A series of four to six casements angled in a bow shape extending past the exterior of the building. Typically, only the end casements are operable. The bow window may have a roof system, head and seat boards, and/or edge banding.
These windows project out from the front or side of a house. Bow windows are rounded. They are often formed of the window glass itself and do not have any structure beneath it. These windows may be found on any level of a building.
An elegant series of three to six casement windows gently angled in a bow shape that extends outside the house structure. Generally, the units on the far ends are operational. Available with head and seat boards.
Windows in the wall of a rounded bay or other round surface, where the curtain rod is to be mounted on the horizontal plane (as opposed to the vertical plane for arch window curtain rods). Bow window curtain rods can be used for bow windows or rounded walls in general such as the walls on spiral staircases, etc. See measuring help for bow / arch window curtain rods for further details. Highland Forge offers bow curtain rods so long as the rod is to be perfectly round, meaning it must be exactly half a circle or a smaller section of a perfect circle.
A series of narrow windows, (usually five to eight) which have been mulled together utilizing a twelve degree mullion. The finished product will produce the effect of a single window which bows or curves horizontally and projects twelve to eighteen inches from the building exterior.
A combination of two or more windows mulled together with each window offset at a small angle (usually between 10 and 20 degrees). A horizontal cross section would resemble an archer's bow. Bow window units normally consist of four to six individual hung windows or picture windows or a combination of both types.
Window, divided into three sections, that curves outward in an arc, extending the window area out from the wall, so that it gives a room a larger appearance. Since they are supported from the wall or floor and usually don't extend to the roof line, they need their own roof projection from the wall. Ready made bay windows come in pre-assembled components that are easily installed into a wall opening. Also called a bay window.
