What are casement windows?
Casement windows are some of the most commonly used windows in the UK. Even though sash windows have a greater prevalence overall, there’s no denying the fact that casement windows are another classic solutions that will work great with most UK homes.
When it comes to what they are exactly, casement windows, also known as side-hung windows, consist of a sash that is attached to the frame on a hinge that’s located on its side. Because of this, it can be opened in a similar way a door can - by rotating the sash on the hinge.
They’re a fantastic solution if you want something that’s simple, traditional, and practical, guaranteed to help bring in lots of rustic charm into your home.
Casement windows have a long history, dating back to the 16th century. At the time, the technology available made the process of manufacturing glass panes very difficult and complex, so it took the windows a while to take the form they currently have.
In the past, frames were usually made using cast iron with lead lattice patterns combining smaller pieces of glass together within the sash. As the Victorian era came along, timber started to be used more commonly utulised, with ornate shutters becoming just as commonplace, serving as a defining feautre of the windows.
