WHAT IS AN AWNING WINDOW?
Awning windows, or hopper windows, are a type of crank window that opens by turning a crank, which moves roto-gear arms outward to open the window.
Awning windows typically come wider than they’re tall and fit into spaces higher up on walls. A bathroom awning window often provides additional ventilation.

Low E3 rejects solar heat while letting light in, resulting in increased performance in climates with intense sun exposure.

Selected: Low E1
Decorative glass options are ideal for spaces like bathrooms to balance natural light and privacy.
We offer specialty glass to best suit the needs of your home. You can choose tempered glass, laminated glass, and STC/OITC glass for specific windows and rooms.
Tempered glass increases glass strength to help prevent breakage. Tempered glass is ideal for windows close to the floor or located in high-traffic areas.
Even more durable than tempered glass, laminated glass is often referred to as impact resistant or safety glass due to its vinyl inter layer that tends to remain in place when shattered.
Sound Transmission Class and Outdoor-Indoor Transmission Class glass has increased pane thickness on the room side and works in areas where exterior noise is a concern.
We offer various divided lite patterns so you can replicate the look of your original windows and doors. Or, add new architectural interest to your home. Choose from Simulated Divided Lites for classic appeal or Grilles-Between-the Glass for easy cleaning. Casement windows can come with a Simulated Checkrail to create the look of a Double Hung window with the functionality of a Casement.
Patterns include: Cottage One-High, Prairie Four-Lite, Simulated Checkrail, Prairie Six-Lite, Prairie Nine-Lite and Standard Rectangular.
Selected: Cottage One-High

Roto-gears on Awning windows require lubrication once a year. Apply white lithium grease to the roto-gears. Use a silicone-based spray to lubricate hinge joints and the locking mechanism occasionally. Be sure to clean off any dirt, debris, or sand before lubrication.
CAUTION: Excessive lubrication can damage the window finish. Avoid getting oil and solvents on your finish and remove any excess immediately.
Sash tracks should get cleaned occasionally with a soft bristle brush.

Frequently Asked Questions
Awning vs. casement windows
Both awning and casement windows operate with a crank and swing outward. Awning windows are wider than they are tall while casement windows are taller than they are wide. Awning windows have a hinge at the top of the window so it opens outward vertically. A casement window has a hinge on the side and opens outward horizontally.
Both casement and awning windows can provide more uninterrupted views because they don’t have a check rail like a single hung and double hung windows, or a slider window. They also provide excellent ventilation and can allow stagnant air to exit while inviting cool air in.
Are awning windows secure?
Our Awning windows feature a multi-point locking system to securely keep your windows close while protecting your home from unwanted air and water infiltration.
Awning window benefits
Awning windows can fit into hard-to-reach spaces because the crank extends out, making it easier to open and close windows. They can also get installed above doors or larger windows to improve ventilation, add natural light, and provide bigger views.
Awning windows also have the benefit of opening outward from a top hinge to allow a breeze in and because they open from the bottom it may be possible to keep them open in wet weather to allow that fresh smell of rain waft into your home.
Are awning windows good for ventilation?
Awning windows make an excellent choice for adding ventilation to a home. Many homes feature a bathroom awning window for ventilation. They have the versatility of pairing with other windows and fitting into hard-to-reach places. Awning windows also work well in higher places on walls to help with ventilation.
Marvin Replacement windows and patio doors come with a limited lifetime warranty as well as a 5-year installation warranty to provide additional peace of mind.
