Opening inwards or outwards, double glazed casement windows are hinged on one side only. This enables easier cleaning and also provides plenty of airflow during the summer. Tilt and turn casement windows are also available for use when security is vital. The addition of an extra hinge allows tilt and turn double glazed windows to be opened to a limited degree. This adds extra security as they can be locked securely in place when only partly open to allow for cool air to enter the room.

For a more traditional look to complement a period house in Bishop Auckland, there are double glazed sash windows available. There are double hung versions where both sashes can be moved, and single hung designs where only one pane slides. Sash windows were not recognised for their energy efficiency during the past, but these days there is virtually nothing between the thermal losses of sash and casement windows, as modern double glazed models have alleviated this issue.
