TILT and TURN WINDOWS FEATURES
1. Slightly rounded edges give the classical design.
2. High Thermal Insulation Values up to uw=1,0 W/m2K (U-Value 0.176 BTU/H*ft2*F, R-Value 8.9) are achievable (depending on glazing) and reduce heating costs noticeably.
3. High quality gaskets are standard in an attractive grey and comprise a system of dual compression-seals that keeps the cold, draft and moisture outside.
4. Galvanized Steel Reinforcing used according to tilt-n-turn fabrication requirements, supports the structural integrity and operational reliability.
5. Chamber Profile with a basic overall depth of 70 mm (2-3/4)
SAVE ENERGY & REDUCE COSTS
Because of multi-chamber technology, tilt-n-turn profiles have an enormously low heat transmission value. This reduces your energy use and heating and cooling costs.
The excellent insulation performance of profiles guarantees a noticeable difference in overall room temperature providing a sense of well-being throughout your living space. Furthermore reliable weather seals don’t give cold and draft a chance.
Depending on their position and accessibility, the windows have to satisfy unique security requirements. Based on your individual needs, window profiles can be fitted with specialized hardware, glazing and handles to improve resistance to forced entry.
OPTIMAL NOISE REDUCTION
Noise exposure affects the living comfort and can also impact your health. Even the basic version window produced protects against sound transmission. Tilt-n-turn profiles are fabricated to the highest possible level of Sound Transmission
VALUE NOW & IN FUTURE
New windows are a great investment that increases the value of your home. These high-quality, low maintenance, and easy to clean windows (with their stylish and uniform surface) remain good looking for years to come.
UPVC - pure vinyl, will never fade or change color over time. Make sure you get UPVC, not PVC ( recycled plastic that cracks, fades ).
A thermal bridge is created when materials that are poor insulators come in contact, allowing heat to flow through the path. Sunview tilt-n-turn windows and doors have 18 insulating chambers which prevent thermal bridging.
The outer chambers are routed to continuously ventilate the windows and doors, to maintain higher insulation values. In addition, this helps lower your heating and cooling bills.
Every window and door is reinforced with galvanized steel. Because of this the tilt-n-turn windows and doors are incredibly strong and have a very high structural rating.
LASER CUT CORNERS
All frames and sashes are laser-cut and then fusion welded at 468 degrees F. The frames on our windows and doors will never split or gap, as is commonly seen in wooden windows or PVC windows with out steel inside. All our Tilt and Turn windows are steel reinforced.
Insulated glass units sometimes fail because they sit in water or moisture. This moisture heats up during the day and then cools down at night. This convective motion can break the seal on insulated glass and cause it to fog up inside. You’ll never see that on our tilt-n-turn windows. That’s because Sunview Windows and Doors sells windows that utilize a five-degree interior pitch on their frames and sashes. This keeps water continually draining. All glass units are also raised up from frame so they never have to sit in moisture for any period of time.
INSULATED GLASS UNITS
Frames are a 70mm deep system that can accommodate Insulated Glass Units (IGUs) up to 1 7/8 “ thick. All IGUs have a minimum of ½” of air space between the inboard and outboard glass panes. Additionally, this glass is coated with Low-E, resulting in an extremely energy efficient window system that qualifies for federal tax credits.
The maximal thickness of insulated glass unit in European Tilt and Turn Windows is 1inch and 7/8.
GASKETS and DRAINAGE
Sunview tilt & turn windows and doors use triple seal compressing gaskets and overlapping frames and sashes to make this the ultimate water/air tight system. These windows and doors have one continuous gasket throughout the frame which seals tightly in the corners.
