Read all the latest news and information regarding uPVC Windows, the energy efficient and low maintenance alternative to traditional window frames.
Tilt and Turn for a simple, secure window option
The tilt and turn uPVC window has proven one the of the most popular window choices in Europe and the US where PVC windows have more than 80 per cent market share for new and replacement windows. The reason for their popularity is that tilt and turn uPVC windows offer a stylish, low maintenance and contemporary look with some unique benefits over more traditional awning or casement windows.
Tilt and turn windows open inward rather like casement windows, but they can also tilt inward from the top. Easy to operate, the window can be operated smoothly with one hand.
The multi-point locking mechanism of these uPVC windows keeps the sash and frame from twisting or bending while providing an extra safe window locking mechanism - great for secure ventilation at night.
As well as offering the excellent thermal and acoustic protection expected of uPVC window frames, tilt and turn windows are ideal for multi-storey buildings. The outside of the window can easily be accessed from the inside since the window opens directly into the room, making cleaning simple and safe.
Using the tilt position, the window opens inwards at the top, offering great ventilation yet maintaining a high degree of security because of the multi-point locking mechanism built into the uPVC profiles.
Tilt and turn – another great benefit of uPVC windows.
