Casement windows are traditional and elegant window style that were common before the sash window was introduced. Used singly or in pairs within a common window frame. Casement windows are side hung and opened with a crank, lever or cam handle. A casement stay is used to hold the window in an open position. One of the biggest benefits is that the window opens inwards or outward 90 degrees much like a door.
The most vulnerable parts of a casement window, apart from the glass, are the hinges. Hinges can be damaged in as a result of environmental pollution, corrosion from salt air deposits, stress placed on the window itself and a lack of general maintenance. Rusting is a common problem when the hinges aren’t cleaned regularly and can lead to the hinges breaking and the window falling If the windows aren’t treated correctly for exposure to rain & water, it can lead to the timber frames swelling, rotting and falling apart.

Awning windows are a traditional favourite and have a long history of use in both residential & commercial settings. The elegance of the uninterrupted pane of glass is combined superbly with the sturdy frame, making the awning suitable for almost all conditions.
Awning windows are a variation on the casement windows, instead of opening vertically inwards or outwards to the left and right, the awning window is top hung with hinges, opening outwards horizontally. They can be stacked, with several in one frame or combined with fixed glass. Their versatility makes them a popular choice when seeking to improve ventilation while remaining both secure and protected from the elements outside.
Awning windows can be pushed out as far as you want to give you full control of the size of the opening. Friction stays hold the window in place and allow the window to be opened in one motion. Chain winders are also common on awning windows and allow the window to be opened. The winder handle is connected by a length of rigid chain to the bottom part of the window, helping to keep the window open to the exact amount you want. Both friction stays and chain winders can become stiff due to corrosion from exposure to rain, salt air, environmental pollution and debris especially if this is not cleaned and lubricated on a regular basis. This causes the window to become difficult to open and close with the window become stuck in the open position.
Modern Awning windows come with multi-point locks and can be sash restricted, so the opening is limited to opening 100-120mm making them a safe option if you have young children.
