Room with a view.

Anyone can have a room with a view, according to the manufacturer of bent glass garden windows. Rather than bending light, the garden window bends the glass--providing a better view.

The frame is made from extra-thick polyvinyl chloride (PVC) for added strength, and is said to be virtually maintenance free. It is fusion welded and insulated, eliminating air infiltration and water leaks, and thereby demonstrating high energy efficiency.

One piece of glass is bent to reach from the top of the frame to the bottom without any crossbar or muntin to interfere with the view or hinder sunlight from streaming through the glass. The window also features side panel screened trapezoid casement units that open a full 90 degrees for improved ventilation. A multipoint locking system assures security.
