Our Best-Selling Centre Pivot Roof Windows

Centre pivot roof windows are a type of roof window (in case you hadn't guessed!) designed to sit at a 15-90° angle on your ceiling or wall. This type of roof window is the most cost-effective solution to add more daylight and ventilation into your home compared to other leading models. It is also easier to install and a lot easier to clean due to the pivot being able to rotate 180°; you can clean from the comfort of your home - no dodgy window cleaners required! 

Centre pivot Roof Windows are available in either electricmanual or solar powered operation, and can be operated from either the top or bottom of the sash, meaning half the window opens into your home and the other half heads outside. Your best bet is to install the centre pivot roof window about head height to ensure you get the most out of your window and the views it provides - also so you don't bash your head when you're opening it!
