Characteristics of wooden windows and balconies
Wood has been used for centuries as a material for the production of windows. Unfortunately, this raw material is associated with former windows, which did not provide due protection against heat loss. In addition, they were distorted during operation and, after years of use, did not function properly. Constantly evolving modern technologies have made modern wooden windows distinguished by very good technical parameters. Moreover, they are durable and retain their properties throughout their useful life. They are available as standard or slim (Denkmalschutz) . Exceptional aesthetics, protection of the interior from heat loss and weather resistance make wood joinery a luxury product. Numerous types of wood and a wide range of colours make the offer of MS Windows and Doors can meet the expectations of the most demanding customers.

Features and shapes of windows and balconies made of wood
Standard windows and balcony doors (open, tilt, tilt and turn, pivot, fixed sash and fixed frame) take the form of a rectangle. Thanks to carefully developed technologies, the joinery can also take on other shapes – arc, wheel, ellipse, triangle or trapezoid. Depending on the technological possibilities, these structures are created as tilt, tilt and turn, fixed glazing or pivot.
