Window styles from Eco Hamilton

Explore our wide range of window frame styles from Eco Hamilton. We know how important it is to select the right design for your home, so we will support you through the selection process in any way that we can. Here is a short description of each window design available from our store!

Awning windows

Awning windows are an excellent way to save some space on the inside of your home, and they are one of the most popular design choices across New Zealand homes. They are hinged at the top of the frame and open outwards, making them a versatile and high performing solution for many different usages. Our unique friction hinge helps the window stay put at the desired angle that you push them to and prevents it from falling in when released. They can also open to a full 70-degree angle with a gentle push. Eco Hamilton’s awning windows are a classic, versatile choice for all types of rooms!

Casement windows

Casement windows are hinged at the side and open outwards like a door. Eco Hamilton’s frames can lock at 10mm or 100mm with restrictor stays, which ensure that your home stays ventilated and secure even when you are out. The friction hinges help stay the window open at the exact angle you want. Just like our awning windows, the casement windows are able to open to a full 70 degrees. Eco Hamilton’s casement windows are a very popular choice across the country as they provide increased airflow to every home.

Tilt and turn windows

Tilt and turn windows are a modern alternative solution for homes across New Zealand. Their dual operating function allows them to be opened inwards like a door, and they are also able to tilt inwards at the top with a 100mm opening. Eco Hamilton often installs these windows in modern homes looking for increased ventilation and airflow without having to open the whole structure. Tilt and turn windows need sufficient space to operate to the full potential and are a great choice for bathrooms, toilets and laundries that need secure and simple ventilation. They are also ideal for rooms that are by a pathway that doesn’t have enough space for a traditional window.

Bifold windows

Bifold windows are a great choice for owners who want to increase their home’s indoor-outdoor flow. Our windows come with three to six panels, which gives owners a wide range of options whatever sized glass they are looking for. The main panel of the bifold windows swings freely and can be pinned back to remain wide open, while the other panels fold back to 90 degrees from the house. With this option, you can take full control of your space as you are able to open as many panels as you want. Eco Hamilton often installs this window in kitchens and dining areas that are connected to outdoor entertaining spaces.

Sliding windows

Eco Hamilton’s sliding windows can be configured as one fixed and one sliding panel or both panels sliding, giving you the chance to select the exact option you are looking for. Sliding windows are an excellent choice for rooms that don’t have a large space on the inside or the outside. Save space with this excellent window choice and connect to the outside simply.

Stacking sliding windows

Stacking sliding windows are an excellent option if you are looking to maximise your indoor-outdoor flow. They have a larger opening than the standard sliding windows and 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 are sliding. Eco Hamilton often installs this option next to outdoor entertainment spaces due to their large configuration.

Smart slide windows

Smart slide windows are the most modern and innovative option on the market. Eco Hamilton’s windows come with two panels: one fixed and one sliding. They slide effortlessly, close softly and seal tightly, making them a great choice for homes in extra high wind zone areas. Smart slid windows keep your home comfortable and offer you an easy and straightforward way of operation. This is an excellent choice for any type of house, whether it’s a new build or a renovation. This unique solution will make you think differently about windows!
