Window & Door Hardware at GlassBuild

 

ASHLAND

The complete range of DualTech hardware that integrates the tilt and lock functions of hung style vinyl windows is being featured by Ashland Hardware Systems in Atlanta. Combining simple, intuitive operation with a clean lock rail appearance, the hardware works with about 70 percent of existing window designs, which means most manufacturers do not need to make a difficult vinyl switch. With Flex-Fit technology, the connection bars flex laterally with the latch and lock units to create a custom fit to profiles. Sash fabrication is also very simple, requiring a basic one-step route operation for both the latch and lock and connecting latch to lock with a swing of the lock lever. The entire system is offered in three sub-assemblies for quick out-of-the-box installation, with no banding, threading, crimping or gearing required for connecting the system. Also designed to be consumer friendly, the window requires nothing more than a simple swing of the levers to operate the entire system and tilt the sash. DualTech combines streamline lock visuals with a concealed tilt latch to achieve a cleaner premium appearance and true market distinction, the supplier states.

 

The Optima Casement System for vinyl windows can achieve water resistance beyond any known competitive offering, the company claims. Water-tight O-ring seal technology is integrated within the operator to provide added home protection from potential water and mold damage. The high performance steel construction incorporates an advanced composite assembly that thermally insulates the operator, and significantly reduces transfer of heat and cold into the home. The multipoint lock also offers a new progressive lock-up mechanism that delivers 30 percent more vertical motion for maximum sash pull-in to close the window, and allow for easier consumer operation. The Interlocking points will withstand 450 pounds of pulling force to help pass up to AAMA DP 70, as well as Dade County Impact. The hardware is offered in a choice of trend-setting finishes that includes oil-rubbed bronze and satin nickel. The system includes a detent in the lock and operator handles to indicate that the system is in the open and closed positions. It also includes a fold-away crank handle that blends within the operator cover to eliminate interference with window covering. The hardware is designed for easy integration into current window systems, the company notes, requiring minimum changeovers in window manufacturing.

INTERLOCK USA

An ergonomic, intuitive solution for sliding doors featuring the supplier’s One-Motion operation, the new Intuition sliding door handle from Interlock USA is said to offer the ultimate in comfort and convenience for the homeowner. The hardware allows the homeowner to unlock and open the door in a single fluid motion; while in reverse, the door closes and locks in the same single fluid motion, the company explains. The modern design eliminates the lever, and the handle does not protrude into the glass area, enhancing the sightlines of any sliding door. Designed for single and multi-panel applications, the Intuition handle works in conjunction with the Interlock slim backset mortise locking system to deliver both performance and ease of use for large-scale vinyl, metal and wood sliding doors.

 

The Hahn Rollenband GP is a universal, four-way adjustable hinge designed specifically for a traditional North American door profile. Said to be the first of its kind, the hinge was designed for quick, easy installation, convenient handling, optimum security and superior adjustability on wood and vinyl doors. The universal design eliminates the need for separate set and guide hinges, left or right handing, and thus, drastically reduces inventory, the supplier notes. Featuring modern design and high corrosion resistance, the hinges are available in standard brushed stainless steel, most architectural finishes and several powder-coated finishes. Dr. Hahn products are exclusively distributed throughout North America by Interlock USA.

TRUTH

To be introduced in Atlanta, Truth Hardware’s new High Performance Hinge provides impressive performance and weight carrying capabilities, as it is capable of supporting a 140 pound sash, the supplier reports. The hinge allows manufacturers to use triple pane and laminated glass packages in larger casement windows, and meet new energy specifications and other requirements for increased window performance. The hinge features an innovative shoe design with a built-in roller that reduce friction during operation thereby providing smoother travel even under maximum load, the supplier notes.

Also being unveiled at GlassBuild is the SafeGard window opening control device. Being able to operate a window with safe guards in place to help control the opening in order to prevent accidental falls, while at the same time being able to be easily opened for egress purposes in case of an emergency, is critical in today’s building projects. While components have been introduced previously for hung/sliding windows, a reliable engineered solution for the hinged window market has not been available, the supplier states. Truth Hardware’s new SafeGard device addresses the need for a reliable, easy to install and easy to operate solution which meet today’s more stringent safety requirements such as ASTM F2090-10, the supplier states.

 

Designed specifically for the North American market, the Sentry Multi-Point Hinged Patio Door Hardware System combines flexibility with optimal security. Also being featured in Atlanta, the hardware provides intuitive functionality with a 90⁰ thumbturn located above the handle, as well as high performance adjustable hinges and multiple handle designs, the manufacturer states. All components are designed to easily adapt to current door systems.
