Casement windows are hinged on the side and open outward to the left or right, allowing you to catch breezes and direct the flow of fresh air into your home. Usually taller than they are wide, their entire sash opens to provide top-to-bottom ventilation. This also makes them a frequent choice for use as egress windowsones that can be used as an emergency exit.
Andersen® A-Series casement windows are a good choice for placement above sinks or countertops, because they open by cranking a handle, which is easier than leaning forward while lifting the sash of a casement window. For the authentic appearance of traditional architecture, A-Series casement windows feature a tall bottom rail and the look of mortise-and-tenon joints.
