Canopy Stay Window

A canopy stay window is a modern outward opening window, where the sash opens out in a vertical plane.

This type of window is very common in modern Scandinavian family houses today.

This type of window has today replaced the traditional top hung windows, as they are very user friendly. They open less outwards than a top hung window, but they still provide more ventilation. When opening, the sash slides down in the top and thereby provides ventilation also in the top of the window.
