What is the difference between Tilt & Turn Windows and Sash Windows?

The major difference between tilt and turn windows and sash windows is the dual functionality that tilt and turn windows offer. Sash windows are either fixed in one position or slide up and down for ventilation. Tilt and turn windows will either swing inwards or tilt at the top to open. 

Tilt and turn windows have been the standard choice for windows in European countries for decades, but have recently gained popularity in North America. The turn function of the windows allow for easy cleaning, while the tilt function allows for efficient indirect ventilation. It’s single handle has three positions; downward is locked, horizontal to swing the sash in, or positioned upward to tilt the top of the window in.
