What Makes A FAKRO Roof Window Better?

Published on Tuesday, 31st January 2017

10 excellent reasons why you need a FAKRO roof window to add the perfect finish to your project.

1. Maximum Natural Light

FAKRO roof windows are designed to let in the most amount of daylight possible. The profile shape of the frame and the sash, as well as the placement of the air inlet in the upper part of the frame, create more glazing area to illuminate your room.

2. Highest Timber Quality

The knot-free pine wood used in FAKRO windows is taken from FSC certified sources.

The double vacuum process, using waterborne preservatives and two coats of environmentally friendly lacquer, guarantees the durability and great look of the frame.

3. Roof Windows for Bathrooms & Kitchen Extensions

Rooms with high humidity need a roof window resistant to steam. FAKRO offers the choice of white PVC, which will complement existing uPVC windows, and top quality polyurethane.

Polyurethane (PU) frames offer the best in style and performance. High quality pine frames are covered in a seamless PU finish that ensures a humidity resistant, low maintenance and stylish finish.
