One of the most uncommon windows in North America, tilt and turn windows are actually very popular in Europe. It’s different from many of the windows in Canada because instead of separate locks and cranks, it’s simply fitted with one large handle. Tilt and turn windows come with unique roto hardware that’s placed inside the window itself, allowing for easy operation and extremely tight seals, in addition to unparalleled longevity.
Many are surprised to learn how convenient and simple it is to operate, clean, maintain, and even use these windows as a fire escape. Once the handle of the tilt and turn window is inside the room, it delivers constant airflow. This allows the hot air inside to easily escape, and cool fresh air to flow inside. In cases where you want a little extra airflow, you can swing the entire window inside your house, much like you would a door. This allows for increased airflow, and you can even use it in a fire escape during emergencies.
