Tilt & turn windows are a practical solution for homes above 1 storey

As they tilt inwards from the top, you can ventilate your home without the worry of a small child attempting to climb out of them. However, by fully opening them into the home, you can also clean them in safety and comfort. For these reasons, they’re highly sought after in high-up locations, such as blocks of flats and other multi-storey residences. Although, many also seek them out for the second or third storey of their home. Available in uPVC, timber and aluminium, there are plenty of ways to customise them to suit you.

One area where aluminium tilt and turn windows differ from their competitors are their exceptionally slender frames, which are a result of the material’s wonderful strength. This gives them a modern, streamlined appearance. And because there are more than 150 RAL colours available for application to their frames, the possibilities for them are virtually endless.

Performance wise, you can expect superior energy ratings of A+ and a warmer, more comfortable home in the process. Aluminium also has an expected lifespan of 45 years with the absolute minimum of maintenance required on your part.

Can you get blinds for tilt and turn windows?

As tilt and turn windows open inwards, they are not suitable for use with traditional blinds and curtains. However, here at T&K, we install integral blinds which are housed within the glazed unit of the window. Therefore, they do not interfere with the window’s inward opening arc. Available in either Venetian or Pleated styles, they’re the perfect solution for anyone who wants more control over light and privacy levels in their home.

Can tilt and turn windows open outwards?

Tilt and turn windows are not designed for outward opening. Their specialist hinge system allows them to be tilted inwards from the top or fully opened into the room in which they are fitted. However, if you require outward opening windows, we recommend that opting for casement windows instead. Here at T&K, they are available in uPVC, aluminium or timber, and they come in a wealth of finish options too.
