The Tilt & Turn is the perfect design for our changeable British weather. If you want a little ventilation, it tilts inwards allowing a controlled draught of air to enter the room. Then – and just with the turn of a handle – it swings wide open for maximum fresh air. This clever design also makes Tilt & Turn windows easy to clean.
Lorimer Tilt & Turns are ideal for both modern and traditional homes, and combine beautifully with other designs, such as our best-selling Lorimer Casement window.
As with all our windows, each Tilt & Turn comes with a hardwood internal sill and surround in a choice of timbers and finishes. There’s Natural Ash, American Cherry, Royal Oak or Far Eastern hardwood. Each one is hand- finished to furniture standards. You can even choose a painted white finish or a stain to match the woodgrain colour of the uPVC window.
With Lorimer Tilt & Turn you can choose smart white uPVC which will never yellow, or any one from a range of colours and finishes, inside and out. Bright white can make your room look bigger, while traditional rosewood, light oak or anthracite grey woodgrain finishes can give you a richer, more opulent effect.
Every Lorimer window is built to order at our own manufacturing plant in Scotland. That means you can specify beautiful details including leading, stained glass and ornate astragals. We also offer a wide choice of handles in different colours and finishes.
What is uPVC double glazing?
Double glazing is the term used to describe two panes of glass within a frame, fitted to reduce the loss of heat and reduce noise. Traditionally, windows were single-glazed until the late 1970s. The CR Smith Lorimer window uses the latest double glazing technology that is available on the market today.

There are many benefits to choosing CR Smith Lorimer windows.

How long does it take CR Smith to install my double glazed windows?
Our time-served joiners will fit about four windows per day, depending on the style and finish required. By limiting the number of windows fitted, we can ensure the highest level of detail and quality is achieved.
