tilt and turn windows have long been a popular choice for homeowners on the due to their excellent weather proofing and security features. These windows are very practical and versatile as they feature a hinge mechanism which means they can be opened in 2 ways.
Tilt and turn windows can be opened fully like a casement window (inwards) or they can be tilted from the bottom so that the top of the window is angled into the room, giving a smaller opening for ventilation. The tilted opening also has the added benefit of increased security and safety as no one can fit through the gap.When the window is in position and the handle is downwards it is fixed securely in position, but the tilt and turn window has a handle which works in 2 different ways.If you turn the handle 90° the window will swing inwards opening the aperture fully, if you turn the handle 180° it will only tilt open with the aperture mainly at the top.
One of the biggest advantages of tilt and turn windows is that they offer a great deal of flexibility when it comes to ventilation. You don’t need to have the window fully open to let air into your home, you can simply open it slightly by tilting it. You can then adjust the angle depending on how much ventilation you want. The design also means that when it rains water is prevented from entering your home because of the tilted angle.
