The so called casement windows are a specific type of window that is attached to the frame of the window by one or more hinges. This type of window is having its hinges on the sides of the window while the one that is having the hinges on top is the one called awning window. There is also the one having the hinges at the bottom called as the hoppers. In using the so called casement window type there are the casement stays used to supper the window when opened.
The casement windows are the most popular choice of window in the UK. The window is usually having leaded glass that is the glass panes held in the place along with the strips called as cames. It is different from the lead glass that is the manufacturer of the cames itself. The direction of the opening mechanism is usually inward towards the interior. This is to be paired with the exterior functional shutters that are opening outwards of course. There is lever, crank, or cam handle that are used to open the casement windows design.
Just as in many things that often having advantages and disadvantages, the casement windows are also having the good things to obtain. One best thing of this type of window is that it is very much weathertight. This particular type of window is placed second on the list of weatertight window. The first one is the fixed window while the third one is the sliding window. It means that there will be less airflow going through the window once it is closed. The way that the window is opened inside is another good thing especially if the window is in second floor. Once the casement windows are opened, it will be able to boost more air to reach the house.
