Contemporary choice

More than 250 Profile 22 Optima Flush Tilt and Turn windows were manufactured and installed in a new-build contemporary apartment block on a prominent plot in Shirley, West Midlands.

The new-build development comprises 27 two-bedroom apartments overlooking Shirley Park which offers approximately 37 acres of open parkland.

The fabrication and installation contract was awarded to Kingfisher Windows, and the project specified flush tilt and turn Wwndows manufactured in 7016 anthracite grey. Optima Flush Tilt and Turn windows are suitable for large windows in medium or high-rise buildings and the opening sash sits inside the window frame, creating its flush appearance.

In tilt mode, the window offers secure ventilation which was important on the lower floor apartments. The tilt before turn operation improves safety, and the gearing prevents selection from tilt to turn while in tilt mode and vice versa.
