Top Hung Windows

What is a Top Hung Window?

A top hung window, also known as an awning window, features hinges at the top and opens outward from the bottom. Top hung windows are commonly used in compact areas like bathrooms, storerooms, and stairwells. It’s compact design provides ventilation, brightness and privacy at the same time.


Top hung windows can be customized to fit alongside other window types, such as casement windows, to suit a variety of interior design styles and functional needs.

The Pros and Cons of Top Hung Windows


  • Enhanced Ventilation with Optional Fan Integration: Top hung windows are excellent for promoting airflow and can even be fitted with a fan to boost ventilation. This is particularly beneficial in areas like toilets where moisture and odors need to be managed effectively. The ability to open from the top allows fresh air to enter while stale air is pushed out, creating a continuous flow that enhances indoor air quality.
  • Increased Natural Light: The design of top hung windows maximizes the entry of natural light, making spaces more welcoming. This influx of daylight can also reduce the need for artificial lighting, leading to energy savings.
  • Versatility in Design: Available in a variety of sizes and styles, including aluminium framed options, top hung windows can be easily integrated into any design scheme. They can be used independently or combined with other window types to achieve both aesthetic appeal and functional excellence.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Generally more affordable than other types of windows, top hung windows are a budget-friendly option that doesn’t compromise on quality. Their energy-efficient design can also help reduce heating and cooling costs over time.


  • Limited Opening: While they offer excellent ventilation, top hung windows do not open fully like casement windows, which might limit the ability to enjoy completely unobstructed views.
