A versatile and practical option for any home
Tilt and Turn windows are an established option for homeowners and have been a common style of window throughout the UK for many decades. First designed and engineered in Germany in the 1950s, the appeal of a Tilt and Turn window, and their ease and flexibility of use, quickly spread across the rest of Europe. And the UK weren’t far behind in welcoming them into their homes where they’ve remained popular since the ’80s.
Today, manufacturing methods and materials have improved with cutting edge technology, but the Tilt and Turn window style and functionality remain largely unchanged, offering both privacy and practicality at the same time. An incredibly versatile window, a Tilt and Turn fits and works brilliantly in almost every room, as well as different styles of home, whether they’re older properties or modern contemporary ones.
Tilt and Turn windows function on an innovative two-way opening system, but with a single, easy to use handle. If you want to let air in for ventilation without opening your window fully, they can be tilted from the top at a 10-15º angle which children will be unable to reach. When you want to open them wide, just close the inward tilt, turn the handle, and open inwards to a full 90°.
When opened wide, Tilt and Turn windows can also be used as a vital fire escape or emergency exit. This is essential for today’s building regulation requirements and can give you peace of mind in case of fire or any other emergency. If you live in an older property which may be susceptible to condensation or damp, the excellent tilted ventilation will help to reduce these problems with a steady airflow. But they’re also an ideal choice if you’re looking for a superior energy and thermally efficient window style.
