A practical solution to providing ventilation and security to medium and high rise properties
An ideal solution for any medium or high-rise property or one with external access issues, Tilt and Turn windows offer a streamlined, contemporary appearance that suits many styles of architecture. These windows are practical: tilting inwards to provide secure ventilation, they can also be swung right into a room to allow cleaning of the outer pane or simply to give a wide-open feel to a room.
Child safety restrictors and locking handles can be incorporated as appropriate. Tilt and Turn windows made with Optima’s slim, but strong, profiles offer the minimalist appearance combined with the advanced all-round locking of highly-secure frames.
Many applications are demanding higher specification windows and Optima Tilt and Turns can achieve the very best window energy ratings of A++ and U-values of 0.8 W/m2K.
Versatility and strength
Not only are Optima’s profiles stronger, but they are built for increased insulation and weather protection which makes them the perfect choice for installation in high, exposed or difficult access locations.
The benefit of our increased overlap isn’t just one of improved weather protection – it also increases the glass to frame ratio, giving the benefit of increased solar gain and satisfying consumer demand for slimmer frames and more natural light. A range of ancillaries means that Tilt and Turns can be combined with fixed panes, or incorporated in bays with a wide choice of woodgrain and coloured foils, there is a finish to suit every type of building material or construction project.
Glazing can be supplied as either double-glazed (24, 28, 36, 40, 44mm and triple glazed) finished glass units depending on thermal or acoustic requirements.
Double weather seals with an 8mm cover ensure the performance meets the requirements of BS 6375 Part 1. Optional additional 2 seals in centre outer frame and sash.
Actual performance will depend on size and style.
