Titon has added a dynamic and fully interactive CGI environment – the ‘Titon Product House’ – to its website, showcasing the array of products available throughout the company’s Window & Door Hardware and Ventilation Systems divisions. To launch the Titon Product House, users simply need to visit and click on the option to ‘Explore the Titon House’ in the main web banner.


In addition to the Titon’s product portfolios, the new feature also contains detailed information about indoor pollutants, as well as advice on how these can best be combatted.


Once the user has opened the house in their browser, they are free to explore the Titon Product House by selecting from ‘Window and Door Hardware’, ‘Ventilation Systems’ and ‘Indoor Pollutants’. The first option then allows a 3D property to be explored, with products such as Titon’s trickle vents, door handles and window hinges all shown in-situ. Clicking an item results in a brief product overview being displayed, alongside a link to its relevant page on the Titon website.


Similarly, selecting ‘Ventilation Systems’ allows visitors to explore the same 3D environment while looking at the comprehensive range of systems Titon has to offer, with individual illustrative configurations available for intermittent extract fans and background vents, continuous mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) and continuous mechanical extract (CME) – the latter of which can be viewed in both centralised and decentralised arrangements.


Finally, the ’Indoor Pollutants’ version of the room identifies the most common sources of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found inside a home. It also contains links to the latest expert advice and information on improving levels of indoor air quality, from renowned industry organisations such as BEAMA.


Commenting on the Titon Product House, Tyson Anderson, Sales & Marketing Director at Titon, said: “The new feature offers the perfect snapshot of all the individual items we can provide throughout the hardware and ventilation sectors – and how they can be suited together within a variety of applications.”


He continued: “As a business, Titon has designed and manufactured window and door hardware since 1972 – including handles, hinges and locking systems. This is in addition to the latest ventilation products designed to remove pollutants and improve indoor air quality for occupants. Indeed, introducing the Titon Product House now allows visitors to our website to see how our products are fitted within various rooms, as well as their features, benefits and health advantages. This will be extremely beneficial to self builders, fabricators, specifiers and homeowners alike.”

112 Maxiglaze glazed-in aluminium ventilators from Titon have been installed at the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow. The purpose-built £21m facility provides people in Glasgow, East Renfrewshire, Cambuslang and Rutherglen with the best quality of palliative care.


Designed by Ryder Architecture and built by main contractor Balfour Beatty, it is the first hospice in the UK to follow the ‘Sengetun’ model of care, which has ‘placemaking’ at the centre of its approach. The glazing contract was awarded to Castlecary-based CMS Window Systems, which delivered an extensive package of aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling.


Commenting on the project, Stephen Anderson, Aluminium Director at CMS Window Systems, said: “We chose Titon’s Maxiglaze vents based on our previous experience with the product. They have always performed to a high standard, plus they met the statutory Building Regulations and requirements for background ventilation specified for this project. Indeed, Titon is our preferred supplier of choice when it comes to glazed-in trickle vents in terms of quality, cost, service and their local representative.”


The Hospice’s innovative, state-of-the-art Scandinavian design puts patients and families first, providing space for privacy, dignity and compassionate care for all ages. The project utilised 500m2 of curtain walling, while all aluminium profiles, flashings and fixing brackets were finished in RAL 1035 (Pearl Beige).


The design of the windows and doors allows for maximum natural daylight and unobstructed views, adhering to the project brief for high performance aluminium fenestration throughout the building.


Titon’s Maxiglaze is an energy efficient glazed-in aluminium ventilator that provides an Equivalent Area (EA) of 12,000mm2 per metre of extrusion. This level of optimum performance over length means fewer vents are need to be fitted to achieve the total EA requirement. Vents are available in made to measure sizes or in bar length in a variety of colours.

Over 300 sets of Titon window hardware have been fitted as part of the ongoing refurbishment of the Rother’s Mills buildings on Mill Island, located in the historic old town of Bydgoszcz, Poland. The products installed include Overture E handles, Kenrick Standard Espags, top hung Venture hinges and Capture safety restrictors, which were all supplied onsite by Titon’s Polish distributor, AGAS.


Mill Island has been a popular tourist destination since 2006, with the Rother’s Mills buildings being one of the central attractions. Following significant investment in a number of nearby museums, the decision was then taken to refurbish Rother’s Mills with brand new windows, while allowing the buildings to retain their original characteristics.


Commenting on the project, Remigiusz Bieńkowski, Technical Sales Advisor at AGAS, said: “The historic riverside buildings have hundreds of timber windows, so required high quality hardware to ensure robustness and durability. Following extensive research, it was clear Titon offered the most suitable range of products, complying with the project’s specification, as well as the relevant building regulations. We have worked with Titon for over two and a half years, and have always been extremely impressed with the quality of their hardware and exceptional customer service. These sentiments were shared by our client Zakład Stolarski Marek Kapeja, who worked on the Rother’s Mills refurbishment.”


Daniel Obara, Export Manager at Titon, added: “We are proud to have been involved in such a prestigious project in Poland. Our hardware has certainly impressed, as another 500 windows fitted with the same Titon products are set to be installed from now into the new year. This is testament to the versatility and quality of our hardware portfolio, as we offer a wealth of handles, espagnolettes and hinges suitable for a wide range of applications.”


