Windows and doors: Single sash, Multiple-sash or tilting

The illustrations  below illustrate the many opening options available with our windows and doors. From fixed, tilt and turn to sliding options, you can configure not just the window, but each individual sash. 

Explanation of terminology

  • French casement: The term French casement is used when there are two sashes which open outwards with no dividing post in the center separating them. When opening a French casement window the tilt and turn sash is opened first, followed by the second sash.
  • Mullion: French mullion is used when there are two sash elements which open outwards and the mullion is the post in the center separating them. Two mullion windows can be opened simultaneously.
  • Fixed glazing: The glazing is fixed within the frame. Fixed glazed windows cannot be opened.
  • Tilt and turn: The sash can both be swunt out and open as well as tilted inwards. Turning the handle horizontally allows the window to be opened completely. If the handle is rotated all the way upwards 180 degrees, the window can tilt backwards. To close, merely rotate the handle back so it faces down.
  • Slide and tilt: This is used for sliding doors which can be tilted like windows, as well as slide parallel to open and close.
  • Lift and Slide: These are another type of sliding door whereby turning the handle sideways physically lifts the sash up off the frame so it can slide parallel. Rotating the handle back downwards "drops" the door back down achieving a tighter air seal compared to standard sliding doors.

User friendly windows

The illustrations below are intended to show the variety of opening combinations that are possible to configure. Please be sure to pay attention when configuring double sash windows and doors. With a mullion, you have a central piece physically separating each window whereas if you would like the ability to open both simultaneously, or simply do not want a mullion, ensure that only one of the two sashes is fitted with a turning hinge (a triangle symbol) and that the second shows a turn and tilt fitting (i.e. two triangles).

Clear communication in our online shop

We strive to present our customers with the clearest and most useful information possible. Thus, it is important to note that on all of our window symbols below (and throughout the site) are shown from the perspective of someone inside the room looking out. 

Every triangle depicted represents a way of opening, while the use of the plus symbol "+" represents a glazing type which cannot be opened. Remembering the simple guidelines will make configuring your windows as easy as possible. Nevertheless, if you have any questions or are ever unsure about part of your order, please feel free to call us!
