When you need a window suitable for large-sized openings in multi-storey buildings, Arctic Glass UK UPVC pivot windows are the perfect solution.

This system is available in our 3000 Series Contemporary suite.


The below specification details our advanced centre UPVC Pivot window system. Designed for the high-rise market sector, Arctic Glass introduced the Pivot window to its range in early 2009. This was to maintain our ethos of offering our customers the most comprehensive product range in timber and UPVC available on the marketplace.

Locking System

Utilising adjustable roller locking points to both the head and the cill, our UPVC Pivot window benefits from an integrated espagnolette locking system. This ensures excellent compression on all four sides of the Pivot window which is extremely important due to its application on tall buildings.


Fully reversible with self-engaging restrictor, our UPVC Pivot hinge comes as standard with a powder coated finish. The sash can turn through approximately 180 degrees allowing easy cleaning of the external pane. Alternatively, with the Pivot window partially open, it can be used to create a natural airflow allowing warm air to escape through the top and cool air to replace this at the bottom.

Tested to in excess of 30,000 cycles without defect and with a maximum load capacity for the horizontal of 60kg per pair, our UPVC Pivot window is ideal for schools, hospitals, offices, hotels, residential home and sheltered housing.

Energy Efficiency

Utilising the comprehensive support from our supply chain, we are able to perform whole frame U-Value calculations for your Pivot window requirements.

BS7950 Security

Optional upgrade of our Pivot windows to meet the standards of BS7950 is available upon request. This window will shortly be tested at a UKAS accredited test house and the results will be updated in due course.

Secured By Design

Our UPVC pivot windows do not currently achieve the Secured by Design status. For SBD requirements.
