The tilt-turn window, originating in Europe and popularized by passive-house and net-zero construction, is a window type with the unique characteristic of being both an inward-swing casement style window as well as a top opening hopper style window. The clever hinge and intuitive handle mechanism is specially designed to allow seamless switching between the modes via the orientation of the handle. Depending on the handle position, it can operate as a fixed window (handle in the 6 o'clock position), inward casement window (handle in the 9 o'clock position) or hopper window (handle in the 12 o'clock position). This window style combines the security, air-tightness, egress requirements and ease of cleaning of an inswing casement with the all-weather ventilation convenience of a hopper.
This product represents the latest evolution of our tilt-turn window featuring a solid oak frame and sash and exterior aluminum cladding. Solid wood is the preferred choice for windows due to its low thermal conductivity, strength to weight ratio, ease of finishing and appearance. Wood window can last generations, as evidenced by the many historic homes all over the world. That said, wood windows do require regular maintenance and can be susceptible to pests such as termites. Our wood treatment process produces a more durable wood that our internal testing has shown can withstand unprotected, direct exposure to the elements for 10-15 years before failure and can last a lifetime if properly maintained. However, for those that desire the ultimate in window technology, our top of the line wood windows feature exterior aluminum cladding alleviating all concerns with wood and the concomitant design considerations to mitigate them.
