There are many different choices when it comes to window replacement, from the style to the material. If you’re shopping for replacement windows, you’ve probably heard of several types of windows, including fixed-pane. What is a fixed-pane window?
A fixed-pane, or picture, window is not operable, meaning it doesn’t open or close. Fixed-pane windows typically have a large pane of glass and no glazing bars, providing unobstructed views.
Different styles of windows can be fixed-pane—often geometric/special shape and bay windows (which are usually picture windows flanked by two smaller windows).
Benefits of Fixed-Pane Windows
There are a number of advantages fixed-pane windows offer. These windows:
- Are energy-efficient: Because fixed windows don’t open or close, air can’t leak in or out. Installing energy-efficient windows can help you reduce your energy bills and live more comfortably, no matter the season.
- Are low-maintenance: There are no handles or hardware to deal with—and fewer moving parts means there’s a lower chance of something breaking and requiring repair!
- Provide expansive views: Fixed windows offer large, expansive views. If you have landscaping in your yard you want to highlight, consider this style of window.
- Can brighten your home: Do you have dim rooms in your home? Fixed-pane windows can easily add light to help brighten the space.
These types of windows can also complement any home.
