Tilt and Turn Windows
Tilt and turn windows have a classic, practical style that looks good with most types of property. The design of these windows is ideal for the British weather, letting you enjoy the outdoors and fresh air, even when it’s raining.
Tilt and turn windows open in two ways. Firstly, you can tilt them open. You push the bottom of the window away from the frame, allowing the window to open at an angle. This allows you to get fresh air into your home, and if it rains, the water runs away from your property. You can also get tilt and turn windows that open at the top, which means you don’t get the rain protection, but they are an ideal design for basement spaces.
You can also open tilt and turn windows from the side. These windows can be manufactured so they turn inwards or outwards. This means you can angle the windows to let in fresh air and get a breeze through your home on hot days. Because tilt and turn windows are practical and low maintenance, they’ve become one of our most popular options. It’s worth noting that, if you choose windows that open inwards, you need a clear space without obstacles like heavy curtains in the way.

Can tilt and turn windows be secured?
Because tilt and turn windows have two mechanisms for opening and locking, you may be worried this makes them less secure. However, if you choose high-quality windows, like those made by Kayvex, this isn’t the case. Our tilt and turn windows are just as secure as any of our windows range, and we create locking systems that comply with the police’s Secured By Design standards. This ensures you feel safe in your home with these windows installed. Once installed, we’ll show you how to operate and securely lock your windows.
What sizes can tilt and turn windows be?
Because we manufacture our own windows, we can create tilt and turn windows in whatever size you need. This ensures the windows fit perfectly in your home. Our previous work has included making small windows for bathrooms and awkward spaces, plus huge statement windows for floor to ceiling views, as well as everything in-between. However, if you’re looking for very large windows on the ground floor, you might also want to consider alternatives like French doors, which look great and allow outside access. We’d be happy to discuss options that might work with your space.
How do you operate tilt and turn windows?
When you have tilt and turn windows installed by us, we show you how to operate and secure them. But rest assured, they are easy to use. You can tilt the window, which allows a slight breeze through while keeping your home safe and protected from rain, as water simply runs down the pane. These windows can also be opened inwards using their side hinge, which is ideal for the summer months as it lets more air inside. If you have more than one tilt and turn window, tilt one and turn the other, and this will allow the maximum breeze through your home.
How do tilt and turn windows work?
A tilt and turn window gives you two types of opening in one, and our high quality manufacturing and engineering mean they are secure and eco-friendly. These windows are made with two hinges, one at the top or bottom, and one on the side, allowing them to open in two perpendicular directions. You can therefore tilt the window out a little or open it inwards like a door as much as you like.
Can tilt and turn windows open inwards as well as outwards?
Yes, you can turn tilt and turn windows inwards and outwards, although the way you open them is slightly different. If you want to open them outwards, you can tilt them slightly, which gives you fresh air, but also keeps your home secure and protects your interior from sudden rain. On warmer days, or when you need lots of ventilation, you open your windows inwards on the side hinge, a bit like a door. This means you have different options for the ever-changing British weather.
Why should you choose tilt and turn windows?
Tilt and turn is one of our most popular window styles because it allows you to get different levels of ventilation depending on the weather. Some styles of window only open either at the top or the side, which might not always suit your needs. A tilt and turn window gives you the best of both worlds, allowing you extra protection on rainy days and lots of fresh air during the summertime.
