What are awning windows?

Traditionally, awning windows are an ‘outside’ window, meaning they are installed in conjunction with other windows and they open out. The hinges for the window are on the top of the frame and the window opens from the bottom. This allows the windows to catch a breeze and channel it to the desired location and it can be open when it rains for ventilation without water leaking in. Awning windows are considered a privacy window and are generally installed on walls that are higher up than other types of windows and they are easy to open and close.
