a roof creates or in a new opening designed in a gable shape. Origin gable aluminium windows are possible at extensive widths and heights and can incorporate both fixed and opening elements as well as dummy vents if required.
Origin Dormer Windows.
Origin windows are also widely used as dormer windows.
A dormer window is fitted where a roof protrudes outwards and can create great architectural features. Origin Dormer windows are widely used in attic or roof conversations where the pitch of the roof is lower and headroom restricted.
Dormer windows provide light and extra headroom. Origin aluminium windows can also be made as Dormer Gable Windows.
Origin bay and bow windows.
By using purpose-designed extrusions, Origin windows can be crafted as both bay and bow windows. There are many different types of bay and bow windows.
A bay window is usually with angled projections. Bow windows are more curved in appearance.
Origin aluminium windows in either a bay or bow design can be made as fixed or opening windows as well as with dummy sashes.
