Doors/floor length windows for Dormer - best type?

Hi all
We are having our loft converted and wondered which windows/doors to go for in dormer. We had planned double doors and juliet balcony but one builder said these would leak water and recommended against. There is also a safety issue with children.

I have heard that you can buy full length windows which look like doors, ie they're fixed at the bottom but open at the top, which sounds like a good, safe alternative. Can anyone advise where we can get these?

Any advice appreciated. Thanks in advance.
