Casement Windows Installed in Norwich & Norfolk
The most common style of window construction in the UK market is the casement window. The ‘casement’ as it is referred to, is the section of window that opens. A window panel incorporating the glass is fixed to the frame via single or multiple side hinges, allowing the window to open very much like a door.
We regularly install different variations of casement window in Norwich albeit you may come across them under different names. For example, awning windows are casement windows with the hinges fitted at the top whereas hopper windows are hinged at the bottom.
Casement windows are the cheapest style to manufacture and are extremely customisable, hence their popularity. Unlike sash windows they are much easier to replace or to repair.
Casement Window Stay
To hold the window open a fixture known as a casement stay is used and can also provide a level of security via locking capability.
90° Opening Angle
Egress stays can be added to casement windows to allow the window to open fully at a 90 degree angle therefore providing an emergency fire escape. The egress stay also allows for easy cleaning as you can clean the windows from the inside.
It is very easy to add child locks to casement windows to restrict the window opening, giving you peace of mind for their bedroom windows.
Casement windows perform well mechanically and get their efficiency via the seal compression created when the windows are closed. In terms of operation they are simple and allow a large amount of ventilation.
Flush Casement Window
If you’re looking for an ultra-modern look with the flexibility of the casement structure, then consider a flush casement window install. The casement sits flush within the frame to make it very aesthetically pleasing and works well for both modern and traditional homes.
