Customer Question

Hi, i have a holiday cottage (gite) which i rent out during the summer. I need to replace a window in one of the first floor bedrooms, and i need to know whether this window can be used as an escape route (ie fully opened to climb out). I'm considering two kinds of pvc double glazing.. one which opens only at the top, and one which fully opens sideways. Do i need the sideways one by law, or can I use the top opening one? If i do need the sideways one by law, is there a minimum opening dimension to allow someone to climb out?

As these matters obey to local planning rules - you cannot choose any type of window you like in any place, one would suggest you take the matter to a local architect.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

this is not to do with the aesthetics of the window, rather the opening functionality. in the UK, building regulations dictate the 'law' regarding how windows should function in different locations around a property at a national level, are you suggesting that health and safety requirements differ from one region to the next in France? can you point me to somewhere that confirms that?
