Turn the handle once and the window will tilt inwards, opening at the top and providing ventilation. This setting is perfect if you want to avoid causing an obstruction or hazard by opening the window wide. Close the window and turn the handle upwards and the window opens inwards from the side, offering a large open space and plenty of airflow, and letting the outdoors into your home. At this setting you’ll also be able to reach every part of the glazing, making the tilt ’n’ turn window simplicity itself to clean and maintain. No more window-cleaning worries or expense, no matter how high off the ground your window is set.
The fact that the tilt ‘n’ turn window opens inwards sets it apart from regular, outward-opening casement windows, and makes it ideal for customers for whom an open-out window is simply not suitable because of space restrictions. The tilt ‘n’ turn window is the perfectly versatile year-round product, offering plenty of light and fresh air during the summer months, and providing superb insulation or gentle ventilation in the winter
There’s no doubt about it – colour matters. It’s as much part of your windows and doors as the glass and the frame. Colour can change everything: it can be bold and forceful, or subtle and elegant. It can shout or whisper. It can blend in or stand out. Colour’s an expression of you and what you want your home to be.
Our range includes finishes that are timeless or traditional, beautiful woodgrain effects, accent colours and on-trend shades. Pick something to enhance your home’s building materials or to suit the countryside where you live. Choose a different finish for indoors and outdoors. Communicate with colour and show off the real beauty of your home.
It’s important that locks, handles and hinges – even frames and glazing – do their job and protect you and your family. All Swish windows and doors conform to PAS 24: 2012 which covers enhanced security performance requirements for doors and windows in the UK. Look out for features like multi-point locking and egress hinges which allow a window to open to 90° for emergency escape.
You may want to consider products that have Secured By Design accreditation – this is an Association of Chief Police Officers’ initiative that aims to design out opportunities for crime. These products have extra security features built in and are available from some of our Excellence as Standard installers.

All of our window and door profiles are covered by a ten year guarantee against manufacturing defects. Your installer will offer a guarantee on the installation. Make sure that this guarantee is “insurance-backed” and offered by a DTI approved insurer. This means that if the installer goes out of business – for any reason – you are still covered.
Most guarantees will cover defects in materials and workmanship, but always check the small print. If there is anything you’re not happy with, check it out before you sign on any dotted lines.
