Yale Launches Vertex Hardware Range For Sash Windows

by | Jun 17, 2021 | Hardware

Yale has launched its complete Vertex range of vertical sliding hardware for the easy opening and closing of sash windows – the result of months of intense development by the company’s technical experts.

Suitable for PVC, timber and aluminium sash windows, the Vertex package is made up of a combination of balances and functional and decorative hardware that together provide what the company describes as the ultimate solution for sash windows across a range of industry profiles.

Grant Stratford, Technical Director for Window Hardware at Yale, comments: “The Vertex package represents a massive investment for us, involving a number of bespoke machines at our Cheltenham facility. It’s the result of some extremely clever engineering, as well as many consultations with independent experts over an extended period.

“As with all our products, the package has been rigorously tested, so users can rest assured that it will work with their windows for many years.”

Central to the Vertex offering is the spring balance, a specially engineered helix rod that, thanks to its spiral movement, takes on up to 80 percent of the operational force – ensuring ease of opening with no sticking sashes for all users.

For sashes up to 60kg in weight, the package provides pre-tension balances tested to 20,000 cycles, these are made bespoke to each window, taking into account the weight, glazing, size and profile to deliver a perfectly tailored solution.

For lighter and smaller windows between 2kg and 18kg in weight and 200mm width and 1800mm high – such as those made of aluminium and secondary glazing vertical sliding sashes – this package offers wind-up balances tested to 10,000 cycles.

All balances in the Yale Vertex range are available in white, brown, black and grey tubes.

The Vertex package features a variety of functional hardware, designed for maximum efficiency and ease-of-use. Among these are the pivot bar and its carrier, which allows for easy lift or slide assembly of the sash to the frame. The patented pivot shoe has been cleverly designed to incorporate a 3 way braking system giving an additional locking advantage over traditional designs, along with an easy connection to the spring balance.

Also within the range is sash security blocks to give that extra security feature and protection against intruders, while the tilt arms and tilt restrictors (available in standard or quick release versions) allow users to choose between tilt modes to make cleaning and maintenance more convenient.

The combination of Yale Vertex hardware has been designed with security in mind and complies with the test requirements of PAS24:2016

As well as functional solutions, the Vertex package features a range of decorative hardware, pre launched last year and now also available from stockists. This is comprised of pole rings, sash lifts, finials, travel restrictors, sash locks and keeps – all available in a variety of traditional colours and tested to 240 hours of salt-spray exposure.

The decorative hardware in the Vertex range is designed to complement the traditional aesthetics of sash windows commonly found in British period-style homes.

All the products in the Vertex range have been designed and manufactured at Yale’s dedicated manufacturing facility in Cheltenham, ensuring their functionality is second-to-none.

The Vertex range is covered under the well—established Yale Lifetime Security Guarantee, which includes up to £3,250 towards repairs or replacements, insurance excess and securing the property in the event of a break-in, plus discounts on the Yale store.

Paul Atkinson, Managing Director at Yale, comments: “We are delighted to be launching Vertex the comprehensive VS hardware system, it is the culmination of a great deal of hard work by the technical team at Cheltenham and significant investment in our UK manufacturing base. Vertex marks a brand-new venture into a new hardware sector for Yale, and one that we’re very excited about. We believe this is a product range that will be very well received in the sliding sash windows market.”

To support fabricators and installers, Yale has produced a series of videos on the new Vertex range. These are available to view here: www.yaledws.co.uk
