Door & Window Hardware at GlassBuild
The new Reliance Casement System from Amesbury Hardware Products feature awning, washability, and egress hinges. Introduced in Atlanta, the hinges are designed to carry greater loads than anything else on the market, the company reports. The hinge components are made of 304 stainless steel to provide corrosion resistance that meets 1,000 hours of salt spray testing. The hinge shoe is made of an acetal insert with a stainless steel collar to provide low friction and a high tensile strength interaction with the track. Finally, a built-in adjustment feature allows easy adjustment for less-than-perfect installations without compromising strength.

Building on the popularity of its Fusion System, Truth Hardware showcased its next generation combination lock and tilt latch system named the Harmony System at GlassBuild America. Aptly named, the hardware integrates the check rail lock and tilt latch together in a manner which creates a new level of installation ease, the supplier states. The operator just snaps the tilt latch and screws down the lock to be ready to go.
Being able to safely and securely operate a window which has safe guards in place to help control the windows opening so as 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, Truth Hardware’s SafeGard window opening control device is said to be the first to provide a solution for casement windows. Reliable, easy to install and easy to operate, the hardware meets today’s more stringent safety requirements such as ASTM F2090-10.
