A casement window is hinged on one side and swings outward to the left or right. It easily opens and closes with a crank that folds away when not in use or an Easy-Slide Operator that uses the same simple motion as dimming the lights with a dimmer switch. This easy-to-open design makes casement windows ideal for tough-to-reach places, such as over a kitchen sink or bathtub. When closed, casement windows offer excellent energy efficiency. When open, they capture natural breezes that make rooms especially refreshing. When screens are added, they are located on the interior, keeping them from interfering with the operation of the window and protecting them from the elements to help them stay clean longer.
Casement windows can be used in any style home. The sleek window frame can bring a modern feel with an unobstructed, large pane of glass. If traditional is more your style, adding a grille pattern can offer timeless design interest by dividing the light that enters a room.
