What Are Awning Windows?
Traditionally, awning windows are an ‘outside’ window, meaning they are installed in conjunction with other windows and they open out. The hinges for the window are on the top of the frame and the window opens from the bottom. This allows the windows to catch a breeze and channel it to the desired location. The awning window can open when it rains for ventilation without the risk of water leaking in. Awning windows are considered a privacy window and are generally installed on walls that are higher up than other types of windows.

The crank mechanism allows the windows to close tightly to the sash and they are more energy-efficient than slider-style windows in preventing warm and cool air leakage.

The awnings window is practical for residential or commercial applications and can be easily installed to your convenience.
Awning windows come with some distinct advantages for a homeowner that can’t be ignored when you are purchasing new windows for your home. The first advantage is weatherproofing, the elements are ensured to stay outside. They rainwater is kept out when the window opens as they are opened from the top and can direct airflow, increasing ventilation. Another great advantage is the simplicity of installing the window; awning windows are among the easiest style of window to install, saving you the headache of a messy installation.
Typically, awning windows are smaller in size than most windows and they can be a great insurer of privacy for your home. Our AM Designer Series offers larger standard sizes due to the use of heavy-duty Roto Hardware and two corner drives. Installed higher on a wall, they don’t compromise privacy or safety while providing a great deal of natural light and airflow. Awning windows make for great additions in bedrooms, bathrooms or kitchens, positioned over sinks or counters.
