Vinyl European Tilt And Turn Windows
A Revolution in Modern Window Design
The mesmerizing European Style Tilt & Turn system turns the heads of anyone who understands the quality of the product. Designed through superior European engineering, the window locks itself in 7 places with a flud- tight compression seal which has many times the locking power when compared to an average window.
Due to the systems flexible nature, it is one of the prime options for those who wish to have a shaped but operable window. Furthermore due to its simplicity of design there are a multitude of options when customizing it. With vinyl windows, the window has the option of being painted or even more beautifully (and inexpensively) upgraded with thermofoil. Putting thermofoil on a window surface is a popular trend in Europe and Forhomes customers have been very interested in discovering the application of thermofoil to the everyday window. Thermofoil is applied to windows by taking a special type of vibrantly coloured plastic and heated/ melted onto the vinyl of a window. This does not compromise the window in any way and makes the colour much more durable when compared to traditional colouring/ painting styles.
The window itself is much stronger then the standard window but also has a much larger range of motion, of almost exactly 170 degrees, much more than the standard windows 125-135 degrees.
There exist products which can be combined with a tilt and turn window for a more interesting look. Interior miniblinds can be added which allow the window to be adjusted to your preference in shading/ lighting, as well as a new system of attached/ roll- away blinds which can completely cover all light coming through your window. This is all because the tilt and turn window has its screen on the outside.
One of the main and most appealing features is the "12 o clock" position of the handle which causes the window to tilt in. This feature allows for easy cleaning and ventilation options, permitting air to be circulated when needed without causing a large draft through your home. This is also a very stylish and appealing look and is sure to turn heads from guests in your home.
Since the tilt and turn system has two possible ways of being opened, the sash (the moving part of the window) has to be a very strong system to accomodate for the weight of the panel.
