Technical Information For Fauser Security Windows and Doors - Configuration

  • The samples below indicate only the most used configurations.
  • Other configurations and combinations are possible.
  • All opening windows can be ordered with tilt & turn, tilt only or turn only operation.
  • The maximum window sizes are based on regular glazing. Higher security levels decrease size.
  • Security glazing, because of the increasing weight, has to be calculated individually.
  • The turn operation can be designed with left or right opening direction.
  • Transoms can be at the bottom or at the top of the window.
  • Each window or door can be designed with mullions and muntins to your specification.
  • For architectural design elements, please refer to the “Architectural Restoration” page

Architectural Symbols

A window has two parts
    Frame
    Sash

A dotted "V" indicates operation of the sash.

The open end of the "V" shows the side of the sash which opens, while the closed end of the "V" indicates the side of the sash which stays connected to the frame usually by a hinge mechanism.

And you are right if you just asked "Doesn't that mean a Tilt & Turn window has two hinges?"

Please contact us for window & door configurations not displayed here. Since all our products are custom made, we most likely will be able to come close to your desired window and door design.

Bow/Bay and Corner Windows can be designed at a 90º, 45º or 22.5º angle.

The symbols showing the opening direction are opposite in European elevation drawings.

Muntins

Muntins can enhance the visual appeal and tie the window into the architectural style of the building.
We recommend the “in-between the glazing” muntins; Easy to clean and protected from dirt build-up.
