Popular Windows Edinburgh Glass & Glazing Have To Offer
Tilt and turn windows
Tilt and turn windows have long been a popular choice for homeowners due to their weatherproofing and security features. These windows are very practical and versatile as they feature a hinge mechanism which means they can be opened in two ways.
Tilt & turn windows can be opened inwards or can be tilted from the bottom so that the top of the window is angled into the room. The smaller opening gap can help with ventilation and also help with security as no one will be able to fit through the gap.
Advantages of Tilt & Turn Windows
As mentioned previously tilt and turn windows offer a great deal of flexibility when it comes to ventilation. You do not need to have your window fully open to let air into your home, you can simply tilt it. This design will also ensure that rainwater is prevented from entering your home because of the tilt.
These windows have a huge amount of flexibility which means they are perfect for smaller rooms such as a bathroom. You will be able to open these windows without having a large window swinging back into the room.
Last but not least these windows are very easy to clean both inside and out without having to use ladders or the risk of leaning outside your window, this means, they are easy to maintain once installed as well as easy to use.
Casement Vertical Sliding Windows
Vertical sliding windows open up vertically along an embedded track. These windows are extremely popular as they include single-hung and double-hung windows. The difference in the two comes down to the operable panels.
Advantages Of Vertical Sliding Windows
This style of window has many advantages such as the fact that they are low maintenance as they are built with fewer parts than other styles of windows. These windows also use high-quality glazing which means they are extremely energy efficient with the end result being less money being paid out on your energy bills.
Vertical Sliding Windows are very easy to open, they slide up which means you will have a maximum amount of room in your home, which again is perfect for smaller rooms.
