HARDWARE& SECURITY Targeted Marketing Assists Product Launches SAFETY FIRST »»A LOOK AT THE CURRENT CRIME statistics demonstrates that the importance of effective burglary protection, practically everywhere across Europe, cannot be overstated. Roto’s new Twin-Cam Security Lock (TSL) sets new standards in burglar-proof outward opening PVCu, timber and aluminium windows. The Roto TSL security espagnolette is characterised by a special one-piece espagnolette connecting rod with up to eight locking points. It is based on the tried and tested Roto NT technology. If the window handle is turned, the geared mechanism actuates four adjustable, reverse-action twin cams. This ensures maximum burglary protection based on PAS 24:2012 and increases the sash’s gasket-compression on the frame. Thanks to its compact design, the new Roto TSL security espagnolette is also ideal for installation in extremely small, 305 mm to 1,600 mm high or wide, windows as well as in a large range of different profiles. The new Roto TSL provides window fabricators with an extremely easy-toinstall security espagnolette. Its flexibility reduces manufacturing costs, while all of the required individual components’ clear labelling minimizes the risk of installation errors. Its 8 and 9.5 mm high locking cams enable a +/- 1 mm variable gasketcompression adjustment.

C O M »»VBH (GB) HAS CHOSEN Insight Data as its main data provider. The partnership sees VBH gain access to the Fenestration Database on Salestracker. Simon Monks, Sales Director at VBH comments: “VBH chose Insight Data Salestracker as it gives us full scope of data on fabricators and installers of PVCu, aluminium and timber window and door products. “Many of our new greenteQ products are aimed towards users of specific profiles and we need to make users aware of new developments. A prime example of this is the Invisifold Slide and Fold door system which has been developed initially for Rehau profiles. “We already have our own database but we’re realistic enough to realise that our data can never be as fresh as that from a specialist company such as Insight. Salestracker is proving invaluable in introducing products such as Invisifold to the market. “Salestracker has yielded some great new business ventures for VBH and its mobile function allows the sales team to retrieve data whilst away from an office environment.” Simon adds.
