Casement Windows

A casement window is attached to its frame by one or more hinges. Casement windows are hinged at the side or vertical axis. When hinged horizontally they are referred to as Projection or hopper windows. Casement windows 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.

In the many areas internationally, casement windows were the most common house window before the sash window was introduced. They are opened with a crank, lever, or cam handle, which is placed around hand height or at the bottom and serves as a window lock. A crank, stay, or friction hinge is necessary when the window opens outward, to hold the window in position despite wind.
