Opening inwards or outwards, double glazing casement windows are hinged on one side only. This means that they are easily cleaned, and can provide ample airflow during the summer season. If security is crucial to you, casement windows also come in a tilt and turn design. The addition of an extra hinge allows tilt and turn windows to be opened to a limited degree. As they can be locked securely in position when partially open to allow for a fresh breeze to enter the room, the security is enhanced.
