FAQS - Awning Windows
What are awning windows?
An awning window is a type of crank window that is hinged at the top and opens outward from the bottom. It is often combined with large stationary windows for a better view. Because of their unique opening mechanism, awning windows allow for ventilation and protection from the rain.
Where to install them?
The awning window is the twin brother of the casement window. The only difference lies in the operational functionalities. For example, while casement windows allow for a full opening of 92 inches, awning don’t allow for that much air circulation.
What’s the difference between awning and casement windows?
Both of these window types are commonly known as “crank” windows because they open using a cranking mechanism. Awning windows are hinged at the top and are made for openings in which the height is smaller than the width. Although both windows are extremely popular choices among Canadian households, there are differences in terms of where they are installed. For example, awning windows are usually installed in kitchens, bathrooms and basements (due to their opening mechanism that prevents water from pouring inside during rain), while casement windows find their applications in areas such as living rooms, bedrooms and dining rooms.
What is a fixed awning window?
A fixed awning window is designed not to open and is often installed alongside other operational windows to allow for a better, unobstructed view.
What are the benefits of awning windows?
Awning windows come with many benefits. Because of their unique shape and design, awning windows can be placed higher in walls, and since they are hinged at the top and open outwards, they provide great protection against rain. They also have a modern, attractive look and look great as standalone windows, or combined with others.
