Roof window that becomes a balcony

Fakro’s balcony window is a contemporary alternative to a dormer

In association with

The Fakro FGH-V Galeria balcony window provides a contemporary alternative to a dormer at a fraction of the cost. It has two sections, an innovative hinge mechanism enabling the upper sash to be positioned, without support, at any point up to 45°. The lower sash then tilts forward to reveal built-in balustrades which enable the user to step out safely into the roofline. When closed, these are neatly hidden beneath outer cladding which is flat in profile and has no areas where leaves or debris can accumulate.

Both sashes are equipped with P2 laminated safety glazing, the patented Fakro topSafe system of hinge and lock reinforcement, a multi-point locking system to secure the sash on either side of the frame and a semi-automatic vent.

The window operating handle is at the bottom of the upper sash and has a two-point locking mechanism which enables the window to be rotated through 180° for cleaning of the outer pane. The FGH-V is relatively light in weight and therefore poses no structural problems and, with the exception of conservation areas, planning permission will not normally be required. Installation can be on pitches from 35 to 55°.
