Open up your home to the outdoors and enjoy a satisfying view of your garden with our French windows. A rustic, attractive option, this model of window improves both your home’s ventilation and its ambient romance.
French windows come in a pair that open together. This design can give you a pleasing portal onto the outside world, and can also function as an auxiliary fire escape. For many, French windows draw romantic images of Paris, to which they then compare their own property — in actual fact, they have been installed for centuries all over Europe and the UK, and can be just as stylish in less fanciful settings!
We’re adamant that this style of window can complement almost any home, but have a particular soft-spot for fitting them in cottage-type properties.
French-style windows will never go out of fashion, and all our products are made-to-order at our affiliated Clevedon factory to our exacting standards. We want you to be able to feel safe in the knowledge that your windows are hard-wearing and pleasing to the eye.

Charming and strong
French windows are an especially good choice for windows on the upper floors of a property, where they’ll give the most impressive views. We can also fit them on the first floor, where they can be a handy option if your current window isn’t large enough to serve as an adequate fire escape.
Our team members are always happy to give advice, so don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about our French windows. If you have something specific in mind we may even be able to provide a free no-obligation quote.

What is the difference between French windows and French doors?
Both French windows and French doors open and close as a pair, but usually have different locking systems and handles. Simply put, this is because they’re different sizes and therefore require different opening mechanisms and levels of security.
French doors’ frames and sashes are much thicker than those of French windows, and French doors are much taller and thinner. Despite these differences, both work with two side-hung panels that open out from the middle with no pillar between them. When both windows or doors are open you’ll have an unobstructed view to your garden or entrance for a cool breeze.
French doors are usually fitted on the ground floor so that they open into the garden, whereas French windows are smaller, looking good on any floor. Either way, both give increased ventilation and a fabulous view from within.
Are French windows secure?
French windows are just as secure as any other window. As ever, however, this depends on the quality of the materials they’re made of, the type of glazing and the security mechanisms used.
At Launa, we try to offer satisfaction and peace of mind through providing quality in all three areas. All of our glazing is A-rated and comes with heat-toughened glass on the ground floor. All of our windows are in compliance with the Police-led Secured by Design initiative, which works to improve home security in the UK.
Do French windows swing in or out?
This is completely up to you! Some of our customers find inward-opening windows easier to clean from the inside, but others prefer a more traditional outward-opening model. If you have large, heavy curtains already fitted, these might make the decision for you.
Outward-opening windows mean your indoor space isn’t taken up by window frames. What’s more, our windows come fitted with modern high-friction hinges, making it unlikely they’ll suffer as a result of sudden gusts of wind. Outward opening windows also tend to collect less rain and debris in the frames.
Ultimately the decision lies with you, and we’re happy to help customers work out which works best for their home.
What are the advantages of French windows?
French windows are sought after because they give unobstructed views from inside a property. If your home has beautiful country vistas, you’ll enjoy them without any pillars or panels in the way. French windows also allow you to cool and ventilate your home very well in the summer months, allowing fresh air to stream in through a considerable opening.
These windows improve the light, offer a sweeping view and provide superior ventilation — you can speak to one of our experts today to find how best they might work for your home.

Our suppliers conform to strictly controlled and independently monitored Quality Management Systems such as ISO 9001, to ensure that everything is done correctly and according to best practise.
