We develop and produce to the customer's wishes with respect to virtually every established variant today but place our focus clearly on cable window regulator technology which we launched on the European market in the 70s.
In the door systems product segment, we have single-rail and double-rail cable window regulators, continuous-path regulators, compact regulators and door modules in our product range. Our window regulator systems are available as manual, electric or electronically driven or controlled variants and, depending on the customer's wishes, available with and without pinch protection and corresponding comfort features. The adjustment of roller blinds and boot cover lifters are also included in our range of services.
A good example for how we use our innovative strength to refine even a well-established system like the cable window regulator is the compact window regulator, available either as a stand-alone system with a fully pressed base plate or as a constructed modular variant.
The compact regulator masterfully combines the economic advantages of the customary systems up to now – the single-rail and double-rail cable window regulator. It is suitable for both conventional and modular door concepts. With an improved efficiency of 20%, compared to a two-rail regulator, the assembly time is reduced by up to 15% and the weight by up to 20%.
In addition, we are constantly working on optimising cable window regulator technology in economic terms, for example, by means of standardisation, modularisation and construction kit capability
Our incentive to combine the good properties of proven systems and to expand them is also included in the increased comfort needs of the end users as well as in the growing requirements from OEMs placed on us as a system supplier.
