The drive system range of the established fitting system easyPilot Soleil can be used to make high-quality single- and double-sash turn windows and balcony doors.

  • For 1-sash (OF 1) or 2-sash (OF 2) windows
  • The fitting system consists of around just 10 items and therefore focuses directly on the requirements of industrial window builders regarding an efficiently organized fitting system.
  • With easyPilot, only one drive rod is required per window type, as the connecting rails can be used in multiple ways as fixed or extendible components.
  • This means that you require less storage space, which reduces your storage costs and also lowers your capital commitment costs through faster goods turnover.

Component connection

  • The coupling technology tried-and-tested from the Winkhaus activPilot turn-tilt fitting system guarantees a significantly simplified and reliable connection of the individual window components.

D-minus technology

  • With the D-minus technology, a symmetrical handle for OF 2 windows is already included as standard. This means that an intermediate drive is no longer required.

Handle positions

  • With easyPilot Soleil, you can achieve a wide range of special handle positions in addition to pre-defined handle heights with no problems, which enables you to fulfil individual customer wishes more effectively.

Minimum training requirements

  • With this efficiently origanized fitting system, the level of training required for employees and the total administrative costs are significantly lower than with conventional fitting Systems.


  • No routings are required in the profile for installing the fitting system. The newly designed drive can be installed on the loose profile part without screws.

Double-sash window

  • The new two-piece drive rod GK.OF.T in particular impresses window manufacturers, as it offers greater security for double-sash windows with a turn-only function. It is equipped with a shootbolt. Above this shootbolt are two solid rods, which are pushed into the shoot bolt keep in the frame when locking, thus providing the window with improved burglary protection.

Gear D-6

  • The drive rod with negative backset GAK D-6 rounds off the range perfectly.
    With its innovative shape, the module offers a direct approach to fitting double-sash windows with centrally positioned turn-tilt handles. Intermediate drives are no longer required.

Gear D 15.5

  • Winkhaus has developed a new locking drive with a 15.5 backset for turn windows especially for the French market.
