Window handles and fittings for your security

Windows are often the entry point for burglars. The police therefore recommend windows with resistance class RC 2, or even better RC 3. Effective burglary resistance starts with the window handle and fitting; it becomes complete when window frame and glazing are also considered.
With a window fitting from heroal, you get either resistance class RC 2 or 3, depending on the number of strike units. heroal WF is a modular system with which individual customer requirements can be met. When it comes to burglary resistance, this system sets future-oriented, leading standards in the industry.
The integrated anti-lift protection uses a horizontal tipping point and a mushroom lock, which also provides for great ease of use.

How can I enhance the security of my windows?

Window handles and fittings from heroal offer a high level of basic standard security. If combined with RC2-certified windows, they provide for effective burglary resistance. A higher level of security can be achieved with lockable window handles installed on the inside. For enhanced protection against burglary attempts, heroal roller shutters installed outside can be added to the window system. Security roller shutters from heroal meet resistance class RC 3 requirements, if combined with heroal security windows, they even provide for resistance class RC 4. That means that even experienced perpetrators need at least 30 min to enter the building. Most of them give up their burglary attempt within this time.

  • What is a window handle?

    Window handles are operating elements to open, tilt or close windows. Basically, a distinction can be made between standard window handles, lockable window handles and window handles that stop or latch into place. Turning the window handle causes a movement of the inside window fitting via the window gear, thus adjusting the locking points of the window.

  • How much is a new window handle?

    heroal window handles as such are in the medium price segment. If a replacement of the old locking system is also required, it is not possible to prepare a quote without having more information on your actual needs.
