Awning windows open from the bottom and provide a great view with open ventilation. Awning windows are a great fit for windows above sinks or counters and come in a variety of materials and styles.
What is an Awning Window?
An awning window is a window that opens, in a way, similar to a garage door. The window is hinged at the top of the frame, allowing it to open from the bottom. In general, awning windows have a large viewing area inside the frame and are ideal for letting in a large amount of air flow quite easily.
Similar to a casement window, awning windows are very energy efficient since the hinge-open mechanism allows the window to completely seal and prevent drafts or leakage. Because the window opens inward from the wall, awning windows are generally placed above objects that won’t obstruct the window as it opens, such as sinks and counter tops – making it an ideal window for kitchens and bathrooms.
Awning windows have a locking mechanism that keeps the window from opening from the outside making them very secure.
