    We're Here to Answer Your Questions

    How does a tilt and turn window open?

    A tilt and turn window has two distinct modes of operation. It can either be opened in the tilt position, which allows you to open the top half of the window while keeping the bottom half closed, or it can be opened fully in the turn mode, allowing you to open both the top and bottom halves of the window completely.

    What are the benefits of installing a tilt and turn window?

    They provide excellent ventilation, allowing fresh air to enter the home while still maintaining security and privacy. They are also easy to use, with the ability to open both the top and bottom halves of the window in two distinct modes – in tilt or fully open. Additionally, they are also extremely energy efficient, helping to reduce heating costs in the winter and cooling costs in the summer. Finally, since tilt and turn windows do not require bulky hardware for operation, they have a modern aesthetic that can enhance any room's décor.

    Are tilt and turn windows secure?

    Yes, tilt and turn windows are very secure. They feature multiple points of locking systems that offer better security than alternative window styles.

    How much maintenance is required for a tilt and turn window?

    Tilt and turn windows require minimal maintenance. The occasional cleaning of the frame and glass can help to keep dirt and dust from building up, while regular lubricating of the hinges can ensure smooth operation. In addition, any damaged seals should be repaired or replaced to ensure proper insulation. All in all, tilt and turn windows are fairly low-maintenance and are designed to last for years with minimal effort.

    Is there a difference between a tilt and turn window and other types of windows?

    The main difference is the ability to open and close the window in two different ways - either with a tilt or a full turn. This allows for greater airflow while still keeping the security of the locking system intact. Additionally, tilt and turn windows also feature better insulation than other window types, which helps to reduce heat transfer and save energy.

    Benefits of Tilt & Turn Windows

    Tilt and turn windows offer a plethora of benefits that make them a great option for any home. They provide exceptional ventilation control because you can open the window inwards (from the top) as well as outward (from the side). This means you can let in the breeze, without compromising security or weather resistance. 

    The second advantage is their durability; tilt and turn windows are made of robust materials such as aluminum or uPVC which are known for their longevity. This means that they won’t need to be replaced often, saving you money. They also require minimal maintenance, which involves easy cleaning with a damp microfiber cloth, which can be done from inside your home, as well as occasional lubrication to ensure smooth transitions. 

    Finally, tilt and turn windows are incredibly versatile. They can be placed in almost any room of the house, due to their range of uses which provide options for air control, noise pollution, safety, and security.

    Ventilation Control

    Tilt and turn windows provide more ventilation control in your home by allowing you either open the window fully (turn) or partially (tilt). The unique tilt feature of these windows also allows you to keep the window open while it is raining, whether you are looking to keep the air flowing in your home or fall asleep to the sound of rain.

    Furthermore, tilt and turn windows are easy to operate manually: they require light pressure, placed on the handle downward or horizontally depending on your desired window position. This makes them highly accessible and easy-to-use.

    Tilt and turn windows are designed to be durable and long-lasting. Their multi-point locking system helps prevent air infiltration, while their robust construction makes them resistant to wear and tear. These types of windows also have a dual opening mechanism, allowing users to tilt the sash inwards for ventilation or swing it open completely like a door. This flexible design means that the window can still be functional even after years of frequent use. Furthermore, tilt and turn windows are often made from uPVC or aluminum which makes them extremely resistant to weathering, corrosion, and fading – making them much more durable than other types of frames such as timber or metal. All these features make tilt and turn windows an excellent choice for those looking for a reliable and long-lasting window solution.
