In the UK, casement windows were most common before the Sliding Sash window was introduced (circa. 17th century). The traditional casement window typically had one or two sashes being side hung on butt hinges to an outer frame. They would have originally opened inwards!. By the start of the Victorian era it was common practice to have the sashes opening outwards. Casement windows were held open using a casement stay, and held securely closed using a cranked handle fixed to the leading edge of the sash.
Our Heritage Casement window is primarily designed to fit into Conservation area’s and Grade II listed building extensions and can be considered for fitting into Grade II buildings, but will require approval by the Local Authority Conservation officer.
