Awning hung windows maximise airflow

The classic window frames most often seen in New Zealand homes are awning hung windows. These consist of wood window frames with at least one opening sash, hinged and hung from the top of the frame. When fully opened, the flow of air is maximised.

When ventilation is a priority

Awning hung windows are a great choice when ventilation is a priority. The option to open the window partially, is perfect for passive ventilation. It helps remove moisture in the air, creating a healthier atmosphere.

Some of our most popular awning hung window options

CT Timber Joinery can customise awning hung windows in any size or configuration to meet your requirements. You can choose between single glazing and double glazing options.

Your joinery will need to be installed by a qualified builder. If you need help installing your joinery, our experienced Project Managers may be able to recommend someone suitable. Your glazing can be measured, manufactured and installed by our factory glazer once the joinery is installed, please read our glazing options below.

Pre-Priming Custom Timber Joinery

As a rule, CT Timber Joinery pre-primes all timber joinery before it leaves the factory, unless you have requested a clear finish for wood you plan to stain or protect otherwise. We do this to protect the wood from moisture ingress during the period between supply and installation. Pre-priming simplifies your painting process as our doors and windows won’t require an undercoat but will require a minimum of 2 top coats of paint.

After ensuring the wood is completely dry and free from dust and dirt, we apply the timber primer – a modified alkyd based pigmented sealer designed specifically for wooden joinery. It’s formulated for excellent adhesion and coverage and will provide you with the best possible surface for your top coating needs. For additional short term moisture protection, we also apply an ACE 121 timber preservative to all wood end grains.

Glazing Options for Commercial and Residential Timber Joinery

We are joiners. We specialise in the manufacture of timber windows and doors, many of which will require glazing. At our highly sophisticated Auckland manufacturing plant we have an independent glazer on site who can measure and install your glass. If you would like a quote for glazing please ensure you request this when briefing us.

Due to the weight of most finished products, our glazer normally measures the glass once the custom joinery is made. He then installs it after your builder has fitted the wooden frames. You do of course have the option to work with your own glazer if you prefer.

CT Timber Joinery use the following standard glazing materials but there are many other options available:

  • Single Glazing 6.38mm laminated
  • Double Glazing 4mm toughened either side with a 12mm spacer for 58mm thick joinery
  • Double Glazing 4mm toughened either side with a 10mm spacer for 44mm thick joinery

What a pleasure it was to deal with Stuart at CT joinery. From start to finish, the service was quick, professional & punctual. All items of joinery arrived on time & perfect to the shop drawings provided. The workmanship also deserves a mention, as it is very high quality, and a dream to use once installed. I can’t recommend CT joinery enough, and I’m looking forward to dealing with them on the next project.
