Awning style windows are hinged at the top and swing outward from the bottom to let air in. Their small size gives you greater versatility in your window placement — high on the wall, above or below another window, or atop a door. Awning windows can be used in multiples or in combinations with other windows to add character to your home.
Commonly known as: top hung windows, top hinged windows, crank out windows, retractable windows
< Back to All Windows
Awning windows open outward with a crank operation. They are hinged from the top rather than the side like casement windows. Because of the way they open, awning windows are a great choice for letting air flow in. They are also a great option to let in natural light and ventilation while maintaining privacy — especially when installed higher on the wall.
These windows are commonly used in combination with other windows to add visual variety and ventilation above or below a stationary window. They also work nicely in areas that are hard to reach like above a kitchen sink, or even above a door as an operable alternative to a transom window. Awning windows are great for rooms that require privacy — like a bedroom or bathroom — but you still want to add natural light to the room.
