Casement windows or casements are windows that are attached to a frame through one or more hinges. They open and close like books by either being swung in or out. They consist of a frame, hinges, and a handle which is used to open and close them. Other varieties of casement windows are opened and closed using a lever, crank, or cam handle. These parts are either placed at hand height on the windows or are installed at the bottom. Aside from being used to open and close casement windows, the crank, lever, handle, and cam handle are also used as locks. Casement windows are hinged at the side and are either used singly or as pairs in a common frame. Those that are used in pairs are hinged outside. They are usually kept open through a casement stay, crank, or friction hinge. French casements are one of the most popular styles of casement windows. These are made with hinges on both sides and two separate panes of glass. French casement windows can be opened up unobstructed at the center. Even though casement windows are no longer as popular as they used to be, they are still used as replacement windows today. Like other styles of windows, they can also be installed as a single unit or can be grouped together. Casements are an ideal choice for windows that are situated above countertops, cabinets, and other places that are difficult to reach since they have handle mechanisms that are easy to use. Since they swing open, casement windows are really easy to clean. This is perhaps the greatest advantage of using them. Our casement windows are designed to be quick and easy to clean.
