Yale has launched its complete Vertex range of vertical slider hardware following last year’s introduction of a numbe of decorative items iunder the brand.
The Vertex package now includes a combination of balances and functional hardware including a pivot bar and carrier, security blocks, tilt arms and tilt restrictors alongside the existing decorative products http://www.the-glazine.com/WeeklyFolders/glazine26may2020/yale_has_launched.htm
For sashes up to 60kg in weight, the package provides pre-tension balances tested to 20,000 cycles, these are made bespoke to each window, taking into account the weight, glazing, size and profile to deliver a perfectly tailored solution.
For lighter and smaller windows between 2kg and 18kg in weight and 200mm width and 1800mm high – such as those made of aluminium and secondary glazing vertical sliding sashes – this package offers wind-up balances tested to 10,000 cycles.
All balances in the Yale Vertex range are available in white, brown, black and grey tubes.
Grant Stratford, technical director for window hardware, said: “The Vertex package represents a massive investment for us, involving a number of bespoke machines at our Cheltenham facility. It’s the result of some extremely clever engineering, as well as many consultations with independent experts over an extended period.”
The combination of Yale Vertex hardware complies with the test requirements of PAS24:2016
The decorative package comprises sash lifts, finials, travel restrictors, sash locks and keeps – all available in a variety of traditional colours and tested to 240 hours of salt-spray exposure.
The Vertex range is covered under the Yale Lifetime Security Guarantee, which includes up to £3,250 towards repairs or replacements, insurance excess and securing the property in the event of a break-in, plus discounts on the Yale store.
