Awning Windows

Awning windows exemplify simplicity and high-quality performance and can enhance a remodeling or replacement project on their own or as a complement to casement or picture windows. Due to their simplicity, they are ideal for over sinks, kitchen counters, and other hard-to-reach locations. Awning windows swing out from the bottom and feature push-out or crank-out styles. These windows are operated with locking hardware that is located near the window sill. At AVI Windows & Doors, we offer this style of window in sizes up to 8 feet wide or up to 8 feet high for stunning views and maximum flexibility.

Features of Awning Windows
  • Easy-to-reach hardware for operation

  • Provides good ventilation without letting debris inside
  • Offers a versatile and contemporary look

Types of Awning Windows

Push-Out 

Push-out awning windows are easy to operate and have narrow profiles for a clean aesthetic and maximum glass views. A concealed lock status sensor option is available with push-out awning windows.

Crank-Out

Crank-out windows are operated with a lever that turns clockwise to open and counter-clockwise to close. The insert replacement option is available with this window type. Extender poles are available if the window is high and cannot be reached. The pole hooks onto the hardware and can be turned to operate the window.

Grid Options for Awning Windows

Authentic Divided Lite

This is a traditional style of window grid that has been made more efficient and popular with modern window technology. It features separate pieces of glass that are placed between dividing bars.

Simulated divided lite (SDL)
Simulated Divided Lite (SDL)

This is a popular grid option for awning windows because it is affordable, energy-efficient, and creates the look of individual panes of glass. It features bars on both sides of the glass.

Grilles-Between-the-Glass
Grilles-Between-the-Glass

Awning windows can achieve the appearance of a divided lite pattern with grilles between the two panes of glass. It is easy to clean these types of windows and maintain them over time.

Awning Window Screens

For awning windows, you can choose between fixed or retractable interior screens to provide protection and encourage greater window usage. Interior screens for awning windows are available with a paintable, stainable wood interior surround, or aluminum surround in a variety of colors.

Tempered Glass

Tempered Glass is often used in bathrooms for safety reasons. The panels are heated and then cooled rapidly in a controlled environment, making the glass several times stronger than regular glass.

Tempered Glass is ideal for use over bathtubs and in showers where if glass were to shatter, it will break into small pieces so as not to harm any occupants. Tempered glass is used in cars for the same reason.
