Tilt Turn VS Crank Push Out Casement Window

  1. Crank casement windows are hinged on the side and crank open outward to the left or right and allowing full top to bottom ventilation. So both windows allow for effective ventilation.
  2. Tilt turn type allows wind sash swing into the door, but crank open type swings the sash outward. Inswing opening is a safe design especial for high buildings as well as easier clean but it will occupy space in room. Crank open may occurs dangerous falling from high altitudes and hard clean inside. Use crank open for villa and tilt turn open for apartment is a reasonable idea.
  3. Tilt turn window is able to tilt the top of sash into the room for 10mm like a hopper window and allowing ventilation during bad weathers or night. Crank open window may occurs leakages into the room in raining days and instability in windy days of opening the window.
  4. Both tilt turn and crank opening window is well sealed with proper EPDM seals and lock pressure. So the window performance on air tightness, water tightness, sound proof, anti-wind pressure and heat insulation are both perfect by choose same configuration of glass combination.
  5. Crank opening is more popular in Europe and tilt turn opening is more popular in America.
