Casement

Casement windows operate via hinges placed on the side of the frame. European casement windows typically swing inwards, for easy cleaning, while North American windows typically swing outwards. This style has excellent performance potential, and can be designed and built to meet the requirements of any certification. For many producers, this style is a fundamental classic which never goes out of fashion- its straightforward design means it is often the first style a shop will build when setting up to make windows.

Hardware

Hardware refers to all the metal components of a window or door. We're always say "design begins with the hardware" because the design and functionality of a window depends on the hardware choices (and thus, the style) that's build. The overall design of the end product is closely linked to the hardware decisions made in the initial design. Think about the different mechanical attributes of a window- how it opens and closes, how and where it locks- these are all dependent on hardware.

Each window style- whether a casement, tilt-and-turn, double-hung, or any other style- has its own hardware systems, including locks, handles, hinges and other limiting mechanisms to control window sash movements.

Weight bearing capacity, durability, security and other ratings are important factors in choosing especially for larger, heavier window designs. Hardware also should have acceptable water penetration and air tightness testing results for particular applications.
