A hinged sash that opens outward is a feature of vinyl casement windows, a particular style of window design. These windows are renowned for being strong, long-lasting and beautiful.
You can choose between opening your casement window to the left or to the right. Additionally, the casement handle’s modern shape allows it to fit flush against the window frame and not interfere with your blinds or other window coverings.
The casement window can be fully opened, which offers your space excellent ventilation and natural light.
What Are the Different Types of Vinyl Casement Windows?
- Single Casement Window: the simplest kind of casement window. It is made up of a double or triple glass pane that is hinged on one side. With the turn of a crank, it expands outward for optimal ventilation and unrestricted views.
- French Casement Window: has two casement sashes that swing outward from the center and are hinged on the sides. Similar to French doors, when both sashes are opened, they offer a roomy and unhindered access. This style is fantastic for wider apertures and better airflow.
- Awning Window: opens outward from the bottom and resembles sort of top-hung casement windows in appearance. To improve ventilation and retain privacy, they are frequently combined with other window kinds and put higher on walls.
- Casement Window Combinations: combine many window styles into a single frame. A slider window or a fixed window, for instance, could be coupled with a casement window. This enables flexibility in terms of design, use and energy efficiency.
Vinyl casement window manufacturers frequently provide custom alternatives, allowing you to select particular sizes, shapes, grid patterns and hardware finishes to complement the architecture of your home and your personal preferences.
When selecting a vinyl casement window style, take into account elements including the window’s placement, the amount of ventilation you want, your needs for energy efficiency and the overall beauty you want to create. To guarantee the quality and longevity of your windows, choose a recognised manufacturer and professional installation.
What Are the Standard Sizes for Vinyl Casement Windows?

When replacing or installing windows, one of the most crucial decisions is selecting the “right size” of a window.
Home windows are typically installed in a range of sizes that can be customized rather than following a conventional size.
In Canada, casement windows must be at least 14.25 inches wide by 18 inches tall to qualify as double or triple-glazed. This minimum exists because window makers eventually run out of room to reduce window sizes.
You can obtain double-glazed casement windows that are up to 38 inches wide by 72 inches high, which is the largest size possible. The maximum size for casement windows with triple glazing is measuring at 28 x 60 inches.
Get an exact measurement of each window opening if you want your casement windows to operate as efficiently as possible. The energy efficiency of your property can be significantly impacted by even the smallest measurement inaccuracy, which could even result in structural harm.
