How to build a double glazed bar hatch

Postby luzippu » Tue Jan 26, 2021 2:06 pm


anyone in here ever built one or would know how?

I want to add a top hung window to my garden studio to be used as a bar hatch.
Has to be double glazed to maintain insulation and soundproofing and has to fully open to at least 90', so a normal side sliding hinged system would not work.
Perhaps with a gas strut system to maintain open (not essential).
Size would be approx 1600m x 800mm

I tried to look online but no luck.

Any feedback or recommendations welcome.
