Residential Awning Window (102mm frame)| Series 517


A very popular window - and for good reason. Awning windows push out  effortlessly from the bottom and give ventilation with a measure of protection  from unexpected passing showers.
When closed, awning windows offer excellent  resistance against air and moisture penetration. Series 517 Awning windows deliver 450Pa water resistance (suitable for Darwin) and have a 102mm frame
