Naturally Beautiful and Secure Roto NX Power Hinge

Wood’s natural beauty has made it an increasingly popular construction material and boosted the demand for large windows. With the Roto NX Power Hinge, Roto ensures security and long-lasting quality for sash weights up to 440 lbs. (200 kg) on Tilt&Turn windows and up to 660 lbs. (300 kg) on Turn-Only windows.

Large Turn-Only, TiltFirst, and Tilt&Turn windows made from wood and wood-aluminum clad demand a great deal from hardware.  Depending on the location of the sash center of gravity, another challenge might present itself: Tilt&Turn windows and balcony doors may close inadvertently if their center of gravity is more than 33 mm above the sash overlap.

Especially in public buildings like schools, daycares, and hotels, wooden windows are often preferred for sustainability and a natural look. However, unintentional slamming of windows should be prevented at all costs.

That is why Roto offers an anti-slam device in addition to the Roto NX Power Hinge. It is designed for Tilt&Turn sashes with an opening width of 80 mm. It secures the sash in the tilt position, is retrofittable, and comes with a special drilling jig.

The Roto NX Power Hinge limits the tilt depth to 80 mm. Beyond this distance, it would be difficult to close very tall or heavy windows. For sash weights greater than 440 lbs. (200 kg), a central hinge is added. P and V cams are available as well to produce burglar inhibiting windows and balcony doors.

This robust hinge side is made with a silver powder-coated surface. However, it can also be delivered in a RAL color of the customer’s choice.

The Roto NX Power Hinge was tested in accordance with EN 13126-8:2017. The hinge side passed the durability test in accordance with class H3 with 20,000 cycles. As per its QM 328 certification, the hardware can be used for sashes with a rebate width up to 1,600 mm and a rebate height of 3,000 mm.

The demand for the Roto NX Power Hinge is expected to grow considerably. This demand stems from the need to rethink operating safety for large wood and wood-aluminum clad windows and balcony doors with triple glazing.
