Window styles can be with or without an external frame although the construction of the double-glazed acrylic window panel in both are identical. Most windows are opening and hinged from the top.
Most caravan windows now have a printed peripheral band, usually in black or silver, which may also include a dot fade pattern similar to what you see on car windows.
Acrylic is available in clear and various tints. The most common tint fitted in caravans is grey. Bronze tint is fitted to many models built up to 2005 but has been withdrawn as it was found not to be UV stable and this resulted in the bronze tint fading with prolonged exposure to sunlight.
Acrylic is relatively strong but is susceptible to cracking if it sustains a hard impact on the edge. Cracks cannot be repaired. The surface of acrylic is also susceptible to scratching.
Safety Glazing Approval Marking:
It is a legal requirement that all double-glazed windows fitted caravan, either new or as replacement, must comply with UNECE Regulation 43.00; the regulation that covers safety glazing fitted to all wheeled vehicles. Windows must be indelibly marked with the E mark approval; signified by an ‘E’ in a circle followed by the 43R approval number (the same approval marking visible on all car windows).
Some replacement windows are offered by manufacturers that have no safety approval and their caravan windows show no approval marking. These windows will not have been manufactured to the stringent E mark safety standard and cannot be warranted to meet the E mark 43R approval. Fitting windows without E mark approval is risking the safety of your caravan and other road users, therefore, when ordering a replacement window ensure it is marked with a E mark safety glazing approval.
Just would like to say thank you for such an amazing service on fitting our caravan window on Wednesday.
Thanks to you and Jim persevering with our window we now have it fitted and ready for us to go to Europe later this year. We had it fitted with your recommended company Silver Shield and I mentioned your name at Advanced Glass. Once again I can’t thank you enough for your help.
All at advancedglass,
I would like to thank everyone for the wonderful service you gave me today. Lewis went well beyond the call of duty to ensure I had no more problems with my Motorhome. It is unfortunately very rare today to find someone who cares as much about keeping the customer happy and delivering not a good service but a great service.
I will recommend you to everyone I know in the camping and caravaning world.
Just a quick note to thank you for the window which arrived yesterday well packed and within 20 mins I was once again a “happy camper”. Excellent service I would have no hesitation in recommending you in future.
I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your help with my caravan window a couple of weeks ago. Lewis in particular was so patient and diligent, and didn’t mind going the extra mile to swap the windows over to match the colour. Jim and Bethan were great setting it all up so there was no hitch, which was really important as I was bringing the van over especially, Jim also made a great cup of coffee, which was much appreciated. Thanks again from a happy customer.
Just a quick note to say thank you for the efficient service I received at your premises when I brought my Burstner caravan in for what I thought would be three new windows. In the event, I had six new windows fitted in next to no time. I was back home by lunchtime. I can’t recall the names of the two men who did the work but they will know who they were. They were friendly and helpful, sorting out new window stays and catches as required and even to the extent of helping me to manhandle the caravan out of your premises after some kind soul had parked at the back of me, making it impossible to leave. The new full set of windows look great, especially now I’ve given the caravan a wash and polish. I feel like I have a new caravan . Many thanks.
Thank you so much for organising our replacement caravan window and getting it to us so quickly, superb service. THANK YOU AND EVERY BODY INVOLVED.
I would like to thank you for all your help and patience, window came today, window in caravan, again thank you.
Just a quick email to thank you all for your help. Window was delivered before estimated time, and was perfect in every way. Hopefully my motorhome will not be broken into again, but would not hesitate to use you in the future.

Burstner Caravan Windows
Just a quick thank you for the great service. In my job I deal with a lot of suppliers and most of them need to take a leaf out of your book.
Just a quick note to say thank you very much for supplying the replacement window for my Sterling Eccles Onyx caravan. It came very well packaged and protected and arrived in the timescale given at the time or ordering. It fitted perfectly. Very impressed with the service and will recommend you.
I would like to thank you for advising and dealing with my enquiry promptly. It has saved me a considerable amount of time and expense to carry out the repair myself.
