A versatile option, our awning windows have a hinge on top, which allows them to open outward from the bottom. Awning windows are often used in conjunction with large stationary windows, and for this reason, they have the reputation of being a durable window with unlimited architectural possibilities. Commonly used in basements, kitchens, and bathrooms awning windows can be situated side by side or in a series. Due to the hinged top and outward opening functionality, awning windows prevent outside elements and the harshest weather from entering the home while open. These types of windows can also be situated up high, and the operator can easily open and close the window with the turn of a handle. Due to the window closing flush against the frame, awning windows have the same energy efficient properties as casement windows. They are ideal for hard to reach places and areas requiring regular ventilation.
