How your home can benefit from tilt and turn windows
When tilt and turn windows first appeared in German homes in the 1960s, tilt and turn windows were praised for their innovative design. Over half a century later, they are still among the most popular window styles. Chosen for their built-in safety features, security acumen and improved ventilation, tilt and turn windows continue to be popular worldwide.
At Majestic Designs, all of our tilt and turn windows are manufactured at our state-of-the-art factories in Somerset using only the highest quality uPVC materials and A+14 energy-rated double glazing.
Every Tilt and Turn window can be tailor-made to your measurements for the ultimate in-home energy efficiency and installed with precision by our experienced team for a perfect fit.
Enhanced safety – ideal for families
As a parent, you spend much of your child’s early life protecting them from hazards. From installing baby gates to covering plug sockets, every potential danger must be located and removed. Windows can present various risks if left unattended, but tilt and turn windows offer support for parents with small children so that you can ventilate your home with peace of mind.
Tilt and turn windows offer a dual opening facility to give you more options for opening your windows. They can be tilted from the top at a 10-15º angle that children cannot reach. When you want to open them wide, just close the inward tilt, turn the handle, and open inwards to a full 90°. This mechanism reduces the risk to young children and gives you more confidence to leave your windows open whilst you go about your day.
Tilt and turn windows are easier to clean
Tilt and turn windows could offer a fantastic solution for those who avoid cleaning windows for fear of heights. The design of tilt and turn windows means they can be cleaned from the inside – perfect for anyone who would rather avoid climbing ladders with a bucket in one hand and a squeegee in the other!
The turn facility allows the window to open fully so that the exterior swings inwards, so you can clean the glass from the comfort of your home and maintain your windows without having to climb ladders or pay a window cleaner.
A suitable fire escape route
Tilt and turn windows make an ideal fire escape. As the large window opens inwards, they make an ideal escape route for windows above the ground floor where the only route out might be through the upstairs window.
If you are looking to fit a window as a fire escape, speak to a member of our team, who will be able to advise whether a tilt and turn window is suitable for your home. Our friendly sales advisors will visit your home to measure your home and bring a variety of window styles so that you can decide whether a tilt and turn window is right for you. All of our tilt and turn windows are available in a variety of colours, ensuring that your new fire escape fits seamlessly into the aesthetic of your home.
Ventilate with peace of mind
All homes need ventilation. This is especially true if your home is particularly damp or humid. Ventilation can be tricky if you want to leave rooms unattended or sleep without worrying about intruders. Fortunately, tilt and turn windows provide a great solution.
Using the top opening facility offers much-needed ventilation whilst only leaving a small opening. This means that you can keep any tilt and turn windows open in your home without worrying about security, regardless of whether you are in the same room or not. Even if you are sleeping, you can keep your bedroom window open without worrying about large apertures being left wide open.
Ventilate with energy efficiency
Ventilate your house without having to open the windows wide. All Majestic Designs’ windows are A+14 rated for energy efficiency. This means that they are fourteen times more efficient than an A-rated window. This could save hundreds of pounds a year on heating bills and keep your home warmer all year round.
