Timber Awning Windows

For a unique window addition, awning windows provide an option to a homeowner or business with specific size, space or shape requirements.

Awning Windows

Awning timber windows are hinged along the top and open from the bottom, the bottom panel opens using a winder (to suit fall prevention requirements) or friction stays to provide ventilation.

Superior Ventilation

Awning windows open outward, using a crank mechanism. With this system, you will lock the window in place once it’s at the right position. Held firmly in place, the sash acts as a barrier to redirect the breeze from outside into the room.
The window is fully out of the way of airflow. Since the sash opens outward on the hinges, it opens up the entire frame area to allow optimal airflow in. When fully closed, awning windows are highly energy efficient.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are awning windows dangerous?

No. Awning windows are required to meet specific fall prevention requirements, keeping the window from being damaged or creating a dangerous situation. Our windows are fully compliant with fall prevention requirements, being equipped with a strong friction-based pivot stay and opening and closing exclusively through the crank mechanism.


What’s the difference between an awning window and a casement window?

Both windows are similar, but casement windows often open out from the sides and awning windows generally opening outward from the top. Both window types have hinges on the outside of the frame, they both seal tightly closed, and they both open with similar crank mechanisms.


When are awning windows necessary?

When you need privacy and airflow, such as when designing a bathroom, awning windows are indispensable. Even if not strictly necessary, many people enjoy having awning windows in strategic spots around their homes or commercial properties.
