Awning windows can only open to a limited, fixed degree, making them perfect if you want to leave windows open in light rain.
With a hinge near the top of the frame, awning windows swing out at the bottom to open. They can be partially or fully opened (and closed) by turning a winder.
You can install them above, below, and alongside one another, or next to fixed windows. As such, they’re a versatile option that can enhance virtually any home design.
Sliding windows feature one or more fixed sashes and one or more moving sashes (a “sash” is the glass and framework that holds the glass in place).
As the name suggests, they are opened and closed by sliding the moving sash or sashes left or right.
Sliding windows are perhaps the most common window type found in Australian homes. Their simple, functional design makes them easy to operate. They’re also available in large sizes, making them a good option for improving your home’s ventilation, natural light, and external views.
With their wide-swing openings and aesthetically-appealing appearance, casement windows are a long-time favourite for many people.
Casement windows are hinged either on the left or right side and swing outwards like hinged doors. They may feature one or more sashes within a single window frame.
One key advantage they offer is the ability to control the level of ventilation in your home. By opening them at certain angles, you can funnel soft or strong breezes into your home.
Double hung windows feature two panels, both of which can slide up and down in the frame.
The sashes remain inside the frame, so they don’t protrude when open.
Because double hung windows can be opened from either the top or the bottom, they’re perfect for adjusting the airflow entering your home.
They are sometimes referred to as “sash windows”, but whatever their name, they all work in the same manner.
