Awning Windows are rugged, stylish windows that are hinged at the top and open outward to allow ventilation, air flow, and sunlight. They are often used for privacy and security, and in conjunction with large stationary windows. They are proven to increase airflow, which can potentially lower energy bills. Awning Windows ability to open outward allows for a greater range of use. They can come in a wide variety of materials, and perform well when matched against elements such as wind, rain and snow.
Benefits of Awning Windows
Awning windows come with a range of benefits, and can be custom fitted to match exact standards for size and positioning. They are well-built in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, solid windows that provide a level of increased security and range of use. Quality components of our awning windows allow for smooth open and close functionality and minimal cleaning requirements, while the design is optimized to protect your home from the elements of all four seasons. They can also be used in conjunction with larger windows to create a unique design, while full perimeter pressure seals can also help reduce external noise. Additionally, awning windows also offer:
- Weather Tight Seal
- Ability to be placed higher than traditional window installations
- Material Versatility
- Increased air flow
Awning Vs. Hopper Windows
Awning and hopper windows are often compared due to their similar design placement in a home. While both windows can be placed at high or low levels, such as high on a basement wall or low on a first floor, and are efficient at blocking grass, rocks, and other debris when propped open, awning windows open up and out, while hopper windows will open down and in. This provides awning windows with the unique ability to be propped open, even when it’s raining outside.
