Awning and casement windows are popular window choices for modern homes due to their versatility, flexibility, and ease of use.
Ideal for New Zealand's ever-changing weather, awning windows push out from the bottom, allowing them to be left partially open in the rain— allowing a degree of rain protection whilst still providing airflow.
Casement windows have a side opening that directs air inwards. We also offer French casements that consist of no centre post which obscures the view when open.
Our range of awning and casement windows are custom designed and manufactured, with options including:
Awning windows are the perfect solution to New Zealand's ever-changing weather— pushing out from the bottom means that they can be partially open in the rain to allow for air ventilation yet still offer a degree of rain protection.
Both awning and casement windows are versatile and can be used in most locations of a home. However, we recommend that they are not to be used where the windows open to pedestrian areas due to their projecting nature.
Our awning and casement windows are designed and manufactured to your home's specifications, customisable to any width and height, and available in a range of colours and finishes.
Our awning and casement windows can also be used in conjunction with other formats, such as sliding and bi-folding windows and doors, as well as fixed windows.
