As is seen with casement windows, awning windows have a long history of use in both commercial and residential settings. They are popular in businesses and homes due to their versatility. They improve ventilation without compromising on security and the ability to protect your home from natural elements.
Awning windows have been a popular choice for many homeowners due to their versatility and have been used for many years without necessarily modifying their features. Versions of the window used many years back were kept open by an arm after pushing it out. However, today’s awning windows have a more complex structure and use a hand crank to open and close, in addition to having energy-efficient features.
What Are Awning Windows?
Awning windows are windows with a single sash and rather than being hinged to the side, they are hinged to the top such that when opened, they create an awning-like effect, which is very efficient because even if the homeowner forgets to close the window, the home interiors are still protected from the adverse weather.
They open and close horizontally on a metal track. They are easy to operate which is one of the reasons why the awning windows are much more popular than any other type of window. It is an ideal choice for bathrooms, sinks, and places that are hard to reach such as countertops.
