Casement windows are easily opened with a crank outwards to the left or the right. These hinged windows operate by a turn of a crank in an operating mechanism. This style of window provides open views and full ventilation. Casements also deliver superior energy efficiency and weather resistance.
A casement window is hinged at the side and opens outward like a door. Screens are placed on the inside of the window, where they're more protected from the elements. The hand crank allows you to open the window to allow in fresh air.
If you're installing windows over a sink, counter-top or appliance, a casement window with a crank can be the perfect solution.
