Awning windows are hinged at the top of the window and open to the outside. They can be left open in the rain and offer full ventilation. Awning windows are usually rectangular or square in design, open with a crank, and work well with a combination of other window styles.
Benefits of Awning Windows
Awning windows offer the following benefits:
Full Ventilation. The awning window's entire sash opens which maximizes airflow.
Can Leave Window Open in the Rain. Since the window opens outward, rain will not enter your home. The crank system at the bottom of the awning window allows you to open it wide or a few inches.
Increases Light Transmission. Unlike a vertical or horizontal sliding window, awning windows have full sashes without bars through the middle which would cut down views to the outside or prevent light from coming in.
Can Be Installed in Space Spaces. Awning windows are often combined with other window types or placed above sliding glass doors. The small size of an awning window makes it perfect for kitchens, bedrooms, showers, bathrooms, and basements.
Reduces Drafts. An awning window's sash compresses against the frame to provide a strong seal.
Provides Shade from the Sun. Awning windows can serve as a canopy window if you choose a style that has internal mini blinds or tinted glass.
