tilt-and-turn windows
Explanation:
For improved ventilation, a 'tilt and turn' window tilts inwards, producing less draught than simply opening a window.
For ease of cleaning, the whole window can also be opened inwards.
'Tilt and turn' windows are particularly suitable for large window spaces, including patio doors, or where security shutters are fitted to the outside of the house.
