Window styles from Eco Doors and Windows

At Eco Doors and Windows, we understand the importance of finding the right window design for your rooms, and we will thoroughly support you through the whole process. We put together a handy guide of all our options, so you can have a think about what option appeals to you the most. Read our short descriptions of our window designs!

Awning windows

Awning windows are hinged at the top of the frame and open outward. They are a versatile option that offers space-saving capabilities on the inside of your home. As one of the most popular window design choices in New Zealand, awning windows are a high-performing option that can be installed in a multitude of rooms. The unique friction hinge from Eco Doors and Windows ensures that the window stays open at the desired angle you want. It can also open to a full 70-degree angle with a gentle push.


Casement windows

Casement windows are hinged at the side and open outwards like a door. The unique friction hinges ensure that the window stays open at the exact angle you want, while the structure is also able to be pushed out to a full 70 degrees. Our casement windows can lock at either 10mm or 100mm with restrictor stays, which means you can keep your home ventilated safely even when you aren’t at home. This popular choice can offer excellent benefits for any home and room in New Zealand!


Tilt and turn windows

Tilt and turn windows have a dual operating function that makes them a modern alternative solution for any kind of home in New Zealand. They can be opened inwards like a door and they are also able to tilt at the top to a 100mm opening. These types of windows need sufficient space to operate to their full potential and can be a great choice for bathrooms, toilets and laundries as they offer secure and simple ventilation. We often install these windows in modern homes across the country that are looking for increased ventilation and airflow, without having to open the whole structure.


Bifold windows

Eco Doors and Windows’ bifold windows come with three to six panels, giving homeowners the opportunity to find the exact glass size and solution they are looking for. This design is a great choice for those who want to increase their home’s indoor-outdoor flow. The main panel of the window swings freely and can also be pinned back to remain wide open, while the other panels fold back to 90 degrees from the house. We regularly see this design in kitchens and dining areas that are connected to outdoor entertainment spaces. With our bifold windows, you can take full control of your space!


Sliding windows

Our sliding windows are a traditional space-saving option that can be configured as one fixed and one sliding panel or both panels sliding. These are an excellent choice if you don’t have sufficient space on the inside or outside of your window. If you are looking for a space-saving solution, then there is no better choice than the sliding windows from Eco Doors and Windows.


Stacking sliding windows

Stacking sliding windows have a larger opening than our standard sliding windows making them an excellent choice if you are looking to maximise your indoor-outdoor flow while also saving some space. They come with three panels that can be configured in the following ways: one panel is fixed while the other two slide or all three panels slide. Stacking sliding windows are a popular option to place next to outdoor entertainment spaces due to their large configurations.


Smart slide windows

Smart slide windows are the most modern and innovative option on the market. They not only slide effortlessly and close softly, but they also seal tightly, which makes them a great choice for homes that are located in extra high wind zone areas. They come with two panels, where one is fixed and the other slides. Our windows will keep your home comfortable and offer an easy and straightforward way of operation. This unique solution is a great choice for any type of house, whether it’s a new build or a renovation.
