Roto North America Introduces the X-DRIVE HD Program

Roto North America would like to introduce the X-DRIVE HD Program: a heavy-duty hardware system that allows Casement window sashes to reach weights up to 200 lbs. on a 40” by 90” window. Our program includes X-DRIVE HD operators, the Supreme Hinge, Limiter, and 14.5” Facemount Track.

X-DRIVE HD Operators are available in both OP06 and OP08 platforms in 304 SST. Utilizing Roto’s existing X-DRIVE operator platform, the HD operators meet AAMA industry standards achieving 8,000 cycles and are rated to C –AW40. A heavy sash is no concern, as the Supreme Hinge and 14.5” track together with our operator reduce operating force at the crank handle.

Our 14.5” Facemount Track includes a slider made of low friction materials to allow the sash to glide smoothly and efficiently. This comes in both powder coated steel and 304 SST, making it perfect for resisting harsh outdoor elements.

The 304 SST Supreme Hinge track and shoe also provides an additional load capacity of up to 200 lbs. This standard 7/16” cavity premium hinge provides 4 mm of adjustment, includes a proprietary low friction coating to reduce operating force, and promotes easy sash assembly with its flared track entrance. Per Roto’s Application Hardware Matrix, the HD Dual Arm X-DRIVE Operator requires a limit device to limit opening to 60° or less. Our limiter is also constructed with 304 SST for durability to limit the hinge shoe movement in opening the window. The non-handed design also allows for fewer skus, making this system efficient and simple to install.
