Modern architecture and changing technology in the construction industry allow to erect houses with flat roofs. Each room in the building should offer a source of natural light to make the user feel comfortable. FAKRO's DXW flat roof windows are an ideal solution in such cases.
These windows ensure you can walk across its surface freely.
The frames of the flat roof windows are made of multi-chamber PVC profiles partially manufactured from recycled raw material. The inner surface of the frame is white. Material from which the profiles are made features high resistance to acids and very low moisture absorption, therefore the window can be used in any room.
Profiles are filled inside with insulating material which additionally improves thermal parameters of the product. Additional profiles clamping covering materials under eaves of the frame facilitate finish of the flat roof window connection with the roof covering. Safe, double chamber glazing unit with heat transfer coefficient Ug = 0.5 W/m²K is used in windows.
With its specially enhanced strengthened design and non-slip coating, the window ensures you can walk across its entire surface safely. This is of great importance in case of usable terraces and roofs where the window in flush with openwork platform allows for free and safe walk across its surface and does not spoil aesthetics. This feature significantly improves usability of the roof and terrace.
Optimized design of flat roof windows allows for installation of internal accessories for the type F windows. Available as standard, the DXW window includes profiles clamping the roofing felt or other covering material under eaves of the frame, which facilitate finish of the flat roof window connection with the roof covering.
DXW was a German Design Award Winner in 2019 within the 'special mention' category and an award winner of ICONIC AWARDS 2018: Innovative Architecture - Best of Best. The award-winning DXW flat roof window features not only innovative design but also functionality seen in the enhanced load capacity and non-slip coating which ensure that the windows can be walked over.
