Opening outwards or inwards, double glazing casement windows are hinged on one side only. This gives plenty of airflow in the warm summer months and enables easier cleaning. They're also available in a tilt and turn design which adds an additional degree of security where required. Tilt and turn windows have a supplementary hinge to be able to open slightly. Because they can be locked firmly in position when partly open to allow for a fresh breeze to enter the room, the security is improved.

There are also options available for double glazed sash windows for a more traditional appearance to complement a period house in Galashiels. These can be single hung, where only one sash is moveable, or double hung, where both sashes can be slid open.
