The number of world-wide flood catastrophes is continually increasing. In Germany as well, tidal waves have already left behind their extreme scars again in 2011. Effective precautionary measures contribute to protecting homes and flats from water penetration. Roto emphasises that this applies primarily to “neuralgic points” like cellar and ground floor windows. For this purpose, the hardware specialist offers a separate solution within its universal “NT” product range. It is based on the components espagnolette, centre lock and coupling component developed specifically for this purpose. The latter enables circumferential hardware with a small locking cam distance to be realised. This especially provides a lasting increase in the impermeability of the window decisive for repelling floods. As a result, at the same time the system complies with the tests in accordance with ift Guideline FE-07/1 specified for each application case.
In addition, the hardware available for Tilt&Turn sashes made of timber and PVC also ensures permanent corrosion protection, which also plays an important role in the topic of “moisture”. The basis for this is the “RotoSil Nano” surface, which represents no ecological or sanitary health hazard and is standard equipment for all modules of the “NT” product range. By the way, the same also applies to the ten-year performance warranty.
