Tilt & Turn Operation Explained

Tilt & Turn windows and doors have been the standard in Germany and other European countries for the past 40 years.

T & T windows combine Functionality with Security. All functions are one-handed, one move operated. It’s smooth, it’s easy and it’s safe. The multi-point locking mechanism also keeps the sash/frame from twisting or bending.

Your T & T windows and doors will therefore be kept straight and functional for many years to come. Unlike traditional window, the turn & tilt hardware allows the window to open completely for a clear exit in an emergency.

TILT

Tilted inwards on top for optimal, draft-free ventilation. This opening position is still secured against intruders, leaving you and your property safely protected. You can leave the windows tilted open even in rain, (tilted approximately 150 mm (5.9") inwards).

For Ventilation: A traditional open window often causes a draft due to the direct path of the outside wind into the room. With a turn & tilt window, the outside air is channeled through the sides of the window, while hotter air escapes through the top. This process allows efficient air circulation without the draft.

TURN

Turn completely open, left or right, for egress/regress or for easy claning. Depending on the position of the window in relationship to the the inside wall, they can be opened up to 180 degree, completely against the inside wall.

For Ease of Cleaning: By swinging the window inward into the room, a homeowner can easily and safely clean both glass surfaces.

CLOSED

A multi point locking mechanism with up to 7 cam locks for the (A 3) burglarproof security level keeps the sash tightly locked into it's frame. Wind & Rain resitance: tested and certified for loads of up to 25 lb per sq.ft and short loads (7 sec.) of up to 63 lb per sq.ft. This translates to 100 mi/hr respectively 145 mi/hr wind.
