Tilt Turn Windows

Tilt turn windows are very common in European homes and are gaining in popularity with homeowners and architects here in the States. There are many features and benefits of a tilt turn window that make this European style window stand out from a standard casment window. Tilt turn window operation is simple and versatile, with just a single handle. These dual functioning windows are operated by turning the handle to different positions verticall and horizontal. For the tilt function, turn the handle vertical and the window will tilt inward approximatley 5 1/2″ allowing for superior ventilation that keeps heavy drafts and precipitation out. In addition, when the window is in the tilt position, your home is still safe from intruders. If you want to fully open the window, turn the handle to the horizontal position and it can be swung into the room for easy cleaning. All of Schotten Fenster’s tilt turn windows are installed with multi-point locking hardware that maintains continuous contact with the weather strip to keep out harsh weather and noise.


Features of Tilt Turn Windows:

  • Ease of cleaning
  • Energy effecient
  • Dependable operation
  • Screen available
  • Single handle
  • Secure from intruders in the tilt position
  • Dual functioning
  • Draft free ventilation
  • European styling

Finished Products Quality

At a minimum, we use triple laminated lumber in our frames and sashes to provide maximum structural strength and insulating characteristics. This process of laminating our frames in this manner allows us to engineer the wood for strength and to optimize the efficient use of our wood stock, eliminating as much waste as possible. It also prevents us from having to use larger-diameter trees and still build a solid wood product.

Our joinery process is so precise that the gluing apprentice operating the joinery machine barely requires a rag to wipe away any excess water-based adhesive. We use double or triple rubber seals – two of which are fitted into routed channels instead of being attached with adhesives. All of our products use a Thermix warm spacer, providing and optimized thermal break. Our glazing is a silicone material that is water based, requiring no solvent other than water for application and clean-up.

All hardware is stainless steel, and is assembled into integrated multi-point locking systems which allow for the sash to literally compress the seals to the frame. This provides for maximum efficiency in controlling air or moisture passing between the sash and frame.


Made in the USA
