Casement Windows

Casement windows are a type of window that is hinged on one side and opens outward like a door. Casement windows are operated by a crank mechanism or a lever handle. When the crank or handle is turned, the window sash swings open outward from one side on hinges. This allows for maximum ventilation and easy cleaning of the window from the inside.

Casement windows have a classic and timeless design. They usually consist of a single sash that opens outward, providing unobstructed views and allowing ample natural light into the room. Casement windows are available in various sizes and configurations to suit different architectural styles and preferences.

Casement windows offer excellent ventilation. When fully opened, the entire window area is exposed, allowing fresh air to flow into the room. This makes them ideal for areas where good airflow is desired, such as kitchens or bathrooms. Casement windows can be energy efficient when properly installed and equipped with appropriate features. When closed, the sash presses against the frame, creating a tight seal that minimizes air leakage and improves insulation. Look for casement windows with energy-efficient glass options, such as low-E (low-emissivity) coatings and insulated frames, to enhance energy efficiency and reduce heating or cooling costs.

Akshara’s Casement windows can provide good security. When closed and locked, the sash is tightly sealed against the frame, making it difficult for intruders to force open the window from the outside. Additionally, many casement windows come with multiple locking points for added security.
