In many cases, the question may arise which window and door should open to what direction. In the following diagrams, we would like to give you some help and introduce some common ways of openings.

The opening mode of the window is always defined by facing the window from the inside. The door or window that is hanged onto its frame on its left side is left-oriented window and consequently the opposite will be the right-oriented window.
