Among their most important functions, windows puncture the facade to provide daylight, views and often fresh air and cross-ventilation. Window units can be fixed, operable or a hybrid between the two. Moisture protection and thermal performance are fundamental considerations, influencing the material choice for the window frame, the glazing and perimeter details.
