FAKRO Roof Windows
FAKRO roof windows are designed to provide a focal point for any room whether you use them individually or in combinations. Their stylish appearance is matched by the highest standard of manufacturing and finishing which means you can rest assured they will go on looking good for years to come. FAKRO windows offer a perfect combination of style, sustainability, security and long design life.
Bigger glazing area and more light
The design of FAKRO roof windows enables more light to be brought to any room. By placing the air inlet at the top of the frame, FAKRO roof windows provide a glazing area up to 10% bigger than competitor’s products of the same size, in which the ventilation flap has been fitted in the sash. The operating handle in the base of the sash is always more convenient for the user.
The pine used in manufacture offers the clearest visual evidence of FAKRO roof window quality. Not only does its close grain look stylish, it is obtained from FSC certified sources. A double vacuum process using water-borne preservatives provides lasting dimensional stability and all windows are finished with three coats of environmentally friendly lacquer.
Windows for Bathrooms, Wetrooms and Kitchens
FAKRO offers two types of roof window for rooms in which high levels of humidity are created. You have the choice of either white polyurethane-coated pine or white PVC. FAKRO PVC veneers also achieve the highest level of measurable performance - Class A - EN12608.
Automatic air ventilation in all windows
Many manufacturers use a standard manually operated vent which is inefficient, causing unnecessary heat loss. The FAKRO V40P automatic vent which is installed in all FAKRO pine roof windows is activated by changes in atmospheric pressure. It provides the optimum balance of fresh air regardless of weather conditions.
A TopSafe® system provides peace of mind that FAKRO roof windows offer exceptional burglary resistance. In contrast to products which break simply by applying foot pressure, TopSafe® provides additional hinge and lock reinforcement to prevent the sash from being forced. An EU Standard (EN13049) now means you can compare roof window security and all FAKRO products achieve a minimum of Class 3.
Energy Saving Performance
What really sets FAKRO windows apart is their low level of heat loss. Unlike some manufacturers who provide U-values just for glazing units, FAKRO provides information for the whole window. When comparing the performance of FAKRO windows with other products you will see how the non-vented, quadruple-glazed FTT U8 Thermo, with a U-value of 0.58 W/m2K, leads the market. The standard FTP-V centre pivot windows also offer a level of performance which competing windows invariably fail to match.
Warm Glazing Spacers
Many roof windows use metallic spacers to separate panes and these can encourage condensation to form by forming a cold ‘bridge’ between them. By contrast, FAKRO uses only warm spacers in order to eliminate this otherwise common problem.
Ease of Installation
FAKRO easy to use “bracket fix” installation system enables windows to be fitted either to rafters or battens. Windows can also be fitted onto sarking.
Whether buying natural pine, PU-coated pine or PVC FAKRO offers a 10-year guarantee for all windows and a 20 year guarantee on glazing units. FAKRO also offer a no quibble lifetime warranty against damage by hail stones.
