VBH supplies the Maco RAIL security espagnolette to window manufacturers across the country. It is one of a number of locking systems approved for use on Q-secure windows. RAIL is popular as it is as quick to fit as a standard espagnolette but gives the security performance of a shootbolt. There is only one component per sash (plus mushroom striker plates) and all the fixings are applied in one plane. It is designed for PVCu, timber and aluminium casement windows. Along with greenteQ, Yale and Roto, Maco is one of the leading brands when it comes to outward opening window hardware.
The Maco RAIL security espagnolette is fully tested to the latest standards.
It meets the requirements of the PAS24 security standard and also conforms to BS7412, the standard for corrosion resistance.
Most side hung windows have their handle set centrally. RAIL is available in a low handle height version which gives a handle height of 185mm. This is the REACH product, and it conforms to the same standards as standard RAIL.
