Keeping homes warm and dry is important for both the health of the occupants and the integrity of the house. Proper ventilation is crucial in keeping a home clean and dry. Poor ventilation increases dampness, allows mould to grow and can damage the internal structure of the home.
Even during winter months, it's important to have fresh air circulating throughout a house. Of course leaving windows wide open poses a security risk, so alternatives need to be found.
Schlage's Verta window fasteners are the perfect solution. Featuring vent lock tips, the high profile design allows air to circulate, while ensuring the windows remain secure and locked against unwanted intrusions.
Verta's key design features include a wedgeless base for clean lines, and the lock tips remain pointing the same direction whether in vent mode or fully closed. Because both lock tips are fixed in a downward position, there are no annoying tabs to accidentally catch or snap off. Non-marking nylon pads on the lock tips allow the window fastener to operate without scratching the frame or paintwork on aluminium joinery, keeping the interior design free from unsightly marks and scratches.
Verta is a contemporary range of door and window hardware from Schlage. Constructed from marine grade stainless steel, Verta's design lines echo classical shapes infused with modern elements. Designed in New Zealand, Verta has been tested to 200,000 cycles and is suitable for residential and light commercial applications.
