What are Different Types of Casement Window Hardware?
Casement window hardware is used to aide in the proper operation of your casement window. Casement windows can be found in different locations around the home. They are often found in kitchens, above the sink and along multiple window design (such as you would find with bay windows). They are easy to operate and pretty to look at. Below are a couple different window casement hardware components.
The crank operator is used to open and close the casement window. In order to get fresh air into your home, you will need to use the crank operator and turn it clockwise to open and counter clockwise to close. The crank operator can be replaced on your casement window if it stops working. The operator comes in many different styles, colors and finishes.
Casement Window Adjusters
The adjusters come in different lengths. You can usually purchase the hardware in at least 3 different lengths to accommodate for different casement window sizes. Pay attention when you purchase the adjuster so that it fits with the type of window operation on the casement window. For example, a rod may only work with windows that swing outward and not inward. Review the packaging.
