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.
