A tilt and turn window can both tilt inwards at the top, like a hopper window, or open inwards from hinges at the side. The tilt position provides draft-free ventilation and rain protection. In the turn position, Tilt & Turn windows act as casement windows, swinging their full glass area open.
Tilt & Turn windows are made from strong and lightweight aluminium profiles. They can accommodate large expanses of glass with slim frames for maximised natural light intake.
As well as a restricted tilt facility for safety, they provide excellent ventilation capacity and easy cleaning access. Their versatile design makes them suitable for a wide range of applications.
Tilt and Turn: How do they work? A tilt and turn window fundamentally opens on two axis: tilting when ventilation needed and turning mainly to provide a means of escape from a room in case of fire. In the tilt position, the window tilts inwards into the room – remaining fixed at the base.
A tilt and turn window is a window that you can leave ajar at the top, or open fully, along its vertical axis. These windows can be perfectly combined with shutters.
For a Tilt turn window to function it requires more robust internal hardware with multiple locking points. Additionally, the in-swing hinges further secure the window from being forced/pulled open from the exterior. The tilt position also aids in security while still enabling ventilation.
