What is a Awning Window?
An awning window is a type of window that is hinged at the top and swings outward from the bottom. It is typically mounted above the door or other window and has a crank handle that allows you to open and close it. Awning windows are designed to provide ventilation while keeping out the rain and providing some shade. They are often used in areas where space is limited, such as in basements or above doors, and are a popular choice for bathrooms and kitchens. Awning windows are also a good option for areas that are difficult to reach, as they can be easily opened and closed from the inside.
What are the benefits of Awning Window?
There are several benefits to using awning windows:
Ventilation: Awning windows provide excellent ventilation because they can be opened fully without taking up any indoor space. This makes them a good choice for small rooms or areas with limited floor space.
Energy efficiency: Awning windows can help to improve the energy efficiency of a home by reducing the amount of heat loss or gain through the windows. They can also help to reduce drafts and keep the home more comfortable.
Protection from the elements: Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward, which helps to keep rain and other elements out. This makes them a good choice for areas that are prone to moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
Increased security: Awning windows are more secure than windows that open inward, as they are more difficult to force open from the outside.
Easy to use: Awning windows are easy to open and close, even for people with mobility issues. They typically have a crank handle that allows you to easily control the opening and closing of the window.
Glass options for an awning window:
A double pane window is a type of window that is composed of two panes of glass separated by a space, or "air gap." The air gap between the panes of glass is sealed and can be filled with air or an inert gas, such as argon or krypton. Double pane windows are a popular choice for residential and commercial buildings because they provide several benefits over single pane windows.
A triple pane window is a type of window that is composed of three panes of glass separated by two spaces, or "air gaps." The air gaps between the panes of glass are sealed and can be filled with air or an inert gas, such as argon or krypton. Triple pane windows are a popular choice for residential and commercial buildings because they provide even better insulation and energy efficiency than double pane windows.
(low-e) glass is a type of window glass that has a thin, transparent coating applied to one or both sides of the glass. The coating is designed to reflect heat and reduce the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that passes through the glass.
Argon gas is used as a filling in energy efficient windows. It is an inert gas that is used to reduce heat transfer between the inside and outside of a building. Because argon is denser than air, it is able to reduce the amount of heat that is lost through a window by limiting the movement of air in the space between the window panes. This can help to keep a building warm in the winter and cool in the summer, which can save energy and reduce heating and cooling costs. In addition to its insulating properties, argon gas is also a poor conductor of electricity, so it can help to reduce the amount of electrical conductivity in a window.
