Features and benefits
Guarantees you can depend on.
We have built up a great reputation over years of delivering a first class service and excellent products, all from our local, no nonsense all-about-you company.
From characteristic country cottages to contemporary town houses, we’re confident that our products will offer a style and finish to truly transform your home. Through constant innovation the quality, durability and security of our products is genuinely second to none. As a local company we are proud to offer British Standards BS7412/PAS24 for enhanced security.
We refuse to compromise on quality
Our windows are made from British Made, high quality MarinespecTM components, with up to 25 years anti corrosion. They are built specifically for the more exposed areas of corrosion, such as coastal environments to give you worry free performance beyond your guarantee. We believe spending more on components is worth every penny, and sets us apart from our competitors.
State of the art fabrication for best quality
We have invested millions of pounds into one of the most state of the art manufacturing facilities in the UK. This enables us to provide you with consistently high quality products at exceptionally good prices. Our loyal factory workers are well trained and take pride in their work, they really care about quality. Our machines are maintained according to a rigorous servicing regime to keep them in top condition.
Superior energy efficiency
Our ‘A’ rated energy efficient and triple glazed windows are tested by the BFRC, which will save you money on your heating bills. By law your windows and doors have to meet strict thermal performance regulations but you can be rest assured that our products exceed current requirements.
Energy saving is incredibly important and so is keeping your fuel bills down. We are continuously looking for ways to make our homes energy efficient and one way is to choose new PVCu windows and doors. Not only will they help to keep your home warmer, they will reduce your energy loss.
Don’t just take our word for it!
Our suppliers conform to strictly controlled and independently monitored Quality Management Systems such as ISO 9001, to ensure that everything is done correctly and according to best practise.
Our windows are tested independently by British Standards for security, weather tightness and strength performance. This means that periodically, we have to send them to independent test houses, in order to be tested to destruction.
These are just some of the many standards the products in our vast range conform to. Needless to say we take the quality of our products very seriously indeed.

Are tilt and turn windows secure?
You may be worried that tilt and turn windows are less secure because they have two opening and locking mechanisms. There is no need to worry! These windows have been engineered to be just as secure and durable as any other type of window, and each locking system is made to the high Secure by Design standards set by the Police Force. We know that you want to feel safe in your home, and our high quality tilt and turn windows make sure that you will. Once we’ve installed your tilt and turn windows we will show you how to use them and lock them securely so you feel comfortable.
How big can a tilt and turn window be?
Put simply, a tilt and turn window can be as large or as small as you want it to be! At Britannia, we manufacture all our tilt and turn windows in our state of the art factory, and we can create windows that fit perfectly in your home, whether you’re looking for a small bathroom window or a floor to ceiling centrepiece.
However, patio doors or French doors might be a better option if you are looking for floor-to-ceiling windows on the ground floor.
How do you use a tilt and turn window?
You can use tilt and turn windows in two different ways, depending on how much air you want to let into your home. By tilting the window open, you will allow a small breeze into your home without having to worry about security or sudden bursts of rain; the mechanism only opens a small way so outsiders can’t enter the building, and the angled window means rain will be directed away from the frame, even on windy days! For those hot summer days, turn the window on its side hinge (it opens inwards like a door) and enjoy the breeze – if you have two tilt and turn windows you can direct the fresh air through your home.
How do tilt and turn windows work?
A tilt and turn window opens in two different directions that are perpendicular to each other. One hinge is at the top (or bottom, depending on your preference) and allows the window to tilt outwards a small amount, and the other hinge is on the side. This side hinge means the door opens inwards like a door, as far or as little as you would like. These multifunctional windows are designed to give you two opening mechanisms for the price of one, and their high quality build and engineering means you won’t sacrifice on security either.
Do tilt and turn windows open inwards or outwards?
Tilt and turn windows open both inwards and outwards, but in different ways. One mechanism allows the window to tilt open outwards, giving you a small amount of ventilation but with more security and protection from the rain. If you want more air, you can open the window inwards on its side hinge, like a door. Having two opening mechanisms allows you to take control of how you want your windows to open.
What are the advantages of tilt and turn windows?
Tilt and turn windows are incredibly popular because they give you full control over how much ventilation you want in your home; this is why they are the window of choice all over mainland Europe. Some windows only provide the tilt opening, and others only the side hinged open, whereas with a tilt and turn window you get the benefits of both windows without having to sacrifice one to get the other. This means that you can get ventilation into your home whatever the weather; a small tilt for a rainy day, or a full swing inwards for a glorious summer afternoon.
