Casement Windows

Information on Casement Windows

The design for casement windows isn't new - the style was developed during medieval times and used at different points in architectural history. Casement windows were often used in later revival styles like Spanish Colonial or English Tudor. 


A casement window has several parts. The window frame is the permanent outer edge of the window attached to a wall. It's often surrounded by casing, decorative moulding that covers the area between the window frame and the wall into which it has been mounted. The sash is the part of the window that moves and holds glass panes. Window frames and sashes can be made out of many materials. Wood, metal, or vinyl are popular choices.


Many casement windows have horizontal hardware bars called stays that support the window when it is open and prevent wind from shifting it around. Some also have latches that secure the window when it is closed. When the latch is connected, the window won't open. The sash has hinges on one side that enable it to open. Usually at the bottom of a window is a crank handle. When the handle is turned in one direction, the window opens. When it turns in the opposite direction, the window closes.
