VWD Awning Windows are the Flagship Window of the Van Windows Direct Window Selection.

The Van Windows Direct Awning Series of Windows are the pinnacle of Aftermarket Van Windows setting a standard far above today's current offerings. What do you get with a VWD Awning Van Window? EVERYTHING!

Alright, perhaps not everything but let's go over what we have packed into this window.

Viewability - Our Awning series of windows has the largest viewing area of any of the vented styles of windows we sell the only window surpassing is Solid Windows and it's not by much. Let us explain the main glass of the window is a solid window and only a minimalistic frame surrounds the awning glass giving you an unmatched viewing area in an opening window.

Ventilation - Till now the choices have been sliding or awning. Sliding large un-obstructed opening, while previous awnings had smaller tilt out the glass with obstructed airflow preferred in the rain though. The VWD Awning Window adds an opening that rivals some sliders and tilts out 70°. Ventilation of a Slider convenience of an awning.

Convenience - Just like with ventilation things have always been split so when we designed our Awning, we wanted the ultimate accessibility. Limitations of current offerings many of the awning windows are not recommended to open while driving, and sliding windows are generally not open during rain.

The VWD Window has addressed these shortcomings by having heavy-duty pistons that hold the glass open that feature a locking knob this provides extra security for the window and the ability to open the vent a couple of inches and lock the pistons and use it while driving. Rain Shine, Camping, or Road Tripping the VWD Awning Window will be there for you.

So, we have already gone over a lot of information for this window, and we have yet to mention some of the interior functionality of the window. We have an accordion-style screen that is incased into the frame of the awning window, so open the window to the desired location by utilizing the two locking levers, then simply pull down the screen and enjoy a large, screened opening.

Security - We take the security of our windows seriously. When the window is closed two levers swing and lockdown on both bottom corners of the window. You then push the release button to swing the lever open making it nearly impossible for a would-be thief to enter through awning glass when locked. What about when it's opened though? To add an additional layer of protection the hydraulic pistons feature locking knobs so if you are in an area where a little more security would be nice, and you still want ventilation just slightly open the awning glass lock the piston knobs down so the window will not be able to be moved from the outside making it far more difficult to utilize the opening as entering point.

What's needed to Install?

 This window is installed with Urethane Adhesive, you will need a primer base. Both items come together in a convenient kit. 

 

VWD Urethane Installation Kit 

Window Securing Tape

 

How will I install this window?

You will need to create a template to cut your window hole. The easiest way is to use the cardboard box the window came in. A quick way is to make a rectangle pattern first about the cut hole measurement.  Approx.: xxxxxxxxx. Once you have your rectangle cut out. Lay on the inside of the bunk window making sure the frame and Triangular drainages on the bottom are within the template as that will need to go through the hole of the wall.  

 

If you are comfortable with the size of the template, you can hand draw or use a protractor for rounded corners.

 

Always double-check to ensure you have everything correct.

 

When drawing the template to the van if there are two people great. One can hold it while the other draws it out. If you are installing solo, once you know the spot you will be placing the window you can screw the cardboard into the sidewall to hold it in place, then draw your pattern.

 

Use a black marker for most vans. White-Out or White marker on Black vans.

 

Once your template is drawn onto the van, dry fit your window in place before cutting anything just to double-check that you are happy with the placement. Once confirmed, time to cut.

Cut out your hole with your choice of tool reciprocating saw, sheers, disc, etc...

Once the Hole has been cut out Dry fit your window in place. This is also a good time to practice placement as the bunk window will end up having the urethane on the window and you will set it into the hole for final attachment.
It is now time to begin the installation and clean the Bunk window with glass cleaner or rubbing alcohol emphasizing the areas where the urethane will be placed (blacked-out area on the backside of the window). Clean the wall of the Van around the opening same method.

Now using cotton daubers, you are going to apply primer to the wall of the van you do not need to put primer on the window. Since these bunk windows have such a small outside overlap, we like to tape off the wall of the van leaving only a 5/8” gap from cut edge to tape. Then apply the primer to the wall between the cut edge and tape. The reason for this is we do not want to go too far and have anything visible after installation. Wait about 10-15 mins for the primer to set. You can now remove the tape you were masking the wall off with.

If you are now ready to install the window, we will move on to the urethane application. If you are still a little uncomfortable with making sure you are setting in the exact location. You can once again dry fit the window get it in its perfect spot then apply securing tape or painters’ tape as if you were taping the window in place for the final time hover to make sure they are straight one in each corner top and bottom then one on each side, leaving the tape on wall and window use a razor to slice tape. This will now give you six markers for lining up the window.

Let us move on to the urethane application you will cut your urethane tip straight across no V-notch you want it to be a tootsie roll size of urethane make sure you evenly distribute straight to the frit (Blacked out Glass around the edge) - (backside of the window) itself not onto the wall and right next to the frame of the window.

The most important part of a urethane window installation is consistency in the bead of urethane. If you are happy with the bead your primer is set, and you have removed the tape that was masking the primer. Now you will place the window into the hole. If you have two people, it's a great one on the inside that can pull on the frame and line up the other outside ensuring the window does not fall. Once you have the window in the hole and in the place, you will want to open your hand to smack the window down. The goal with the window on a (Sprinter, Transit, or ProMaster) is to have the glass about even with the outer body. You do not want to place a small amount of urethane and have the glass flush on the wall while you may feel the aesthetic look is nicer when fluctuating temperatures shatter the glass will not be so appealing. You want to have about a ¼” gap between glass and wall which again will put you about flush with the outer body. On Vans without inset window sections window will hover on the outside. (This is not different between a clamp ring window or urethane, a clamp ring will have foam that fills the gap giving a flusher look however urethane is a far superior attachment method).

Now that your window is set in place use Window securing tape, to hold the window in place. You will be able to drive your Van after 3 hrs. and remove the tape after 24hrs, best to wait for 72hrs before washing the vehicle. (Colder temperatures 50degrees and below double time)

There may be urethane then oozes into the interior of the van, using glass cleaner spray the urethane with a liberal amount then using a plastic putty knife smooth the urethane out like you spackling a wall to ensure complete coverage of the hole and a nicer appearance.
