Window technology has evolved significantly over the years. When shopping for new windows, you may be wondering if casement windows are right for your home. Below we offer very detailed information on the advantages of this type of shelter that can help you decide.
What is a pivot window?
The casement window combines the functions of vertical and horizontal tilting windows. It is a combination of hinged (also called practical or foldable) and pivoting opening systems.
The handle of Pivoting windows made of PVC It has three positions instead of two as in the above species.
In the lower position, the window is closed by pressing the sash against the frame. By turning the handle to an intermediate position, the window offers a hinged opening. Rotating the handle to the up position opens the window in a tilt and turn position.
How far can a tilt and turn window be opened?
The rotating window can be fully opened along its vertical axis, reaching an opening of almost 180º, allowing greater air circulation inside. Its vertical opening is usually up to 45º, an optimal solution to ventilate the house during the day.
Sliding windows – advantages
The main advantage of the tilt and turn mechanism is that the window can be opened in two ways. It is an ideal solution for small spaces. It also facilitates ventilation when it rains.
Closing the pressure seal on PVC hinged windows provides excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, as well as sealing the frame. Thanks to this technology, great energy savings can be achieved by reducing household consumption of air conditioners and refrigerators.
The pitch and rotation error makes it easier to ventilate the house without having to open the window completely: You save space and avoid draughts. In addition, cleaning the windows and frames becomes much easier compared to a traditional sliding opening.
Turn or window?
Not sure which system to choose? The rotating window or the hinged wardrobe?
As already mentioned, the tilt and turn system offers many advantages. The mechanism is easy to use and offers a high level of ventilation.
Up until now casement windows were only available with a vertical axis to the right or left of the window. The position of the hinges determined whether the window was on the right or left. Thanks to new innovations in window design, there are now sliding windows with a horizontal axis.
This novel type of casement window is ideal for small spaces as it can be opened from both the top and bottom. Additionally, horizontal sliding windows can be customized to open inward or outward, giving homeowners even more flexibility. Whether you’re looking for a traditional PVC window or a new and improved version, there’s sure to be the perfect option for your home.
Turn-tilt system – safety
This type of window, which is even more popular in Spain, usually has security systems when opening. This is a false shunt mechanism.
A misoperation occurs when the handle is pulled up to use the tilt and rotate function without the sash being fully closed. When this happens, a lever on the active blade is activated. This lever detects that the window is not closed and prevents the tilting operation from being performed.
This avoids the wing detaching from a point only attached to its lower form. While this isn’t a problem as the blade can be easily changed, this system helps avoid potential scares.
