uPVC Tilt and Turn Windows: Hampshire & Dorset Services

Tilt and Turn Windows Hampshire & Dorset

Combining flexibility and functionality, uPVC tilt and turn windows facilitate ventilation, enabling you to open the window incrementally, rather than blasting your home with cold air.

Traditionally, windows typically open outwards, offering an "all or nothing" approach to airflow that leaves you at the mercy of the elements.

Conversely, tilt and window styles open inwards instead, enabling you to adjust the size of the aperture in accordance with personal comfort.  

The distinctive, tilting vent is a talking point in itself, enabling you to flood the room with light while admiring the natural environment.

So how exactly do tilt and turn windows work?

When it comes to tilt and turn windows, it`s all about the hinge! This nifty window mechanism works its magic in myriad ways, resulting in an ambient, aerated home that puts security at the top of the agenda.

To achieve this, a simple 180 degrees turn opens the aperture at the top, enabling air to circulate effectively, without overwhelming the interior space.

Alternatively, a 90-degree turn of the handle opens the window to full capacity, enabling you to adjust the tilt accordingly.

At the end of the day, the handle can be levered downward to keep your home safe and secure, returning the window to its original position. 

Are there any drawbacks that I should know about?

Although the benefits outweigh the drawbacks, there are three, key considerations that you should definitely bear in mind.

Firstly, the inward opening function makes placement a top priority. Objects in front of these windows may cause potential obstructions, making it crucial to clear the space before you install these windows.

Secondly, remember that the aperture can open to full capacity. If you have young children, installing these windows at height in their bedroom is inadvisable for obvious reasons.

Lastly, the tilt and turn mechanism itself may be costly to replace if required. However, if installed by a credible contractor, the quality of the product and installation will be guaranteed from the outset.
