One of the most innovative and modern window styles available today, tilt & turn windows are ideal for homeowners who reside in high-rise apartments thanks to their inherent safety qualities. Because they can be titled inwards towards the user as well as the traditional opening out method, tilt & turn windows can be cleaned from the inside and provide lashings of ventilation without leaving a large aperture open.
Suitable for: Contemporary homes and high-rise apartments.
Sliding sash windows are one of the oldest window styles currently still in use, initially originating from the Georgian period. It’s because of this that vertically sliding sash windows are ideal for those lucky enough to live in a period-style home or maybe even a conservation area. Readily customisable to look as authentic or contemporary as you’d like, sliding sash windows allow for great ventilation and can be operated with a smooth sliding action.
Suitable for: Any style of property, but works particularly well for traditional homes.
