Tilt and turn windows are European style windows that are both stylish and functional in a home. These types of windows work well in contemporary, rustic, modern, and other styles of homes and work by tilting open at the top or swinging open like a door. One handle conveniently and easily operates the window with both of these two options. They also offer unique ventilation benefits and look great in various rooms of a home.

Hung windows are commonly used in traditional homes and buildings but also a beautiful choice in contemporary designs. Double hung windows are the most popular hung window type. The bottom sash can slide up and the top sash can slide down to provide maximum ventilation. Simultaneously opening both sashes allows warm air that has risen to escape out the top while cooler air flows in through the bottom sash. Windows can also be configured as a Single Hung window, in which only the bottom sash can be opened. Currently Super Enterprises only offers Hung type windows on commercial window projects.

Casement windows, also known as crank or hinged windows, are a popular style of windows that are designed for expansive views and ventilation. Casement windows are hinged on one side and can swing inwards or outwards by cranking out, pushing, or pulling the window hardware until the desired position is reached.

Awning windows exemplify simplicity and high-quality performance and are commonly used as a complement to casement or picture windows. Due to their simplicity, they are ideal for over sinks, kitchen counters, and other hard-to-reach locations. Awning windows swing out from the bottom and feature push-out or crank-out styles. These windows are operated with locking hardware that is located near the window sill.

Glider windows, which are also known as sliding windows, slide open on tracks for easy use and no lifting is required. These versatile windows have a smooth operation and offer a modern and streamlined look that’s classic and contemporary. Choose sliding windows for areas of the home when a swinging window won’t work or to save space in small areas with beautiful views.
