³ MATERIALS & COMPONENTS —What’s New in Hardware TRUTH The SafeGard window open-ing control device provides a reliable engineered solution for hinged windows—some-thing previously only available for hung and sliding windows, the supplier notes. From Truth Hardware, the device is reliable, easy to install and easy to operate, while meeting stringent safety requirements such as ASTM F2090-10. Other recent introductions from the supplier include the High Performance Hinge, which offers the performance and weight carrying capabilities to allow a manufacturer to meet new energy specifications and other requirements for sash which are equipped with triple pane and/or laminated glass. A new shoe design with a built-in roller to reduce friction during operation provides smoother travel even under maximum load, enabling the hinge to support sash up to 140 pounds. 800/866-7884 | SCHLAGE The Schlage Link system has been re-launched and expanded as Nexia Home Intelligence, a smart home au-tomation system that enables consumers to remotely manage features and functions of their home, including door locks, heating and cooling, video surveillance, lights, shades and energy usage via any Web-enabled computer and most smart phones, the company explains. The system enables users to unlock the front door with Schlage locks, and switch on lights while away from home. They can also receive a text alert when their kids arrive home from school safely, the pet sitter comes and goes or a contractor arrives and then departs after completing a job, it is explained. New features include sensor scheduling for windows and doors that can be activated during nighttime hours for ex-tra security and can eliminate unnecessary daytime alerts. 800/847-1864 | We’re Part of a New Industry.
