Fixed Picture Windows

Fixed windows have no moveable parts — they can’t be opened or closed, making them the most energy efficient type of window. They can also be manufactured in larger sizes than operational styles as well as custom shapes to match any unique design features of your home. This style is great at framing an unobstructed view of the outdoors. Picture windows are meant to be seen — they often serve as a decorative feature in homes, displaying an attractive view of your property. This style is virtually maintenance-free, as it has no mechanical and operational parts that could deteriorate over time. Fixed picture windows can be custom manufactured in combination with operational styles to create bay and bow windows.

The two installers sent to my home to install a window plus two doors did an excellent job. The day was hot but they were on time, came with everything they needed, had no delays, and cleaned up. I was so impressed. They were very polite and considerate, and the company is lucky to have these two working for them. I will have no problem recommending Centennial!

FAQs

When should I use a fixed window?

Fixed windows are a good choice when you do not need to worry about ventilation or egress. They have no moveable parts, so they can be manufactured in larger sizes than any other type and in various custom shapes. They offer the clearest sightlines of all styles and are often matched with other operational styles to create large combination and feature windows.

What room should I put a fixed window in?

Fixed windows offer clear, unobstructed sightlines and work nicely in rooms where you want to let in lots of natural light. Their best application is in combination with other fixed and operational styles to create large feature windows and combination units. Keep in mind that they do not open; they are harder to clean than many other styles and must be used in rooms that have other options for emergency egress.

Do fixed windows come in different shapes?

We can manufacture these in any custom shape. Unlike every other style, fixed windows have no moveable parts, so custom shapes will not reduce their energy efficiency or hinder their operation. At Centennial, our products are manufactured specifically for your home, so we are able to work with your existing shaped openings or help you create a new opening.
