What is a casement window?
A casement window is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges. It is opened by turning a crank handle, which causes the window to swing outward like a door. Casement windows are typically hinged on the side, but they can also be hinged at the top or bottom. They are a popular choice for residential and commercial buildings because they offer good ventilation and are easy to operate. They can be used singly or in pairs, and are often combined with other types of windows, such as fixed windows or sliding windows.
What are the benefits of a casement window?
There are several benefits to using casement windows in a residential or commercial building. Some of the main benefits include:
Good ventilation: Casement windows are designed to open outward, which allows for maximum airflow into the room. This can help to improve the indoor air quality and make the space more comfortable.
Energy efficiency: Casement windows can be more energy efficient than other types of windows because they create a tight seal when closed, which can help to prevent drafts and reduce heat loss in the winter.
Easy to operate: Casement windows are easy to open and close, with a crank handle that allows for precise control over the window's position.
Security: Casement windows are more secure than other types of windows because they are more difficult to force open from the outside.
Aesthetics: Casement windows add a distinctive look to the exterior of a building and can be customized with various frame and glass options to suit the style of the building.
Glass options for a casement window:
A double pane window is a type of window that is composed of two panes of glass separated by a space, or "air gap." The air gap between the panes of glass is sealed and can be filled with air or an inert gas, such as argon or krypton. Double pane windows are a popular choice for residential and commercial buildings because they provide several benefits over single pane windows.
A triple pane window is a type of window that is composed of three panes of glass separated by two spaces, or "air gaps." The air gaps between the panes of glass are sealed and can be filled with air or an inert gas, such as argon or krypton. Triple pane windows are a popular choice for residential and commercial buildings because they provide even better insulation and energy efficiency than double pane windows.
(low-e) glass is a type of window glass that has a thin, transparent coating applied to one or both sides of the glass. The coating is designed to reflect heat and reduce the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that passes through the glass.
Argon gas is used as a filling in energy efficient windows. It is an inert gas that is used to reduce heat transfer between the inside and outside of a building. Because argon is denser than air, it is able to reduce the amount of heat that is lost through a window by limiting the movement of air in the space between the window panes. This can help to keep a building warm in the winter and cool in the summer, which can save energy and reduce heating and cooling costs. In addition to its insulating properties, argon gas is also a poor conductor of electricity, so it can help to reduce the amount of electrical conductivity in a window.
