Solar powered remote control units for roof windows

  • 25 Nov 2014

The units can be used as part of Smarthome technology

The units are quick and easy to install either at the time of window installations or as a DIY retrofit, can be used as part of Smarthome technology, and the FAKWRS2 features a wireless rain sensor to activate automatic closure.

The units offer an operating distance of up to 100 metres when closed windows have an opening resistance of 150kg, whilst batteries recharge in daylight with stored energy used to operate in overcast weather or at night.

Fakro offers a range of electronic control systems to operate roof windows installed above head height and out of reach, all comprising motors which will operate in rain, wind or smoke sensors.

Electric motors with increased durability are applied as a drive to roof windows with smoke ventilation systems in public buildings such as hotels and blocks of flats.
