Australians like to entertain, so it’s no surprise that servery windows are becoming a popular item. Servery windows are like the windows used at golf courses or numerous to go windows in fast food restaurants to serve food. Our servery windows consist of bifold windows and a sill that is large enough to serve food on.
How We Make Our Servery Windows
Our servery windows are made of solid, locally-sourced timber and thick, weatherproof glass that we have made for us by a WA manufacturer. We use stile and rail construction along with tenon joinery. To make sure they stay together in all weather conditions, we use a marine strength adhesive to put it all together.
We normally use a bifold window design because they work so well as servery windows. The bifold design allows you to fold the windows and store them at one or sides of the frame. This opens up more than 90% of the width and all of the height of the window for serving. They are also incredibly easy to open and close.
The wide sill is what makes a servery window a servery window. It sticks out from the frame and is roomy enough to place a lot of food, beverages, plates and utensils on. This lets you serve or pass food through the window into an outdoor patio or alfresco living area.
Obviously, the best place for a servery window is the kitchen. If you can pass food straight out of your kitchen to a patio right under the window or an area close to your kitchen, you can save a lot of time when cooking for friends. If you combine it with an outdoor BBQ, your backyard can be the “hub” for family, friends or work acquaintances.
