Casement windows are one of the most popular window styles in the world today. This system has been in existence since the beginning of the 18th century. First constructed out of iron and true leaded divisions, the casement window was only for the very wealthy. However, the industrial revolution changed this due to the introduction of mass production of glass and wooden frames. Today wooden casement windows are still very popular, but will rot, warp, possibly succumb to termites, and require stain or paint maintenance. To avoid these flaws all Solar Innovations® casement windows are made from an aluminum thermal frame, which helps with insulation and protection from the elements.
The glazing used in casement windows is insulated tempered glass. There are unlimited choices for the specific glass variation used on your project. A practical choice for glass is a LowE tint. This type of glass helps minimize the amount of UV-rays from penetrating a room. The reduction in UV-rays slows down fading of objects within the room, such as furniture and window treatments. Apply grid work to the windows to achieve a more classic or traditional.
Cleaning the outside of casement windows on second floors is always an obstacle. Solar Innovations® offers an easy-clean technology which operates when engaging the hinge and the window slides to the left slightly, allowing your hand to move the frame and the jamb and clean the window’s exterior. Motorization options are available on several models.
Install & Repairs
Finally, an installation team member can come to your project and repair broken windows. Should the window be beyond repair, Solar Innovations® can manufacture a new window, remove the old one, and complete the installation of the new window. Depending on the scope of your project, there are also “do-it-yourself” installation kits available for those who wish to buy factory direct and complete the installation themselves.
Screen options are available on a wide variety of our door and window products. These screen options help keep the pests at bay while still allowing you to view the outdoors.
Ease of Operation
Solar Innovations’ systems offer single-handed operation and move smoothly with little effort. Much of our hardware is manufactured in house which allows us to control lead times.
The thermal break separates the aluminum and minimizes conductivity of heat and cold from the inside to the outside to ensure a structure’s interior remains comfortable at any time of year.
