Casement windows: features and benefits

Casement windows are versatile systems that fit a variety of architectural styles. They harmonize with the exterior of the house and fill the rooms with natural light. If you want to make the right investment in your Edmonton home, new pendant windows are a good choice.

What is a casement window

The window can consist of one or two parts. It is possible to combine options: one movable sash and one fixed sash or both sashes with opening mechanisms. The hinges are installed at the top or bottom of the frame.

The windows work vertically, so they save space. When you open a pendant sash, its moving side moves on guides. The sash can tilt inward or outward.

Casement window types

The window consists of one fixed part and one active part. The movable unit opens up or down on the guides, while the fixed unit remains stationary. The operable part makes the outside of the window accessible for cleaning and provides ventilation for the space. A popular option for replacement windows in homes in Canada.
