What are tilt and turn windows?

This extremely practical window style originated in Europe. It combines two functions which provide lots of flexibility when compared to other window styles.

Tilt and turn windows can be swung open on their hinge mechanism like a casement window. However they can also be tilted from the bottom inwards for ventilation along with security (no-one can fit through that skinny opening!).

The double-opening is done via a single handle which is used in two way. Either you open the window all the way, or just from the bottom, depending on where the handle is facing.

Why choose tilt and turn windows?

You may be asking yourself, “why should I buy tilt and turn windows?”. Indeed, how will they benefit you in particular? Not everyone prioritises the same things, but there are multiple benefits of tilt and turn windows which we outline here:

  • Amazing ventilation

By having two different ways of being opened, you have lots of flexibility when it comes to ventilation. You can get airflow around the sides and the top when you open it via the bottom hinge with no drafts! This is a huge advantage. This is because you can also open it completely and ventilate a room very quickly in this way. On top of being able to ventilate your home while you’re away without much risk, no water will enter your home if it rains!

  • Perfect for restricted spaces

If you don’t have tons of space in one particular area but you’d like some light and ventilation there, then this window could be perfect for you! It allows you to take up very little space when you open the window, which means it can be placed in an area that other windows would not allow for. The wide ranging flexibility here is crucial!

  • Maintenance made easy

People who exchange their sash windows for tilt and turn windows notice this advantage in particular. Sash windows are not always the easiest things to clean, especially if you don’t have a ladder. With tilt and turn windows you don’t need to endanger your life to make your exterior panes sparkling clean because you can open it all the way horizontally.
