Generally, a fixed window cannot be opened. The function is limited to allowing light to enter as well allowing vision to the outside or between areas within a building perimeter. Panorama (or picture) windows are normally fixed, allowing an unobstructed view to the outside at wide angles. This type of window is used in situations where light or vision alone is needed as no ventilation is possible through fixed windows without the use of ventilators. Transom windows and bay windows are also fixed in many applications.
Below are some examples of different window configurations and sliding doors that we may be able convert:
Double-glaze systems and Triple-glaze systems available, as well as Frosted Privacy Panels. See our Gallery for examples of our work here LINK
This type of vertical sliding window consists of one sash is movable (usually the bottom one) and the other fixed. This is the earlier form of sliding sash window, as it is traditionally cheaper than double hung windows.
This sash window is the traditional style of window in the United Kingdom, and many other places that were formerly colonized by the UK. With two parts (sashes) that overlap slightly and slide up and down inside the frame. The two parts are not necessarily the same size. Currently most new double-hung sash windows use spring balances to support the sashes, but traditionally, counterweights held in boxes on either side of the window were used. These were and are attached to the sashes using pulleys of either braided cord or, later, purpose-made chain.
The sliding window has two or more sashes (sometimes one only) that overlap slightly, sliding horizontally within the frame.
A window above a door; in an exterior door the transom window is often fixed, in an interior door it can open either by hinges at top or bottom, or rotate on hinges. It provided ventilation for forced air heating and cooling. A fan-shaped transom is known as a fanlight.
Also known as a louvered window, the jalousie window consists of parallel slats of glass or acrylic that open and close like a Venetian blind, usually using a crank or a lever. They are used extensively in tropical architecture. A jalousie door is a door with a jalousie window.
A flat or slope window used for daylight (or moonlight) penetration, built into a roof structure that is usually out of reach. Larger skylights are often multi-panelled, in order to allow for sufficient structural strength to carry their own weight, wind pressure or snow and rain.
A sloped window used for daylight penetration, ventilation and view to the outside (or sky). Roof windows are built into the roof structure windows and can be fixed or operable.
A multi-panel window, with at least three panels set at different angles to create a protrusion from the wall line.
French window (French door) is a large door-sized lattice light, typically set in pairs or multiples thereof. Traditionally, they were often used overlook a terrace or garden area.

Do not clean the acrylic panels with any ammonia products, such as Windex or any other similar glass-cleaning products. The ammonia, in some cases, may cause the panel to become cloudy in appearance.
Do not use abrasive cloths, scours, sponges, etc. to clean the panels
Do not use razor scrapers or any other tool to clean the panels as they will scratch the panels
Do not return the secondary-glaze panel to its installed position WHILE your existing window is OPEN. A strong gust of wind could break the magnetic seals and dislodge the panel
Panels should only be cleaned using quality acrylic spray-can cleaners (we recommend VuPlex- available from large Hardware stores such as Bunnings) or good old fashioned warm soapy water does just as good a job. Use micro-fibre cloths or soft sponges that won’t scratch the panels (just like you’d do when washing your car)
