Opelose

icon_menu

Windows can be opened and closed.

Now you can also "opelose" them.

Winkhaus is revolutionising ventilation as you know it with the innovative new “opelose” function. Thanks to the activPilot Comfort fitting system, a practically invisible ventilation gap approximately 6 mm wide is formed on all sides between the sash and window frame.

Windows which are opelosed are open wide enough to provide a continuous supply of fresh air in order to improve the climate in the room and to prevent damage from mildew. At the same time, they are closed enough for burglary protection, noise reduction and energy efficiency.

Innovative ventilation

Opelosing is the simple way of providing rooms with fresh air constantly,
and thus an optimal addition to the traditional opening modes of windows.

Closed.

A closed window does not enable any exchange of air. However, it provides increased burglar resistance.




Open.

Open windows bring fresh air into a room very quickly. Brief and intensive ventilation allows for an efficient exchange of air. It goes without saying that burglary protection is not possible if windows are open.

Tilted.

Tilting a window is a popular method of letting fresh air into a room. However, tilted windows cannot provide sufficient protection against draughts. What is more, this window position does not provide any burglar resistance.

Opelosed.

Opelosed windows enable a continuous exchange of air. At the same time the burglar resistance is identical to that of closed windows and draughts are avoided. For that reason opelosing is a secure alternative to the tilt position.

Good reasons to opelose your windows

Trouble-free ventilation.

Effective ventilation, even when you’re not home - opelosed windows move the sash roughly 6mm away from the frame. This means they are sufficiently closed to offer increased burglary protection up to RC2.

No more mildew!

Mildew within your own four walls is now a thing of the past. Opelosed windows are open enough to allow a continuous stream of fresh air, which maintains a healthy indoor climate and can thus effectively prevent mildew from forming.

Save energy when airing.

Fresh air without an extreme drop in temperature means lower energy consumption. A simple calculation which works well thanks to opelosed windows.

Insects stay outside.

Keep insects out at any time of day or night. Opelosed windows move the sash roughly 6mm away from the frame. Flies and mosquitoes barely have any chance of getting into the house through this narrow ventilation gap.

Simply flexible

Our activPilot Comfort PADK is the fitting with turn, tilt and opelosing functions and is so flexible that it is suitable for any field of applications. It can be used for both timber and PVC-U windows and offers similarly good burglary protection when opelosed as a closed window does.

Special solutions

The activPilot Comfort PADS fitting system can even be installed in special spatial circumstances. In fact, special windows such as round arch, studio and triangular windows can be opelosed just as conveniently as rectangular windows can – thus providing healthy ventilation for the entire house.

Smart ventilation

Opelosing fittings can be integrated perfectly in your smart home. And they can be equipped with a motor drive and radio contacts. This allows windows to be controlled at the push of a button, via remote control or even with a programmable ventilation system. Ask your local partner about our smart activPilot Comfort PADM fittings.

Easily accessible

The activPilot Comfort PAD fitting system offers the option of conveniently opening or opelosing the window from a seated position. This makes it the perfect solution for hard-to-reach windows and low-threshold doors, e.g. in senior living environments.

Opelosing and tilting: a comparison

There are many arguments for opelosing. Don’t risk it with tilting anymore. The benefits are obvious.
