You should be able to find wooden windows at other wooden window supply companies, but Van Acht is in the business of manufacturing the best quality windows in South Africa. By “best”, we mean windows that are all-rounders in terms of long-lasting quality, comfortable functionality and durable structure. The wood we use to manufacture our windows is Meranti. This gives your windows both strength and beauty—that elusive combination everyone wants.

As of recently, manor windows must also meet specific standards. The SANS 613 performance test examines whether a window complies with their strict regulations. We’re proud to say that Van Acht’s entire manor range has undergone this test and DOES COMPLY. With full 90-degree hinges and satin chrome handles, our manor windows are still the best in the country.

The type of manor window you select will depend on the style you’re going for. Small pane manor windows offer a classic look that still manages to be fresh and trendy. Full pane manor windows on the other hand are a lot more open—while still keeping your home secure when locked. Full pane top hung manor windows give a much fuller look to the interior and exterior of your house. The choice is yours—so go through our gallery and find YOUR perfect style..


Listed below is the AAAMSA performance test criteria that our manor window range had to comply with.

  • Minimal air infiltration & no water penetration
  • Withstand positive & negative pressure
  • Structural strength, operating forces & no deformation
  • AAAMSA Certificate no: D0895
