A tilt latch is a type of hardware commonly used in windows to secure the sashes in place. It consists of two components, a latch and a strike. The latch is attached to the sash and has a spring-loaded mechanism that engages with the strike, which is mounted on the window frame. When the latch is engaged with the strike, it prevents the sash from sliding up or down and keeps it securely in place. The tilt latch is designed to be operated easily from the inside of the window, allowing for convenient ventilation and cleaning. By tilting the sash inward, the latch can be disengaged, allowing the window to be opened or closed as needed. Tilt latches are commonly found in double-hung windows, but they can also be used in other types of windows. In addition to providing secure locking and ease of operation, tilt latches also offer energy efficiency benefits. When the sash is securely locked in place, it helps to prevent air leaks and can reduce energy consumption by minimizing the amount of heated or cooled air that escapes. Overall, tilt latches are an important component of modern window systems that provide both security and energy efficiency benefits.
