High Quality Awning Windows
Awning windows use hinges and are attached to the window frame. These hinges can be found on the top, giving the window the ability to open outwards. They make use of a cam handle, lever, or crank to open them, which also serves the additional purpose of locking the window. The glass panes of these windows are mostly set in a rabbeted frame and are sealed with glazing compound or beveled putty in an effort to ensure that the glass is secure.
Advantages of Awning Windows
- Maximum Space Efficiency and Ventilation – Usually, these windows open on the outside, so they allow for the use of space right next to the window inside. With the cranking motion that opens these windows they tend to open wide out and as such allow a great amount of ventilation into a room.
- Ideal for Hard to Reach Areas – Since you do not need to be standing next to this window to open it due to the fact that it uses a crank, you can place them in areas that are not fully accessible. They are perfect for placement above wide countertops, in the kitchen above the sink, in bathrooms and in any space where you may have something positioned close to the window.
- Energy-Efficient – Awning windows tend to leak less air because of the type of locking mechanism they use. When cranked shut there is a tighter seal created with the frame and the sash. They also use less glass and will make your home more energy-efficient.
- Variety – These windows come in a variety of sizes, colors and other options to match your home’s décor. You can even get a variety of hardware finishes.
