Inward vs outward opening windows

Here in Yorkshire, and the UK in general, the most common type of windows are ones that open outwardly. However, inward opening windows have been popular abroad for a long time and are becoming more and more common in the UK.

With that in mind, we thought we’d run through the advantages and disadvantages of both and determine whether most of us could learn a trick or two from people who have been opting for inward facing windows.

The basic difference between these two types of windows are simple: the most common windows, the outward facing variety are positioned on the outside of the frame, while inward facing windows are positioned on the inside.

One of the biggest considerations people need to make when choosing between inward and outward opening windows is the climate their premises is based in. If it’s a hot, humid climate, there may be a need for flynets to be on windows to prevent mosquitoes – in that case, inward facing windows are best because the flynets work best when they are installed on the outside of the frame. Of course here in Yorkshire this probably isn’t the biggest concern.

In terms of aesthetics, it’s a highly subjective question, but many people would agree that inward facing windows are more visually pleasing – even if just for the novelty of them here in Yorkshire. One definite aesthetic advantage to inward opening windows is that they can accommodate Juliet balconies, allowing for arrangements of flower boxes and other things.

Finally, logistically inward facing windows present the advantage of being able to be cleaned from the inside. Meanwhile, outward facing windows perform well in rainy conditions by not allowing as much rain to settle on their profiles.

Here at Clearview in Huddersfield, we have over ten years of experience of offering a wide variety of high quality aluminium doors at competitive prices. If you’re looking for new windows for your premises in Yorkshire, do not hesitate to give us a call on 08001357167.
