Tilt and Turn Windows

As the names suggest there are two types. Often older types are ‘turn first’. These turn inwards on hinges at the top and bottom (Handle horizontal). By turning the handle to the upward pointing vertical position, the window will ‘tilt’ inwards. Hinged at the bottom.

More recent types ‘tilt’ with the first, horizontal position of the handle, and turn inwards with second position pointing upwards.

WITH EITHER TYPE, THE WINDOW MUST BE CLOSED TO CHANGE BETWEEN TILT/TURN POSITIONS.

Mechanisms on these windows should be lubricated a couple of times a year (more in coastal areas), using a light spray lubricant.

It is important that these are maintained properly as they are prone to be draughty and/or leak in extreme weather, especially in seafront locations.

Any difficulty in operation should be investigated at the earliest opportunity.

Thank you for sending those two apostles over to sort out our orangerie and kitchen door/window for us. It is way better than having a draft and wet wood floors when it rains.
