or your home:
Below are 7 reasons why Tilt and Turn Windows & Doors style could be right for your home:
1. Stylishness and Elegence
With traces of grand style and history of the Old World, today’s European homes blend the original
designs of our ancestors with the elegance and efficiency of modern day living. Inside a European
home you will find a delicate balance of scale and spatial flow, accentuated by timeless sophistication,
and appliances and accents of the best in quality, durability, and energy efficiency. In North American,
windows and doors often go unnoticed when it comes to design, but they play an important role in the
harmony of interior decoration. Tilt and Turn windows and Tilt and Turn doors provide many practical
benefits, while adding a touch of elegance to your home. If your style is fresh, yet classic with a hint of
refined luxury, Tilt and Turn may be the right choice for your home.
When renovating your home, you undoubtedly expect your new windows and doors to stand the test
of time (without compromising your budget). European style Tilt and Turn windows and doors are
engineered to provide long lasting performance; from steel reinforced framing to a compression seal
sash with two weather seals, they provide lasting style, function, and peace of mind, without breaking
3. Energy Efficiency
Who wouldn’t like a lower energy bill? And while you’re saving money, why not lessen your
environmental footprint? The majority of Tilt and Turn style windows and doors utilize materials and
production methods that better regulate indoor temperature, improving energy efficiency and
minimizing the damaging environmental effects that contribute to climate change; due to an ability
to regulate indoor temperature, these clever windows and doors contribute to lower heating and cooling
costs, with energy savings upwards of 30% for an average home.
4. Ease of Use
Cleaning windows and doors is a task that we all dread, but the Tilt and Turn style simplifies cleaning;
exterior and interior surfaces can be effortlessly cleaned from inside of the room.
There’s no need to hire professionals to clean your exterior window panes, and there is certainly no need to climb a ladder to an upper story window to complete this task yourself.
5. Temperature Control
Opening windows on a hot summer day instead of cranking the AC is a gallant gesture, but not
necessarily an efficient one this creates air flow but not air exchange. Alternatively, turning up the
heat on a chilly Ontario fall or winter day won’t solve your temperature woes; this will only contribute
to ever increasing heating costs and environmental damage. Tilt and Turn windows and doors contain
a thick, durable air chamber built into the frame. This feature prevents cold air from being transferred
to the middle air chamber, and inhibits warm air from escaping the resulting ‘air lock’ keeps your home
comfortably cool in the summer, and cozy and warm in the winter.
6. Sound Reduction
Noise pollution can be a serious problem, especially in urban areas with heavy traffic. Even in quieter
residential areas, you and your family could easily be awoken by a sound in the night, such as the
neighbour’s dog barking or a baby crying. Tilt and Turn style windows and doors provide substantial
noise reduction, and lead to less noise in rooms where they are installed; the rubber seal and multi
point locking mechanism creates an airtight seal which improves insulation and limits noise
impact, providing you and your family with some much needed peace and quiet.
7. Increased Security
The safety of your home and family are of utmost importance, and you should ensure that your
windows and doors have appropriate security features. While the
average North American window and door has one, maybe two, locking points, European style Tilt and Turn models utilize multipoint locking hardware for added security. The sash at the top of the window or door can be tilted inward for secure ventilation and/or exit, should an emergency arise. As an added safety feature, the durable hinges and internal steel reinforcement make it nearly impossible to pry the window or door away from its locks or hinges when in the closed position. These windows and doors can not be fully opened from the outside when in the tilt position, allowing you to ventilate your home without compromising its security.
