An awning window is a type of hinged window that has a variety of uses. Historically, awning windows were installed in school classrooms and factories to provide circulation into the building. Despite its industrial use, it hand many uses in a standard home as well. It is unique, economical, and can come in a wide array of shapes and designs. They are able to be opened from the bottom by use of a lever or a handle, and pushed outward to allow for ventilation. This feature makes it perfect for areas such as above a counter or kitchen sink, or even used in conjunction with other windows. The ability for it to open using a single window and hinge design makes it more efficient than a standard sliding window, since those need two panes of glass and can only open to half of the area of the window. An awning can also be open in all kinds of weather, since it is angled downward to deflect wind, rain, and snow. Being mainly used for ventilation, this feature makes it so it can be open at all times. A screen can also be fitted on the inside of the window to provide pest control. Additionally, since the screen is on the inside the screen itself does not get too dirty, nor does it ruin the outside appeal of the window. When compared to other standard windows, the awning does have its advantages and disadvantages.

  2. Can be opened in all weather due to its design. It can be partially opened and the interior can remain dry.
  3. Easy to open and accessible from the bottom, allowing it to me placed in either high or low places.
  4. Easy to clean from the inside, as there is only a single pane of glass.
