World Renowned window design company Fakro has envisioned an extremely useful innovative skylight that can transform a window into a simple beautiful balcony allowing natural light and ventilation far more efficiently while offering an unforgettable experience and expansive views. When the flip of the window sashes, the panes open into a guard rail, making a small open-air terrace. In this manner Fakro`s design can change the spatiality of a room dramatically without expensive renovations.
The innovative window has been designed for skylight windows on a pitched roof, this design system works by installing two upward- and downward-opening windows instead of just the simple skylight that we usually see. The bottom window sash opens forward, creating a sturdy vertical wall for the balcony. The built-in rail slides forward, generating a gated guard for both sides of the balcony. The top window then open at a 45-degree angle upward, creating more then enough head room for an individual to step out onto the newly formed balcony space. One set of windows creates a highly breezy and airy outlook for one, but accompanied but 2-3 more the space really shape-shifts into a romantic and immersive scenery in which the exterior has a big role.It become a place to unwind, relax and calm down after work, breathing in the fresh air of the outdoors whilst enjoying the surroundings.
Every balcony window panes is glazed to block solar gain and ensure the proper insulation inside. When closed, the balcony rails recess into the sides and the gaining the look of any ordinary skylight. Fakro’s balcony windows can be set up to infuse a room with ample natural lighting and ventilation.
