What are the dimensions of the casement window?

1. Design specifications of casement windows

If it is designed to open outward, the size of the window sash is generally 750mm*1600mm, and the size of the window frame is 2400mm*2400mm;

If the size of the casement window sash designed to open inward is 1000mm*1600, the size of the window frame is 2100mm*2100mm.

2. Dimensions

The size of the general window stipulates that in a residential building, the height of the window is 1.5m, plus the height of the window sill is 0.9m, the top of the window is 2.4m away from the floor, and there is still a structural height of 0.4m.

In public buildings, the height of the window sill varies from 1.0 to 1.8m, and the height of the bottom surface of the window sash opening to the public aisle should not be less than 2.0m.

As for the height of the window, it is determined according to the requirements of lighting, ventilation, space image, etc., but we must pay attention to the rigidity of the window that is too high, and if necessary, add beams or “joints”.

In addition, when the size of the general window and the height of the sill is less than 0.8m, protective measures should be taken.

3. Aluminum casement window

Casement windows are usually made of aluminum alloy, and there are different types of aluminum alloy materials, such as 50 series, 55 series, 60 series, 70 series, etc.

The most commonly used casement windows on the market are the 60 series. According to different window designs, the specifications of casement windows are also different.

Precautions for installing casement windows?

1. Install casement windows

First, determine the installation position. The position of the window frame needs to be determined by formal measurement. Usually, the coordinate reference line and the 500 mm horizontal line on the bottom surface are used to determine the position of the window frame, and then the position line of the ink line is used to pop up.

2. Door and window sealing

The sealing strip plays a pivotal role in the quality of the seal, so be sure to ensure the quality of the sealing strip before installation to prevent it from being shoddy.

The concealed project should be accepted and sealed first, so as to avoid repeated construction of the project and affect the quality of the profile and the progress of the project.

When fixing the window frame, find a stable position, otherwise it will bring security risks to subsequent use. The nail cap of the nail should be completely nailed into the window frame, which is not only for aesthetics, but also for the safety and convenience of future use.

4. Hinge installation

What connects the window frame and the sash is the hinge, and the installation of the hinge is also a very important part.

First, mark the parts of the sash and window frame that need to be connected to the hinge, and make sure that the data is accurate when measuring.

Then pick out the hinge slot at the marked position, and finally install the hinge. combine

The position of the page slot should be precise, just enough to install the hinge, too large will affect the appearance, and too small will affect the installation and use.
