The “Easy Load” feature also simplifies the installation process on larger sash sizes. The Maxim HP hinge is ideal for window design engineers wanting to meet today's high-demand need to bring the outside in.

Handle hardware

Kolbe's Hoppe swing door hardware now includes both a European and an American Style handle set option with multi-point locking functionality. The American Style handle set features a locking cylinder located above the handle, while the European Style lock is situated below. Unique functionality allows quick locking of the door with the deadbolt, independent of the multi-point extensions.

Available on a 35- or 45-mm backset, the American Style handle set features Hoppe’s LokRite functionality, which requires no sequential order of operation, as with the European Style. French door operation is also enhanced, as the lock prevents the secondary door from opening before the primary door.
 
Kolbe’s offering of Hoppe hardware is available in a variety of styles and finishes within the VistaLuxe WD LINE, Ultra Series, Heritage Series and Forgent Series.

Tilt & turn system

VBH's ArTech tilt & turn system is treated with Activeage ‘Hi-Protection’ coating that enables the hardware to withstand over 2,000 hours of testing in a neutral salt spray environment. Activeage is a 3-stage finish, incorporating layers of zinc, chromic passivation with silica Nano particles, and finally an organic mineral protection coating.

ArTech is available in surface fit, jigless, rebated, and concealed hinge variants, all with standard level and PAS24 security level options. Upgrading between the two is easy, with only minimal hardware changes. VBH cites the system’s security performance as a major reason why so many fabricators are switching to ArTech. Security spec windows have been tested to forces of 5.5KN, nearly double the forces specified in PAS24.
