Casement windows, also known as French casement windows, are hinged at the side to open outward with a single handle crank.
Benefits of Casement Windows
Make Your Casement Window Your Own
With a casement window, you have the option to open your window to the left or opening your window to the right. Plus, the sleek design of the casement handle lays flush to the window frame so it will not disturb your blinds or window treatments.
Let in Lots of Air and Light
The casement window has the ability to be cranked fully open, providing excellent ventilation and natural light for your room.
How a Casement Window Operates
Opening and Closing
Casement windows come with an easy to operate single hand crank, which is painless to use even in the most difficult to get to spaces such as over your kitchen sink. You can turn the crank counterclockwise to open your casement window or clockwise to close it.
Common Applications for Casement Windows in a Home
These elegant windows are frequently found in kitchens over countertops, in difficult to reach spaces, or used in combination to create multiple-opening window spaces in bedrooms.
