Casement Windows; what does the word casement mean and where did it come from?
You would think and maybe expect, that a company supplying and installing them for over 30 years would have a definitive answer.
Well, as it transpires, there isn’t very much evidence to suggest where the term came from. The phrase casement window seems to have landed around the 18th century, when they replaced older stone mullioned windows. Originally the frames would have been crafted by Blacksmiths.
Unlike 18th century casement windows, Brackenwood’s modern options are made from uPVC, Aluminium and Timber. The most popular designs are available in many styles and finishes, making it easy to find an option for your home at a price you can afford.
With Energy efficient glazing, unique Q-Lon weather seal and multi-point locking available on Signature & Signature Plus window systems, it is the best casement window ever. It can be defined by the outward opening operation of the window. A casement window is available in many configurations, with thousands of colour choices.
Popular because of its timeless beauty and ability to grace any home, designers and manufactures have continued to evolve the options for this window. With almost unlimited design configurations, the casement is the window of choice for the majority of UK homes. Additional features such as textured foils, unlimited colours, high security, a multi-chamber profile, mock horns, astragal bars, and Georgian leading really do make the casement window an all-round great.
The flexibility offered when part of a window opens out is endless. Opening outward gives lots of unrestricted space for fire escape and cleaning. When it comes to home improvements the multi-chamber windows offer a great choice in quality with huge energy saving benefits too. Find out how you and your family can benefit.
