Elegant European Tilt and
Turn Windows for Your Calgary Home

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.

European Tilt and Turn Window

How Does a European Tilt and Turn Window Operate?

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.

What Are the Benefits of a European Tilt and Turn Window?

  • A tilt and turn window can be easily cleaned without going outside.
  • These windows come with a “tilt before turn” feature and a handle that locks with a key. This lets you leave the window open in the tilt position but prevents small children from opening the window farther and falling out.
  • The virtually impenetrable Wink Haus multi-point locking mechanism allows for maximum security even when the window is always left open.
  • The design of this window allows for the seals needed to make them totally airtight and energy efficient.
  • Larger window sizes are possible with this design allowing for excellent lighting as well as the tilt and turn functionality.
  • If you want an egress window in case of fire but also want a large, attractive, and highly functional window, a European tilt and turn window is an excellent choice.
  • Because Germany has stringent laws regarding energy conservation, the European tilt and turns windows produced there are highly energy efficient.
  • These German-built windows come with life expectancies as high 85 years!
