TILT & TURN WINDOWS
PVCu Tilt and Turn Windows are a versatile and practical choice for homeowners, offering controlled ventilation along with easy access for cleaning.
In tilt mode, the windows can be opened inwards from the top to let in fresh air without fully opening, ensuring the property is still secure. Turn mode allows the window to swing inwards, making it easy to clean.
With a wide choice of customisation options, including different frame styles, finishes, colours, and handles, PVCu tilt and turn windows are an ideal choice for homeowners who want to combine appearance with functionality.
The first decision your customers will need to make is what kind of window profile they require – bevelled or ovolo. This choice is often influenced by the style of the property or simply by individual preference.
Bevelled profile, also known as chamfered, provides a sharper appearance, with the frame meeting the glass with an angled straight edge.
Ovolo, or sculptured profile, is a popular choice for windows in period style homes. It creates a curved shape, recessed frames and softer sightlines.
COLOUR & FINISH OPTIONS
Whatever style and finish you require for your project, the Ultimate Collection offers a huge choice to satisfy the requirements of even the most discerning customer.
EXTENDED LEAD TIME
In order to meet the government’s thermal performance targets and current Building Regulations, all replacement PVCu windows are required to achieve a U-value not exceeding 1.4 W/m²K or Window Energy Rating ‘B’ or better.
Ultimate Collection windows achieve an A+ Energy Rating with an Energy Index of 10 and a U-value of 1.4 W/m²K.
The Ultimate window has been refined and designed to protect the homes of your customers and provide them with total reassurance and peace of mind.

Supplied with a ‘Tilt Lock and Turn’ window handle that locks in both closed and the tilt position for additional safety, there is a range of colours for your customers to pick from.
As of June 15, 2022, Approved Document F of the Building Regulations that specifically relates to ventilation, requires that adequate ventilation is provided throughout a property.
In the absence of a suitable mechanical ventilation system, conforming to these regulations requires the use of trickle vents fitted into windows.
Ultimate Collection Windows are able to meet these requirements with an efficient, safe and secure trickle vent.
- Ventilators match to your chosen frame colourHooded external canopy prevents water and insects from entering the property
- With the innovative ‘Link’, the closure plate can be positioned to reduce draughts with the benefit of directing air away from the occupants
- Ventilate the property without having to open the window
Concealed Ventilation Canopy
You can also offer your customers the option of concealed ventilation.
The ventilation is built into the head of the outer frame which is concealed by a full width aluminium exterior canopy, colour and finish matched to the window frames. The same interior link vents with closure plates are used on the inside of the window.
Ali-lock Authentic External Georgian Bar
Many of your customers may decide to have decorative Georgian Bars applied to their windows for a truly authentic Georgian style.
The unique Ali-lock Georgian Bar from John Fredericks is a scribed PVCu bar, finished and colour matched to the exact same finish of the chosen windows.
The bars are connected to full length aluminium fixing strips that are bonded to the glass unit. This, combined with the spacer bar grid design inside the unit, gives the impression that each pane is a separate unit.
The innovative Ali-lock bar system ensures the Georgian grille does not shrink, warp or detach, regardless of weather conditions.
Internal Georgian Bar
In contrast to the Ali-lock External Georgian Bar system, where the bar is applied onto the outer faces of the insulated glass unit, as the name suggests, Internal Georgian Bars are held within the sealed glass unit.
Internal Georgian Bars still provide an effective feature, but with the bars inside the glass, the glass maintains a flat surface with no protrusions and are therefore easier to clean.
