There are 3 types of tilt doors around today.
The jamb, type tilt door, the track type tilt door and the counter-weight tilt door. The jamb type contains a power arm mounted to a jamb, and when the door is fully open half the door protrudes out.
The track type fittings have horizontal tracks on the top corners which gives the door a smoother opening compared to the jamb type.
It is recommended that the jamb type and track type tilt doors have restraining cables attached to the springs to reduce the chances of serious injury in the case that a spring may break. The counter-weight door is balanced with a counterweight on the side. This door is best for tight spaces only because there are no springs and the door requires little maintenance.
