What is a Casement window?
Casement windows are a type of window that is attached by hinges on the side of the frames.
When the hinges are at the top, they are called awning windows and at the bottom, Hopper windows.
Casement windows were used in the UK long before Sash windows were introduced, more often than not the glass panes were held in place with strips of lead, this type of window has been the standard for many centuries.
What is a Box Sash Window?
Sash windows are designed using one or more movable framed panels, that each holds one or numerous panes of glass.
Sash windows tend to open vertically or horizontally in a style known as Yorkshire Light. The oldest surviving Sash Windows were designed and installed in the late 17 century, windows from that era can still be restored without the need for entire replacements to be done.
Sash Windows are normally found in Georgian and Victorian properties and have the standard arrangement of three panes of glass across and two up on each sliding panel.
