The new FPP-V preSelect²

From the moment of their market launch, FAKRO’s practical top hung windows have found excellent acceptance among roofers, architects, planners and building owners. They have since proven their worth on the market. With the FPP-V preSelect2 top-hung swing window, FAKRO presents the further development of the successful, tried-and-tested model with preSelect technology. The success story will continue with the upgrade of this popular roof window.

The extended folding function is very useful. The window sash can now be opened to any angle between 0 and 45 degrees. The opening angle has been increased by about 30%. In the swing function, the sash can, of course, be swivelled by 180 degrees – for example, for cleaning or maintenance purposes – as always.

The new preSelect switch, which allows you to easily switch between the two opening functions “swing” and “fold”, is integrated into the bottom of the new model’s frame and is only visible when the sash is opened.

In addition, the entire fitting system has been redesigned and improved. It allows even more convenient handling with a concurrently extended size range and more space under the window sash. The range has also increased in the low-energy sector with additional window sizes.

In addition to the innovations for the FPP-V preSelect² top-hung swing window, the established has also been retained: With the topSafe system, the windows have increased burglary protection, and with the adjustable V40P permanent ventilation in the upper frame, an effective ventilation system is preserved that enables a healthy microclimate in the attic. The modern top-hung swing windows are equipped with a quadruple sealing system, and FAKRO will also continue to provide the lifetime guarantee against shattering due to hail for the pane packages with toughened safety glass outer pane.
