The window has always been a way for people to see outside. On one side of the window is the world in various forms, and on the other side is a small and comfortable space. Even in ancient times, windows were divided into many types, and now there are more types of windows. Window opening, casement windows, sliding windows, etc., have become very common in families. But, do you know what a casement window is? Is there a difference between casement windows and sliding windows? Let us explain together.
The so-called casement window is a window that can be switched horizontally. This kind of window is defined according to how the window is opened. At present, it is widely used in various decorative places and has the advantages of large opening area, good ventilation, good sealing, sound insulation, heat preservation, and good impermeability. The inner opening type is convenient for cleaning, and the outer opening type does not take up space. The disadvantage is that the window width is small and the field of view is not wide. The opening of the outer window needs to take up space outside the wall, which is easily damaged when the wind blows; while the inner window takes up a part of the indoor space, so it is inconvenient to use screens, curtains, etc.; when opening the window, it is inconvenient to use screens and curtains. If the quality is not up to standard, it may also seep rain. Sliding window: divided into two types: left and right, up and down sliding.
Sliding windows have the advantages of not occupying indoor space, beautiful appearance, economical price, and good sealing performance. With sliding rails, it can be opened flexibly by lightly pushing. The use of large blocks of glass not only increases indoor lighting, but also improves the overall appearance of the building. The window sash is in good stress condition and is not easily damaged, but the ventilation area is limited.
The sliding window adopts the sliding rail of the window sash with pulley on the window frame. The advantage of this kind of window is that it does not take up extra space when opening and closing, and the structure is relatively simple. The disadvantage is that only 50% of the window sashes can be opened, and the air tightness is poor when closed. In recent years, there have been new technology and improved sliding windows, which can push multiple sashes to one side to fold. At the same time, there are also sliding windows to improve airtightness, but generally speaking, they still cannot achieve the thermal performance of casement windows and have high energy consumption, so such windows are rarely used in developed countries.
