Both stylish and practical, awning windows stand up to a range of weather conditions and look great while doing so.
Locals know that Canberra nights (particularly in winter) can be freezing. However, Canberra also experienced the hottest summer daytime temperatures on record in recent year, so it’s important to have a house that caters for all seasons.
That’s why a double-glazed awning window is the perfect fit for the changeable Canberra climate, as it can open up to provide air-flow when it’s warm a and seal in heat in the evening or during cold snaps.
All awning windows from New World Windows are fitted with compression seals, making them water tight when closed. The locking system provides security and protection against the elements.
A variation on the casement (hinged) window, awning windows are popular in European countries that experience cold winters and warm summers for this very reason. As they open outwards, they are also perfect for keeping out the rain while allowing fresh air into your home.
Awning windows can make a romantic statement when sitting above a desk or reading nook in your home’s second or third floor, particularly for houses with great views. It’s also possible for them to blend into the background, sitting unobtrusively around larger windows or doors in your house.
A versatile style that looks great in homes with a ‘modern’ aesthetic as well as traditional houses, awning windows are what you make them. If you’re considering awning windows but don’t think the style will work with your particular home’s layout, keep in mind that here at New World Windows, we are also fully licensed and insured to build.
