How secure are tilt and turn windows?

Tilt and turn windows are one of the most secure window styles available. This is because they often incorporate ultra-strong hardware and advanced multi-point locking systems as standard to robustly reinforce and prolong the life of the tilt and turn’s specialist dual-purpose opening hardware.

Intelligently tilting inwards, this unique feature allows for a secure opening of around 10cm – enabling effective ventilation that prevents your new tilt and turn window from becoming an opening, whilst simultaneously protecting small children and vulnerable adults from falling out and injuring themselves. The way they turn to completely open inwards not only boasts easy cleaning and outstanding ventilation opportunities, but they also provide an extra defence against the window from being forced or pulled open from the outside. Furthermore, tilt and turn windows provide essential security in the fight against COVID-19 via their ample ventilating possibilities.

Recognised by their minimalist, architectural sightlines, our precision engineered Nüminium Tilt and Turn windows are at the cutting edge of enduring security, strength, and performance.

Whilst state-of-the-art Euro-Groove concealed sashes, with a seen surface of just 66mm from the outside, coupled with convenient concealed vent options allow for unobstructed views and clearer openings.

What is the most secure tilt and turn window material?

Incredibly robust yet much easier to shape than steel, aluminium’s lightweight and corrosion-resistant properties make it an ideal window material in both commercial and residential settings. Aluminium windows are unmatched in the way that they achieve the maximum glazing surface whilst retaining outstanding security and strength. Savvy homeowners choose aluminium tilt and turn window frames over timber and uPVC tilt and turn windows for the simple fact that these two lesser window materials can be damaged under excessive force.

What blinds are best for tilt and turn windows?

Effective window coverings play a crucial role in preventing intruders from peering into your home to see what’s worth taking. Unlike standard window designs, most blinds and curtains are unsuitable for tilt and turn windows. Other than integrated blinds – which are sealed between the panes of glass – the best blinds for tilt and turn windows include fully adjustable bottom-up and top-down blinds. Operated on a chain mechanism, blinds like this will not obstruct or inhibit the tilt and turn window’s movement. Roller blinds and Roman blinds can also be considered, although you will need to carefully analyse how these can be effectively mounted without damaging or inhibiting the window’s smooth operational qualities.