Overture espagnolette handles are part of Titon’s Overture suite of window and door hardware. This stylish handle is ergonomically designed to include a solid and sculptured grip, and is available in straight or handed versions, in a variety of finishes.


The Venture friction hinge range is suitable for domestic applications on side or top hung windows. It has been developed by Titon’s experienced window fittings team and is tested to the latest standards. All hinge dimensions and opening geometries have been designed to fit most window profiles. There are a number of versions in the range, including top hung, side hung and Egress Easy-Clean, available in standard or Hi Stack configurations. The addition of the Tenure Hinge Security Guard also allows the Venture hinge to meet the requirements of PAS 24 as part of a compliant window system.


The Kenrick Standard Espagnolette locking mechanism is designed to meet the requirements of the UK market – where peace of mind, performance, longevity and basic security are vital. It is suitable for use on PVCU, timber or aluminium windows.


Finally, Capture is an automatically engaging spring-loaded window safety restrictor for use on side and top hung windows to limit opening and can be retrofitted. Capture is supplied in austenitic steel and in a choice of three different lengths for use on deep sections. Various pin heights are also available to suit all cavity sizes.

Two Titon HRV10 Q Plus units with Trimbox NO2 Filters® have been installed as part of unique self-build project in East Dulwich, London.

 When architect Jake Edgley began building his own six-bedroom house, he included a mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) system as part of the design, alongside other ‘green’, environmentally-friendly measures, including non-toxic paint and flooring.

The 400m2 house was constructed in two halves, each built around a tree, with one MVHR system covering each half of the property. As Jake designs and specifies homes as part of his job, he often experiments with different products on his own property. Having included Titon’s ventilation systems on a number of projects during the last ten years, he was already fully aware of the company’s product offering.

Commenting on the decision to have nitrogen dioxide filters added, Jake said: “We noticed if a neighbour lit a bonfire or a barbecue, the smell would still enter the house. Fortunately, I had seen the Trimbox NO2 Filter® on the Titon website, so I made enquiries into the possibility of adding one to the ventilation system.” 

The bedroom area had the Trimbox NO2 Filter® added first, and the Edgley family were so impressed with the results, a second unit was installed to the other half of the house six months later.

Jake explained: “The Trimbox filters work amazingly well, they have completely eradicated any smells coming in from outside. In fact, if we smell smoke outside, we just close all the doors and windows, and there is no trace of any odour indoors. The MVHR unit is already a good dust filter and this is improved by the Trimbox, and we’ve also noticed the Trimbox acts as an excellent attenuator to any noise from the MVHR unit. Then there’s the added benefit of knowing the units are filtering out any pollutants so, despite being located about 60 metres from a road, the air inside the house remains clean and healthy.”

Jake now certainly practices what he preaches, as his positive first-hand experience has led him to include the Trimbox NO2 Filter® as part of every new build domestic ventilation system specified by his company, Edgley Design.

“The Trimbox is a great product, particularly in London areas,” he concluded. “Given the rise of environmental toxicity over recent years, we always encourage domestic clients to put MVHR systems into new build homes. Including the Trimbox as part of the system should make perfect sense to homeowners, especially given its capacity to remove diesel particulates and filter toxins from indoor air.”

Titon developed the Trimbox NO2 Filter® to complement its extensive range of HRV Q Plus Eco MVHR units and combat the high levels of nitrogen dioxide found in exhaust gases from diesel engines. The filter incorporates balanced flow technology to provide class leading absorption of NO2 and is available in two duty sizes (depending on the duty required). The product is effective in reducing NO2 to an acceptable mean annual concentration level of 40µQ /m3, while vastly improving indoor air quality (IAQ). Independent tests have demonstrated the Trimbox to absorb 98% of NO2, not only in normal, continuous ventilation mode but also at ‘boost’ or higher ventilation rates.*

Titon has joined forces with West Bromwich-based window hardware and accessories manufacturer Kenrick, to become a distributor for the company’s window and door multi-point locking range. The addition of the Kenrick products complements Titon’s existing window and door hardware offering, and creates a broad and comprehensive selection for Titon’s customers in the UK fabricator market.

The Kenrick multi-point lock portfolio includes standard espagnolettes, security espagnolettes, shootbolts and door locks, with all products available in a number of variants, including easy-fit options, according to customer requirements. They are suitable for use on aluminium, timber or PVCu, and an extensive range of profile-specific keeps are available, while new keeps can also be designed to suit new profiles.

The new distribution partnership follows a successful trial period in which Essex-based Titon sold a limited range of Kenrick items to a small number of its existing customers who specified the use of the products.

Kenrick was founded by Archibald Kenrick as an iron foundry in 1791, and the company still manufactures from the same West Bromwich premises today. With the exception of standard espagnolettes, its entire range is SBD (Secured by Design) accredited, so has passed the PAS24 security testing, allowing it to work effectively in tandem with Titon’s own SBD-approved products, such as the Asterion Three Star door cylinder, friction hinges and handles.

“Kenrick has been successfully producing multi-point door locks and window hardware for many years to build up a sizeable customer base,” said Titon Sales and Marketing Director, Tyson Anderson. “As an established brand ourselves, we are delighted to have gone into partnership with such a well-respected business boasting a long heritage.”

He added: “We are confident that Titon’s considerable expertise in this field, combined with our constantly expanding sales network, will assist in growing Kenrick’s customer base even further.”
