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. So 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 that the central glass of the window is a solid window; 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. They are sliding large unobstructed openings, while previous ceilings had more minor tilts out of the glass with obstructed airflow preferred in the rain. The VWD Awning Window adds a space 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 and feature a locking knob. This provides extra security for the window and the ability to open the vent a couple of inches, lock the pistons, and use it while driving. So 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 encased into the frame of the awning window, so open the window to the desired location by utilizing the two locking levers, then pull down the screen and enjoy a large, screened opening.
Security - We take the security of our windows seriously. Two levers swing and lockdown on both bottom corners when the window is closed. You then push the release button to open the lever, making it nearly impossible for a would-be thief to enter through the awning glass when locked. What about when it's opened, though? To add a layer of protection, the hydraulic pistons feature locking knobs. Hence, if you are in security would be nice. You still want if you are in an area with a bit of security ventilation, slightly open the awning glass and lock the piston knobs down so the window cannot be moved from the outside, making it far more challenging to utilize the opening as an entering point.
|What's needed to Install it?|
This window is installed with Urethane Adhesive; you will need a primer base. Both items come together in a convenient kit.
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.: 36-3/8" x 15-1/8". 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 in the wall.
If you are comfortable with the template size, you can hand draw or use a protractor for rounded corners.
Always double-check to ensure you have everything correct.
When drawing the template for the Van, it would be great if there were two people; one could hold it while the other drew it out. However, 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 slip-on Black vans.
Once your template is drawn onto the Van, dry-fit your window before cutting anything 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 an excellent 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 the last attachment.
