What are Awning Windows?
Awning windows are tailor-made for New Zealand’s changeable weather – they push out from the bottom and thus can be left open and still provide some rain protection. They can be used in most positions but are not recommended where windows open on to a deck or walkway due to their projecting nature.
What are Casement Windows?
Casement windows are side opening to catch the breeze and direct air inwards. Like awning windows they can be used in most positions but are not recommended where windows open on to pedestrian areas. French casements can be provided with no centre post to obscure the view when open.
Advantages of Awning & Casement Windows
Awnings and casements are perfect for exterior walls which are exposed to weather and can benefit from additional security. They can be opened partly during the rain and are great for creating panels of floor to ceiling glass and can include passive ventilation.
Framing & Glazing Options
Awning & casement windows come in either standard aluminium framing, or ThermalHEART framing which is thermally separated for additional insulation. Framing with passive ventilation is also available with some frames, which provides ventilation even when the window remains closed, so please enquire for more info.
There are a number of glazing options for awning & casement windows, including glazing with a low cost single glaze, double glazing or low-e glass for increased insulation.
Colours & Finishes Available
The aluminium framing for awnings and casement windows can be anodised or custom painted in a range of colours to match your exterior décor. Find out more about colour options here.
