Casement Window ← Back to Window Styles
Casement windows are the most common and cost effective. We make casement windows in uPVC and timber. Unlike many of our competitors, our uPVC windows are fully reinforced; this not only increases their strength but also their weather resistance and security features.
Casement windows may be single light (pane) units either fixed or openable. But, may also comprise multi-light units with a mix of fixed and openable sections – view window designs.
How it works
The simplest of window styles they are outward opening and available in side hung (like a door) and top hung (like a letterbox) formats.
The size of openable parts (sashes) is restricted. For a side hung sash the maximum size is 700mm wide and 1300mm high, with a semi-perimeter of 1900mm. For a top hung sash the maximum size is 1300mm wide and high with a semi-perimeter of 2500mm. The degree to which sashes can be opened is also restricted.
Side hung and shallow top hung sashes can be fitted with easy-clean hinges, to facilitate cleaning the outside from inside. Suitably sized side hung sashes can be fitted with fire egress hinges.
