With full top to bottom ventilation, casement windows give you unparalleled access to fresh air and outdoor views. Similar to picture windows, casement windows provide uninstructed views in any room. Casement windows are hinged at the sides, and open outward with the help of a handle. Casement windows are kept open by a casement stay, a metal bar that holds the window in the desired position. Some varieties of casement windows are operated by pushing your hands against the sashes to open the window—these are known as “push out” casement windows.
Casement windows are perfect for difficult to reach areas, like over the kitchen sink, as well as for any room where you want clear views and fresh air.
