The universal central locking system, universal handle and modular sliding system combination distinguishes Roto as the “Patio Alversa” hardware product range’s “characteristic DNA” that has initially been available in the PVC and timber sector since the middle of November 2016.
Thanks to the “intelligent platform strategy” the parallel and Tilt&Slide system window fabricators’ manufacturing, storage and logistics expenditure is sustainably reduced to a minimum.
The response so far to the portfolio that is offered in four versions confirms that the core promise is generating great interest among customers.
Modularity, amongst other things, plays an important role. It combines “NT” or “AL” hardware range elements such as espagnolettes and corner drives with “Patio” specific components such as bogies, scissors-sliders and track sets.
The assemblies aligned to each other and standardised operation steps in practice simultaneously gave rise to several plus points.
Firstly, they enable quick and easy installation. The flexible replacement of individual components permits a quick production changeover between parallel and Tilt&Slide solutions including the different ventilation functions.
This includes combining a “PS Air” and “PS Air Com” versions’ parallel sliding system with tilt ventilation. Secondly, the modular principle therefore makes complex custom-made products superfluous in every respect.
Thirdly, the high usage of the same components also significantly reduces warehouse workload and master data lifecycle management.
The new “Patio Alversa” generation’s specific customer benefits are therefore fundamentally based on the component system’s qualities, confirms Roto summarising this distinguishing feature of the universal hardware.
