Things You Should Know Before Buying That Casement Windows by HsLBroker(m): 3:02pm On Apr 21, 2016
Buying or considering replacing your traditional windows with casement windows, these guides may be advantageous to you as a nairalander or a non nairalander.

We are all here to learn and reading this article now will give you an insight to some important things about Casement window which is one of the best most popular modern type of windows in World, other types of windows includes basement, bay, awning and louvers windows.

So let get started, let us share our ideals and experience as well.

Awning windows and Basement windows also look like casement windows but they are partially different in terms of installation but louvers windows are entirely different from all.

Casement windows are mostly made of aluminum.

In Nigeria we have different companies importing these products for making of these windows by the process called fabricating.

Tower Standard Aluminum is the best of all types of products imported to Nigeria, we also have thick imported.

The standard glass thickness for residential building is 5mm, you can choose to have a transparent glass, black, white or cream but all of this is a choice, but for security purpose the best one is the type that you can see people outside when you are inside in the afternoon or morning, but they can’t see you, they will only be looking at themselves as if it was a mirror they are seeing and in the night they can hardly see what is inside even when the light is on in the night expect the person is as close to the window as skin is closer to the bones in our body.

Casement windows are usually hung vertically with an opening window hinged from the left or right side of the frame. The opener can be inward or outward, but is more commonly installed with the opening element moving in an outward motion. Windows which open inwardly are usually seen in residential apartments or buildings where security and safety are an issue of concern or paramount.

Due to the simple construction and stout, ruggedness, staunch and sturdy frame, casement windows are known to stand the test of time, compare to all major types of windows, without repairs or replacement.

The Crank is the controller locker of the opening and closing of the window unit, if the crank is not well fix or attach, or the material use is not standard, then the crank is likely to fail at a very short time.

The biggest market for these casement windows products is at Aluminum Village, Dopemu close to Egbeda in Lagos, Nigeria.

Casement windows can be embedded with net, and burglary so there is no need of doing a separate burglary proof or net, when you are considering casement windows for your project, though there are some people that love to have their casement windows and net embedded together while they do a separate burglary that will be install separately but at the end you will end up spending more money than you need to spend on a single window that will have a casement, burglary and net embedded together.

If you are considering the casement, burglary and net embedded in the iron rod that will be use inside the burglary pipe is 16mm.

Important things to consider are Reasonable Price, Efficiency, Zero Noise Cancellation, Available in Different Designs and Color, Ventilation.

Reasonable Price
Casement windows are one of the best priced windows types, I can categorically tell you that a casement windows measuring 4ft x 4ft or 1.2m x 1.2m with burglary and net embedded together is around N31, 000 to N32, 000 depend on the seller right now, without burglary is between N27, 000 to N28, 000 plus.

Efficiency
Casement windows are one of the most energy efficient windows, the sash which is the framework in which panes of glass are set in the window, when closed form a seal around the entire windows frame, reducing or zero cancelling the amount of Air Leakage which can pass between the inside and the outside space, so your air conditioners can attach uppermost coolest of the inside house.


Zero Noise Cancellation

Zero Noise penetration or cancellation from the outside space is another added value for you when you install a casement windows, so whatever you are saying inside your room will not leak outside and whatever noise outside can’t come inside especially when you leave beside a church or a mosque, please remember I’m an Atheist, lol.

Available in Different Designs and Color
Casement windows is available in various variety of finishes and colors designs with range of accessories such as chrome, vinyl or brass crank handles, you can also add a range of optional extra such as surface grills and lead grills this makes the casement windows more attractive to the eye and less plain looking like sliding windows.


Ventilation
Casement windows provide good ventilation and usually allow two way ventilation methods, one which allows you to open the windows full and the other which allows you to open the windows by a way of centimeters instead. Either of this option is good for letting air into your house, particularly in the hotter dry weather or summer season like the westerner use to say.

Noticing that all of the above is about the benefits of casement windows but there is only one disadvantage of casement windows if is not properly taking care of, and that is crank.

Cranks need to be fitted or fixed properly with the best materials so that it can last or stand the test of time.

An impressive and very useful synopsis.

A question, how does a client decide on casement style from some of the choices you showed.

Is it simply by aeshetics or does size dictate or lend itself to a particular style?

Once again, thanks for taking the time to make this educative post.

This is a very good post.
I will like to make casement windows with double glass. Say 5mm glass each. This is similar to casement windows in UK required for absolute noise cancellation. The sash should be able to contain double glass conveniently with rubber seals on both sides of each glass to eliminate transmission of external vibrations. Kindly let me know how much this would cost for A-1, A-2 & A-3 casement windows.

A good price and a proof of previous excellent work could earn you a contract. Please best price only.

Re: Things You Should Know Before Buying That Casement Windows by Reference(m): 7:17am On Apr 22, 2016
My issue or challenge with windows is the 'thing' called 'protectors', embedded metal grills that make the building quite frankly look like a cage or gaol.

My question is, why haven't architects, builders and designers come up with aesthetic solutions to window openings that guarantee both security and safety. How many lives will be lost to these so called protectors when fire calls.

My advice: Just as we have evolved to remove protectors from doors by the introduction of the 'armoured' door, why can't we have armoured windows like we have for cars, bank cubicles and doors to replace the so called protectors.

windows are one of the most important parts of any home, especially when adorned with an elegant curtain.
a floor-to-ceiling curtain can always create the illusion of a high-leveled home

@HsLBroker, I disagree with you that Tower Aluminium products are the best in the country.

Have you tried NIGALEX or EBM products?

I have used Nigalex Aluminium products severally and can tell you Tower products don't match up to Nigalex products in quality, thickness and finishing.

As for EBM, I've never used their products but, I've seen them used and in my opinion, they are way better than Tower products.

Kindly do another research and some sampling.

Nice write-up and I hope it is original.

Thanks.

An insightful post, thanks so much. But how is the net attached, if from inside, I guess there'll be a little opening to allow for space to open the window?

And most importantly to me; there is a God, and I'll like you start acknowledging that. Thanks smiley

This is a modernized type of 'jalousie window'. That wooden window usually seen in old houses with a design like a Louvre.
