SLIDE & TILT SASH WINDOWS
Sash windows with a convenient tilt-in facility
For difficult-to access positions, such as very high windows, it is sometimes useful to have a window that can be cleaned from inside. The Slide and Tilt Sash window offers this possibility. In normal operation the sashes glide up and down as usual. However the user can tilt the top of each sash into the room to an angle of about 50-degrees, allowing safe and easy access to the outer panes for cleaning.
Another practical benefit of this window type is where the window opening presents the widest/tallest area through which to install large items such as furniture. By tilting both sashes inwards and pushing them both to the top of the frame, a large, unobstructed opening is created.
The weight of each sash is balanced by a pair of pre-tensioned spiral balances, each individually tuned to perfectly match the weight of that sash.
Like our other varieties of sash windows these are designed to ensure the highest level of weather-performance and excellent insulation.
These windows are available with both double- and heritage style (narrow) double glazing along with triple-glazing and the option of external sash horns and timber glazing bars. This makes them aesthetically interchangeable with our Slimline Sash windows.
The ironmongery for these windows comprises a sash lock, tilt-button, hook lifts and a sash stop which are all available in a range of different colours.
As with all our products, the high-quality paint system gives excellent protection against the elements for up to 10 years before re-coating is required. The flexible water-based micro-porous paint won't flake or crack as it ages, keeping the timber beneath it protected for years. Repainting is simplicity itself, usually requiring no more than a quick rub down with fine glass-paper and re-coating with top-coat.
