Tilt and Turn Hardware
Tilt and turn is the main window style in Germany, where they actually turn before they tilt. Here in the UK we’ve reversed that so that the first open handle position (90°) from Closed is Tilt. This is the main ventilation position. The user then moves through to the Turn position with the handle pointing upwards. This is designed as the cleaning position, where the outside of the window can be cleaned from inside the building without the need to lean out.
In normal use, our key-lockable TBT handles will allow free movement to the Tilt position, but must be unlocked to allow the window to be turned open. This is primarily a safety feature to prevent falls, but it also adds a layer of security to thwart tampering from outside if the window is in Tilt mode.
We offer two brands of tilt and turn hardware within the Q-secure guarantee. Both are available with surface fit and concealed hinges and both are from top quality manufacturers; AGB and Roto.
The Q-secure guarantee will pay out up to £8000 (Q-secure PREMIUM) if a break in is achieved due to a failure of our approved hardware.
Q-secure tilt and turn windows are ideal for those wishing to replace existing tilt and turns (many of which are Turn 1st from the 80s), or even to fit in replacement or new build installations in place of outward opening windows.
