Casement replacement windows are hinged at the side and open using a crank or lever typically located at the bottom of the window frame. Most casement windows open a full 90 degrees and the classic style works well with any architectural design.
If you’re considering a casement window for your replacement window project, review the top 4 advantages below:
- Energy Efficiency
A casement window is the most energy-efficient window style because when the window is closed, the sash presses against the frame creating an airtight seal. Only a fixed frame stationary window is more energy efficient.
Casement windows are difficult to force open from the outside of your home because the crank mechanism is located inside your home.
- Vibrant Views
With a full pane of glass, casement windows provide a full view of nature, without any visual interruption that are noticeable with slider or double-hung windows.
- Exceptional Ventilation
With a hinged design, casement windows can open a full 90 degrees allowing for exceptional ventilation.
When looking at casement replacement windows, keep in mind, not all casement windows are created equal.
Some features of AHT Wisconsin Windows casement windows that are different than other replacement windows are:
- Dual arm opening mechanism
A dual arm opening mechanism reduces tension on the crank during operation and provides ease of use by reducing the stripping of gears. If you’ve ever struggled opening or closing a casement window, chances are, the window didn’t have this feature!
- 3 seals vs. the industry standard double seal
All 3 seals are constructed in a stair step approach providing individual sealing capabilities which reduce drafts in your home.
- Low profile interior screen
This maximizes the view of the glass allowing you to fully see through to the outside.
- 1 locking mechanism to control 5 locks
Not only do our casement replacement windows have 5 locks, but they are easily controlled by 1 locking mechanism. No more trying each lock position until all lock mechanisms are locked or unlocked.
