Yale transforms hardware offering for sash windows

Yale has modernized and expanded its sash window offering with new improved products and designs of decorative hardware in a wider colour pallet, reaffirming its market leading position for spring balances and other sash window hardware.

The company has launched the new Yale Face Fix travel restrictor, which limits the movement of lower sliding sash windows to enhance safety and security, and the new Yale Sash Handle lift, which facilitates the easy operation of vertical sliding windows while providing security and durability.

Both additions help to maintain the traditional aesthetics of sash windows and are available in ten colours, including the popular anthracite grey, bronze, and brushed stainless steel.

They complement Yale’s Vertex™ and Caldwell spring balance ranges, which enable the smooth operation of sash windows while prolonging the lifespan of the window by reducing operating forces and wear.

The Yale Vertex range includes both pre-tension and wind-up spring balances. The former are suited to larger sash windows, while the latter are suited to lighter, smaller windows such as those made of aluminium or secondary glazing vertical sliding sashes.

Pre-tension balances are manufactured bespoke to the window, accounting for weight, glazing, size, and profile to deliver a perfectly tailored solution, and wind-up balances have been designed to suit range of window weight and sizes. Both include tilt-in and non-tilt options for windows weighing between 2kg and 45kg.

The Caldwell offering includes the Spirex, Ultralift, and Torso II ranges, each providing outstanding mechanical assistance, longevity, and economy. The Ultralift range is designed for sashes ranging from 4.5kg up to 31kg, while the Torso II range has been designed for sashes starting from as little as 3kg up to an impressive 45kg.

Grant Stratford, Technical Director for Window Hardware at Yale, comments: “Our Vertex and Caldwell spring balances provide the ultimate solution for sash windows and are designed and manufactured to the highest standard at our centre of excellence for window hardware in Cheltenham, as well as other ASSA ABLOY factories. This means we can ensure that functionality is second-to-none, and in the case of the UK-manufactured products, allows us to respond rapidly when our customers make an order.

“With the new additions to our decorative hardware range – which mean we now offer both Face-Fix and Side-Fix travel restrictors – we have further enhanced our offering to sash window fabricators.”
