Tilt & Turn Gearing - The Decision

Tilt & Turn Gearing – The Decision

by M&S Windows in Blog at April 23, 2015

Yesterday we asked you guys is you had any preference on tilt & turn gearing..
The unanimous answer was “Yes, the old one!”.

“The old one” for us is the FUHR Tipsafe Tilt Before Turn Hardware.
.. and we’re inclined to agree.

The FUHR products are great quality throughout and you guys seem to agree.


So, that’s it settled, we’re back onto the FUHR Tipsafe!


We’ve compiled some more info for those who want to really know all about the hardware they’re installing, and here it is.
