Features and Benefits of Double Glazing Awning windows
What are double glazed awning windows?
Double glazed Awning windows can come in different frame materials like aluminium, timber or uPVC. We specialize in manufacturing Double glazed windows Perth with uPVC frames. Being the only UPVC profile extruder in the country who also manufacture and fabricate our own window systems locally we are often asked what is the best window assembly. Window designs are entirely region related, for example in Europe Tilt and turn windows are a standard normal whereas in the UK it is awning windows. Whilst double glazing Perth is a relatively new market, we generally feel for Australian designed houses awning windows tend to work the best.
The key difference between and aluminium single glazed awning window and a Canon double glazed uPVC awning window is the difference in the seals, hinges and locking mechanisms. uPVC double glazed awning windows are by far much more superior to its aluminium counterpart. Aluminium windows are based around brush seals, which do not provide a high level of air tightness, uPVC awning windows are based around EPDM dual sealed systems ensuring a total air tightness. Aluminium windows rely on the extrusion pocket to act as a hinge, whereas in uPVC we use specialist heavy duty friction hinges for the window operation due to the weight of the sash and glass. uPVC awning windows also boast of a 3-4 point locking system compared to a single point locking system in aluminium via use of a chain winder.
Awning windows are great for conserving space as they awn outwards and do not take up room inside the house. They also help providing optimum air flow and ventilation and the hardware is capable of adding restrictors to various opening angles to increase level of security. Double glazed awning windows are equipped with a minimum glazed unit size of 28mm and can be increased to a 40mm unit which can be a triple glazed panel.
In terms of pricing, uPVC Awning windows are the most cost effective compared to the rest of the window systems as they are much easier to manufacture as well as very quick to install. Since the hardware is robust and glazing requires only balancing the glass, this type of window system requires little or no maintenance and warranty periods exceed 10 years
Double glazed awning windows can also be fitted with a chain winding system, or a triple lock point cam locking system, therefore it has versatility to provide a system that is more suited to customer choice.
Flyscreen systems are also very customisable with awning windows. We are able to provide retractable flyscreen option to double glazed awning windows, which means the only time the flyscreen is pulled down is when the window is open, this increases the longevity of the flyscreen as it is not exposed to the weather 24×7. It also gives a more elegant view of the windows and glass unlike a fixed flyscreen which is unsightly and blocks clear views through the window. Due to the versatility of awning windows fixed flyscreens are also possible.
