The casement windows range, from the Chase Window Company, are manufactured to exceptionally high standards and are manufactured from choices in uPVC, aluminium, timber and now timber aluminium clad. The casement window is the most popular choice with home owners due to its versatility in styles, sizes and production materials. Choices come in double and triple glazed options in most systems.
What is a casement window?
A casement window refers to the fact that the window is attached to its frame by one or more hinges at the side and opens outwards like a door. The basic casement window opening and closing mechanism is most often by means of a lockable handle. A casement window is the earliest form of a moveable window and has stood the test of time.
However, advances in technology has allowed modern casement windows to be manufactured with security in mind together with heat retention and noise reduction, enhancing their overall appeal.
uPVC casement windows
A very popular choice where replacement windows are required. uPVC casement windows are strong, rigid and virtually maintenance free, except perhaps where hinges and handles are concerned. All moveable mechanisms will at some point need a little cleaning and oiling but this is an absolute minimal task. The versatility of uPVC allows for the custom manufacture of virtually any size window for any type of property.

Aluminium casement windows
Aluminium is a lightweight but very durable metal, with the added advantage of being very strong. Its strength allows for less overall frame area and more glass together with a superior slim-line look. Aluminium frames may be the best choice when replacing old steel frames or where larger than average windows are required. There are also around 200 powder coated RAL colours to choose from.

Timber casement windows
Traditional timber casement windows are the natural choice and with a life expectancy of over 60 years, can often out-perform uPVC. Timber from renewable sources is kinder to the environment and is carbon neutral. Chase Window Company manufactures quality timber windows in any size and in virtually any style imaginable. Colours are offered in any RAL or Farrow and Ball colour with dual colour options proving ever popular now.
