Benefits of an Awning Window
An awning window provides the following benefits:
Offers full ventilation. The entire sash of an awning window opens from the top to maximize airflow.
Privacy - since the awning window opens from the top, with obscure glass you can get air in a bathroom, while maintaining privacy.
Can be left open in the rain. Because an awning window opens outward, it prevents rain from entering. A crank at the bottom of the window allows it to be opened wide or only a few inches.
Increases light transmission. Unlike a horizontal or vertical sliding window, an awning window has a full sash without any bars through the middle to cut down light or views to the outside.
Works well in small spaces. A small awning window can be combined with other windows or placed above a sliding glass door. The smaller size of an awning window makes it perfect for use in bedrooms, dormers, kitchens, basements, showers and baths.
Reduces air and drafts. The sash compresses against the frame to provide a better seal than a sliding window.
Can provide shading from the sun. If you opt for tinted glass or internal blinds, an awning window can actually serve as a canopy window.
