    Awning windows open outwards to allow light and fresh air into your home. They are often used in combination with larger, aesthetic windows, such as casement windows to compliment their functional dominance. Awning windows contain a hinge at the top of the window so that the window can open from the bottom, improving ventilation and providing protection from the rain. With a robust, strong window frame, NorthShield’s awning windows prevent leaks and air infiltration with flexible, dedicated seals and insulation. Stay dry and comfortable while enjoying the fresh air with awning windows from NorthShield!

    Benefits of Awning Windows

    Awning windows are a great option for homeowners looking to add extra ventilation and light to their homes. These windows are designed with angled glass panels that swing open from the bottom, which even allow you to enjoy the breeze and the sunlight, even if it’s raining!


    Questions About 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 shares many similarities with the casement window. The main difference lies in the operational functionalities. For example, while casement windows allow for a full opening of 92 inches, awning windows have smaller openings that don’t allow for as 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 are placed 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.

    Increase Natural Sunlight

    Awning or crank windows offer excellent views and an abundance of natural light. Because these types of windows are more compact and open outward, they can be placed almost anywhere in your home, as they will not interrupt your existing setup (ie; furniture). They can also be placed higher on your walls to catch uninterrupted sunlight.

    In addition to providing increased airflow through your home, these types of shaded windows can also be used to control airflow. The structure of this window allows for air to flow in while limiting the amount of air that exits, for quicker and more effective air circulation.

    Improve Energy Efficiency

    Since awning and crank windows are usually placed on exterior walls and away from direct sunlight, they don’t often need to be shaded or tinted like other windows in your home. This means that you shouldn’t have any additional costs associated with keeping cool air inside during warm months, as well as preventing heat loss during the winter season.
