How the Tilt-Turn Windows Work
The window will swing inward when opened in the turn position; alternatively, hinges at the bottom allow it to open inward at the top. Both actions are activated by the turn of a lever, which controls all the mechanics within the frame.
There are great benefits to these operations. The turn position allows ample fresh air to pass into the room; it also makes cleaning the window extraordinarily easy. When the window is open at the top, it functions as a safety precaution. Small children cannot climb up the window and fall through. The same function prevents intruders from entering a room. There is simply no way to climb up the window and fit through the small opening; but ventilation is still possible.
