Tilt and Turn windows open inwards, which is very distinct from traditional casement windows, and have found favour with many architects and clients who have projects for which an open out window is not suitable.
The tilt and turn window is popular where an inward opening application is required, for instance where outside window shutters prevent a window from opening outwards. It operates simply into ‘ventilation mode’, where the top of the sash tilts inwards. On closing the sash and further rotating the handle the hinge mechanism is engaged which makes the sash swing inwards for an easier and safer clean to the outside windowpane.
Tilt & turn windows provide the ideal solution for locations where
window safety and window access may be an issue. The unique concealed hardware design means that the window can be set in one of two positions. As a result of the unique properties of the Tilt & turn window, they are ideal for apartments or flats, from the ground floor up.
This position allows a window to tilt open, giving for good ventilation, but without comprimising safety.
The whole sash opens out into the room allowing for easy cleaning or maintenance. Concealed hardware built into the frame and sash allows the window to tilt and turn in two directions. Clever stuff!
