Fakro Conservation roof windows – combining traditional and contemporary styling
There can be no doubt that conservation style roof windows can greatly enhance new builds and loft conversions of traditional style. A prestigious new development by renowned oak furniture manufacturers Alan and Lynn Cryer at Bishop Thornton near Harrogate is a perfect example.
FAKRO FPP preSelect® roof windows were used throughout the development to complement the natural stone walls, blue slate roof and prominent four-face clock tower. The flashing used enabled the windows to be installed 30mm lower in the roof than normal, thus enabling the smooth roofline of the slates to remain uninterrupted. In terms of its design, the FPP is anything but traditional, however. Its unique, patented hinge mechanism enables it to be changed from traditional centre pivot to top hung operation at the flick of a switch in the frame. As with all standard FAKRO roof windows, the FPP’s operating handle is in the base of the frame, allowing a far larger glazing area to be provided. It utilises topSafe® technology to provide the highest standard of security currently available (Class 3 or higher EN13049) while an automatic air vent provides a perfectly balanced air flow.
FAKRO offers the widest range of styles and sizes of Conservation style roof window currently available, in standard sizes from 550mm x 780mm upwards. Bespoke manufacture is also routinely undertaken.
