Casement windows open from a side frame hinge. Their large single sash lends them a modern feel with tons of natural light.
What are Casement Windows?
A casement window has a single sash hinged on either the left or the right of the frame. Most casement windows are operated with a folding hand crank on the bottom of the frame. This easy operation makes casement windows a top choice for spaces like kitchens or bathrooms, where cabinets or large bathtubs may block access to upper portions of a window.
Casement windows typically give off a modern aesthetic, but you can add window grids or divided lite bars for a more traditional feel. Thanks to their single sash design, these windows can offer a wide uninterrupted view, top-notch ventilation, and painless cleaning. Casement windows are also a great choice for safety and security concerns. In case of emergency, the sash can open 90-degrees out to serve as a secondary exit for residents.
