What are Casement Windows?
Casement windows (also called crank handle windows, or crank windows) are usually tall and thin, opening outwards with a hand crank. They are built using a single panel of glass often without ornamentation or grilles to help maximize your favourite British Columbia view. Hinged on the left or the right side, they have easily accessible lever locks at multiple points. Their lock creates a weathertight seal proven to enhance safety, security and overall comfort in your home.
Why Choose Casement Windows?
EASY TO USE – Features a beautifully designed folding handle that is easy to operate, tucks away and doesn’t interfere with your window blinds or shades.
ELEGANCE – Our mortise-and-tenon frame and sash construction provides a timelessly traditional, hand-crafted look.
VERSATILITY – Casement windows are a common choice for above counters, cabinets or anywhere that requires a reach.
COMFORT – When fully open, casements provide the most ventilation of all window styles. When closed, they prevent air infiltration better than any other type of operating window.
HISTORICAL ACCURACY – With custom grille patterns they can mimic double-hung designs, a popular option for home renovation and restoration projects where historical accuracy is important.
