SECURITY APPLICATION

For those seeking forced entry into a building the windows and doors appear as the weak point in the building envelope. With Tiltco products that could not be further from the truth. The basic features of a Tiltco product are the same features that give it supreme security against break-ins.

Glass – Laminated glass upgrades allow the glass to stay intact even though the glass panes maybe cracked (video). Internal glazing beads ensure the glass cannot be deglazed from the exterior of the building.

Hardware – Multipoint locking hardware wrapping around the perimeter of the window and door products allow for a evenly distributed locking pressure that ensure crow bars, hammers and chisels do not break the seal between sash and frame.

Steel Reinforced – Galvanized steel extrusions inside the frames and sashes not only provide dimensional stability but prevent the frame from distorting under external forces.

Welded Corners – Each frame and sash are one integral piece of profile impenetrable by air and water and mechanical disassembly.

DRAFT FREE VENTILATION

 

Tilt and turn window technology has been used since the early 1930's when invented by hardware manufacturer Roto Frank. The physics behind the window function are practical and effective. The premise of the design is to provide a window that offers draft free ventilation, easy cleaning and egress.

Draft free ventilation is achieved when a user tilts the window allowing hot stagnant air at the ceiling to escape and cooler fresh air to enter the room around the sash. Drafts are broken by the sash position tilting in 4" to the interior of the building. This creates a healthier interior living space.

MULTI-POINT LOCKING

Multipoint locking hardware wrapping around the perimeter of the window and door products allow for a evenly distributed locking pressure that ensures resistance against air, water and sound infiltration. Most multi lock system can have up for 5-6 locking points depending on the size of the window or door. Hook and tongues are used at the various points of the system to provide precision compression to ensure the weathers seal and door alignment in the frame. The shoot bolts also help to achieve additional security with a bolt into the head and sill of the frame by an upward movement of the handle.

STEEL REINFORCED

Our windows are reinforced using the finest high quality reinforced steel. For many years reinforced steel has been used as a device for many concrete and masonry structures. This is mainly used for many large commercial buildings; the steel reinforcement and holds the concrete which strengthens the whole structure. The strength from the steel is ideal for UPVC windows and doors as it gives them greater strength and durability.

CHAMBER DESIGN

The chamber design ensures high acoustic and thermal isolation. The original gives remarkable possibilities in creating windows. Another key element to the chamber design is that it allows great flexibility to the design. The chamber design is well known for it popular use in both new houses and housing blocks. An advantage of the chamber design is a lowered height frame and a sash that allows increased glazing areas; therefore allows in more light into your space.

CUSTOMIZATION

 

Custom architectural shapes are a necessary option whether the project is a historical restoration or a new build. This option allows for freedom of design whilst maintaining a weatherproof profile that will be sure to keep the elements out. In addition the thermal efficiency and structural integrity of TILTCO's custom profiles are not sacrificed in producing a custom geometrical shape.

In doing so, the architect, homeowner or builder adds elegant appeal to the openings of the building. All custom geometric shapes use the same low maintenance durable finishes that all TILTCO profiles have. Although any custom shape can be created this does not make the window inoperable. TILTCO manufactures both fixed shape windows and operable units. Tilt and Turn windows can be made operable to give you a unique look while still fully functionable.

Below are various window and door configurations. TILTCO manufactures both fixed shape windows and operable units. Tilt and Turn windows can be made operable to give you a unique look while still fully functionable. Arched french doors give a unique appeal along with a full clear opening.

DRAINAGE SYSTEM

Tiltcos drainage system approach works with assuming water penetrates the exterior glazing seals and joints of the window, our system is designed to collect this water and drain it to the exterior. Drainage systems are typically preferred and are designed to include some redundancy in addressing water penetration and are not as dependent on maintenance of exterior seals because some water penetration into the system is assumed.

All tiltco drainage systems are custom and designed to aesthetically fit to match you window or door system.

CONNECTIONS

Connections are the least ductile elements in the exterior envelope system and the most prone to failure if not properly designed. The connections are required to enable the supporting elements to reach their ultimate flexural capacity without failure. They also need to remain intact foe the loads imposed by large inelastic deformation of the supporting members, which in turn can cause significant deformation of the connections.

For the exterior between the window, the connection include:
• The connection between the window glass and the window mullion, transom or frame
• The connection of the window mullion or transom and the window frame
• The connection between the window frame and the wall
• The connection between the wall and the structural frame

TRIPLE LAMINATED WOOD

Wood is used in manufacturing windows and doors to ensure stability, production methodology, selection, finish and choice of accessories. Laminated wood wood has a compact organic internal structure, standing in the natural environment without suffering major changes of properties over time. Because of this it does not stop one from personalizing or customizing the wood. It a free movement and weather resistant woodwork great for any project needs.

Laminated wood usually consists of three layers of wood stuck often stuck together with water based adhesive. The three layers of wood work separately, this helps cancel the tensions within the wood to create stability. The purpose of the triple laminated wood compared to any other wood product, is to eliminate the tension within the wood to decrease the contortion, bending, or loss of shape and dimension.

Laminated wood :

• Is more durable and resistant.
• Creates almost no condensation which allows it to breathe.
• Creates texture, and unique colour to customize the look of your space.
• Does not dilate regardless of the season.

ALUMINUM CLADDING

Aluminum cladding is cladding that is created using a thin coating of aluminum on the exterior of the product. Cladding in general is the application of one type of substance or material over a different material, effectively creating a protective layer on the underlying material. The use of aluminum, sometimes spelled "aluminium," in creating high-quality cladding is common, especially with architecture products like windows and doors.

In some instances, aluminum cladding is manufactured using a process known as extrusion. This is usually the case when the aluminum is serving as a skin over another metal. Essentially, the process calls for compressing the two metals together using some type of high-pressure equipment, or using some sort of die to create the adhesion. In both processes, extreme and constant temperatures of heat are necessary to create the necessary bond.

Available for both fixed and tilt and turn windows with a wide variety of finishes.

The advantages
• Protects wood windows from rotting
• Protects wood from extreme weather conditions
• Fully finished and sealed to expand window or door life cycle.
• Available as revolutionary Tilt & Turn windows

Fixed Window are windows that do not open. Generally more efficient because they can be more airtight and they offer the most in terms of safety and security.
Operable Windows are open. They can provide an escape in emergencies and fresh air ventilation when desired.
Tilt and Turn have special hardware that allows the window to either tilt inward, or to swing inward like a door.
In Swing/Out Swing Windows are windows that open inwards or outwards depending on the design.
Hopper Windows are the reverse of awning window in that they are hinged and open inward at the top.
Awning Windows swing outward at the bottom.
