Introduction to Casement Window
An entry can be so much more than a door. Windows serve an important part in the architecture design as they bring light and views on the front, back or side of your home. Windows don’t have to be big to make a great impression. Optima 29 and Optima 38 Casement Window proofs this statement. It is the perfect model for minimalist.
What is a casement window? A casement window is a type of window where the window frame is hinged to the sash in order for it to swing open inward or outward. The characteristics of a casement window are: simple structure, flexible opening, easy cleaning and good sealing performance when closed. Its evolving designs, minimalist appeal and simple operation systems contribute it being the most widely used window type in architectural designs.
Casement windows are widely used in urban and commercial buildings, office buildings, high-end residential buildings, villas and condominiums and there are adaptable to almost every architectural style. The disadvantage is that the window width is small and the field of view is not as wide as compared to the floor-to-ceiling windows.
There are two types of opening for casement windows – inward opening and outward opening. Both have their own pros and cons. For the inner opening type of window, cleaning is convenient while the outer opening type does not occupy space when opened. On the other hand, the inner opening window will occupy part of the room and it is not convenient to open when there is a curtain whereas opening of the outer window will occupy the space outside the wall and it is easy to be damaged by strong wind. If the quality of the casement window is not good, rain water may seep through and causes damage to your window and property.
