Roto is always developing improved ways to help keep homeowners safer with sensible burglary protection. An example of this is mechanical security technology. Its efficiency is primarily responsible for around 45% of planned break-ins failing during the attempt. This applies to windows and balcony doors which, according to studies, are by far the most common entry points in detached houses, with 77% of burglars forcing entry in this way.
In the Tilt&Turn range, Roto offers the “proven Quadro Safe quartet” for this, among other components. As the manufacturer states, this includes special V locking cams featuring stable security strikers with multiple screw connections, a lockable window handle and drilling protection. These four coordinated components have proven to be an “effective preventive combination” in practical applications.
Burglary inhibition in accordance with resistance class RC 2 can be achieved even with windows tilted up to 65 mm. Moreover, when elements are closed, this corresponds to RC 3 level. This is ensured by the specially designed security strikers from the “Roto NX” Tilt&Turn range, which are made from steel. By combining these “TiltSafe” components with locking cams, a lockable handle and drilling protection, the major security problem which used to be posed by “Tilt-Only windows” is permanently minimized. The high air exchange rate which is ensured at the same time additionally improves the living comfort.
