Wintegra Windows Inc in Vancouver provides European tilt windows that offer better functionality, practicality and efficiency while adding a touch of class and elegance to your space. When you want to upgrade the windows of your home or office in Vancouver, BC, and the USA, you can count on us to serve you with a variety of high-quality and long-lasting window solutions. Tilt windows open in two directions and depending on the position of the handle, they can swing inward to open or tilt just at the top.
They are essentially three window types in one:
- Fixed window
These are easy to use, with one handle that moves the multi-point locking hardware into place and locks the window on all sides. It creates an airtight and waterproof seal against the outside and secures closure against forced entry.
- In-swing window
Turning the handle in another position allows the window to turn inwards on side hinges for rapid cross-ventilation and quick emergency evacuation.
- Hopper window
By tilting the handle, the window tilts inwards at the top to provide draft-free ventilation while maintaining security and privacy.
With over 60 years of experience in the industry, we are one of the top choices for modern and durable European tilt windows in Vancouver, BC, and the USA. Contact us to learn how we can improve the beauty and comfort of your property!
Tilt-turn windows offer dual functionality. They can be opened like a casement window, and tilted in to open at the top. The mechanics for both actions are contained within a single frame and easily regulated by a lever.
When opened like a casement window, tilt-turn windows allow maximum passage of air into a room. When opened from the top, they prevent small children from climbing up and falling through (as they can from double-hung windows).
Tilt-turn windows work well in a range of and commercial applications. Covered exterior spaces in private homes such as sunrooms or pool enclosures are the best places where the dual functionality of tilt-turn windows can be most beneficial.
This type of window is installed mostly in basements and bathrooms. The excellent ventilation they provide helps prevent enclosed spaces from becoming dull or wet.
Hopper windows open inward from the top and are hinged on the bottom. They require minimal hardware not only in installation but also in operation. The same handle that locks and unlocks the window with a single turn is also used to open it with a simple pull.
Hopper windows are almost effortless to clean from the inside since the screen is installed on the outside. Because they open inward, added security features such as grates are easy to install on the exterior of the windows.

Tilt windows offer varied ventilation options and improve your control over your environment.

On the other hand, the turn function creates ample airflow and movement for maximum ventilation.

Tilt windows are virtually impenetrable against nature. The multiple locking points and the in-swing hinges further secure the window from being forced/pulled open from the outside. They can be made with specialty glass to provide an extra layer of security and safety to your home.

We can create oversized tilt windows with seamless and single-pane designs that are able to provide airflow without any visible seams in the glass. They are the best way to highlight beautiful and unobstructed views.
