Atrium Companies, Inc. is an American window manufacturer dedicated to providing quality windows throughout the nation at controlled prices. Not only is Atrium concerned with controlling every facet of their windows, from manufacturing to distributing, but they are determined to stay on the cutting edge of innovation. Such is the case with Atrium's tilt-and-turn model.
The tilt-turn window is a great design that allows the user to tilt each panel of the window inward for maximum ventilation and easy cleaning. It's very similar to the action of a casement window. The dual-action system comes from a European hardware design that Atrium has incorporated.
The one-inch insulated glass panel that comes in the tilt-turn models is low-e rated and contains argon gas insulation for extra energy efficiency. These features assure a high-performing thermal window that can help save homeowners money year-round on their heating and cooling costs.
The tilt-turn window is part of the Atrium Series 1000 line, which is manufactured as commercial-grade windows that can be used for homes as well. The vinyl windows are reinforced with steel in the sash and frame to make the tilt-turn and other window models extremely rigid and durable. They're able to withstand extreme temperatures and weather.
The windows come only in white vinyl, but have a sleek look comparable to the vinyl replacement windows that are in such high demand right now. The frames are specially manufactured so that replacement glass can be easily installed without any special tools or skills. The company does not, however, foresee any problems with their tilt-turn windows and have backed them with a lifetime warranty.
With the tilt and turn action of these windows, maintenance is a snap. Atrium recommends just using a mild soap and water mixture for wiping the frames clean and a vacuum cleaner for picking up dirt, dust and debris from the sills. And now that you can get windows that tilt and turn, you won’t have to when it comes to keeping them clean.
