Features of PVCu casement windows

Posted by Framexpress on 11/05/2022

Casement windows are one of the most contemporary and convenient style of windows for homes in the UK. With their style and design being extremely versatile, they can be used on virtually any property, whether it’s a traditional home or modern new build.

What is a PVCu casement window?

They are attached to a frame by one or more hinges which open the window outwards away from the home. This style of window also has lots of different configurations where it can be opened from the top or the side or even go for a fixed option where the window can’t be opened. This allows homeowners to design windows that best suit their lifestyle and home.

  • – Side hung

Side hung openings are generally the most popular style that homeowners opt for as they are easy to open and offer excellent ventilation. They can even be angled slightly to just have a breeze entering the home or opened fully to maximise the amount of air entering the home.

  • – Top hung

Windows that are hinged at the top are a perfect option for wet climates as they are able to keep out the rain. This means that homeowners can still have a window open when its raining as it won’t come inside the home.

  • – Fixed casement

This style is not designed to open, however some will have a mock sash to fit in with the style of the surrounding widows that do open.
