    Since the early 1900s, tilt and turn technology has been a popular choice for doors and windows in Europe. Over the past few years, this style has recently begun to cross the Atlantic. Read on for more information about these unique and increasingly popular windows.

    What Are Tilt and Turn Windows and How Do They Work?

    Tilt and turn windows open two ways, giving you flexible ventilation options. Turning the handle 90 degrees swings the window sash open into your room, which will provide you with a clear view outside and a full breeze. In this position, provided that they are located on the first floor, or open onto a deck, a tilt and turn window can also act as an easy entryway.

    Turning the handle 180 degrees tilts the sash inward to create ventilation from the top of the window, providing security alongside just a little bit of a breeze.

    Tilt and turn windows also include a locked position, which firmly closes the sash from all sides to ensure a tight weather and intruder-repellant seal.

    Common Materials Tilt and Turn Windows

    Tilt and turn windows are often made with an energy efficient core of fiberglass or polyvinyl chloride (PVC), with a painted finish that can be laminated to appear solid or like a wood grain. To complement these materials, many manufacturers use high-quality glass or glazing to boost the performance of their product. Combining low-emissivity coatings with multi-paned gas-filled glass will prevent these large windows from becoming weak spots in your home.

    Window Treatments for Tilt and Turn Windows

    Many tilt and turn windows come with built-in blinds to provide privacy and block excessive heat and light. A few tilt and turn windows options also include retractable screens to keep bugs and other debris out.

    Because of their typically large size, tilt and turn windows pair well with floor length panel curtains. Any curtains should be hung on curtain rods that extend beyond the width of tilt and turn window. This will ensure that the curtains can be drawn open and clear of the tilt and turn window so that it can easily open inward without becoming caught on the curtains.

    Bottom Line: A Unique and Multi-Functioning European Style

    Tilt and turn windows both swing open like a casement window and tilt in like an awning window, making them useful in nearly any home. These windows provide ventilation, beautiful expansive views, and an extra entryway. Not to mention, these unique windows can be a stylish focal point and conversation piece for any of your home's rooms.
