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.
