Tilt & Turn Window opening

Tilt & Turn opening windows are the standard in Germany and other European countries for more than 50 years.  The mechanism combines functionality with added security.  The one handed operation is smooth, easy and safe.  The multi-point locking mechanism also keeps the sash/frame from twisting or bending.  The opening mechanism allows for ventilation while remaining secure, and opens completely for emergency exit and ease of cleaning.

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 Position

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

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.
