Awning Windows Buyer Guides
What are awning windows?
Awning windows are top-hinged windows that swing out from the bottom. They are traditionally wider than they are tall, and operate with a crank handle like a casement window. Awning windows are often installed higher up on a wall, making them great options for bedrooms and bathrooms by letting in light and ventilation without sacrificing privacy or security. Add awning windows above your casement, double-hung, or picture windows to create more architectural interest and a brighter, airier home.

Awning Window vs. Basement Hopper Window
What’s the difference between an awning window and a basement hopper window? While both of these window types are hinged on the horizontal edge, awning windows are hinged at the top with the opening at the bottom, and basement hopper windows are hinged at the bottom and open at the top. As their name says, basement hopper windows are designed specifically for basements and are generally smaller in size than awning windows. Neither awning nor basement hopper windows are designed for egress in case of emergency, but both are able to let light and ventilation into your home.
Awning Window vs. Casement Window
What’s the difference between an awning and a casement window? Awning and casement windows share some of the same features, such as crank-out operation and multi-point locking systems, but there are easy ways to tell them apart. Casement windows are taller than they are wide, and are designed to swing outward from the vertical left or right edge. Awning windows, however, are wider than they are tall, and are hinged at the top to swing out from the bottom. Additionally, Performax54 casement windows have unique operation that allows them to be cleaned easily from inside the house.
