Yale VertexTM decorative sash window hardware arrives at Window Ware
16 June 2021
This new range is all part of Window Ware’s continuing commitment to delivering one of the UK’s broadest choices of window hardware for all kinds of casement styles and materials all under one roof.
Aside from ever-better thermal-, acoustic- and security performance, more than ever, homeowners and architects are choosing windows that deliver on form just as much as function. They want tasteful windows that help to enhance the home, express individuality, as well as stay true to the age and style of the property.
This shift in consumer thinking has given rise to increased demand for a wider choice of window styles and matching hardware such as authentic-looking heritage window furniture which looks the part on vertical sliding sash windows typically found in Georgian properties but is also a popular pick for new-build character homes.
To meet this demand, Window Ware has just expanded its product offering with a brand-new range of decorative hardware for traditional sash windows created by top-selling hardware manufacturer, Yale.
From pole rings, sash lifts and latch knobs to travel restrictors, sash locks and keeps, Yale VertexTM decorative window furniture carefully complements and preserves the original aesthetics of period sash windows. At the same time, VertexTM products offer all the usual security and performance guarantees you’d expect from a leading hardware specialist like Yale, plus they’re designed to support both modern PVCu and traditional timber profiles.
A closer look at the range reveals a sash knob which comes in two decorative designs (classic and contemporary) and a third non-decorative variant that fits into the top sash and is hidden when the window is shut. A non-handed side fix travel restrictor sits discretely within the sash and limits the opening on the lower sliding sash for improved security and safety without drawing the eye. A robust, PAS24: 2016 compliant high-security sash lock and keep is secured by a combination of 7 fixing points to resist most common methods of attack.
All visible hardware - including an optional sash keep cover - is available in a variety of traditional and modern finishes: white, satin black, chrome, champagne gold and silver. These finishes have been corrosion tested to BS EN1670 grade 4 (240hrs) and cross hatch adhesion tested to ASTM D3359 for assured long-lasting good looks. Likewise, operational performance has been thoroughly tested to 20,000 cycles as part of BS 6375 Part 2 (Classification EN 12400). Every item in the VertexTM range is also backed by 10-year mechanical and surface finish guarantees and included in the Yale Lifetime Security Guarantee when used with other Yale security hardware.
