Tilt-and-Turn windows are the reason why North American homeowners are looking to Europeans for becoming more energy efficient and safe.
Popular in Europe, the energy efficient and easy to use tilt-and-turn windows are becoming the new craze for North American homeowners. People looking to save on their energy bill, while also having strong windows prefer the tilt-and-turn windows consistently.
With one handle, the window can tilt open from the top of the sash, swing open from its hinges, or be locked. This creates easy access for those who have trouble opening windows, such as people with arthritis. By tilting it open, the room is quickly and efficiently ventilated, but it still keeps the elements out by having a seal at the bottom of the window. Energy costs are then lowered even when the window is open. Swinging the window open from its hinges also makes outside cleaning easy and allows for a great emergency escape route. Once locked, the seal for tilt-and-turn windows is tight. With three different layers, these windows cancels outside noise and keep rooms energy efficient as well.
Tilt-and-turn window frames are typically made of steel. Fused together at each corner, they ensure durability and strength. This helps keeps energy costs down. When locked,a multi-lock system gives homeowners a sense of security, as opposed to one lock point like that of a typical slider window.
