    • Centre Pivot (Standard): A top control bar makes it easy to open even with furniture under the window. Windows can be rotated 180 degrees for cleaning. They are available in manual, electric or solar operation. Centre Pivot is suitable for roof pitches between 15 degrees and 90 degrees.

    • White Polyurethane: Perfect for contemporary interiors and ideal for humid rooms such as kitchens or bathrooms.
