Casements are our most popular window styles, and offer great versatility because they can be hinged at the top, at either side, or at the bottom. To give some examples, the biggest selling types of Swish Windows & Doors casement window include a top-hinged casement that opens over a fixed window, a single side-opening window beside a fixed pane, and a simple single opener.
With the Swish system, the casement window frames are slim with a gentle curved shape, but are also strong and insulating. What’s more they’ll never need painting.
Casements open with a single turn of a handle and you can easily control the amount of ventilation. For secure, night-time air flow there’s a handy night-vent position or you can choose a trickle-vent option. And, where a window may need to be used as an escape route, we can supply wide-opening egress hinges.

It’s important that locks, handles and hinges – even frames and glazing – do their job and protect you and your family. All Swish windows and doors conform to PAS 24: 2012 which covers enhanced security performance requirements for doors and windows in the UK. Look out for features like multi-point locking and egress hinges which allow a window to open to 90° for emergency escape.

All of our window and door profiles are covered by a ten year guarantee against manufacturing defects. Your installer will offer a guarantee on the installation. Make sure that this guarantee is “insurance-backed” and offered by a DTI approved insurer. This means that if the installer goes out of business – for any reason – you are still covered.
Most guarantees will cover defects in materials and workmanship, but always check the small print. If there is anything you’re not happy with, check it out before you sign on any dotted lines.
