Casement and awning windows are hinged and open and close with a crank, offering 100 percent airflow. Picture windows do not open, but provide for light while keeping the weather out.
WASCO’s 1400 series casement, awning and picture windows are the finest outswing casement windows available in North America. These windows are hinged either vertically (casement) or at the top (awning) and open and close with a crank, offering 100 percent airflow. They offer superior air infiltration and thermal performance to double hung and slider windows. Casements can stand alone, or are often on either side of a picture window.
- Three seals: An outer dust seal, a secondary seal to prevent air infiltration around the operating hardware and a primary compression seal
- The vinyl replacement windows and new construction windows feature heavy weight, thick-walled Rehau RAU-PVC extrusions with multiple chambers in the sash and frame. The chambers dramatically reduce heat transfer and improve structural rigidity and eliminate the need for foam filling with its risk of weld contamination or drainage interference. Moreover, the extrusions feature pockets for galvanized steel reinforcement when necessary.
- The picture window matches appearance of casement perfectly.
- Cardinal LoE 180 Solar gain with Super Spacer® glass is standard for the best performance out of a dual pane in Wisconsin’s climate. Optional Cardinal LoE3 provides solar control if needed. Triple pane glass, with an overall thickness of 1 3/8”, is available in solar gain and LoE3 variants.
- American-made hinges, operators and multi-point locks.
- Available in white and almond vinyl, with three optional wood grain interiors.
- Custom exterior colors are available.
