An Awning window is similar to a Casement window, except the sash opens outward from the bottom of the window with pivot points near the top.
A dual lever latching system releases the left and right side sash latches. Side-mounted glide hinges put the pivot point near the top of the window. A folding operator handle accesses the crank-out mechanism to open and close the sash.
Sash Snubbers are used to prevent sash bowing when the window is closed.
Awning windows feature an interior screen mounting channel for an optional screen to help keep out insects when the sash is open. See Screen Options for information about compatible screen systems.
The jamb depth is 2-9/16”. Jamb extensions increase the jamb depth to 4-9/16” or 6-9/16”. See Jamb Options for more information.

An awning window sash can be opened fully to provide ventilation through the entire window opening. Compare this to a double-hung window, which can only open to expose less than half the entire window opening. This is a nice benefit for those who enjoy letting in the fresh air.
The side-mounted glide hinge assemblies control the opening and pivot hinging of the awning sash. These hinges have some adjustability that allows them to fine-tune the alignment of the sash within the window frame.
Like the casement, awning windows feature an interior-mounted screen option. The interior vinyl has a channel that helps to hold the screen in place when installed. If you like to open your windows to allow in the fresh air, a screen can help keep insects from coming in through the opening.
Our clad vinyl products are designed to have a minimal visual impact on the wall. They are often integrated as part of a Drywall Return finishing system. The 2-9/16” jamb depth works well with this application.
Extensions are also available to fit 4-9/16” and 6-9/16” wall thicknesses.
