For roof windows placed within reach, try to allow for a clear view when standing and when seated. Note that the optimum window height depends on the roof pitch.

Top operated windows

Top operated roof windows make it possible to place furniture directly below the window without obstructing operation of the window.

Bottom operated windows

Bottom operated roof windows make it possible to stand upright under the open window while looking out to the sides, providing extra headroom and maximising the feeling of extra space. These windows are also suitable for emergency escape/access purposes.

Out of reach windows

If the roof window is placed out of reach, consider electrical operation, which makes it possible to operate the window as well as interior and exterior sun-screening products from a control pad or digital app.
