Awning Window Benefits

Awning windows swing outward, with one sash hinged at the top. Awning windows are often placed above or below other windows and doors for additional ventilation. They open and close with the turn of a handle located on the bottom of the window frame.

Natural Light: Awning windows let in natural light, which can brighten up the space around the door. This can be particularly useful if the door leads to a dark hallway or entryway.

Ventilation: Awning windows can be opened to allow for ventilation without compromising security or privacy. Since they typically open outward from the bottom, they create a barrier that prevents rain from entering while still allowing fresh air to flow into the room.

Aesthetic Appeal: Awning windows can add visual interest to the exterior of a building, especially when they are placed above doors. They can break up the monotony of a large blank wall and provide architectural detail.

Privacy: Placing windows above doors can offer privacy while still allowing natural light to enter. Since these windows are usually positioned higher up, they can prevent people from seeing directly into the interior of the space.
