What is a casement window

The sash is combined with the window frame through a hinge, and the sash can be opened by rotation. There are single and double fans, which can be opened inside or outside. Casement windows are simple in construction, easy to manufacture and install, and have good wind and ventilation effects.

They are the most widely used windows. It is a traditional window type, which can be divided into side-opening windows and hanging windows according to the position of the hinge. Side-opening windows are opened horizontally, and the sash is always balanced during the opening process. There is no need to worry about the danger of self-movement under the influence of gravity. It is generally used for large-scale main windows. Because the hanging window is opened vertically, the opening angle is limited.

Generally used for ventilation in kitchens and bathrooms. Newer casement windows can have both side-windows and hanging windows, allowing bidirectional opening.

With the development of casement windows, an aluminum alloy plastic steel window appeared later. It is a new form developed on the basis of casement windows. It has two opening methods, which can be opened flat or pushed from the top. When the casement window is closed, push the upper part of the window outward to open a gap of about ten centimeters.

There is no doubt that the window can be opened a bit from above, and the opened part is suspended in the air, and fixed with the window frame by a hinge or the like. Its unique advantages are: it can be ventilated and it can be safe. Because of the hinge, the window can only open a ten-centimeter slit, and it cannot be reached from the outside. It is especially suitable for use when there is no one at home.

Types of Casement Windows  

Casement windows are the most contemporary and convenient of all window types. The window is mounted on hinges and a manual (or automatic) mechanism cranks the window outward and away from the home. Some homeowners may choose to have the window crank in for easier cleaning, but this isn’t common.

Casement windows are the most popular type of window based on style, energy efficiency, and attractiveness. Although all casement windows have the same components, there are three different types. The best type for your home will depend on the construction of the home, climate, and cost, and of course, preference.

The three types of casement windows are:

Single frame casement windows are the standard style of casement windows. The window consists of a single frame. Inside the frame are panels of glass known as lights. The lights are separated by wooden strips and they open out or in, depending on how they’re mounted.

Double casement windows were originally called French casement windows. This window consists of two windows hinged on the sides that swing out and meet in the middle. Double casement windows are more expensive than single, but they add an elegant touch to the home.

Push-out casement windows come in both single and double styles. Push-out windows use a handle instead of a crank. This is the least popular type of casement window.

Advantages of High-end Casement Windows

Are you considering replacing your home’s windows? Casement windows are a great selection and come with many benefits. Casement windows have a single sash and are hinged on the side—they feature a hand crank that opens the window vertically on a metal track.

The hand cranks that open casement windows come at a great advantage for windows in hard to reach places—such as above countertops, sinks, furniture, etc. You don’t have to worry about pushing a window open or reaching up to close your windows—most hand cranks are found on the base of the window and make the windows extremely simple to open and close.

# Energy Efficiency

On average, casement windows are the second most energy-efficient type of window, after fixed-pane windows. When closed, casement windows have an airtight seal, preventing unwanted airflow into and out of the house.

 # Wide Open Ventilation

Unlike other windows that only open half-way vertically or horizontally, casement windows open completely. This can allow for a nice breeze into your home on a cool summer night or allow for the first feeling of spring to freshen up your home after a cold winter.

 # Superior Security

The locks on casement windows are embedded into the frame, providing enhanced safety and security. You can also choose how wide you want your windows open, so you don’t have to leave your home vulnerable with a big opening.

 # Versatility

Casement windows come in a variety of materials, including:

Aluminum-clad
