These windows are a favourite configuration for Kiwi homes and are commonly seen in many different rooms. This versatile style—our most popular—works in a variety of situations.
Awning windows are hinged at the top of the frame and open outwards. The hinges on our specific uPVC product are friction hinges. This means that the windows will stay put at the angle you push them to and not fall back down when released. They open fully with a gentle push.
Our awning windows open to approximately 70 degrees. However, it is possible to lock the frame to open to a gap of 10mm (or 100mm with optional restrictor stays) to allow airflow while retaining safety and security for the occupants of the building.
When closed, the uPVC awning windows are 100% airtight due to a double rubber seal. They are also very secure. Each window frame comes with a multi-point locking system, with at least two points of locking on each unit—the number of points depends on the size of the window ordered.
With its classic and versatile design and comprehensive safety features, it’s no wonder that the awning window is one of our most popular products. Get in touch with us to find out more.
