Awning windows are also used to make operable transoms over casement windows to provide full time ventilation. The awning window provides protection from the elements, therefore it can stay open all the during the night while you close your casement window.

SERIES 6000 AWNING

The main difference between the 6000 Series awning window and the1500 series Awning is the method of operation.

The 6000 series awning uses a friction hinge to manually 'push out' instead of a mechanical winder that the 1500 series uses. Also the 6000  series does not come with insect mesh. These limitations makes the 6000 series a more economical window and is more suited to the homeowner who prefers a simpler style of awning window with less complicated mechanisms.

One of the  advantages of the 6000 series awning  is that it is available in a structural frame, casement/ louver  combination  with the 6000 series louver . A structural window frame is a frame where the individual panels are not 'coupled' or 'mulled' together but all the panels are in one frame.
