What are tilt and turn windows?
Tilt and turn windows are a type of window that can be opened in two different ways, depending on the position of the handle. These windows are popular in Cornwall and are gaining popularity in other parts of the world due to their functionality and energy efficiency.
In the “tilt” position, the window opens from the top, allowing fresh air to enter the room while keeping the window securely locked in place. This position is ideal for ventilation, as the opening is large enough to let in a good amount of air, but small enough to prevent unauthorised entry or accidental falls.
In the “turn” position, the window opens inwards from the side, like a door. This position allows for easy cleaning of the outside of the window, as well as unobstructed access to the outside for emergency situations.
Tilt and turn windows are often made of high-quality materials such as uPVC, aluminium, or wood, and are available in a variety of sizes and styles to suit different architectural styles and personal preferences. They are also energy-efficient, as they provide an effective seal when closed, reducing heat loss and lowering energy bills.
From our factory in Cornwall we can manufacture and install tilt & turn windows to complement traditional properties, more contemporary homes, and everything in between, using a wide range of styles, materials and colours.
What are the benefits of Tilt and Turn windows?
Tilt and turn windows offer several benefits, including:
Tilt and turn windows can be opened in two different ways, allowing for greater versatility in controlling ventilation and airflow. They can be tilted inward from the top to let in fresh air without fully opening the window, or turned inward from the side to fully open the window.
When the windows are closed and locked, they offer excellent security, as they are made with multiple locking points and reinforced frames.
Tilt and turn windows have excellent energy efficiency ratings, as they provide a tight seal that helps prevent heat loss and reduce energy costs.
The windows are easy to clean, as they can be fully opened inward, which makes cleaning the exterior from the inside of the building possible.
Tilt and turn windows provide better insulation against outdoor noise than traditional windows, as they provide a tighter seal.
In case of fire or emergency, tilt and turn windows can be quickly and easily opened to allow occupants to escape.
Overall, tilt and turn windows are a practical and attractive option for homeowners who value functionality, versatility, and energy efficiency in their windows.
