Awning windows have been around for a while but thanks to the use of new materials such as vinyl and design innovations, they are increasingly being deployed on modern buildings. They can be easily distinguished from other varieties because they open from the bottom with a hinge in the middle or toward the top. They swing open to form a 45 degree angle with the window frame, although some models offer an extended field of motion.
One of the primary benefits comes from improved ventilation. Because awnings open wider at the base than at the top, they can be placed higher on walls without preventing their operation, improving air flow as well as privacy and natural lighting.
Due to their design, this type windows, is recommended for damp climates. This is due to not only to increased ventilation when compared with tradition varieties but also better protection against any water seeping through the cracks. They also make a great fit for basement windows, and can be left open even when it’s raining.
Finally, awnings are being deployed on many new structures because of the clean modern look. Additionally, because they often have a positive effect on climate control and energy consumption, green builders or homeowners concerned are increasingly utilizing these designs in an attempt to improve overall environmental performance.
