Fourth, the difference between top-hung windows and bottom-hung windows

1. The opening method is different

The top-hung windows are pushed open from the inside out, and the bottom-hung windows are pulled inwards and upwards or pushed outwards and upwards.

2. Different functions

Because the top-hung windows are opened upwards and outwards, if it rains and the rain is not strong, it can form a certain rainproof effect. The top-hung windows that open outward can also play a role in exhausting smoke.

Bottom-hung windows can play a certain role in heat preservation and sound insulation; when opened inward, the indoor ventilation is good, and the wind will change the direction of the wind when it blows to the window, so the wind will not directly blow to the human body, which can improve the indoor air. The role of quality.

3. Different application occasions

Top-hung windows are suitable for high-rise buildings and are often used in public places such as toilets or glass curtain walls.

In addition, because its switch direction is to push up and down, this avoids the accident of bumping yourself because of opening and closing windows and doors.
