Awning and casement windows add an elegant, traditional look to your home.
Awning and casement windows are hinged in different places - awnings are hung from the top, while casements open from the side.
Awning windows open from the bottom, while casement windows swing open from the side. Both are practical, flexible and easy to use. They offer excellent ventilation control - you can open them to suit your comfort level and secure them in place with a window stay.
Most casement windows are vertical rectangles that have a single pane of glass. They also tend to have simple styling that sets them apart from more decorative window types.
The element that makes a casement window stand out is the operating mechanics which means instead of sliding up and down, like a hung window, or side to side, like sliders, casement windows are hinged at the side, and they open outward similar to a car doors.
With awning and casement windows there’s more scope for custom sizes and configurations. So you can define and select your perfect window design. Talk to your local Fairview manufacturer for more information.
Awning windows can be left partly open when it’s raining – so they’re great in winter too.
For added security and peace of mind, ask about multi-point locking for your awning windows.
Awning windows are particularly advantageous when placed high up in a bathroom, kitchen or laundry. Because of their design, they allow hot air to escape reducing condensation.
Add a window ventilator to keep air circulating while windows and doors remain closed. Another way to ventilate your home while at work or away.
