What Are Tilt and Turn Windows?
Tilt and turn windows area beautiful option for any home. Their versatility for being able to open two ways allows you to control the amount of fresh air throughout your many rooms. Maybe you burned sauce in the kitchen? Or you wish to bring in some of the fresh air inside, tilt and turn windows will help with either scenario and so much more. You can choose either option with a simple twist of the handle attached to the window. Below is an explanation of each:
Tilt: By rotating the handle on the window 180 degrees, the window will tilt open at the top of the frame. This small opening allows for ventilation to help cool down your home or remove odours. It is also added security because no one could fit through the gap if you left it accidentally open after leaving.
Turn: If you rotate the opening handle 90 degrees, you can fully open the window as you would a door. Allowing more airflow to help cool your home down quicker, and with the aid of a fan could remove smells and smoke from cooking sooner.

Great for Smaller Spaces: Because you can open these windows by tilting or turning them, you can install them in smaller spaces to attain superb ventilation.

Ease of Maintenance: There is no need to remove the screens or get a ladder out to clean your windows again. Since they fully open into the home, you can use a window cleaner and cloth to clean the outside as well as the inside of the window. See clearly like never before with tilt and turn windows.

Having this added safety feature protects against any accidents from occurring while you are trying to enjoy the nice weather in Dorset.
