Why we love awning windows

Openings that protect from rain

We love awning windows because their tilt opening towards the bottom protects the interior of your home from rain, even when the window is open. That way, you can air out your home on hot, humid days even if you aren't home, without having to worry about storms.

Blend well with other models

Awning windows can be combined with other models: The dual casement/awning window is very interesting to give an original touch and extra style to your home. You also benefit from the best of both windows, including the 90° opening of casement windows.

Strong locks for your safety

This model is one of our safest with its single point, strong and durable locks manufactured with two stainless steel latches. Awning windows are themselves an effective barrier for criminals who would like to break and enter your home.

Highly durable stainless steel hardware

As an option, you may request stainless steel hardware for your awning windows: guaranteed strength and durability that won't rust!

Vaillancourt energy efficient glass (double or triple)

Our energy efficient glass is equipped with a microscopic metallic film. In addition, an inert gas (argon) is added between the glass panels to preserve interior heat in winter and coolness in summer.

More than just helping relieve condensation issues, energy efficient glass offers unmatched performance and substantial savings.

Standard characteristics

Tilt opening towards the exterior

The tilt opening system allows for bottom opening towards the outside. Though the window can never be completely open, it still offers excellent ventilation with an opening that is wider than it is high and also offers protection from the rain.

Scissor-action lever operator (crank)

The scissor-action lever crank is designed for easy, effortless window opening.

Single-point end locks

Made with two stainless steel latches, the single point end locks offer strength and superior durability for your added security.

Strong screen

Screens offer a simple mounting system that is easy to clean. Manufactured in fiber glass, they are strong and tight. Screen frames are made of enamelled aluminium.

1 U factor – W/m2-K (Btu/h ft2-F): Indicates the rate of a material's transfer of heat. The lower the U factor, the higher the window's performance.

2 Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC): Indicates the solar energy that can pass through the window. The higher the coefficient, the higher the window's performance.

3 ER factor: Indicates a window's global energy efficiency. The higher the ER factor, the higher the window's performance.

R factor: Indicates the degree of resistance in a material's temperature transfer. The higher the R factor, the higher the window's performance.
