PVC sliding systems at RC 2 level
Leinfelden-Echterdingen - (rp) Certainly even easier to sell thanks to the added security: the “aluplast smart-slide” and “Gealan Smoovio” PVC sliding doors have achieved resistance class RC 2 in accordance with DIN EN 1627 with hardware from Roto. According to the producer, the effective burglary inhibition certified by an independent test institute is based in both cases on new strikers for the mullion, among other features. The additional locking points come from the “Patio Inowa” range and are precisely tailored to the PVC profiles of the cooperating manufacturers.
This is complemented by the particularly tight sealing. “The smart sliding system with the sophisticated locking mechanism is now even more attractive for window manufacturers and builders who, despite complete insulation against wind, weather and sound, aren’t willing to accept any compromises on handling, appearance and security,” highlights Roto Product Manager Aleksander Vukovic.
The “sophisticated interplay” between the profile and hardware is also retained thanks to the additional strikers. This is also important because the innovative mechanism ultimately forms the basis for the smooth automatic retraction of the sash and therefore plays a crucial part in the convenient operation of even heavy sliding doors. The locking points on the four sides of the frame are controlled by the handle only, for example.
The new security components are universally suitable for all profile materials. The quantity required for RC 2 technology depends on the format. For a 2.40m-high element, for instance, Vukovic recommends two strikers for anti-pushback function and three mullion strikers. As the Product Manager sums up, one practical feature is that the data for the precise positioning of the strikers can be determined online using the “Roto Con Orders” hardware configurator and also exported to various window construction software systems.
