Winkhaus Hardware

Winkhaus has developed the new ActivPilot Concept swing-out hardware for wooden structures. The new original design of the elements of this system includes the use of a new type of angular transmission and scissors connected to the loop, and also features stylish responses to the frame. ActivPilot Concept hardware for wooden structures is focused on solving not only current problems, but also issues that will be relevant for construction market participants and end users in the future. The developers of this system, in addition to the technical characteristics, paid special attention to the overall design. Thus, window manufacturers and their customers will be able to appreciate the technical and aesthetic advantages of the system. Identical to the old autopilot system remained the configuration and number of elements, such as angular transmission, scissor bracket, upper loop and tire. The perimeter counter parts are attached to the frame with a single screw. For heavy doors, you can use the upper frame loop with two additional pins. It is important to note that the new system includes elements for quick installation. Powder coating of the loop group and a wide range of colors allows you to meet any customer requirements in terms of color.

The ActivPilot Concept hardware system can be used for structures weighing up to 130 kg and does not require a high density of wood, for a leaf overlap of 18 mm or 20 mm for systems with a hardware groove axis of 9 mm or 13 mm. The performance characteristics for wear and durability are confirmed by the tests DIN EN 1191 and DIN EN 13126-8, which were carried out in independent laboratories. The fittings have been certified by The Institute of window technology in accordance with QM 328. for window manufacturers, this makes it possible to apply Winkhaus fittings for CE certification of the window. In addition, when using wood with a high density of wood, Winkhaus allows you to make heavier sashes. It should be emphasized that the ActivPilot Concept hardware has passed official tests and received a certificate for the WK 2 anti-theft system.

The ActivPilot Concept anti-burglary characteristics are focused on Windows made not only from dense wood species, but also from relatively soft wood species. It is worth noting that the type of drainage channels does not affect the testing of ActivPilot Concept fittings for anti-burglary, i.e. it can be selected at random. ActivPilot fittings with a hidden loop group allow you to make structures with a sash weight of up to 150 kg, as well as adjust the sash relative to the frame in the version for wooden Windows.
