Whether you have just bought a property for a renovation project or simply want to improve the aesthetics of your current home, new windows can be confusing. The most popular type on the market today is casement and they offer many benefits such as security and insulation.
You can explore the wide range of benefits available to you when choosing casement windows by reading what our professionals have to say about the benefits and what casement windows are. Some of these benefits include better insulation, higher security standards and better air circulation which are all essential for your wellbeing in today’s society.
What are Casement Windows?
Firstly, you might be asking yourself “what are casement windows?” They were originally the earliest form of moving window, they are functional, versatile and lightweight making it possible to easily ventilate any room where they are installed. A casement window is attached to the window frame by hinges, either at the top, bottom or side, enabling the window to open from the hinge. While the frame can be made from wood and aluminium, the most popular and common form of casement frame is UPVC.
Greater Opening Capabilities
It is true what they say, if you are looking for a window that provides greater ventilation then the casement style is ideal for you. The ventilation capabilities of casement windows are far greater than that of sash windows. The unique hinge design means they can open as little or as far as you need them to, and on a warm summer’s day they create a ‘funnel’ which the cool outside air can enter your home through.
Should you be looking to enjoy the views from your property, then casement windows also have the added benefit of less framework than other window styles, there are little to no sections separating the glass. When you choose casement windows the only thing separating you from the outside world is the glazing. What’s more UPVC casement windows also have the majority of the hardware holding them together within the actual frames, so this enhances the size of the glass.
