What is an Awning Window?
Awning windows are hinged at the top of the frame and open up with a crank handle, swinging the bottom of the window out. These windows are often wider than they are tall and allow for a nice breeze to enter the home while letting the hot air flow out of a room. If you enjoy having the window open during a light rain these are the windows to go with. Since awning windows open at the bottom, they will naturally shed the rain as it falls, unlike other types of opening windows.
Benefits of Enerlux Fiberglass Awning Windows
Virtually no air and water infiltration
- Pultruded fiberglass frame and sash with corners that are silicone sealed and chemically bonded together utilizing our proprietary Super Strength Corner (S2C) System. Allowing for no air or water to enter through the window at the corners, a vulnerable place on windows.
- Triple weather-stripping and multi-point locking system allows our fiberglass awning window to be closed tightly providing an air-tight and water-tight perimeter.
Upgraded for efficiency and durability
- More Space for Argon: 1” insulated glass unit for double pane and 1 3/8” IG unit for triple pane allowing more space between panes to be filled with Argon or Krypton gas.
- Thicker Glass: Minimum 3.99 mm glass thickness which gives the window more sound proofing characteristics and increased energy efficiency.
- Frame Strength: Our fiberglass awning windows can be built 30% larger than other material awning windows due to fiberglass being 8 times stronger than vinyl and twice as strong as aluminum. This is also possible due to our Super Strength Corner System and worldwide leading Roto hardware.
- Foam Filled Frames: Improve the energy efficiency and quietness of the window.
- FlexScreen with BetterVue mesh: comes standard on all fiberglass awning windows to provide a seamless transition between the window and the screen with no visible frame.
- 2” Profile: Our awning, casement, and fixed casement profiles appear 100% symmetrical with a 2” profile and the fixed casement uses a wool pile weatherstrip on the exterior of the frame.
