What are tilt and turn windows?

A modern window design, tilt and turn windows are hinged on two sides of the frame and can be opened inwards (into your home) in two versatile ways. In the ’tilt’ position, the window is hinged at the bottom, so that it opens towards you from the bottom (with the top of the window angled into the room) with a pull motion. In the ‘turn’ position, the window is hinged at the side, so that it opens similarly to a casement window, but with a pull motion.

The ‘turn’ function allows for a wide opening and maximum air circulation, whereas the ’tilt’ function allows for top ventilation (cutting back on strong breezes, preventing rainwater from entering your home, and making an excellent night opening). The innovative inwards opening design also enables you to easily clean the outside of your windows from the inside – perfect if your window isn’t on the ground floor or isn’t accessible by ladder.

A great choice for any home, tilt and turn windows blend modern styling with practical performance, delivering low maintenance design with the superior energy efficiency and security assurance that you should demand from new window installations.

With each and every window made to measure by our team of specialists and tailored to complement your property and personal taste, there are almost no limitations to the homes that our tilt and turn windows suit. Some of the properties that we’ve installed tilt and turn windows in include contemporary homes, new build homes, and modern homes and apartments.

The choice is endless, as is our devotion to you and your household efficiency and security.

Windows open in tilt function (hinged at the bottom, with the top of the window angled inwards into the room) for secure ventilation.
Sleek, slim sightlines coupled with clear glass gives a contemporary aesthetic.
Robust internal, door-like hinges.
Window opened wide (90°) in turn function (hinged at the side and opened inwards into the room).

Safety and security

In addition to frame composition and glazing, window safety and security is largely dependent upon the locking and hinge mechanisms fitted.

Whichever material you choose, all truhouse. tilt and turn windows are composed of robust multichambered profiles and fitted with the latest high security multipoint locking mechanisms (shootbolt espagnolettes, bidirectional cams, roller cams, and shootbolt locks) and anti-jemmy mechanisms to prevent your hinges being forced open. With each side of the opening sash fully secured with the turn of a handle, our tilt and turn windows ensure your home is protected against potential intruders.

Fitted with robust, door-like, in-swing hinges, tilt and turn windows can be opened very wide, very quickly, providing you with maximum clearance and an easy escape route in the event you need to exit through your window in an emergency. Perfect for keeping children and little fingers safe, the tilt function also restricts the opening space a potential intruder could use to enter your home should you wish to keep your sliding sash window ajar for ventilation overnight.
