Casement Windows

Windows can come in many different shapes and sizes – but they also are able to distinguish themselves from one another by the way in which they operate. While this may seem trivial to some, it plays a big part in the overall appeal and satisfaction of a property. This can be clearly seen when it comes to casement windows.

What Are Casement Windows?

Casement windows are a popular style of windows that swing outwards, much like a door, to open. They are hinged on one side and can either swing inward or outward, but the most common design in Australia allows them to extend outward, providing a clear view and maximum ventilation.

These windows are operated using a crank or handle, offering homeowners more control over how much the window opens.

The design of casement windows makes them an excellent choice for a variety of settings where fixed windows wouldn’t work, allowing for them to be installed in hard-to-reach places, such as over kitchen sinks or in bathrooms, where ventilation and ease of use are paramount.

The mechanism that allows them to swing outwards ensures that they do not take up interior space when open, making them ideal for areas where internal space is at a premium.

Whether you’re renovating an existing property or choosing windows for a new build in Perth, casement windows provide both aesthetic appeal and practical benefits.

Why Install Casement Windows?

The diversity and flexibility-of-use that comes with casement windows make them a great option for any home. But if you’re still thinking it over, here are some reasons casement windows may be right for you:

  • Consistently energy efficient – Being a window that fully seals when closed, casement windows make for a good option if energy efficient glass windows are high on your criteria. Full seals mean less air escapes from appliances such as air conditioning, saving you energy and money in the long term.
  • Easy to use and operate – Since casement windows don’t include any electrics within them, their operation is straightforward. Using a manual opening and closing mechanism, they can be used by anyone with ease. Just make sure there is ample room outside as the windows open outward.
  • Able to provide range of ventilation – Casement windows make the most of their hinged design by allowing for different levels of opening angles. This allows you to use the window to whichever level you need – this can be for ventilating cooking fumes, or simply allowing a cool breeze of fresh air to enter. This versatility is especially beneficial in Perth’s climate, where controlling the flow of air can help to naturally cool your home during the hot summer months or keep it snug and warm in winter.
  • Can add to any interior design – Our casement windows are available in a range of design options, meaning they can be added to any pre-existing home without the need to redesign. There are many different casement window configurations too, meaning you’re sure to find something to match your property.

Application of Casement Windows

Casement windows are effective enough to have a large number of applications. Most of these are residential, but there are some commercial ones as well.

With their distinctive ability to swing open like a door, provide an elegant solution for a variety of architectural styles. In Perth’s diverse climate, the application of casement windows, especially when considering double glazing or timber options, offers both functional and aesthetic benefits to any home or building.

Residential Applications

Thanks to their ability to ventilate at varying levels, casement windows make a great addition to a kitchen. As mentioned above, being able to easily get hot cooking air and fumes out of the kitchen quickly is good to avoid potentially overheating the area or causing a smoke alarm to go off.

Another area a ventilating casement window may come in handy is in the bathroom. Warm showers create steam that can cause fogging and condensation on the rest of the bathroom when there is nowhere for the steam to escape to. A casement window allows steam to properly ventilate and keep the bathroom from fogging up.

Commercial Applications

Similar applications to the residential ones can be made in a commercial space as well. In terms of cooking, kitchens in cafes and restaurants can make good use of casement windows. They can also work well in spaces that have workplace bathrooms in office buildings with their excellent ventilation.

Their energy efficiency and ability to let in natural light mean they stand out for businesses among other window types for being an effective yet simple solution.

Double Glazing Advantages

Double glazed casement windows are a popular choice among Perth residents due to their superior insulation properties. The double glazing technique involves two layers of glass with a space between them, creating an insulating barrier that significantly reduces heat transfer.

This means that double glazed casement windows can help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, leading to noticeable energy savings. Additionally, the double glazing provides excellent noise reduction, making it ideal for homes in busy or noisy areas.

Timber Casement Windows

For those seeking a classic or traditional aesthetic, timber casement windows offer timeless beauty. Timber, being a natural insulator, complements the insulating properties of double glazed units, providing an efficient barrier against the elements.

The warmth and character of timber casement windows can enhance the architectural charm of heritage homes, while also fitting seamlessly into modern designs. The versatility of timber allows for a range of glazing options, ensuring that your windows and doors can be customised to meet your specific needs.

Glazing Options

Beyond double glazing, casement windows can be equipped with a variety of glazing options to suit different requirements.

Tinted glass can reduce glare and UV exposure, while low-emissivity (low-E) glass coatings improve energy efficiency by retaining heat in winter and repelling heat in summer. Safety glass is another option, offering increased security and peace of mind.

Versatility in Windows and Doors

Casement windows are versatile in both application and design, making them suitable for a wide range of windows and doors throughout your home. Whether you’re looking for a window option that offers maximum ventilation, unobstructed views, or simply a stylish addition to your property, casement windows can be tailored to meet those needs.
