activPilot Concept

Window fittings with character

The activPilot Concept fitting concept for turn-tilt windows combines functionality, perfected security technology and operating comfort. It is suitable for all profile systems, offers a high level of flexibility and fulfils the highest visual requirements with individual design coordination on the visible hinge side.

With activPilot Concept, a fitting system has been created, which sets itself apart on the market with its special design and impresses with functionality and operating comfort. 

The intelligent, clearly-structured modular activPilot system offers window builders significantly improved processing efficiency, in particular due to the drastically reduced number of components. With its future-orientated design, activPilot also sets itself apart visually on the market with its special design and shines with an innovative external appearance.

The new locking system, the option of an easy security technology upgrade and a range of other attractive additional functions are just some of the arguments in favour of the activPilot fitting system, which leaves planners lots of room for the design and implementation.

A quick response to customer wishes is always possible with activPilot. The new retrofit options, convenient operation and components with multiple uses mean that it will significantly expand the range of any window manufacturer.
