SASHMENT-SPRING BALANCED SASH & OPENING CASEMENT
- Possibly the best fire escape option as the entire window can open inwards, unlike any other sash window system.
- To maintain a traditional appearance from the outside, this window has the same dimensions and appearance of a traditional box sash and is fitted the same way into a buildings reveal. However, inside the box style frame is a spring sash window, hung like a casement on Parliament hinges to allow it to open like a casement inwards in an emergency, but for day to day use it can be opened sliding up and down like a normal sash window.
- Another advantage of this type of window is the ease of maintenance – since it can open in, the outside glass panes can be easily cleaned. (Note: the opening in feature is only designed for occasional or emergency use)
