What is an awning window?
An awning window is a type of window with a hing at the top and outward opening, typically with the help of a crank or lever mechanism. The window is designed to tilt outwards from the bottom, creating an awning-like effect that provides ventilation while keeping rainwater out.
Awning windows are popular in areas with frequent rainfall, as they can be left open during light rain without water entering the interior of the room. They are often used in basements, bathrooms and other areas where privacy and ventilation are important.
One of the advantages of awning windows is that they can be left open even during inclement weather, providing ventilation and fresh air to a room without compromising its interior. They are also energy efficient, as their design allows for improved insulation and reduced air leakage.
Awning windows are available in a variety of materials, including wood, vinyl, aluminum and fiberglass, and can be customized to fit the style and design of your home.
