Casement windows, also known as right, left, hopper, or awning swing windows can be the most efficient of window types since it’s easy to seal them like a refrigerator door. They also open 100% for better ventilation, unlike hung windows that only open 50%. Casements are predominant in European style architecture like Tudor and seldom found on classic Victorian variations. Casement sash themselves are almost identical to their brothers in double hung windows. Casements use the same stile dimensions as double-hungs. Their bottom and top rails are typically the same as those on a double-hung as well. As with all our sash, the profiles are historic ogee design with deep shadow lines in and out. Again, like all our sash, casements are available with all the muntin and glass configurations found under our window solutions page.
We offer a variety of glass types in any shape you need including; highly efficient and space saving Spacia Vacuum Insulated Glass, regular insulated glass, monolithic glass, and wavy glass.
There have only been a handful of predominant sash molding profiles from 1865 on. The most common profile and our standard is the “Roman Ogee”, while other profiles are available.
Our use of insulated glass, our own Window Logic weather stripping system, and high quality constant force balancing systems provide the efficiency of modern windows with historical accuracy.
We maintain historical aesthetics by setting glass 7/8″ deep into the sash from the interior to create a shadow line that helps provide character. Most modern manufacturers ignore this crucial detail.
Heirloom Ultima Windows are unquestionably the most historically accurate window on the market with contemporary performance. See how Accoya wood and VIG combine to satisfy both preservationist and conservationists.
Magnum Windows are Heirloom’s original product and identical to the Ultima except the Magnum utilizes standard IG (Insulated Glass) which makes the sash thicker. See why it’s sometimes the best option.
Heirloom Classic windows are the classic historic replica window with either standard double strength glass or even wavy glass. The Classic is the right choice if True Divided Lite construction is required and it is available with or without Heirloom’s proprietary invisible weather-stripping system.
