Awning Windows

Awning windows are one of the two kinds of windows (the other being casement windows) considered the “crank window” type. With awning windows, the crank mechanism is designed to open them outward through a hinge located at the top portion of the window.

The way awning windows are designed favours width more than height, making them perfect for rooms with limited vertical space. There are also awning windows designed in a way that allows them to be fully latched open, thereby providing plenty of ventilation in areas. This makes these types of windows suitable for the kitchen (near the stovetop) or bathroom.

Another plus about awning windows in Perth (or wherever you are located) is that they are relatively more affordable when compared to larger window types. They are also easy to install wherever they are required. There are acrylic, wood, vinyl, fibreglass and aluminium awning windows.

Frequently Asked Questons

Although awning windows come in a range of standard sizes with corresponding prices, the number of windows (or if you need single or double awning windows) and whether you require customisations or add-ons can all impact the total project’s cost.

Since awning windows have plenty of moving parts (e.g., cranks, hinges, levers), these may need repairing or replacement every once in a while. The outer pane also must be cleaned from the outside, except when the top part of the sash can slide down.

Aluminium awnings should be cleaned with special solvents available at hardware stores. Make sure you dilute the solvent according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When removing grime, use special brushes with soft bristles so you don’t scratch the awning surface. Once the grime is gone, clean the surface using a wet sponge.

Ensure you get rid of any solvent residue before letting the awnings dry to prevent oxidation that can be difficult to remove.

Windows, regardless of their style, must meet certain minimum requirements. The minimum width allowed for opening is 20 inches or around 50 centimetres, whilst the minimum height of opening is 24 inches or around 61 centimetres.
