Not content with just bringing its G-Award winning Lumi window and doors to this year’s FIT Show, Apeer has announced that it will also be unveiling its new easyPilot Nordic window locking system; another innovative industry first that has been developed in association with leading hardware specialist, Winkhaus.
Unlike a standard restrictor, which only opens to one position, the easyPilot Nordic system allows the window to be locked into any opening position, simply by using the window’s handle. The system is exclusive to Apeer’s Lumi windows in the UK and will feature on all the company’s Lumi window products to be displayed on stand 208 at The FIT Show.
Asa McGillian, Apeer’s Managing Director and inventor of the Lumi window, said: “We have been working with Winkhaus for years and we know from experience that they supply reliable, high quality products. I like to think we re-invented the window with the ‘edge to edge’ glazing that Lumi offers, but now we’ve developed it one stage further with the addition of the easyPilot Nordic locking system. It’s a neat and functional design that offers far greater flexibility than a standard restrictor – you can now open the window to any position and then securely lock it in place with just a turn of the handle.”
The easyPilot Nordic window locking system is a 22mm backset, torsion bar brake lock that has been developed and rigorously tested by Apeer and Winkhaus, and is exclusive to Apeer’s Lumi range of windows in the UK.
Lumi is the G15 award winning range of customisable, matching frameless windows and bi-folding patio and residential doors from Apeer. The triple glazed units are bonded to an internal GRP subframe for unrivalled strength and energy efficiency – they are visually stunning, but also extremely practical for installers as they can be re-glazed on site if required.
