Blinds for Tilt and Turn Windows


It 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 floor windows!

Or they 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. Why?

Here is a suggestion to those who are about to have double glazing installed: - if any windows are to be tilt and turn, insist on having a minimum of 25mm or 2inch above the moving part of the window to allow a blind or curtain rail to be fitted.

In some cases customers simply accept that a blind will prevent the window from opening beyond the narrow range of tilting. This of course does not bode well for the cleaning and fire-escape theories.

You will find in some cases, venetian, vertical blinds or pleated blinds can be attached directly to the moving part of the window. These may not be aesthetically pleasing, but are very practical.

The ideal solution, in most cases would be the ‘Perfect Fit’ system, which can be fitted with narrow-slat venetian, pleated or vertical blinds.
