Origin of awningOrigin unknown
1615-25 (nautical sense only); from *awn + -ing, reduction of Middle French auvans ‘sloping roof’, from Old French anvant (1180), from Gaulish *an(de)banno (“eaves”) (compare Provençal ambans ‘parapet’), compound of ande ‘intensive prefix’ (compare Welsh an-, Old Irish ind-) and banno ‘horn’ (compare Welsh ban, Irish beann).
- Awning - Used above a door or below a stationary window to get more ventilation, awning windows are generally wider than they are tall and have hinges on the top so that they open outward.
- An awning would need to be removed in these cases, which can be a lot of work, and it should also be removed during the winter months to help protect it from snow and wind.
- Depending on how much use you plan to get from your awning, and your comfort level for maneuvering the shade yourself, you can choose from the following options.
- Outer Conditions: Look out for leaks and seals, while also inspecting the windows, screens, ventilation shafts, awning canvases, lights, mirrors and wheels.
- I was sometimes tempted to stretch an awning over them and take my seat there.
