Tilt-Turn Windows

In the tilt position, the window opens at the top with hinges at the bottom. In the turn position, the hinges are on the side and opens by swinging inward.

Choose the Storm King tilt-turn window for better energy performance, simpler multi-lite configurations, installation flexibility and superior air and water tightness for increased comfort and longevity.

Features + Benefits

  • Improved ventilation: Tilt and turn windows can open inwards like a door (turn position) or tilt inwards from the top (tilt position), allowing for better airflow and ventilation control compared to single-hung windows that only slide vertically.

  • Enhanced security: Tilt and turn windows typically have multi-point locking systems around the perimeter, making them more secure against break-ins compared to single-hung windows.

  • Easier cleaning: The ability to tilt inwards makes cleaning the exterior glass surfaces much easier and safer without needing to go outside.

  • Unobstructed views: The sash design of tilt and turn windows provides an unbroken glass surface for better outdoor views compared to single-hung windows with divided sashes.

  • Energy efficiency: Tilt and turn windows generally have better airtightness and insulation properties due to their compression seals and robust construction, leading to improved energy efficiency over single-hung windows.

  • Versatility: Tilt and turn windows can be used for egress in basements or bedrooms, whereas single-hung windows may not meet egress requirements in some cases.

  • Summary: The dual opening mechanisms, enhanced security features, ease of cleaning, and potential for better energy efficiency make tilt and turn windows a more versatile and practical choice over traditional single-hung windows.
