A Vinyl Casement Window operates much like a door, the sash (the movable portion of a window) swings outward from a hinge system that is usually operated by a hand crank on the interior of the window. There are a few benefits that a casement window has over other window styles. When the window is in its full open position, the entire opening is a vent, where a single hung window for instance, only half of the opening is a vent. The unobstructed view a casement window offers if perfect for that jaw dropping view. Most casement windows have a multi point lock that offers more security then some of the other window styles.
In addition to the right and left hinge options, we can also offer them in a series of combinations, double casement, and matching profile fixed windows. One advantage of the hinge system is that when the window is open, the outside glass may be cleaned from the interior. Another advantage is that the screens are on the inside, keeping them clean and in great shape for a lifetime of service.
