How Far Do uPVC Awning Windows Open?

When considering the opening angle for awning windows, two factors should be taken into account. Firstly, it is important to ensure good ventilation while avoiding any safety risks. This means that the vertical distance between the lower edge of the window and the ground should be at least 110 cm to prevent children or pets from climbing out. Additionally, during extreme weather conditions, the opening angle should be reduced to prevent the window from being damaged by strong wind.


Secondly, anti-theft performance is another important consideration. While aluminium awning windows have strong wind resistance, the opening angle should be kept in check to improve the window’s anti-theft ability. It is recommended to keep the lower edge of the window at least 50 cm away from the ground and limit the window’s opening angle to 30 degrees.


The awning window should generally be opened between 30 and 45 degrees. However, in public places such as large shopping malls, the angle may be increased up to 60 degrees. For personal use at home, the angle should be kept at around 30 degrees. It is important not to open the window more than 90 degrees to ensure safety.

We recommend our gas strut windows if you need an awning window that can open up to 90 degrees.

UPVC Awning Windows

Understanding UPVC Awning Windows

UPVC awning windows are a type of window that open outwards and are hinged at the top. They are a popular choice for homeowners who want to improve ventilation and increase the amount of natural light that enters their homes. These windows are commonly used in rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens where there is a concern for moisture, as they allow fresh air to enter while keeping the rain out and providing privacy.


Depending on the upvc awning windows hardware installed, they may open with a roto-gear and crank or with a simple push-out lever. UPVC awning windows are not only great for ventilation, they also allow a lot of natural light into the room, which makes the space feel more spacious and bright. This can help minimize the need for artificial lighting, which can save energy and money on monthly power bills.


In addition to being easy to operate, UPVC awning windows are easy to clean due to their hinged construction. Many awning windows also come with built-in screens that keep insects out while allowing air to circulate freely. It is common practice to mix awning windows with other types of windows, such as fixed or casement windows, to create a unified and practical architectural style.


If you want large glass surfaces without the mullions typically seen on double- or triple-casement windows, awning windows are a great option. They are also very energy efficient since they provide ventilation without letting in cold air. By opening from the bottom and allowing warm air to escape from the top, they help regulate the temperature inside the house and reduce the amount of energy needed to maintain a comfortable temperature.

The gas strut window is an aluminum window that opens to 90 degrees, unlike standard awning windows.
