The exceptional feature of the trapezoid window, making it stand out from other windows, is its geometrical form. Trapezoids have two sides parallel, but the lengths joining them can vary and theses can be identical in length or different lengths and thus form different angles in each corner.
As well as these trapezoids there are parallel-sided and right-angled trapezoids. The shorter one of the base lines is, then the more the trapezoid looks like a triangle. Size and angle of the corners can be designed individually to achieve the ideal fit – and depending on the house conditions. This unique design can be further enhanced by the choice of the materials.

Double and triple glazing and thermally insulating sealing provide effective help in stopping heat loss and saving on energy costs.
