It may happen that the objects that are lying in your place like beds, desks or cupboards will make it a little difficult for you to reach the lower window, but the top controls of centre-pivot will let you install it on the much lower part of your roof as compared to the top hung windows. If you have rooms with low-ceilings or if the accessibility is limited in your room, then you must go for these windows. Even you can clean them very easily because of the central pivotal design. You can also rotate this window at an angle of 180°, thus you can reach the outside part of the window, staying inside the roof.
The next is Velux Top Hung Windows

The pivotal point is placed at the top.

You can place the top hung windows at mid-level or higher position on the roof, while the centre-pivot only suits the low level positioning in the roof.
