Loving my new windows
I’m loving my new Winplex windows. I got them installed just in time for that super hot day yesterday – even though it was 44 degrees outside, I barely used my A/C all day! They look great, and the built in fly screens mean that I can have the doors and windows open without letting in any insects. The Winplex team kept in contact from ordering, through installation and then followed up with me afterwards. I couldn’t be happier.

Awning Windows vs Casement Windows
Awning windows are best if you’re looking for airflow but don’t need to open the window all the way.
Awning Windows vs Sliding Windows
Awning windows are best if you’re looking for airflow but don’t need to open the window all the way. Meanwhile, sliding windows tend to have larger openings, which could cause too much breeze to come into the house.

Fly-Screens for Awning Windows
We offer 2 options for fly-screens for awning windows:
The espag awning has a simple mechanism with just the turn of a handle and the window opens outwards. This hardware is imported from Germany and requires Retractable Fly-Screens. This will be required to be fitted after the installation is completed and is not something that we include.
The truth hardware set is an American winding system that winds out from the bottom. It includes 2 Lock-in Points on either side and can have Fixed Fly-Screens fitted prior to installation.
How can awning windows improve ventilation?
The design lets breeze in whilst keeping moisture out. Since it’s hinged at the top, you can even ventilate your house when it’s raining.
Can awning windows bring in more natural light?
Yes, they can bring in natural light, but can also reduce it if it’s frosted glass. If you choose to have frosted, you can simply open it to bring in more light. Since awning windows tend to be placed higher on the wall, you can increase natural sunlight to your space while still protecting your privacy.
Do awning windows need a lot of maintenance?
The design is low-maintenance as awning windows don’t need as many parts like a sliding window. Our uPVC window frames and double glazed glass are even more low-maintenance compared to traditional aluminum windows.
Will awning windows reduce my air-conditioning costs?
Yes! One of the greatest benefits of awning windows is that they are energy efficient. They provide supreme ventilation whilst allowing humidity or steam to escape.
Will awning windows provide added home security?
Awning windows can definitely increase your home’s security. Firstly, if you position high on your wall, strangers outside can’t easily peek into your home. Secondly, they aren’t easy to break into or open from the outside.
Do awning windows allow a lot of sunlight?
Yes! The windows are designed to provide maximum sunlight due their large double glazed panels. Some awning windows have colonial bars or grilles, but their large glass coverage will still allow for a lot of sunlight. If your windows are facing East or West, you’ll get a lot of light.
Do awning windows need a lot of maintenance?
Not at all. Despite their seemingly complex mechanism, Awning Windows have simple opening and locking systems that are not prone to breakage. Also, with some cheap window cleaning spray or simply water and soap (or vinegar), you can quickly clean your beautiful double glazed glass panels.
Is it advisable to place awning windows in the front of the house?
Most definitely! They are perfect for any part of the house: front, rear, upstairs, downstairs, basements, attics, bedroom, kitchen and more. These windows have a limited opening at the top, so you won’t have to worry about intruders trying to climb in when you have your awning windows opened. If you’re worried about privacy, you can simply install blinds or curtains in front of the window. You can even install tint or reflective film on the window panes. Winplex has an assortment of accessories to cater to your needs.
What’s the advantage of having Awning Windows in the kitchen?
It’s common to have these windows near the kitchen nowadays, because they typically replace standard kitchen windows. Thinking about cooking fish? How about some grilled meat using the indoor griller? You’d want to air out the smoke not only for better air quality but to also let out the food odour. Simply open the Awning Window to allow an opening at the top and the natural ventilation flow will take its course.
