Tilt and Turn Windows – Double Glazed
Tilt and turn windows with double glazing operate by a single lever which controls both the tilt and the turn.
A 90° turn of the handle operates the bottom hung, inward opening, ’tilt’ function. Turning the handle by a further 90° allows the window to operate as a side-hung inward opening window. This allows the tilt and turn window to be safely and easily cleaned from the inside. This ventilation position is controlled by a restrictor arm built into the head of the frame, thus offering secure excellent indirect ventilation. That is, any draughts are directed upwards and so there are a more constant airing. If more ventilation is required at anytime than is allowed by the tilt function then the window can always be fully opened using the other method of opening. The operation is very easy with both opening functions operated by a single lever.
Tilt and turn windows are very secure with the entire perimeter locked into place by the single lever. This type of window is a good combination of classical style and modern technology. It is an extremely versatile window.
