Tilt & Turn windows have been a standard in the Germany for the past 40 years and are quickly becoming the window system of choice in most European homes. These windows combine functionality with security and also offer emergency exit access, easy cleaning and unique style. They can easily be operated with one hand and can be deadlocked if needed. The multi-point locking mechanism compresses the acoustic & central EPDM gasket from all sides in multiple places creating an airtight seal, which will, in turn, improve sound & heat/cold insulation and enhance the security of your home. Unlike a traditional window, the hardware mechanism in these windows allows it to open completely to the inside making them easy to clean from the inside of your house. If you want modern windows that offer more choice when it comes to opening and closing, tilt and turn windows will almost certainly be your best option.
