When a customer comes to me with security concerns, I often recommend an Awning Window. An awning window has minimal entry space which makes it almost impossible for an intruder to gain access to your home through them.
Awning windows have hinges on the top and open outward, which means that they need enough exterior space to open properly, which isn’t usually a problem for most home, condo or apartment owners.
Awning windows are most often used in basements, lofts, garages and other areas of the home which are infrequently used. These areas are prime targets for intruders, who want to gain access to a home without being noticed. When you use awning windows in these areas you don’t need to worry about checking the security of these spaces after being gone from your home for extended periods of time. They’re simply too difficult for an intruder to access.
If you’re looking to add some extra ventilation to a room, then an awning window is a good choice. Not only do these windows perform well in terms of energy efficiency and maximizing natural light, they can also let in a nice breeze and welcome fresh air, which is why they’re perfect for bathrooms and other small spaces. I always highly recommend contacting the experts at Thermo-Bilt for information about their wide selection of awning windows.
