What is a casement window?

A Casement window is a window that opens outwards via a hinge located at the side or top. It is attached to a frame by one or more hinges and either a manual (or automatic) mechanism which cranks the window outwards, away from the home. The casement window comes in a number of different forms the most recognisable one being the side hung which is hinged at the side for easy opening.

The top hung or awning casement window is hinged at the top which is perfect for wet climates as it blocks out rain. Conversely, the bottom hung casement window is hinged at the bottom and is commonly used in basements.
