The composite tilt and turn window is standard in homes in Germany and is now available in Calgary, courtesy of RVW Ltd.
Advantages of a European tilt and turn window are that its turn mechanism allows it to be used as an exit or even a fire escape. These windows offer efficient ventilation by forcing air toward the ceiling as it enters.
When the window is tilted open it does not need to be propped as the mechanism is designed for a fixed inward tilt. And, if the wind catches this window, it has an “anti-slamming” mechanism that prevents the window from closing. Rain is caught in drainage channels and does not drip into your home.
This innovative window design opens on two axes. The window tilts to provide ventilation and opens like a door to provide a means of egress such as when there is a fire.
The window is fixed or hinged at the base and tilts inward. Because these windows have a very sturdy design the window and mechanisms of opening offer superior security even when the window is left open. Because of the specially designed drainage channel at the base of the window, any rain that strikes the window drains down into the channel and onto your floor.
Because we have done business in Calgary for many years, we know the needs of our clients, the kinds of windows that work well in the Alberta climate, and the various window designs that work well with any home or business.
European tilt and turn windows can be an excellent choice for your home or office in Calgary.
