Piece put in backwards (unless they intended to have a huge gap between the window sections).

Nope - frames were installed so that all the windows (1st, 2nd floor) need to be removed out not into the house - just checked condo windows same. Hard to see but the bottom retaining flange is in the house. I only partially opened it to take pic of frame. Very heavy double glazed - 3' x 4' each

I could be wrong and maybe installed correctly:scratch_head:

Mine in US - lift pull bottom in - inner first - then outer

3 of the 4 upstairs rooms have balconies - the one with the biggest panes is the one that doesn't.  Will take 2 people to remove outer pane to allow inner to be removed.

@lamoe

rain water running down the window could run inside if flange was on the outside   ??

That's only about 6 1/2 feet - this window is at least 20 feet in the air

Good for doing from inside maybe

I've seen longer ones but couldn't find on Lazada.  You could just tape a short one to a long bamboo or send some kid up a ladder.

Over the past few years we have installed aluminum screened windows in 3 buildings. Without exception, all of the screens are on the inside and must be moved to open the window and then repositioned to get the benefit of the screen. 

I have yet to discover the logic behind this design.

Screened windows in other countries have the screen on the outside - generally fixed in place with spring pins. 

Similarly, sliding windows (in Canada at least) are generally removed from the inside and the outside track provided with drainage. Of course, more modern ones have slide/tilt features for easier cleaning from the inside  

If we ever install any more, I shall ask if we can get backwards windows 😀

I believe the reason screens get installed on the inside is to eliminate the rattling.  Also, snow doesn’t build up.

On my vertical opening windows  the 1/2 height outside screen was removed in fall and a storm panel put in place making them triple pane - sort of - upper storm pane, while removable for cleaning, stayed in place all year long
