WINDOWS

While we can’t change your outdoor environment, we can help you get the most out of the view at your home – a carefully chosen window can be all it takes to bring your home to life. All of our window options are designed with light and space in mind. By understanding the different types available and how they work, you can better match windows to your needs, and your lifestyle. For the best result, please consult with one of our experienced sales team who will explain all the possibilities in depth with you. Also we are more than happy to discuss your ideas before final plans are completed so you fully benefit from our knowledge.

When space is at a premium, or it’s not possible to have a protruding window beyond the building, sliding windows may be the best option. Available as either vertical (double hung) or horizontal, sliding windows create a feeling of space and light. And because they often provide more access to open air than other conventional windows, they also provide increased ventilation. They’re perfect for entertaining, watching the outside world from the comfort of your home, and bringing in air and light.

Flexible, unobtrusive, and robust, bi-fold windows seamlessly connect the areas in your home, creating a sense of space, light and openness. Whether it’s between two separate rooms, or your indoor and outdoor spaces, a well-placed bi-fold window maximises your available view and increases airflow. In fact, when fully opened, you won’t even notice the window is there at all. It’s a simple way to bring a café-like feel to your living areas.

Awning and casement windows can add an elegant, traditional look to your home or apartment. It’s simple to tell the difference – awnings are hung from the top, while casements open from a vertical edge. Both options are practical, easy to use and provide excellent ventilation. Awnings can also be left partly open when it’s raining – so they’re great in winter too.

These windows all project from external walls, adding space to rooms and capturing sunlight. Box windows are often light maximising corner windows. With Bay windows, the whole unit projects from the exterior wall while Greenhouse windows have glass roofs and 90 degree corners. All these windows come in a near endless number of variables and options so talk to us to find out more. Custom designed windows are another great alternative opening the way for great results including large spans of glass, interesting curves and wide openings.

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of coming home to a warm dry home on a bitterly cold winter’s day.
Fairview Thermal – custom built for New Zealand’s harshest winds, iciest mornings and chilliest nights.

The secret is in the clever design feature – called ‘thermal break technology’ that ensures the aluminium is more robust to changes in temperature. By separating the window or door frame into exterior and interior compartments and inserting a less conductive reinforced black polymide insulating strip in the centre of the profile, an effective thermal insulation break is created.

This break stops the heat being lost in the winter and heat coming in during the summer. Thermally broken frames combined with double glazing, provides a far more energy efficient, moisture free, comfortable internal environment while maintaining a strong aluminium structure.
