Over 300 sets of Titon window hardware have been fitted as part of the ongoing refurbishment of the Rother’s Mills buildings on Mill Island, located in the historic old town of Bydgoszcz, Poland. The products installed include Overture E handles, Kenrick Standard Espags, top hung Venture hinges and Capture safety restrictors, which were all supplied onsite by Titon’s Polish distributor, AGAS.
Mill Island has been a popular tourist destination since 2006, with the Rother’s Mills buildings being one of the central attractions. Following significant investment in a number of nearby museums, the decision was then taken to refurbish Rother’s Mills with brand new windows, while allowing the buildings to retain their original characteristics.
Commenting on the project, Remigiusz Bieńkowski, Technical Sales Advisor at AGAS, said: “The historic riverside buildings have hundreds of timber windows, so required high quality hardware to ensure robustness and durability. Following extensive research, it was clear Titon offered the most suitable range of products, complying with the project’s specification, as well as the relevant building regulations. We have worked with Titon for over two and a half years, and have always been extremely impressed with the quality of their hardware and exceptional customer service. These sentiments were shared by our client Zakład Stolarski Marek Kapeja, who worked on the Rother’s Mills refurbishment.”
Daniel Obara, Export Manager at Titon, added: “We are proud to have been involved in such a prestigious project in Poland. Our hardware has certainly impressed, as another 500 windows fitted with the same Titon products are set to be installed from now into the new year. This is testament to the versatility and quality of our hardware portfolio, as we offer a wealth of handles, espagnolettes and hinges suitable for a wide range of applications.”
Overture espagnolette handles are part of Titon’s Overture suite of window and door hardware. This stylish handle is ergonomically designed to include a solid and sculptured grip, and is available in straight or handed versions, in a variety of finishes.
The Venture friction hinge range is suitable for domestic applications on side or top hung windows. It has been developed by Titon’s experienced window fittings team and is tested to the latest standards. All hinge dimensions and opening geometries have been designed to fit most window profiles. There are a number of versions in the range, including top hung, side hung and Egress Easy-Clean, available in standard or Hi Stack configurations. The addition of the Tenure Hinge Security Guard also allows the Venture hinge to meet the requirements of PAS 24 as part of a compliant window system.
The Kenrick Standard Espagnolette locking mechanism is designed to meet the requirements of the UK market – where peace of mind, performance, longevity and basic security are vital. It is suitable for use on PVCU, timber or aluminium windows.
Finally, Capture is an automatically engaging spring-loaded window safety restrictor for use on side and top hung windows to limit opening and can be retrofitted. Capture is supplied in austenitic steel and in a choice of three different lengths for use on deep sections. Various pin heights are also available to suit all cavity sizes.
