What Is a Tilt and Turn Window?

Originating from Germany, tilt and turn windows can turn and tilt open so you can enjoy all the benefits of fresh air flowing into your home without letting in rain or too much wind. These windows are also easy to clean, making them a popular option with busy homeowners. 

What sets these windows apart is the single handle mechanism, which makes them easy to open so you can switch between the different opening styles in one single movement.

How Tilt and Turn Windows Work: Three Options

When you choose tilt and turn windows, there are three different ways you can use them: 

  • Closed: When tilt and turn windows are closed, the handle points down to the floor, allowing an unobstructed view for light to shine into your home. The window features steel locking pins, which keep it tightly secured when closed. 
  • Tilted: If you turn the handle upward so it’s pointing to the ceiling, the window can tilt inward from the top while the bottom remains in place. In the tilt mode, the window opens only a few inches before locking in place, which allows for a gentle breeze, but keeps rain from entering your home.
  • Turned (or opened): To activate the turning function, turn the handle so it points to the right. When you do, the window can swing inward, almost like a door. This allows for maximum airflow and gives you full access to the outside.

Benefits of Tilt and Turn Windows

Tilt and turn windows are popular with many local homeowners and with good reason! Here are some of the benefits of choosing this window type

  • Versatility: These windows allow you to easily control the amount of ventilation in your home. 
  • Durability: Tilt and turn windows are designed to withstand heavy rains and wind. 
  • Easy cleaning: Since tilt and turn windows can open into your home, it’s easier than ever to clean both sides of them. 
  • Safety and security: Tilt and turn windows have advanced locking systems, making them a safe option for your home. If you have small children, the handles are also harder to reach compared to some other window styles.
