Tilt & Slide vs. Other Types
In contrast to old fashioned sliding doors that move along a bottom track, tilt and slide doors function a bit differently. A half rotation of the handle lifts the sash up and out so that it can slide horizontally, parallel to the fixed section. The entire sash is lifted off the track and thus can be effortlessly slid open or closed.
By rotating the handle 180 degrees, the tilt function is engaged. Just like a tilt and turn window, the entire door sash tilts inwards for ventilation. Thus, you can safely leave it slightly open without letting children or pets in and out. It also minimizes the ability of bugs to fly in if not using a window screen, particularly compared to having to leave the door open as with most patio doors.
