Flexible Functionality

Operated by a single side handle, tilt-and-turn windows open inwards in two ways, making them highly flexible. 

With the handle at a 90-degree angle from the closed position, the window tilts from the top to create a ventilation gap. With the handle rotated upwards 180 degrees from closed, the window turns on side hinges to open up to 90 degrees, like a casement window

Secure Ventilation

Tilt and turn windows improve interior air circulation when tilted inwards from the top on hinges at the bottom of the window.

Different ventilation positions are fixed in place with a tilt restrictor, which helps home security by preventing access. You can also open your window sideways if you want to let more air into your home.

Easy Exterior Cleaning

Open double glazed window

The exterior of tilt-and-turn windows can be cleaned from inside by opening them inwards from the side hinges.

This avoids the need for a ladder or hiring a window cleaner to keep the outside of your upstairs windows sparkling.

Safety Features

The restrictor function in the tilt operation of tilt/turn windows improves child safety in your home by preventing the window opening past a set point. The turn operation allows you to open the window wide to create an emergency exit.

Tilt-and-Turn Window Glazing

Tilt-and-turn windows in Edinburgh installed by GreenCastle come with double glazing as standard. This provides multiple benefits including:

  • Strong security, with two sheets of tough, impact-resistant glass separated by a heavy inert gas that acts as a shock absorber.
  • Noise reduction – double glazing reduces exterior noise by absorbing sound waves.
  • Excellent energy efficiency that cuts heating costs and lessens your carbon footprint.
  • Less condensation, which helps avoid damp patches and growth of toxic mould.

Triple Glazing

We also offer triple-glazed tilt/turn windows. These are more expensive than double glazing but the third pane of glass enhances the window’s performance, with even better heat retention, acoustic insulation, and security.

UPVC Tilt-and-Turn Window Frames

UPVC is the material of choice for tilt and turn window frames because of its many advantages, such as:

  • Security – uPVC window frames are virtually impossible to break, with multi-point locking systems that provide further protection against intruders.
  • Energy efficiency – uPVC window frames help to minimise heat loss from your home because they’re low conductors of heat.
  • Low maintenance – none of the sanding and repainting needed with wooden frames.

Tilt-and-Turn Window Customisation

We can customise your tilt and turn windows to match the style of your home and your individual tastes.

While the clean look of white window frames is a standard choice, you can choose from a large variety of coloured frames, from shades of cream through to black, and wood grain effects.

We also offer a range of tilt-and-turn window design options including leaded panes such as stained glass, and windows with Georgian-style bars.

Tilt-and-Turn Windows Edinburgh - FAQs

Most frequent questions and answers

Tilt-and-turn windows open inwards to provide greater control over air circulation in the home, with various ventilation options.

When tilted open from the top to create a small gap, the window provides the air flow required without compromising security. You can also maintain ventilation in wet weather without rainwater getting into your home.

In warmer weather, you can turn the window inwards 90 degrees to get more air flowing through your home. 

Tilt-and-turn windows are highly secure. They’re made with stronger internal hardware than casement windows, and also have multiple locking points. The in-swinging hinges further secure the window from being forced open from the outside.

Tilt/turn windows are also ideal for families with young children. The tilt function prevents kids from clambering out of the window.

The design and manufacture of tilt-and-turn windows is a complex process. This makes them more expensive than other types of windows. Many homeowners feel the extra cost is worth it because of benefits such as stronger security and increased child safety.

The cost of tilt-turn windows depends on various considerations, such as the size of the window, quality of materials, level of customisation, and whether preparatory structural work like opening up a wall is needed.
