Horizontal Pivot Windows

Give your home a modern edge with our unique horizontal pivot windows. An ideal option for contemporary properties, the windows combine practical functionality with striking aesthetics that will add appeal to any home.

Due to the 180-degree pivot incorporated into the design, the windows are able to completely rotate and open inwards as well as outwards. This feature is ideal for those living in high-rise buildings or other inaccessible properties, as cleaning can be done from inside the home. This makes maintenance of the windows easier and safer than ever before.

As with all our Profile 22 systems, the horizontal pivot window comes in a variety of colours and finishes to enhance your home’s existing style and character. The large glass panels deliver optimum ventilation and light to create a bright and airy atmosphere all year round whilst retaining heat to keep you warm and cosy in winter months. As well as its physical features, the system is also high performance with guaranteed durability, quality and energy efficiency, helping you to save money on costly heating bills.

The horizontal pivot windows also incorporate advanced security features including an integrated security locking system and child resistant catches, making them an ideal solution for families looking for safer window systems without compromising on style.

Having built up a reputable service over the last 30 years, at Profile 22 we are confident that we can provide you with a window that encompasses all your needs. From style, size, colour and specification we are guaranteed to have the right window to suit your own distinctive home and tastes. We also offer friendly advice on choosing, fitting and maintaining the right windows for your home and have a network of trusted and expert fabricators and fitters on call around the UK and Ireland.

FAQs

Are you registered with BFRC?

As a window system company we do not manufacture windows and as such we cannot be registered with the BFRC. We do however employ a number of BFRC Certified Simulators. Our products are registered by our window fabricators.

Does triple glazing have a WER rating?

Profile 22’s Triple Glazed windows are capable of attaining a WER A rating, however the actual performance of the window will depend on the products used. You should discuss this with your installer and ask them to confirm the WER rating of your windows.

What is the Window Energy Rating system and how does it affect me?

Much like white goods windows are also rated for energy efficiency. Ratings of A, the highest, through to G, the lowest.. First introduced in the spring 2006 and improved in 2010, the system is designed to give a clear indication to consumers as to the energy performance they can expect from their windows. It measures the whole window including the frame and the glass and takes into account 3 factors which influence the energy performance – heat loss, solar gain and energy lost through air filtration. The minimum level of window that can be fitted now is a C and the minimum recommended by the Energy Saving Trust (hyper link) is a C.

I have condensation on the inside of my windows – are they faulty?

Condensation is occurs naturally and is not indicative of a fault with your windows. As houses have become warmer, the problem has become more apparent. We now have sophisticated heating systems and have eliminated draughts from doors and windows, as well as insulating our lofts. All these elements combined mean we have reduced the level of ventilation into our homes. To reduce the amounts of condensation, consider the following options:

  • Open a section of window to provide natural ventilation
  • Draught-proof your internal doors and keep doors shut to prevent water vapour transferring from your kitchen and bathrooms to the rest of your home
  • Where possible locate your radiators under the window which will help keep the temperature on the inside of your glass at a reasonable level
  • Fit a ventilator/ extraction unit in the kitchen and bathroom
  • Fit night ventilation facilities in your bedroom windows such as a ventilation grill in or above the door
Are your window profiles made from recycled PVC-U?

There is minimal recycled content in the window frame profile in line with British Standard 12608. The vast majority of this content will be in the reinforcement. Most of the recycled plastic generated through our sister-company, Dekura, is used to produce the reinforcement and other long-life building products such as cills, down-pipes, underground pipes, fascias and soffits. Profile 22 also offers a specialist recycled profile system called RECO22 which is made from 98% recycled material.

Is there a way I can tell the energy rating of my windows, besides reading the label?

The energy rating is determined by various different components of a window. The elements to consider include the frame type (ie: Profile 22), the glass, the gas used to fill the sealed unit and the spacer bar within the sealed unit. Energy-rated windows will have a small sticker applied to the spacer bar inside the sealed unit.

Do you supply triple-glazing and if so, where can I find more information about it?

We do supply triple-glazing. You can contact us and request a copy of our booklet which details the features and benefits or ask your Profile 22 installer for more information.

How should I clean my windows?

Always avoid solvent based or abrasive cleaners. Wash frames with soap and water every four months to remove grime and atmospheric deposits. If required, use a soft cloth to apply a non-abrasive cleaner suitable for plastics. Take care not to disturb any sealant.
