At Pro Aluminium and Glass, we offer the following types of aluminum window solutions. Please click on the links below to be taken to the relevant pages.
Projected aluminium windows are also sometimes called casement windows or sash windows. They are differentiated from fixed windows or sliding windows by the fact that they have ‘leafs’ or ’sashes’ that swing out from the window’s outer frame. Casement windows can take one of two forms – top-hung or side-hung. (Click here for more details, pictures and specs).
Sliding windows are the natural option if you are looking for a sleek finish or if your space does not allow for sashes projecting outwards. They are equally suited to homes and office buildings, bringing an aesthetic yet highly functional feature to the structure. Sliding windows can take one of two forms – horizontal sliding windows (where the sashes slide left and right), and vertical sliding windows (sashes slide up or down). If you are looking to enclose a large opening, create a sunroom, customise a shopfront, sliding window units can fit seamlessly with fixed-pane windows, sliding doors or folding doors.

Pivot windows are unique in the way in which they open – they pivot around a predetermined point in the window’s frame, thus usually allowing a wider opening than with projected or sliding windows. The design also allows for larger than standard window sizes on the whole. Our pivot windows make use of a specially designed system equally suited to office buildings and luxury domestic spaces.

In certain cases commercial or domestic building projects may call for arched windows or round windows. They immediately lend a unique aesthetic feature to any home or commercial building, and sets it apart from the rest! The span of a single arched window can be extremely wide, with the curve being as gentle or as acute as desired. These are non-opening windows, each one custom built to your exact requirements (click here for more details, pictures and specs)
