We are delighted to confirm Winkhaus UK Ltd as an official Accoya System partner.

Working in conjunction with Accsys, Winkhaus products have been tested to EN 1670 corrosion protection class 5, the highest level available, which requires emersion in a salt water mist for 480 hours. Once the testing requirement was reached, testing continued with our standard coating achieving a 66% overrun above the class 5 requirement.

George Smith Winkhaus UK Senior Product and Technical Manager commented “To ensure that the high quality of all our products is continuously maintained, all Winkhaus door and window locking systems are coated in-house. These test results show our continued commitment to both precision and innovation by developing and manufacturing door and window locking systems of the highest quality.”

Now, Winkhaus UK Ltd have become an official Accsys system partner; with the Winkhaus Surface Technology for Door and Window Locking Systems officially validated for use in conjunction with Accoya.

The partnership provides opportunities for door and window fabricators to continue using Winkhaus hardware with a highly durable and stable material like Accoya wood.

Steve Ashton – Technical Support Manager for Accsys confirmed that “after many years of supply association, Accsys are pleased that Winkhaus UK has fully tested and validated their specialist surface technologies as being fit for purpose and ideal for use with Accoya. We welcome Winkhaus as a strong addition to the Accoya System Partner programme.”
