As Casement Windows are used extensively in both contemporary and traditional architecture, there is a broad range of hardware and finished available.
For a more modern look, the casement window can be open and closed by a single or dual arm operator. These operators open and close with incredible ease and allow the window to open up to 90°. The handle flips fully in and recesses into the cover to give a streamlined and contemporary look. The arm and cover can be removed easily for painting and staining and the cover and arm come in a range of colours.
For a more traditional look, you have the option of using a casement stay with or without a teardrop fastener. A casement stay doesn’t have a wind out function, the window is manually opened and closed and fastened when the desired opening is reached. The range of the opening depends on the length of the stay and the position of the pins. They can be mounted at the side of the window or at the base of the window. There is also a wide range of fasteners available in different finishes.
