Awning Windows

Awning windows are a fantastic choice for both residential and commercial properties and are more affordable when compared to other types of windows. 

Aluminium Awning Windows:
versatile and budget friendly

Awning windows are well-designed for our ever-changing Auckland weather. A versatile, stylish window, they provide a great world view without sacrificing security or privacy.

Awning Window Benefits

Good airflow

Unlike sliding windows, which open horizontally, awning windows pivot from the top. The outward-opening sash is hinged at the top and swings outward. You can adjust the angle of the window to control the amount of airflow, keeping your home or commercial premises well-ventilated and comfortable year-round.

Rain barrier

When opened, awning windows create a barrier against rain, allowing fresh air to flow into your home while keeping the elements out.

Creating privacy

If privacy is a concern, then awning windows are a great choice. Because you unlock and open from the bottom, awning windows can be placed higher on walls than many other types of windows. This means you can enjoy light and ventilation without compromising on privacy. 

Better security

Aluminium awning windows can provide an extra layer of protection. Many models feature multi-point locking systems that ensure maximum safety by locking not just one point but several points on the frame. As well as more security, this can prevent any unwanted falls or runaway pets. 

But let the light in

Placing them high on a wall is also useful for capturing natural light. They allow light to enter the room from a higher angle and fill it more evenly than other types of windows.

Versatility for your home

The windows are particularly good in kitchens and bathrooms where you need steady ventilation. However, we don’t recommend them for walkways due to their projecting nature. They need enough exterior space so they can open outward completely.

Why choose Rylock awning windows?

Rylock aluminium awning windows are built with energy efficiency in mind. Their tight seal helps prevent drafts, making your home, workplace or business more comfortable year-round. They have a sleek and modern appearance and are available in a range of finishes and configurations, including the ALTI™ combined aluminium and timber window system: aluminium on the outside and gorgeous wood on the inside.

Constructed from high-quality durable frames and reliable hardware, Rylock awning windows are built to last and require minimal maintenance.

What is the difference between casement windows and awning windows?

Our other Rylock hinged window option is casement windows. These open and close in a similar manner to a standard door: the hinge sits on the side of the window frame, allowing it to swing open to either the left or right. Casement windows are normally greater in height than width so work best in tall or narrow openings, such as living room areas or bathrooms.
