An awning window has hinges at the top of the frame, and swings outward from the bottom. They can open with the simple crank of a handle or with the basic glide of the Easy-Slide Operator hardware. Awning windows are great in places that could use extra ventilation and light. Because of the top-hinged design, these windows naturally prevent water from entering while open, even when it’s raining.
Awning windows are versatile to fit many different styles and rooms around the home. They can be installed higher up on a wall to maintain privacy or lower on a wall for easy operation. Awning windows are extremely energy efficient, especially since wind blowing on the outside can create an even tighter seal.
