The new versions are technologically and environmentally advanced, and the aluminum awning windows serve many design and construction purposes, not the least of which involves keeping them in the design focus of their previous era.
Features of Aluminum Awning Windows
Today's aluminum awning windows have features that were only dreamed about in the 1950s. For starters, aluminum is not what it used to be. It doesn't salt-stain or pit like it once did, and with the use of advanced coatings, it comes in a palette of colors far beyond the standard grey/silver that aluminum used to offer as its limited choice. It is light weight, and yet remains strong, and with the new coatings, its even more durable.
Aluminum awning windows came in a range of style and colors that are suitable for new construction and a unique color palette, or that suit a retrofit in keeping with the 1950s era, or a futuristic image. Manufacturers are even able to color the exterior of the window's casing in a different color to the interior, so it matches any design application.
Lockable, secure, flexible and practical, aluminum awning windows come in standard and custom sizes, offer a range of style and colors in their decorative operating hardware, and come with interior screens designed to be nearly invisible and to keep the tiniest of insects out. They are virtually maintenance free, provide excellent ventilation and wind control, and are ideal for spots where windows are hard to reach and operate (because the controls are at the bottom, not the top or sides). For example, they are ideal over a kitchen sink where the control is within hand reach of the operator, even if he or she must lean over a counter top or sink.
Specially treated glass that makes rainwater bead up and wipe clean with ease helps the awning windows stay clear and clean, and a pleasure to look through to a beautiful view.
