Retrofitting of windows made from plastic and wood in accordance with DIN 18104 part 2 also takes place discreetly, yet effectively. Winkhaus offers the varied activPilot retrofit concept for this purpose. The fittings sit discreetly in the window rebate, have no distracting surface-mounted elements and offer protection from prying attempts. If the innovative system is combined with lockable window handles and drilling protection, the retrofit fitting can fulfil requirements comparable with resistance class RC 2 for window fittings during prying attempts.
Clean installation with the builder on-site
The universal component range includes 29 fitting sets in total and therefore covers all common rectangular formats of PVC-u and wooden windows. The fittings are supplied pre-fabricated and in clear cardboard packaging. This means that window professionals have everything they need to retrofit the relevant window. The fittings are replaced directly on-site – without building dirt. Straight cropping of the drive rod and top rod is also possible and also helps to make retrofitting even easier.
Software tools for determining parts
With the retrofit fitting from Winkhaus there is no need to carry out extensive detailed measurements of the sash assembly fitting in advance. The components are cut to size at the customer’s site with minimal effort. The security keeps required for retrofitting are determined in advance by the window professional. Winkhaus has developed a handy case with samples for this purpose. Alternatively, a software tool for determining the frame parts is available to supplement the practice-orientated range on offer. Installed on a laptop or a desktop in the office, it uses the recorded dimensions to calculate the suitable security keeps. The relevant airgap, the centre rebate position and the frame geometry on the window are measured for this. The tool called “WH Profiler” runs under Windows and is available for download in the Winkhaus Partnerportal.
