Hardware specialist VBH has reported that its Securitas Security Window Espagnolette is proving very popular with window manufacturers.
As part of the company’s greenteQ range of casement window locking systems, Securitas sits alongside the entry level greenteQ Window Espagnolette, popular PAS24 tested Invicta Window Shootbolt and the recently introduced iQ Security Espagnolette, which works with Kubu to provide smart home connectivity.
Securitas features pairs of mushroom headed cams that lock into both sides of a night vent striker plate, spreading the load if the window is attacked, rather than allowing all the force to be concentrated on one point.
Each Securitas lock has a minimum of 4 mushroom cams (2 pairs) with the larger sizes boasting 4 pairs.
Securitas is very quick to fit, as all fixings are applied in the same direction and there are no extensions to connect.
VBH advise that Securitas fits most popular profile systems currently in use, as it is available with industry standard 20 and 22mm backsets and a choice of two mushroom cam heights. As well as providing security, the mushrooms are adjustable to ease or tighten gasket compression.
VBH Marketing Manager Gary Gleeson said: “Securitas has been a popular addition to our range and is ideal for fabricators who want a robust, secure, window lock but want the ease of fitting and reduced stock-holding offered by an espagnolette type product.”
Securitas has been successfully tested on PVCu windows to PAS24, and is rated as a PREMIUM product in the Q-secure Approved Products List.
Gary concluded: “Securitas is one of many locking options already within the greenteQ range, and we will be launching more soon. This will give window manufacturers even more choice when they buy from VBH.”
