Title: Window, in particular for mounting in an inclined roof surface

Abstract: A window for mounting in an inclined roof surface has a frame structure and a sash structure, which is hingedly connected (13-15;51-53) with the frame structure for pivoting about a horizontal axis relative thereto, and in which an insulating pane (3;33) is mounted. The top, bottom and side members (1,2,4,5;31,32,34,35) of the frame and sash structures are made from wood profiles with exterior cladding members (16-18;46,48) of weather-protecting material which, in the closed position of the window, overlap the spaces between the frame and sash structures and the hinge connection between the structures. The top, bottom and side members (1,2;31,32) of the frame structure are constituted by profiles with substantially parallelogram-shaped cross section with exterior edge faces (6;36) positioned in a common plane, with which common plane the adjacent interior and exterior opposite side faces (7,8;37,38) of the profile cross section form respectively an angle exterior to the parallelogram-shaped cross section and an angle interior to the parallelogram-shaped cross section in a range of 95 to 140.degree..
