О себеA casement door is similar in concept to a casement window: a hinged single sash (opening door leaf within a frame) or a dual sash to result in what is usually referred to as a ‘French door’. French doors are casement doors which are semi- or fully-glazed and used widely throughout Europe as a means to connect the inside with the outside, often a patio, garden, grounds, deck or balcony.
Benefits of UPVC Casement Doors
This is one of the top benefits of a uPVC casement door. Doors frames made from this material have great sealing capabilities and thus, increase thermal comfort. During the summer season, uPVC casement doors do not let hot air seep inside, keeping your internal temperatures low. In the winter season, these doors do not allow for warm air to leak outside and keep your internal temperatures optimal. This quality of uPVC casement doors reduces the strain on your heating and cooling devices and optimizes your energy bills.
uPVC casement doors barely attract dirt or grime and require minimal cleaning. You can clean these doors with the help of a clean damp cloth and some soapy water or mild detergent solution once every six months. If your home is on a particularly dusty street, clean your casement doors every month. Do not clean these frames with a metallic brush or a ball of steel wool as that may hamper the colour and finish of the frame.
Rust and Weather-Resistant
uPVC is 100% anti-corrosive, resistant to termites and also harsh weather conditions. This is especially helpful if you live in too cold or hot or humid conditions. Unlike other materials, uPVC casement doors maintain their sheen for years on end. During the rainy season, they keep the water out completely because the make of these doors provides a tight seal.
uPVC casement doors look modern and are available in various colours and finishes. These doors also provide great design flexibility and can be fabricated into any shape and thickness that suits your home’s décor. If the interior of your home has a vintage feel, whereas the exteriors are modern and of a starkly different colour tone, you can get uPVC casement door frames painted in two different colours.
We have already established how uPVC casement doors prevent leakage of cool or warm air, enhancing the thermal comfort of your home. When they reduce the leakage of air, they also decrease the absorption of sound. This is especially useful if you live on a noisy street bustling with traffic.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Casement Windows
Casement windows are ones which swing out from the side. They are often installed as part of a window installation but can be installed as a single window as well. They work well in locations where you cannot easily push a window sash up, such as above kitchen sinks or countertops. ;
Advantages of Casement Windows
Casement windows come in a large variety of designs, sizes, and materials. They work well when combined as part of a larger window installation, such as in bay, bow, or French windows.
Casement windows are one of the most energy-efficient windows. The sash creates an airtight seal against the window frame when closed making it hard for air to get through.
Casement windows are an excellent way to ventilate due to opening from the side.
Casement windows also provide unobstructed views since the window is made up of one sash.
Disadvantages of Casement Windows
You cannot install window air conditioners into casement windows due to the windows cranked outward. Air conditioners need windows which slide up and down to secure a window conditioner unit.
Casement windows, in most cases, cannot have screens or storm windows. Since the casement window opens outward screens and storm windows would get in the way and stop you from being able to open the window.
You’re somewhat limited on window sizes with casement windows due to casement windows opening outwards. The sash has to be light enough that the window frame can support the weight while open.
A sliding door is a type of door which opens horizontally by sliding, usually horizontal to a wall. Sliding doors can be mounted either on top of a track below or be suspended from a track above. Some types slide into a space in the parallel wall in the direction of travel, rather than the door sliding along the outside of the parallel wall. There are several types of sliding doors, such as pocket doors, sliding glass doors, center-opening doors, and bypass doors. Sliding doors are commonly used as shower doors, glass doors, screen doors, wardrobe doors, or in vans.
Advantages of sliding doors are the small space requirements for door-opening, and their relative ease of automation. The mechanism is also secure, since it cannot be lifted out of its hinges.Sliding doors are commonly found as store, hotel, and office entrances, used in elevators, and used as patio doors, closet doors and room dividers. Sliding doors are also used in transportation, such as in vans and both overground and underground trains. ;
What is a "Sliding Window"?
A sliding window is a window that opens by sliding horizontally along a top and bottom track in the window frame. It is somewhat similar to a double-hung window, just turned on its side. Sliding windows are available in a few different configurations to choose from, based on what would be best for your home.
A two panel or two-lite sliding window has one fixed panel of glass, and the other side is a operable sash that slides either left or right to open.
A three panel or three-lite sliding window has three panels of glass within one window frame. The middle panel is usually fixed, while both outer sashes move left or right to open the window.
Sliding windows are almost always wider than they are taller, making them a good option for areas where you have a wide window opening. Sliding windows provide more of an unobstructed view of your surroundings, making them a great choice for homes that have expansive landscapes.
Sliding windows are also easy to operate, because they can easily be opened with just the push of a finger. This means they are also a good choice for areas where the window is not as easily accessible or where space may be limited.
What is an Awning Window?
Awning windows have the sash attached across the top and open up and out like an awning. They’re horizontal, providing wide open views of the outdoors. They crank open, provide ample ventilation, and even allow you to leave the window open on rainy days since it opens outward.
On their own, awning windows are great for areas where you don’t have a lot of vertical room. But for areas with more space, awning windows can be paired with casement or double hung windows to give you panoramic views, abundant natural light, and even more ventilation.

What Are Hung Windows? What's the Difference Between Single-Hung and Double-Hung?
Hung windows, a classic architectural window style, are a popular choice, and are typically found in colonial houses, farmhouses, and other traditional-style homes. In recent years, this traditional window style has seen a surge in popularity as buyers are looking to remodel character homes. So, what exactly is the difference between Single-Hung and Double-Hung? Aesthetically, they are nearly identical, but there are some functional differences that you should note before purchasing.
Single-Hung windows have a movable bottom sash and are a popular choice suited for many home styles. They open by sliding the bottom sash up, which allows you to control the amount of incoming airflow.
Double-Hung windows have two vertically sliding sashes that tilt inwards for easy cleaning. These windows are well suited to traditional architectural styles.
Single-Hung windows feature a slideable sash, and you can open and close the bottom sash while the top sash remains stationary. Double-Hung windows feature sliding bottom and top sashes. Depending on where your window is located, it can be difficult to clean the exterior glass of a Single-Hung window. Where cleaning and maintenance are concerned, Double-Hung windows have some distinct advantages.
