You have a choice as shown below, casement and awning windows both open outwards whilst the tilt and turn windows open inwards on both operations.
It is easy to distinguish a casement window, they all open like doors. The window is attached to its frame by hinges, either on the left or the right side.
The non-attached side is securely locked into place with latches. Even though their function resembles that of a door, the mechanism used to open them is a friction hinge.
Awnings create a graceful appearance with an easy-to-operate design similar to a casement window.
Another great advantage of this type of window is that it creates a perfect seal for excellent energy efficiency.
The rubber seal on the perimeter of the opening allows for an air tight lock around the window, This tight lock also gives great security.
TILT & TURN
Tilt position: tilts the sash inwards at the top providing excellent ventilation while maintaining security and safety.
Turn position: window sash hinges from one side enabling the window to open fully allowing maximum ventilation and means of escape in case of emergency.
Superior multiple locking bolts provide maximum security.
