CASEMENT WINDOWS

Some casement windows are pushed open and closed manually using a handle, but the majority use a hand crank, which is typically positioned on the bottom of the window frame.

WHAT ARE CASEMENT WINDOWS?

A casement window is a popular choice for a wide range of home projects. Since casement windows come with a sleek window frame, they often give a modern feel due to the large pane of glass. Casement windows are also perfect for hard-to-reach spaces, and as they are environment agnostic, they work perfectly well in all types of weather. During summer and winter, for example, they can keep the home insulated from extreme weather conditions.

Sashes on casement windows are hinged on the sides and open outward from either the left or right. Some casement windows are pushed open and closed manually using a handle, but the majority use a  hand crank, which is typically positioned on the bottom of the window frame. Crank-operated windows work well in kitchens and bathrooms where cabinets or a bathtub might make accessing the upper part of the window difficult. Casement windows have a modern look to them — however, introducing divided lite bars or window grids, creates a more classic look.

Casement windows offer large, continuous expanses of glass because there is only one sash. Compared to other types of windows, casement windows are the best at preventing air infiltration when closed. They are equally as effective at attracting a breeze when open, and because they are positioned on the inside of the glass, screens remain clean for longer. Because the sash on casement windows allows for a nearly unobstructed opening, residents can exit through the window in the event of a fire or emergency, which would not be possible with other window styles.
