Tilt & Turn Windows UK
Good windows not only have to look good, they also need to offer practical applications such as, functionality, ventilation options and ease of cleaning. Tilt and turn windows are clearly among the practical all-rounders as the rotary handle allows the window to be closed, tilted or completely opened. This special functionality has numerous benefits.
The so-called one-hand operation fittings located in the centre of the window are exceptionally ergonomic and suitable for frail or elderly inhabitants. Furthermore, as windows are always a danger to children, there are options for child safety locks to be added to the handles. Variants that open inwards are also more practical because they allow for easy cleaning, and the inside fittings are better protected against the effects of the weather.
Tilt and turn windows allows for much bigger windows and consequently enable much more natural light into your home. You can also achieve a clean and modern appearance with ease because you can choose tilt and turn windows that have hidden hinges. Aside from this, your options are pretty much limitless when it comes to the design side of things. You can opt for wood-aluminium or fully aluminium windows. You can also choose from an enormous range of frame choices, glazing, colours, and handles, making it easy for you to select something that complements your home.
Highly Insulated When Combined With Double/Triple Glazing
The tilting feature allows excessive warm air collected in the room to escape via the upper part of the sash window and at the same time fresh air flows from outside into the room around the sides of the frame.
In combination with double glazing or triple glazing, tilt and turn windows offer high levels of sound and heat insulation. Double glazing provides better thermal insulation, as the airtight space between the panes is filled with gasses such as argon or krypton. A heat-insulating coating is additionally applied to the inside of the inner pane in order to improve the heat transfer coefficient (U-value) of the pane.
A U-value of 0.4 to 0.8 is standard for windows with triple glazing and indicates a high energy efficiency. As a result, triple-glazed windows are six times more effective than single-glazed windows. This can be reflected in a saving of several hundred pounds a year in heating bills; therefore, paying off your investment over a short period and having an active contribution to environmental sustainability.
