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 an internal sill and surrounds. Choose from our selection of hardwoods – Natural Ash, American Cherry, Royal Oak or Far Eastern Mahogany. Each one is hand-finished to furniture standards in wax or varnish. We can alternatively offer an engineered wood, finished in brilliant white if this would suit your home better.
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 Fife, 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.
