Casement Windows | What You Need To Know

What Are Casement Windows?

A casement window is a window sash that is hinged on one side only and opens inwards or outwards. Casement windows are popular across Ireland as they are a very convenient design that directs a lot of airflow into your home. This window can be a single stand-alone window design or used in a combination with other windows to get the stunning appearance and light into your home.

The main advantages of casement windows are:

  • Suitable for both traditional and modern Irish home styles.
  • Design flexibility and ease of use.
  • Create wide openings to infuse your home with fresh air.
  • Quality built casement windows are excellent for enhancing your homes energy efficiency as there are less moving parts.
  • Easier to meet building regulations as they can be used as a means of a fire escape.

What Material Should You Use?

We at Signature believe that the best material types for casement windows are either wood or aluminium clad wood. These two styles of window materials allow you to achieve beautiful slim profiles without sacrificing on performance.

Engineered Wood

Here at Signature, we believe that wood is still the most suitable and sympathetic material for Irish homes. When it comes to appearance, wood always ticks the box for its natural beauty, grains and texture.
