Casement Window: How It Works
A typical casement window is composed of the following elements:
- Frame. It can be fitted with a brickmold outside, jamb inside with casing.
- Sash. It’s the part of a window that holds the glass.
- Locking mechanism. It’s composed of the level handle, bar with rolling pins and the hooks on the sash.
- Crank mechanism. It opens and closes a window by twisting the handle.
- Hinges. They hold the windows on top and bottom supporting their weight.
- Weatherstrips. They ensure a leak and draft proof window when it’s closed.
Casement Windows Styles and Types
Casement windows are a common option in today's world, and for good reason. They're a perfect choice for homeowners who want unobstructed sightlines because they crank open and swing outward. Casement windows, unlike other types of windows, do not have a centre rail.
When most people think of casement windows, they think of single casement windows. There are, however, several other types of casement windows available. Let’s see what they are:
Double Casement Windows
Double casement windows, also known as vinyl French-style casement windows, have two sashes that open from the middle and don't have a centre stile, allowing for a large, unobstructed view. This one-of-a-kind option has hinges on both sides and can be operated by a single, easy-to-reach handle. Double casement windows are beautiful and can significantly improve the appearance and feel of your home.
Out Swing Casement Windows
The most common form of casement window is outswing casement windows. The majority of people like their windows to swing outward so they don't have to think about moving curtains or shutters in their way. This style is the most popular for single casement window replacement, but can also be split or combined with many other styles like picture or fixed casement. By default, the casement window is double pane, but triple is getting more and more popular because of its higher energy efficiency values.
In-Swing Casement Windows
This sort of casement window is just as it says on the tin. Instead of swinging open to the outside, it swings open into your house. It's as easy as turning the handle and pulling. For rooms where a swing-out sash would get in the way, such as in front of a bush, porch or next to a driveway, casement windows that open in are an alternative.
Push Out Casement Windows
Casement windows with a push-out feature are one-of-a-kind. Instead of using a crank, they use a handle and a gentle push to operate. Push-out casement windows are a great option for those who want to open their windows with ease and simplicity. To fit the aesthetic of your home, these windows are available in both traditional and contemporary designs.
Victorian Casement Windows
The windows with grills or mullions are commonly referred to as Victorian casement windows. SDL bars, outside on both glass panes would give the most realistic match of the traditional Victorian style windows which were once only available in hardwood or softwood timber materials, but thanks to technological advances, this much-loved style can now be reproduced in either aluminum or uPVC.
Casement Windows Sizes
Almost all windows used in homes do not come in standard sizes, they all get custom made to fit the openings available. There are some common sizes used by builders as 36 x 36" or 48 x 42" casement windows, but it's a small fraction of the market. It's actually cheaper and easier for the manufacturer to make the new windows rather than store all available sizes, which are pretty much endless.
Any size casement window can be made as long as it's within allowed size restrictions. At some point, the window becomes too small to fit the operating mechanisms inside the window or too big for those to hold the window's weight. The double-pane casement window should not be wider than 32" (can be pushed to 36" if it's short) and 66" height (can be pushed to 72" if it's narrow). For triple-pane heavier windows, it's 25" x 59".
Our clients ask
What is a casement in a window?
A casement window is a window that opens up to 90 degrees outward or inward along its entire length, basically they move like doors. It’s the oldest type of movable windows, when one of the sides is attached to its frame.
Where can casement windows be used?
Casement windows are very stylistically flexible, so they can be used in any room. But there are some options where they are the most effective:
- home office (to allow more light in);
- bathroom (to quickly vent excess humidity);
- bedroom and living room (to enjoy a view from the window and for more energy efficiency);
- kitchen (to quickly air out the kitchen smells).
Can casement windows be used in bedrooms?
If you need something energy-efficient, secure, with the best noise reduction, preventing form drafts and yet providing optimum ventilation, then casement windows will be an excellent option for your bedroom.
Are casement windows more expensive?
Casement windows will usually cost you 10-15% more than other window types. The price is higher for the locking system and crank handle opening mechanism. The cost of installation and all other parts is the same like for other windows.
How much do casement windows cost to install?
The installation cost of an average size casement window is about $160-200. The price is affected by the size, location and type of installation. The design of the window doesn’t matter to the installer.
How long does it take to install the casement window?
The time of the casement window installation process can be affected by its location, size and type of installation. In general it takes up to 2 hours, including removal of the old window.
Can you put a screen on a casement window?
Due to the casement windows open outwards, the screens are placed on the inside. The frame of the screens is made from aluminum, the mesh is fiberglass. They are very easy to remove for cleaning and almost unnoticeable for eyes, so nothing blocks a beautiful view.
Are casement windows easy to break into?
Casement windows are considered the most secure type of window. They are designed with hook-shaped locks that insert into the frame, and open via crank. When closed and latched the seal is very tight and they can not be opened from outside. The only easy way a would-be thief could open a casement window from the outside is to break the glass. In case you want more security the glass can be tempered or laminated which makes it hard to break.
How long do casement windows last?
New, quality casement windows, if properly installed, should last 25+ years. A lot of companies provide a lifetime warranty. But they can last even longer, if kept in good shape, regularly cleaned and lubricated.
