Timber French Windows

Shaped French dormer 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.
