A casement window is attached to its frame by hinges at the side and opens by pivoting outward. These windows are operated with a crank or lever handle that also serves as a lock. These windows are increasingly popular and have excellent ventilation, making them perfect in hot climates as they can be set at different angles to allow direct breezes into your home.
What is the Difference Between Single Hung Windows and Casement Windows?
Traditional single or double-hung windows are designed to slide upward to maximize ventilation and generally have multiple glass panes joined together. On the other hand, casement windows are manufactured with a single large glass piece fixed on an outward-opening hinge. These designs usually open and close with the use of a crank instead of needing manual adjustments to operate the window, as is the case with more traditional styles.
