Pvc Tilt and turn windows have been a popular choice of window in many countries for some time. There are many advantageous properties of pvc Tilt and turn windows that explain this success. A tilt and turn window operates by a single lever which controls both the tilt and the turn. Typically a quarter turn of the lever will allow the window to swing inwards like a pvc casement window. A second quarter turn will allow the window to tilt inwards from the top.
Pvc Tilt and turn windows offer a number of advantages including, but not limited to, the following. The turn property (i.e. swing in) function of the window allows easy cleaning of the outside pane as the entire pane can easily be accessed from inside. Therefore there is no need to climb ladders or clean from the outside. The tilt function gives excellent indirect ventilation. That is any draughts are directed upwards and so there are a more constant airing. If more ventilation is required at anytime than is allowed by the tilt function then the window can always be fully opened using the other method of opening. The operation is very easy with both opening functions operated by a single lever.
The pvc Tilt and turn windows are also very secure with the entire perimeter locked into place by the single lever. This style of window is a good combination of classical styles and modern technologies and is extremely versatile. There are a couple of things to be aware of. If the window is swung open as opposed to tilted then there should be nothing on the windowsill as if there is, it will be swept off. Also, the window cannot be locked into place using this method and so should not be left unattended, particularly on breezy days.
