New night vent option

Kenrick has launched a range of locking systems to allow flush sash windows to be positively held in the night-vent position.

The flush sash night-vent shootbolt has been developed by Kenrick to overcome the common problem associated with some flush sash windows – a restrictive Euro groove position which doesn’t provide enough room to accommodate the double keep on the shootbolt.

Steve Williams, sales director at Kenrick, said: “Many of our customers have been frustrated because they couldn’t offer a night-vent option on a flush sash without sacrificing the external gasket on their windows. This meant that a flush sash window was either completely locked if left open and unsecured with no middle ground.

“We set about developing a solution to eradicate this problem and ultimately give the end user greater flexibility in their locking options. The end result is a unique range of night vent shootbolts, which incorporate specially designed extensions to seamlessly provide a positive night vent facility on a flush sash profile.”

The extensions are compatible with the existing gear box options on three of Kenrick’s locking systems: Excalibur, Centurion and Centurion Fast Fit.

The flush sash night-vent shootbolt comes in four sizes: 240mm-370mm, 370mm-620mm, 620mm-890mm and 890mm-1155mm.

Keeps are currently available for both Liniar and Halo flush sash windows with more profiles in the pipeline.
