What are Picture Windows?
Picture windows are large fixed windows that create the effect of framing outdoor scenery like a picture frame. Because picture windows do not operate, they’re often paired with windows that do. Picture windows can be assembled with or without a sash. Windows without a sash, also called direct glaze windows, can provide larger unobstructed views.
With their large size, picture windows invite in expansive views and an abundance of warm, natural light. And because there are no moving parts, picture windows are more energy efficient than operating windows of a similar size. Recently, Marvin introduced a venting picture window. Its unique, forward thinking design delivers large unobstructed views but can also capture a breeze and provide all the health benefits associated with fresh air.
