CASEMENT 30.5/38 | TOP AND SIDE HUNG

Aluminium Top Hung Casement windows are the most common and economical window available.  The aluminium top hung windows are constructed using an outer frame and a hinged “sash”.  The sash projects outwards.  In a top hung window the friction stay is on the top of the outer frame, thereby allowing the bottom to swing out secured by steel friction stays.

EURO CASEMENT  | TILT AND TURN

This window is effectively three windows in one: it serves as a fixed window, an in swing casement window and a hopper window.

So in one configuration, you have a flexible window that swings as you would expect. This orientation also allows for easy cleaning on both sides of the glass while doubling as a good exit window in emergencies.

In the other configuration, the tilt allows in breezes, helps deflect rain and locks into place against potential intrusions. Heat escapes through the top and air enters and exits around the edges, facilitating draft-free ventilation. In other words: you can leave the window open when you are away without worrying too much about security or the weather.

When you switch back to the locked position, you can also feel the multi-point locking mechanisms click into place (4 point locks). This provides further security and a completely air-tight weather seal. When the window is in this closed position, you are also left with an uninterrupted view through a single pane of glass, versus something like a traditional two-piece sash window which may split your view down the center.

And as if all of these functions were not enough already: each of the tilt-and-turn functions is effectively reversible, depending on your design desires and spatial needs.
