These windows are becoming increasingly popular because homeowners can keep them open while enjoying the magnificent views no matter the weather conditions.

What is an awning window?

An awning window opens completely upwards, allowing natural air to flow into your home. They are typically hinged at the top, allowing them to swing open instead of sliding.  They feature a hand crack for closing and opening.

Awning windows are similar to casement windows except for the fact that they are hinged at the top rather than the sides.

Awning windows can be used in places that are difficult to reach. These include installations high up in bathrooms, on top of sinks and in basements where lots of ventilation is required. These windows are commonly used together with windows that cannot be operated e.g. picture windows.

Benefits of Awning Windows


A bigger opening means more air and sunlight passing through and these windows are able to hold sizeable glass panels. Since awning windows are designed to open outward, they allow proper airflow while protecting your house from rain, snow and sleet. This gives you the freedom to leave your windows open regardless of the weather conditions outside. These windows can be installed in any room in your house where you want natural ventilation while preserving the beautiful view of the outdoors.

Increased Security

At Omega Windows, our awning windows can be installed with multi-lock systems, situated on the inside of your window on the right and left sides. The glasses are located on the inside of the windows to increase security while keeping dirt, debris and bugs away from your house.

Since these windows are normally installed high up on the walls, it is hard for anyone to climb through, .You can also install locks, break-in sensors and security bars in your awning replacement windows to further enhance the security of your home.

Clear Views

Awning windows generally do not come with metal bars or rails, so they offer a better view of the outdoors.

Easy to operate

Crack handles are easily operable, so the closing and opening of the windows should be easy, even for young children and the elderly members of the family.

Low Maintenance

These windows are easy to clean. With a 90- degrees opening angle, awning windows can be easily cleaned from both inside and outside.

Increased Insulation
