Alpha Tilt & Turn Frame

Description

Tilt and turn inward opening window is a versatile and practical solution that provides controlled ventilation, easy maintenance, security, energy efficiency, and aesthetic appeal in residential and commercial buildings.

Tilt Function: One of the primary uses of a tilt and turn window is its ability to tilt inward from the top. This feature allows for controlled ventilation while maintaining security and privacy. When tilted, the window creates a small opening at the top, which allows fresh air to enter the room while preventing access from the outside, making it ideal for times when you want ventilation without fully opening the window.

Turn Function: The second primary use of a tilt and turn window is its ability to swing open inward like a door. This function provides easy access to the outdoors and allows for maximum ventilation when fully opened. It’s particularly useful for cleaning the exterior glass from the inside of the building, as well as for emergency egress in case of fire or other situations requiring a quick exit.

Versatility: The tilt and turn mechanism offers versatility in how the window can be operated. Users have the option to either tilt the window for controlled ventilation or turn it fully open for maximum airflow and access. This versatility makes tilt and turn windows suitable for various architectural styles and room layouts.

Security: Tilt and turn windows typically feature multiple locking points around the frame when fully closed, providing enhanced security against intruders. Additionally, the inward opening design makes it difficult for outside forces to force the window open from the outside.
Energy Efficiency: When properly sealed and closed, tilt and turn windows offer excellent insulation properties, helping to improve energy efficiency by reducing heat loss during colder months and minimizing heat gain during warmer months.

Aesthetics: Tilt and turn windows can contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal of a building, offering a modern and streamlined look. They are available in various colour finishes to complement different architectural designs.
Sound Insulation: The material properties of these windows also contribute to sound insulation, minimizing external noise intrusion and creating a quieter indoor environment.

Secured by Design (SBD) is the official police security initiative that works to improve the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings to provide safe places to live.

SBD’s product-based accreditation scheme – the Police Preferred Specification – provides a recognised standard for all security products that can deter and reduce crime.  This includes domestic windows and doors, and the components within them such as locks, hinges etc.

Janex is a registered member of Secured by Design and many of our products have been tested to meet the demands of the standard.

A U-Value, in simple terms, indicates how well your window will be at retaining the internal heat within your property and preventing it from escaping to the outside.  U-Values are measured in Watts per square metre, or W/m2 K. The lower the U-Value number, the better the heat retention of the window. All new or replacement windows require a minimum U Value of 1.6 W/m2 K.
