WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN STYLE TILT AND TURN WINDOWS?
Casement windows are the most energy-efficient when compared with other operable window types, like double-hung or sliding windows. They, either open with a crank or swing to open, seal four sides tightly to the door frame. Also, they don't rely on a track to slide open, so there is almost no air to flow once these windows are closed. Casement windows are capable to open to the full, allowing for obstructed views and a great amount of ventilation. Casement windows swing open inside or outside in a horizontal direction. Among those types, two typical casement windows are American-style casement windows ( crank casement) and European-style tilt turn windows (tilt turn windows). Here are some side-by-side comparisons between those two window types.
