Awning windows are hinged at the top swing open from the bottom with a crank or by manually pushing the sash. Locking hardware is located at the bottom for easy operation. Awning windows are generally wider than they are tall. They work well as a stand-alone window or when used as design option to accentuate picture or casement windows. Awning windows can be installed near the ceiling to allow warm air to escape. When installed higher from the floor, extender poles are available to turn the crank opening mechanism. These versatile windows can be opened when raining for fresh air.
Push Out. This design offers easy operation and narrow profiles for maximum views. Push out awning windows open easily by simply turning the handle and pushing the sash open.
Crank Open. A handle turns clockwise or counterclockwise to open and close the window. This design option can be placed high off the floor, unlike the push out awning, because an extender pole can hook onto the handle to operate the window when it is out of reach.
Oversized. For truly inspiring views out your window coupled with a fresh breeze to cool your home, Awning windows are available in sizes up to 8 feet wide or 8 feet tall.
