Specialist distributor Teal Products has once again strengthened its range of window controls, openers and actuators.
 Taking window automation to the next level, the company has introduced a brand-new, highly- versatile window control system.
Director, Sam Yiend. “The new system works in partnership with the likes of our new Micro Evo chain actuator and has been designed to create an automation package that’s incredibly easy to setup and install.”
  Merlin Network (Scotland), part of the Saveheat Group, now plans further market expansion with a £220,000 investment at its state-of- the-art design and manufacturing facility in Dalgety Bay, Fife. The company’s main market is Scotland.
Combining an intelligent weather station and intuitive control panel, the new EVC control system works with Teal’s full range of chain actuators to automatically open and close windows and rooflights. When triggered, the weather station’s rain, wind and temperature sensors will automatically operate the actuator.
“Not only does the system use wireless technology it comes with our 17+ years of industry knowledge and our full technical support – including our bespoke one-page instructions.

The record results and investment details are revealed almost one year on from the formation of the Saveheat Group, following last year’s acquisition of Merlin Network (Scotland). The newly formed group also comprises Saveheat Glass, Blairs Aluminium Systems and Blairs Timber Windows.

The new EVC control system completes a hat-trick of additions to Teal’s product line this year alone. Along with the Micro Evo chain actuator from Mingardi, the firm has also added WindowMaster’s new WMD 820 folding arm actuator. Launched in January, the WMD 820 is designed for side-hung windows and doors, providing a complete 90- degree opening in just 60 seconds.
“We’re thrilled to add the intelligent EVC control system to our line-up, allowing even complete novices to break into the window control market, increase the value of their installations and reach new business,” comments Teal Products
