Historical Windows


The outer sash of the Historic-type window EV47/IV78-2 is 47mm thick with 4mm single glazing, the inner one – 78 mm thick with a 24 mm single-chamber insulating glass unit and 2 sealing contours. For both sashes, we use modern Roto NT fittings, usually with T-shaped decorative handles. Concealed fitting may be selected for rectangular sashes.

Thermal conductivity coefficient of the window UW=1.0 W/m2K (calculated according to DIN EN ISO 10077-1), sound insulation around 36 dB.

The handle of the outer sash is not positioned in the middle of the decorative bar, as is usually the case with the historic box-type windows – to be able to open the outer active (in this case the right) sash without opening the inner passive (in this case the left) sash. Besides, it allows connecting the outer sash with inner one using a special mechanism to be able to open both simultaneously with one handle and lock in ventilation position. If necessary, it is also possible to place both handles on the decorative closing bar. On the outside of the window, decorative cornices and capitals can be formed.


Classical box-type window or lined window – is a historically tested wooden window structure with a frame embedded in the facade plane and having two sashes (inner and outer), both opening inwards. This type of window is, in fact, the only one suitable for buildings built from the XVIII century until 40th of the XX century. Its basic form and material have not changed over time, only the technical design has changed – nowadays, a heat-saving insulating glass unit and one or two rubber sealing contours are often embedded in the inner sash.

In historic buildings, when replacing the worn out box-type windows with 70, 80 and even 90mm thick modern windows, it often turns out that the new window is located in the freezing zone of the exterior wall and the window box gets wet and starts to mould because of the condensate. Due to the large construction depth (up to 200mm and even more) of the box-type window components, this zone is not located inside the room, but rather in the window structure between the sashes, therefore no moisture or mould appears in the window box. Box-type windows produced by FLORA Ltd meet the requirements for the restoration of cultural monuments. We also offer arched box-type windows.

Panes of a box-type window are usually divided using decorative glazing bars, the facade side features decorative cornices and capitals. The outer sash is glazed using silicone; however, decorative glass mouldings are also possible. We apply rubber sealing only to the inner sash to prevent condensation between the sashes and glass from sweating.

If you have to assess and compare the visual appeal of different types of windows, the box-type windows are definitely ranked at the top of the list – it is a magnificent, functional and decorative component, the pride of any facade.
