What is It?

Casement windows are designed to offer ventilation and airflow to any location they’re installed in. This is thanks to their typical side-hinged positioning. The adaptable design means homeowners in Bromley or Croydon can have the casement design to open out from the top or the bottom of the window frame.

In most cases, casement windows are hinged to the side of the frame and created to swing outwards. They are held open on a casement stay or modern casement friction hinge or crank mechanism. Whether the London property is traditional or modern, casement windows can perfectly complement the overall architecture and style of the building.

Customisable Design

The incredibly accommodating design of casement windows allows them to be easily installed into any South London home. You can choose where you want the window to open out, or choose a fixed, decorative casement window, which will just let light into your property. Each of these windows can be decorated in a selection of colour and woodgrain foil options, with decorative glazing also available. This allows you to truly get a window that celebrates your style.

21st-Century Locks

Modern casement windows are fitted with some of the finest locks in the industry. This gives the South London homeowner complete peace of mind that their property is secure. The multi-chambered uPVC frame itself offers excellent levels of strength and rigidity. When this is combined with the panes of glazing and the locks, it will create a high level of security across the whole frame.

Multi-point locking is fitted across the frame of many casement windows as standard. This will eliminate any potential weak spots that could otherwise be exploited by would be intruders. By choosing modern casement designs for your South London home, you can have complete peace of mind your property has the best protection.

The Ideal Replacement

Unlike the wood casement windows they seek to replace, modern uPVC designs won’t give the South London homeowner the same high maintenance issues. The uPVC frame won’t warp, bow, twist, rot, flake or crack, even after regular exposure to the changeable weather. The only maintenance required for these windows is to give the frame an occasional wipe down with a damp cloth.
