Timber French Windows
French casement windows are perfect for those who want unobstructed views
French casement windows differ from standard casement windows, as they do not have a central post (also called a ‘mullion’), and therefore produce a clear view to the outside when both windows are open. French casement windows are a popular choice for those seeking to utilise ‘feature windows’ as part of their interior design scheme.
French casement windows are often used on second-floor dormer windows or in first-floor windows where the opening isn’t large enough to meet current escape regulations, however, they can also be used in place of a French door with reduced section sizes giving more light through the window due to there being less timber.
French Casement Windows operate like a French door, making use of a primary and secondary leaf, meaning that both casement sashes can be opened. These windows are still fitted with an espagnolette locking system and fitted with a handle to each opener.
