Tilt and Turn TG

Utilizing the most sophisticated window hardware available, the Sterling TG has the appearance of a classic French Casement with traditional sections modified for thermal glazing, and interior and exterior muntin bars to match a wide variety of applications. Its beauty and ease of operation make it ideal for new home or commercial construction, or for heritage building conversions. Plus, the *Enhanced Security performance of this window is truly second-to-none.













The inward swinging tilt and turn window is operated with only one handle for an easy to use 3-position operation.

In the closed position multi-locking points ensure safety as well as an airtight fit of the weather strip system, keeping unwanted guests and the weather outside where they belong.

For daytime ventilation the window can be tilted in. This position allows gentle air movement, venting from the top of the window, but still provides security against intruders.

The turn position (also inward opening) allows maximum ventilation quickly, and easy cleaning of the exterior surface of the glass.

Operation Single or multiple sash open inward for ventilation and cleaning.  The hinge mechanism provides two separate actions, bottom hung for gentle ventilation and side hung for full ventilation and cleaning
Security The dual action hinge mechanism operates as tilt before turn.  This allows the sash to be secured in the tilt position against intruders for safe and reliable ventilation when desired
Thermal and Operational Performance The concealed, full compression weatherstrip provides an uninterupted seal, and the multi-point locking mechanism holds the sash in perfect contact with the frame.  The interior crank handle makes this the easiest of all casement window designs to operate.  Performance testing is underway to certify this design as Energystar Qualified
