For those seeking a roof window which combines good eco-credentials
with added security, Fakro roof windows now use the patented,
topSafe® system. This provides the highest standard of security and
safety currently available (Class 3 - EN 13049), its micro-opening
facility enabling it to remain secure even when open. Additional
steel reinforcement is built into the lower part of the sash, while
improved lock security and fixing screws driven in at an angle
prevent hinges being ruptured. U.K. Sales Director Phil Adams
commented, “topSafe is not used in any other manufacturer’s roof
windows and the fact that a number of our windows achieve EN13049
Class 4 adds further emphasis to the benefits that the system
provides”. The level of safety provided means most windows will
withstand the weight of an individual if stepped on.
Fakro roof windows are also made using only close-grain, knot-free, redwood pine, a growing proportion of which is from FSC approved sources. They have also been designed to enable every element to be stripped out easily for recycling.
