Fittings - Additional elements

Tontor assembles its windows and doors using reputable fittings from the German company Winkhaus. Features of the windows are decided by the type of fittings located between the sash and the window frame. Standard hardware fittings allow opening, tilting and closing the wing but comfort of these actions depends on additional features. ActivPilot is an innovative and new to the market fitting system. It offers a numbers of features enhancing comfort, convenience and safety. Obtained certificates provide assurance of high quality and durability and modern design gives windows an attractive appearance.


Micro-ventilation is a standard used in tilt & turn wings. After turning the handle a 3mm gap will form between the upper part of the frame and the sash, allowing a constant flow of fresh air into the room.

Misshandling lock with lift

The mishandling lock with lift is a mechanism designed to halt any deviation from its normal operation mode such as trying to open the window when it is already tilted. An additional element is that the wing is lifted, this provides for a smooth transition from open to closed this is especially recommended for large windows.

Graduated wing tilt

Graduated wing tilting allows the setting of the wing to one of five positions simply by turning the handle to the next level. In this way you can regulate the intensity of the ventilation according to current needs, this reduces unnecessary heat losses. The tilt wing is also protected from slamming shut in high winds. This mechanism is particularly useful in kitchens, bedrooms or bathroom windows.

Anti-slam tilt lock

Anti-slam tilt lock locks the wing in place at its maximum tilt position, preventing its slamming shut due to wind movement.

Patio latch with handle

Patio latch with handle is used to close the doors from the outside. A slight push will put them back into open position. This is an ideal solution for people frequently using patio doors (for gardening enthusiasts or a BBQ).

Wing opening restrictor

Wing opening restrictor protects against the wing hitting the bay during strong winds and the built-in friction brake keeps the wing open at the desired position, additionally, fitting limits wing opening angle to 90 degrees.

Window lock

The window lock allows you to block the window opening function (mainly used to protect young children), whilst at the same time, it allows the tilt function to be used freely.

Fitting groove filling

Every window’s frame profile has a fitting groove into which fittings are bolted. A rubber seal is then used to fill this groove in order to cover and protect it, this is especially important in the lower part of the frame where most of the dirt is accumulated.

Additional antiburgalry latch

The ActivPilot locking system fitting is based on a mushroom-shaped stem and standard hooks as well as anti-burglary hooks. Standard windows have only one anti-burglar latch mounted in the lower part of the frame, due to the fact that most break-in attempts are made this way. Adding an additional steel made anti-burglary latch raises the level of window security against break-ins. The more antiburglary latches, the better resistance.

Fanlight openers

Fanlight openers are used to close, tilt or turn window wings, which due to its placement in inaccessible spots cannot be open via traditional handle. Remote control of these windows is carried out from the floor level by fanlight openers, using a lever, rod, crank mechanism or in some cases by an electric drive. Regardless of the design (round, oval with arc or slant) the system opens one, two and three wing tilt windows. They are primarily used in public facilities, such as gymnastic halls, hospitals, schools or churches.

Hidden drainage holes

Each window must have drainage holes to allow discharge of the water collected between the frame and the sash. Such openings are usually placed in the frontal part of the frame and covered with special caps available in wide selection of colours.  There is also a way to drain water to the outside through the holes drilled in the bottom part of the frame; these are so called hidden drainage holes.

Threshold cover

Patio doors with a threshold have a pertruding element which is especially prone to attracting scratches and dirt. In order to protect the threshold against damage we can use a natural aluminium coloured overlay in different shapes depending on the type of the frame.
