How to choose panoramic windows well?

Modern homes are distinguished by their large glass panoramic windows. They make it more appealing and let you use the garden all year round.

Panoramic windows: openable or fixed?

Day zone glass need not be openable. In the case of very large windows, removing this function decreases cost and increases insulation. Non-opening panoramic windows might have thinner frames because they have fewer loads and no fittings. In rooms on the ground floor, where they are easy to clean from the outside, this is a good choice. The non-opening panoramic window isn’t separated, therefore it creates an invisible partition. The condition is translucent glazing.

Combining openable and non-openable window fragments is beneficial (fixtures). When choosing a connection, keep in mind that the frames will be different lengths and the glazing components will be in separate planes. You can avoid this visual effect by ordering non-opening pieces resembling fragments with openable sashes. They feature a smaller glazing unit and broader frames, but no fittings.

Different frame widths can produce a pattern on the facade. Wide panoramic windows can have different-colored openable sashes.

Non-opening panoramic window on the first floor

The panoramic windows on the upper floors can be fixed. It is going to be challenging to wash from the outside in. If you choose with a glazing unit that has a coating that cleans itself, you’ll only have to clean it once a year. Window dirt is removed by UV light, and then the remaining residue is washed away by rain (you can also pour water from a garden hose on the glass). Water quickly evaporates and does not leave any marks on glass. The hydrophilic coating has the potential to provide a blue or brown hue to the self-cleaning panes.

A 7 cm patio door threshold might be an inconvenient barrier to the terrace. Lift-slide doors can be threshold-free. Only a gasket is visible on the floor; the threshold is hidden.
