The term eyebrow window is used in two ways: a curved top window in a wall or in an eyebrow dormer.
A window that cannot be opened, whose function is limited to allowing light to enter (unlike an unfixed window, which can open and close).
Single Hung Sash Windows
One sash is movable (usually the bottom one) and the other fixed. This is the earlier form of sliding sash window, and is also cheaper.
Double Hung Sash Windows
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. Three types of spring balances are called a tape or clock spring balance; channel or block-and-tackle balance; and a spiral or tube balance.
Double-hung sash windows were traditionally often fitted with shutters. Sash windows can be fitted with simplex hinges that let the window be locked into hinges on one side, while the rope on the other side is detached—so the window can be opened for fire escape or cleaning.
Horizontal Sliding Sash Windows
Has two or more sashes that overlap slightly but slide horizontally within the frame.
A window with a hinged sash that swings in or out like a door comprising either a side-hung, top-hung (also called “awning window”), or occasionally bottom-hung sash or a combination of these types, sometimes with fixed panels on one or more sides of the sash.
An awning window is a casement window that is hung horizontally, hinged on top, so that it swings outward like an awning. In addition to be used independently, they can be stacked, several in one opening, or combined with fixed glass. They are particularly useful for ventilation.
A hopper window is a bottom-pivoting casement window that opens by tilting vertically, typically to the inside.
A window hung on one hinge on each of two opposite sides which allows the window to revolve when opened. The hinges may be mounted top and bottom (Vertically Pivoted) or at each jamb (Horizontally Pivoted).
Tilt and Slide Windows
A window (more usually a door-sized window) where the sash tilts inwards at the top and then slides horizontally behind the fixed pane.
Tilt and Turn Windows
A tilt and turn window can both tilt inwards at the top or open inwards from hinges at the side.
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 before forced air heating and cooling.
Side Light Windows
Windows beside a door or window are called side-, wing-, and margen-lights and flanking windows.
Jalousie or Louvered Windows
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.
A window set in a roof structure or high in a wall, used for daylighting.
A flat or slope window used for daylighting, built into a roof structure that is out of reach.
A sloped window used for daylighting, built into a roof structure. It is one of the few windows that could be used as an exit.
Roof Lantern Windows
A roof lantern is a multi-paned glass structure, resembling a small building, built on a roof for day or moon light.
A multi-panel window, with at least three panels set at different angles to create a protrusion from the wall line.
This form of bay window most often appears in Tudor-style houses and monasteries. It projects from the wall and does not extend to the ground. Originally a form of porch, they are often supported by brackets or corbels.
Thermal, or Diocletian, windows are large semicircular windows (or niches) which are usually divided into three lights (window compartments) by two mullions. The central compartment is often wider than the two side lights on either side of it.
A picture window is a large fixed window in a wall, typically without glazing bars, or glazed with only perfunctory glazing bars near the edge of the window. Picture windows provide an unimpeded view, as if framing a picture.
Emergency Exit Windows
A window big enough and low enough so that occupants can escape through the opening in an emergency, such as a fire.
A French window (when hinged French door) is a large door-sized lattice light, typically set in pairs or multiples thereof.
Double Paned Windows
Double-paned windows have two parallel panes (slabs of glass) with a separation of typically about 1 cm; this space is permanently sealed and filled at the time of manufacture with dry air or other dry nonreactive gas. Such windows provide a marked improvement in thermal insulation (and usually in acoustic insulation as well) and are resistant to fogging and frosting caused by temperature differential.
