Nothing demonstrates British architectural beauty more than Mechanically Jointed Flush Casement windows. This popular window style has been gracing our homes for centuries and their distinctive appearance makes them an integral part of today’s British architecture.
The window style gets its name by a combination of the window’s aesthetics and its method of production. To explain: Mechanically jointed windows describes the joint between each corner of the window frame. Traditionally, craftsmen would spend time and considerable skill handcrafting these corner welds which became known as a mechanical joint. It’s this beautiful attention to detail, typically seen on timber windows, that gives the window its distinctive, traditional appearance.
When it comes to the name Flush Casement this describes the window style. To explain: With Flush Casement windows, when the window or sash (otherwise known as the opener) is closed, its sits ‘flush’ within the frame which creates a flat surface on the outside of the window.
Flush Casement windows are both a stunning and timeless window that can be used on a wide range of properties to deliver an exceptional authentic finish. And by adding in their distinctive mechanically jointed method of manufacture you have a true British window design.

After all, the appeal of these windows is in their traditional aesthetics: Choose wisely and you have windows that will look stunning for many years and give you the character of yesteryear.

In windows, the energy efficiency of a window is measured by a ‘U-value’. Put simply, this measures how well the heat is transferred by the entire window i.e. the frame, sash and glass combined. The lower the U-value, the more insulated the window unit is and therefore the better the window will retain the interior’s heat in the winter and conversely, keeping the heat out during the summer. Genesis Flush Casement Windows have a U value of 1.2 W/m2K for double glazed and 0.9 W/m2K when triple glazed too, which sums up the quality of our windows.
