is difficult to get a rational explanation from
Architects and Builders and Double-Glazing Companies
for their reasons for specifying and tilt and turn
windows. After all, most houses, offices, schools
and workplaces wish to install blinds,
curtains, or sometimes both at their windows. However,
tilt and turn system windows can often make it impossible
to install curtains or blinds.
So why do they do it in the first place? As you
know, Architects, Builders and Double-Glazers live
in houses too. But it is safe to assume they don't
have Tilt-and-Turn windows in their homes?
When asked, they may say "To make cleaning
easy." But they are often installed on ground
may say "They are necessary as a means of fire
escape." If that is the case, surely they would
open outwards? But as you know, they don't.
Those who have just had new double glazing installed
are often shocked to discover that their new tilt
and turn windows prevent them from installing the
window dressing of their choice. The double-glazing
salesman appears to forget to mention this drawback.
