Roto Hardware Technology for Homes

People want to feel safe in their home and protected against break-ins. At BAU 2023, Roto showcased secure and visually appealing hardware solutions for residential windows and doors.

The material, shape, color of the window profile, and design of the handles and surface-mounted hinges, impact the appearance of building elements. By choosing “Roto NX,” window manufacturers get Tilt&Turn hardware that offers various technical options such as “TiltSafe” and “TiltFirst” technology.

You can sleep soundly with first-floor windows when they’re equipped with the “Roto NX | TiltSafe” security hardware. These windows offer burglary resistance in accordance with RC2, even when the sash is tilted. The home is further protected by “Com-Tec”-sensors that monitor the building element and report any change in status to the Smart Home central unit.

“Roto NX | TiltFirst” protects against risks that could occur when a window is wide open or slams shut after being tilted. The intelligent “tilt before turn” protective mechanism blocks complete opening of the window when the window handle is locked and stops the tilted sash in the horizontal handle position. In Munich, Roto showcased a “TiltFirst” window also equipped with “Com-Tec.”

Eberhard Mammel, Head of Product Marketing and Product Adaptation at Roto, explains the principle behind the innovative hardware product range: “The modular ‘Roto NX’ Tilt&Turn hardware system enables our customers to equip their windows to meet any functional requirement.” The trade fair presentations were designed to demonstrate this variety of options, among other benefits.

The door hinges from the “Roto Solid B” range impress with their slim design and high-quality surfaces. They are available for vinyl, aluminum, and wood doors. When adjusting the door after installation, no gaps are formed and no lateral offset occurs, as the adjustment mechanism is integrated into the hinge roller.

Two- and three-part butt hinges are also available in various surface finishes and colors. This makes “Solid B” door hinges a popular choice for external doors, as they blend in seamlessly. Depending on the version selected, the number of hinges, and the characteristics of the door profile, sash weights of up to 352 lbs. (160 kg) are possible.

Doors from burglary resistance class RC2 can be produced with all hinge versions. This makes the “Solid B” door hinges a good example of products that meet burglary resistance requirements without compromising on design.

The new “Roto Safe A | Tandeo” automatic locking system for doors can be installed on any frame material with a sash rebate height of up to 118 in. (3,000 mm). The door lock is suitable for RC2 and RC3 and has standardized three security locking points. The deadbolt in the main lock and the automatic power wedges extend simultaneously and are immediately push-back safeguarded. “Roto Safe A | Tandeo” is the first locking system on the market to be certified in accordance with the latest version of prEN 15685:2019.

The modular design of the “Roto Safe” portfolio and the standardized patterns of all locking systems reduce the complexity and stock-keeping at the fabricator. The frame components are tailored to the profile and are also compatible with our multipoint locks. Thus, door manufacturers can combine the frame components with one of Roto’s various locking systems to meet customer-specific requirements.

All hardware solutions presented in Munich have also been integrated into the “Roto City” online platform. Interested parties are able to view these solutions virtually and discuss them during a consultation with the Roto sales team.
