Casement windows are attached to the frame by one or more hinges on the side, and are often held open via a casement stay. Casement windows are used singly or in pairs within a common frame, in which case their hinges are found on the outside.
There are many wonderful advantages of casement windows, including:
Casement windows offer the best ventilation out of any other kind of window. Because they open outward, they can catch fresh air and sunlight more easily. When opened, the standard casement window is 100% open to the outdoors, barring pairs of casement flanking windows on either side of a picture window.
When closed, casement windows are the most energy-efficient of any window type. Because the sash is movable, it can fasten very securely to the weather-stripping when in the locked position, making it uniquely airtight.
Because of their design, casement windows are a good choice for hard to reach places such as over kitchen sinks. Because you open them via crank instead of pushing them upward, casement windows are easy to open and close and thus easier to wash.
The hardware and hinges in casement windows should be checked periodically to ensure they are maintaining stability. Casement windows are usually very difficult to break into even when locked, but as they age, their hardware can rust or become faulty without proper maintenance. This can make them easier targets for burglars.
Make sure to arrange for regular maintenance for your casement windows with your Window Guardians team to ensure your windows stay in optimal condition.
There’s a reason you never see large casement windows: there are size limitations, even given the best hardware and construction methods. Consult with your team at Window Guardians to determine the sizes available.
It might surprise you to learn that casement windows don’t have to swing out: they can also open in! Casement windows that open inward are referred to as inswing casement windows.
French casement windows consist of a pair of casement windows side-by-side that open out from the center with a vertical post in-between. With French casement windows, you can simply open both windows simultaneously.Read More >>
