With casement windows, homeowners get the best of both worlds—unobstructed views and ventilation control. These hinged windows are easy to operate and offer durability and energy efficiency when sealed shut.
Unlike double hung windows, which consist of an upper and lower windowpane that slide up and down within the frame, casement windows open outward like doors. They use a handheld crank to open and close.
Easy to Operate
Unlike sliding windows, casement windows open wide using a single crank and can be opened even further for ventilation. This operating style also makes cleaning easy as the window is easily accessible from inside and can be opened from any angle.
Tilt and turn windows offer a similar opening mechanism but are better in terms of safety, comfort, and functionality. Their handle folds and nestles into the frame for a clean appearance while opening and is also easier to maintain. They also offer more open modes than casement windows making them a more versatile choice for any home.
The disadvantage of these windows is that they can be difficult to operate when the hinges are exposed to outside elements. This can lead to wear and tear over time. This may also make them susceptible to damage from intruders attempting to break in. However, with proper maintenance these windows can still be a great addition to any home.
Unlike double-hung windows, Casement windows open wide and don’t need a rail to keep them in place when they’re opened. This maximizes their view and makes them easy to use.
This window style’s insulated glass unit also helps improve energy efficiency by keeping the cold air out and the warm air in. This can help lower your energy bills and make your home more comfortable.
Our Casement windows feature a tilt turn design and are available in sizes where the operable sash can reach up to 48 x 96”. They’re also built to be more secure. In order to break them, an intruder would have to physically force the handle to turn it. This makes it more difficult than breaking double-hung windows and other types of American-made windows.
Our replacement windows also have a lock built into the frame to add an extra layer of security. They’re also easy to open and close with our state-of-the-art Truth Maxim hardware and a low-profile, single-handle positive locking system.
Unlike double-hung or sliding windows that open from the bottom and top, casement windows are hinged on the side and swing outward with a simple crank of a handle. This allows them to provide adequate ventilation, especially with a gap at the top that provides vertical air exchange.
This feature also makes casement windows easier to use and clean. They can be opened all the way, even above sinks and other obstacles that would be difficult to reach with sliding windows or other types of windows that only open a small amount.
Additionally, they are more secure because there is no mechanism to access the crank from outside the window unless it is broken. This provides an added layer of security from harsh weather and potential intruders. Our tilt turn windows are even more secure with a multi-point locking system and European standard RC2 burglary proofing. This is miles above the standard American hardware that is used in most American windows.
The slender window style offers easy operation and ventilation. It maximizes glass surface area for a clean look that complements any home. The crank handle folds and nestles away when not in use for a clutter-free aesthetic. This operating style works well for areas that are difficult to reach like over sinks or other obstacles.
Casement windows are made weatherproof by a special sealant that the installation team applies during the process. This prevents the penetration of high winds and rain that tend to weaken less durable windows.
Our tilt turn casement windows are extremely durable and have European standard RC2 burglary-proofing. This makes them miles more secure than North American standard windows. This is achieved by using steel reinforced frames and a multi locking system that protects your home from intruders. Our windows also feature safety glazing to provide an extra level of protection.
