Hurricane Season
The 2018 Hurricane Season will end on November 30, but hurricanes like Hurricane Michael have caused severe destruction throughout the season. Hurricanes cause extensive damage to homes, damaging windows and doors, however there is hardware available to help protect against window and door damage. 

Roto North America offers products that can help protect homes against damages caused by inclement weather and exposure to salt water.  Roto's OP08 X-Drive Operators are made with 300 Series stainless steel and are cut with patented laser technology, which hardens carbon steel and creates superior wear resistance. The performance of this product also exceeds standards set by AAMA.

300 Series stainless steel is comprised of alloys that resist corrosion and maintain their strength at high temperatures. Roto offers the  HG06 hinge and  LB08 lockbars that are available in 300 Series stainless steel. The lockbars are stamped out of rolled wire for superior strength, offered in a variety of lock-point configurations, and feature adjustable lock pins that offer the ability to control compression levels after installation.

Roto's Casement Corner Drive (CCD) is an innovative product that offers enhanced security and performance of DP100 of higher. It provides an integrated lock point positioned 3" from the frame corner for superior air/structural performance.
