Casement Windows

Casement Windows

When you decide to make the switch to new, energy-efficient windows you have many options to choose from, and depending on the application for the window, you can make an informed choice. Generally, when you purchase new windows, you seek the good counsel from a windows and doors consultant like us at AM Window & Door Solutions. We supply our own windows and doors from our AM Designer Series. To monitor and ensure top quality products, our production facilities are equipped with all essential components that are required for the production processes. We pride ourselves in supplying the most dependant and energy efficient windows on the market. With every step of the process under our control, from insulating the glass fabrication units, to PVC profile bending for our vinyl windows; we can ensure our service and quality is unmatched.

Before we can dive into the benefits of a particular window, we need to tell you about the window, why it may be a good fit for your home, and how it differs from other windows. Remember too, that you can install different windows in different places in your home for decorative effect or a specific application that will meet the needs of your home. 

Casement Windows

The design of a casement window is that it is attached to its frame by one or more hinges, which are connected to the frame by the side of the window. The window itself can be constructed as a single or double window inside a common frame.

Casement windows open with casement stay, if the window is hinged at the bottom of the window it is called hopper, and if it is hinged at the top, then it is called an awning window. The window opens with a “Roto” crank mechanism, heavy duty hardware options with corner drive and 150lbs rated hinges. Additionally, a lever or a handle is positioned at the bottom of the window, making it easier to access in opening the window. If the window opens out, it will be equipped with a crank, stay or friction hinge to keep the window steady in the wind. The glass in the frame is secured in a rabbeted frame and sealed with putty around the edges to provide an airtight seal in the compartment. In general, casement windows are rated as the highest efficiency air leakage prevention window on the market because they seal shut by pressing against the frame in comparison with sliding windows.

There are many advantages that come with casement windows, here are a few of the benefits that make casement windows stand out. First off, a casement window opens the widest of all windows in its class. Another added benefit is they fact that can be opened on an angle and catch the breeze as it blows in, allowing for extra ventilation wherever you decide to install the window. Casement windows provide an excellent security feature that isn’t common with other windows. Because the casement locks are hooked-shaped, they are difficult to pry open, protecting your home in a way you have never imagined.
