Double Glazed Casement Windows
A casement window (or casement) is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges. Casement windows are hinged at the side. (Windows hinged at the top are referred to as awning windows. Ones hinged at the bottom are called hoppers.)

This type of design is what probably comes to mind when anyone thinks about replacement double glazed windows – really, all it consists of is a window frame with one or more opening sections that are hinged on the side, at the top or at the bottom and are referred to in the trade as Casement, Swing & hoppers respectively.
Considered as one of the more versatile designs, they can be fitted into almost any size of opening, unlike sash windows or French windows which can be more suited to use when trying to create or match a particular look for your home
There is a massive range of choice when it comes to sizes, colours, design or function when it comes to casement windows and it would be very unusual to find a double glazing company that could not produce an energy efficient long lasting example of this window.
You can find them in soft-wood, hard-wood, engineered wood, UPVC, aluminium or a composite of UPVC & Aluminium.
Double or triple glazed UPVC replacement windows are extraordinarily popular in the UK and, although white is a very popular installation, there are many option to vary both the colour and the surface finish of the unit.
Points to note about installing replacement windows in the UK
Nowadays, with all windows & doors needing to be compliant with building regulations related to energy efficiency, it would be prudent to ensure you are purchasing those that are ‘up to code’ and that the company you select to fit the windows is properly accredited to ‘self-certify’ building regulation compliance and issue certificated to prove the work & product is compliant.
