Awning, casement, and push out windows are all outward opening windows with excellent flexibility to facilitate the natural ventilation while still complementing the aesthetic of your home. All three window styles provide a perfect opening to outside views, are simple to operate, and will undoubtedly enhance the beauty of your home.
Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward from the bottom by using a winder. These sturdy yet attractive windows allow for good ventilation while offering excellent protection from the weather elements. When they are open for ventilation, awning windows can still protect your home from rain — and when they are closed, using the side locks, they provide a secure barrier against water, dust, high wind and any potential intruders. Awning windows are often placed higher on the wall or can be located over furniture or benches still allowing access to operate the window, making them ideal for bathroom or kitchens.
Casement windows are hinged at the sides and provide full (top and bottom) ventilation by opening outwards. In fact, together with the tilt and turn windows they probably offer more ventilation than any other type of window. Casement windows are fully adjustable by using a winder that swings the window sash open to the left or to the right. When fully opened, casement windows offer good unobstructed views and ventilation — and when they are closed, using the side locks, they provide a secure protection against water, dust, high wind and any potential intruders.
Push out windows can be either awning or casement windows as they open outwards, but differ in the way they are operated, using a lever / handle instead of a winder. Because they use friction stays instead of specifically designed fixed pin butt hinges, push out windows have a cleaner look and are easy to operate. However, they share the same benefits of awning and casement windows, including good unobstructed views and ventilation.
All three types of windows — awning, casement, and push out — are perfect for Melbourne, VIC, Canberra, ACT and NSW areas. You’ll find that they are available with frames in several attractive colours to further enhance the beauty of your home. When choosing your double-glazed uPVC windows, just ask our highly professional and knowledgeable staff about the accessories and flyscreens available that will allow you to maximise the benefits beyond just the additional functionality they provide.
