Constructed with steel reinforcement, heavy glazing, and dual compression weather tight seals, Bede's stylish casement windows are built to withstand the most extreme conditions, without sacrificing views. All of this and more make Bede's casement windows the standard by which all other casements are compared.
With the option of having no center bar, dual outward swinging sashes allow you to open large wall sections, maximizing your interior space. A friction arm prevents the sashes from opening more than 90 degrees, so the windows can always be operated safely from the inside. The clever mechanism also allows the sashes to be "fixed" to any opening position, when only a little air is desired, or where high winds could potentially damage a fully open sash.
Becoming more and more popular for today's designers, awning windows have the unique ability to let air in while keeping light rain out. Similar to Bede's casement windows, the awning maximizes your viewing area with seamless, single lite construction. When used in bathrooms, where ventilation and privacy can be an issue, Bede's awning windows can be ordered with several textured glass selections and nearly endless decorative glass options.
Tilt & Turn
The remarkable design of the thermally broken tilt & turn inward swinging casement window is form and function perfected, yet still remarkably affordable. The ingenious hardware allows the sash to be swung inward, or tilted down, to achieve just the right amount of ventilation, without ever detracting from the view. When "tilted", air is directed upward, eliminating wind gusts, while improving circulation. Dual opening sash systems are available with or without a center meeting stile. Contemporary handle options lend a modern feel to this classic look.
A staple in any architectural design, Bede's picture windows can provide clean aesthetic lines that can be transformed into a centerpiece of your home. With steel reinforcement, thicker glass, and a heavy vinyl wall extrusion, Bede is able to manufacture fixed window sizes that are unmatched in the vinyl window market; Unique shapes, mitered-glass and split finishes all contribute to the versatility and beauty of Bede's aluminum fixed windows.
Rather than riding in a sill pocket where dust and debris collect, Bede's unique sliding windows ride on a raised "self-cleaning" rail, allowing a lifetime of remarkably smooth and maintenance-free operation. Large spans can be covered due to the steel reinforcement and thick vinyl extrusion. Ergonomic handles and a multiple locking point system, combine ease of use with maximum safety.
