Using Hinged Awning Windows

Posted on February 28, 2016 at 12:14 am

A great way to improve the style and function of a room is to use hinged awning windows. Also known as casement windows, awning windows are hinged at the top, allowing for the window frame to move inward or outward. (windows hinged at the bottom are known as hoppers)

They are primarily used singly or in pairs within a common frame, in which case they are hinged on the outside. The windows are opened with a crank, lever or a cam handle, which is placed approximately hand height for the average person. The handle also functions as a window lock, allowing the windows to be securely sealed. Often times, a crank, stay, or friction hinge is necessary when the window opens outward, to hold the window in position despite wind.

Function, style, and security are major strong points of awning windows. You certainly wouldn’t be making a bad choice if you wanted to add awning windows to an existing room.
