What Are The Different Types Of Vinyl Windows?
(1) Casement & Awning Vinyl Windows
Casement windows are hinged on the sides and open outward to the left or right. They are commonly referred to as crank windows because they are opened by the crank mechanism. The awning windows are very similar in style, but the top is hinged. Both can be easily slid to open and close by twisting the easy-to-reach handle.
(2) Egress Vinyl Windows
Evacuation windows are basically emergency exit windows in your home that allow the safe evacuation of residents. To qualify, the window must meet certain minimum security standards. Like commercial buildings, planes, and buses, homes must have emergency exits in the event of a fire. The term comes from the Latin egressus. It means “going out”.
(3) Hung And Slider Vinyl Windows
Installation of monoplane windows is relatively easy, but special attention must be paid to the correct alignment of the frame. Otherwise, the sliding sash will not move smoothly and the gap will not be completely closed. The hinged vinyl windows are also energy efficient and have fewer gaps to allow drafting. This is an important factor in deciding whether to use a single sash window or a double sash window. Double-hung windows increase the chances of airflow to the house and create a cooling effect.
(4) Picture And Fixed Vinyl Windows
Picture windows, also known as fixed windows, provide a wide field of view and plenty of natural light. They are stationary and not open, which improves overall energy efficiency. Use the Picture Window alone or in combination with other window styles to maximize the view and improve ventilation. Often used for this purpose in high walls, corridors, and stairwells.
5) European Tilt And Turn Vinyl Windows
A European-style vinyl window that works as a combination of tilted and rotated windows with a single lock point does not require internal hardware or multiple lock points. They are designed to swing inward and bend inward by working with a single handle. Tilt & Turn windows are the dominant window style in Europe and are popular among the discerning architects, designers, and homeowners of North America. Unique tilt-and-turn hardware allows each unit to be tilted up for ideal indirect ventilation, or pivoted in for easy cleaning and emergency exits.
