A casement is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges at the side. They are used singly or in pairs within a common frame, in which case they are hinged on the outside. Casement windows are often held open using a casement stay.
A sash window or hung sash window is made of one or more movable panels, or "sashes", that form a frame to hold panes of glass, which are often separated from other panes by glazing bars, also known as muntins. (Sash windows slide vertically and are so called because the weights are concealed in a box case).
Flush sash windows are described when the window or sash is closed and it sits flush within the frame creating a flat surface on the outside. These windows are increasing in popularity and create the effect of a more traditional window design. The style creates the old timber feel to a property but now as modern alternative in uPVC.
Tilt & Turn
A tilt and turn has two options to open. To tilt and ventilate a property or by turning to offer a means of fire escape. In the tilt position, the window tilts inwards into the room whilst remaining fixed at the base. The turn function will fully open the window in to the room and also gives easy access to clean the window
