What Are Casement Windows?

Casement windows were developed in Britain and Germany, and for centuries they’ve been a mainstay in homes across the globe. One of the earliest forms of movable windows, they are designed with a hand crank that pushes the window out to open and close like a door.

In American homes, French windows that feature two panels are especially popular. Casement windows are similar to awning and hopper windows in that their openings are hinged, though a casement window’s hinge is on the side rather than the bottom or top.

Some of the wonderful benefits of casement windows include:

  • Views: Casement windows offer a more unobstructed view compared to bay or bow windows as they typically contain fewer muntins (wood, vinyl, metal, or fiberglass pieces, usually in a grid or diamond pattern, that separate panes of glass).
  • Ventilation: Casement windows open wider than other window styles, allowing for increased airflow that will better circulate through your home.
  • Security: Casement windows latch at the sides and are much more difficult to break into.

Parts of a Casement Window

For a casement window to function properly, it contains several crucial parts:

  • Frame: The frame is where the window permanently attaches to the wall.
  • Casing: The casing is the decorative molding surrounding the frame and seals the area between the frame and the wall.
  • Sash: A sash is where glass panes are held. It can be made from wood, metal, vinyl, and other materials, as can the frame.
  • Hinges: The hinges of casement windows are needed to open and close due to their door-like design.
  • Crank: The crank is typically fixed to the bottom of the frame. It opens the casement window when it’s turned in one direction and closes when turned in the opposite direction.
  • Stays: The stays are additional hardware bars used to support the window and ensure it can’t be displaced by harsh weather.
  • Latches: The latches on casement windows offer an added layer of security, making them more difficult to break into.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are casement windows durable?

Casement windows are resilient and sturdy when closed. They’re difficult to break by accident or break into for malicious reasons, and they seal so tightly into an opening that they’re known for particularly high energy efficiency. However, the more complex operation and the way the weight hangs on the edge means a casement window can be more susceptible to breakage when it’s open.

Are casement windows safe?

Casement windows are safe for your home, locking up tight and secure against intruders, the elements, pests, and anything else that might come through unwanted. Casement windows are often considered harder to break into than other window designs used in similar applications, such as double-hung windows.

What are the differences between casement and awning windows?

A casement window refers to a window that opens on a side hinge, operating essentially like a door. Casement windows can open in or out, depending on the design. Awning windows are similar in that they operate on a single hinge, but this hinge is on the top of an awning window, and it will always open outward to create an overhang that keeps out rain and leaves.
