What are Tilt Turn Windows?

Tilt turn windows offer European styling and can achieve extensive unobstructed openings similar to a casement window. A tilt and turn have two separate functions: the top of the sash can tilt in like a hopper window, or the whole sash can turn in like a door. With the top of the window tilted in, a tilt-turn window can provide topside ventilation and prevent strong winds from blowing things off tables and countertops. When swung wide open, a tilt-turn window can capture even the slightest breeze. They also produce a large egress opening for residents to escape through in case of an emergency. The swing function also permits access to both sides of the glass for effortless cleaning.


What are Hopper Windows?

The sash of a hopper window is hinged at the base and tilts into the house. It is operated with either a crank or a handle. Because the only access to outside is a smaller opening at the top of the window, hoppers provide adequate fall security. Hopper windows feature topside venting, which is an effective way to clear a room of hot air. Hopper windows create a unique architectural aesthetic.
