Tilt and Turn Windows

Hoover: While on a recent trip, we were amazed at the windows in our hotel that open two ways. You can tilt it or turn it outwards using the same handle. It was even double glazed for noise reduction. Read on.

Tilt + Turn Windows achieve exceptional energy efficiency, air tightness, water resistance and sound control. Innovative European style Tilt + Turn Windows also provide excellent draft free ventilation and high levels of security. They are also easy to operate and are conveniently easy to clean.
Closed Position

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.
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.
Tilt Position

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.
