Ideal for above head-height installations, the P2 glazing is a safety double glazed unit that comes with a toughened outer pane and laminated inner pane. If an object was to hit the window with force, the glazing would hold in place, much like a car windscreen, until you're able to get it fixed.
Centre pivot roof windows are still the most popular design, and all can be rotated through 180° to allow easy cleaning of the outer pane from within the room.
Operating handle in the base of the sash for ease of use

Fakro roof windows provide the highest standard in roof windows, offering knot free timber every time, high quality finishes and a 20 year guarantee
Fakro roof windows are designed to provide a focal point for any room whether you use them individually or in combinations. Their stylish appearance is matched by the highest standard of manufacturing and finishing which means you can rest assured they will go on looking goos for years to come. Fakro Roof Windows offer a perfect combination of style, sustainability, security and long design life. To achieve such high performance involves ongoing refinement and improvement to every roof window that that Fakro designs.
Bigger glazing area and more light
The design of Fakro roof windows enables more light to be brought to any room. By placing the air inlet at the top of the frame, Fakro roof windows provide a glazing area up to 10% bigger than competitors products of the same size, in which the ventilation flap has been fitted in the sash. The operating handle in the base of the sash is always more convenient for the user.
The redwood pine that Fakro ues offers the clearest visual evidence of roof window quality. Not only does its close grain look stylish, timber comes from FSC certified sources. The double vacuum process using water-borne preservatives provideslasting dimensional stability and all windows are finished with three coates of environmentally freindly lacquer.
Automatic air ventilation in all windows
Many manufacturers use a standard manually operated vent which is inefficient, causing unnecessary heat loss.The Fakro V40P automatic vent which is installed in Fakro pine roof windows is activated by changes in atmospheric pressure. It provides the optimum balance of fresh air regardless of weather conditions
Fakros Top Safe system provides peace of mind that our roof windows offer exceptional burglary resistance. In contrast to products which break simply by applying foot pressure, TopSafe provides additional hinge and lock reinforcement to prevent the sash from being forced. An EUStandard (EN13049) now means you can compare roof window security and all Fakro products achieve a minimum of Class 3. Fakro also manufactures a standard centre pivotwindow, the FTP-V P2 Secure,m which has security glazing.
The highest level of energy saving performance
What really sets Fakro roof windows apart is their low level of heat loss. Unlike some manufacturers who provide U-values just for glazing units, Fakro provides information for the whole window.
Warm glazing spacers
Many roof windows use metallic spacers to seperate panes and these encourage condensation to form by forming a cold 'bridge' between them. By contrast, Fakro uses only warm spacers in order to ensure that this otherwise common problem does not affect Fakro roof windows.
Whether buying natural pine, PU-coated pine or PVC Fakro offers a 10-year warranty for all windows and a 20 year warranty on glazing units.
