I would like to install a UPVC window upside-down. It is this style of wind
I want to install it so that the opening section is at the bottom. I'm gues
sing that I simply need to unscrew the hinges, and then screw them back on
in a new position. The mushroom keeps would also need screwing onto the opp
osite side of the opening, so that they will be at the bottom when the wind
ow is installed. (It has this type of shootbolt espag mechanism):
Am I missing anything? Any tips on repositioning the hinges, etc?
surely, if you rotate the opener within the frame, the side locking
mechanism will move in the wrong direction?
so you need to keep the opener in the same orientation, and move the handle
and that half of the hinges as well
Frankly I think it's a fools errand you are trying and you should get
someone to make you a window that's constructed as you require

Thanks - but there is no side locking mechanism - only the horizontal espag
bar shown in my link. I've had another look, and I still can't foresee any
issues in simply switching the position of the hings and the mushroom keep
s. But I could be wrong. I'll also need to drill new drain holes, of course
