Tilt and turn windows are of a European style and therefore a fairly new concept to most British homes. However, they are becoming increasingly popular in self-builds, home renovation and improvement projects because of their versatility.

As with all of our bespoke windows, our tilt and turn windows are available in three material options; timber, aluminium and alu-clad, and can be factory finished in your favourite RAL colour or wood stain, if you choose our timber option, and fitted with double or triple glazing as standard.

Before you choose which material, glass and colour for your tilt and turn windows, you’re probably going to want to know how they open, right? To make sure you’re making the right choice.

How do Kloeber’s tilt and turn windows open?

Tilt and turn windows are manufactured with a dual-action hinge mechanism. This enables you to tilt the glass panel inwards, by turning the handle through to 90°, to create ventilation in your home, as well as opening it on its side hinges by turning the handle a further 90°, opening the panel fully into the room – which is great for cleaning, especially for windows fitted on the higher floors of your home.

This is also perfect for the great British weather. As we know, we can’t always guarantee the sun and warmer weather, but when we do experience it, how great would it be to be able to open your windows to gain that flow through cool air without having to worry about the possibility of the weather changing quickly and ruining your home’s interior.

Can tilt and turn windows open outwards and inwards?

You’ve probably already guessed but we’ll answer the question just in case. Unlike with some other styles of windows, tilt and turn windows can only open inwards, so if you haven’t got the space to allow for this, these windows may not be the best option for you. They also don’t really lend themselves to blinds, so if curtains are also not to your taste, our timber, aluminium or alu-clad casement windows, or our Heritage or Über windows (which all open outwards) might be better suited to your needs.
