Just like a door, casement windows are hinged on the side and open outward. In most cases they utilize a crank to open and close the window, but there are “push to open” mechanisms available, which simply allows you to push the window out to open once unlocked. Casement windows can be set up to open either to the left or the right. It’s ability to open up almost a full 90-degrees makes it a great choice for many rooms in your home.
Known for providing great views, allowing plenty of natural ventilation and natural light, casement windows are considered one of the most popular window styles. The crank mechanism makes them easy to use, their locking mechanism ensures they are secure once locked and also compresses the weather stripping to generate an airtight seal making them both safe and energy efficient.
