Awning windows excel at capturing a cool breeze and letting stagnant hot air flow out of a room. Because they open at the bottom, awning windows naturally shed water, so it’s possible to keep them open in damp weather. Because the handle is located at the bottom, an awning window is perfect for hard-to-reach areas like over a sink or counter. For homes in coastal regions threatened by hurricanes, Awning windows need to be built with sturdy frames and impact-resistant glass.
Marvin Coastline Awning windows are designed and manufactured in West Palm Beach, Florida, an area that has the most stringent hurricane building code requirements in North America. They are specifically engineered to protect people and property in those areas most prone to extreme winds and flying debris generated by hurricanes. But with Coastline Awning windows, you don’t have to sacrifice beauty for performance because each window is crafted with the most thoughtful details and the highest level of architectural precision.
Benefits of Hurricane Awning Windows
Beauty and Aesthetics
Every new construction and remodel project is different. That’s why we’ve built a remarkable level of design flexibility into our Awning windows. There are several decorative glass options, and simulated divided lites are available in many different profiles and custom configurations. There are also ten standard colors and wood grain finishes along with custom color options to provide you with unrestrained opportunities to bring your unique design vision to life.
Protection and Performance
Successful projects start with the best materials. The thick-walled, extruded aluminum frames work together with impact, laminated glass to create a protective barrier able to withstand the punishing forces caused by even the most ferocious hurricane. And unlike vinyl products, the aluminum components on a Coastline Awning window resist deterioration, distortion, or becoming brittle when exposed to years of intense sunlight.
In addition to its exceptional ability to resist hurricane forces, the laminated, impact glass in a Coastline Awning window is also effective at reducing irritating and disruptive outdoor sounds like noisy neighborhoods, barking dogs, and heavy traffic conditions.
