Comparing Lo and Hi Profile

   

hi-lo-profile-left

The photo on the left shows the 325 Casement in combination with the 325 Hi Profile Fixed window, creating matching sight lines and properly aligning grills (Simulated Divided Lites in this case) for a more traditional appeal.

hi-lo-profile-right

The photo on the right shows the 325 Awning paired with the 328 Lo Profile Fixed window. Although the Lo Profile frame is narrower than the operable window, the designer selected this profile in favour of achieving maximum visible light in a contemporary home.
