Intelligent windows

Rehau introduced customers to a range of new technologies at Fensterbau 2018 under the motto ‘The Rehau View’, which featured the brand’s reality and vision of networked, intelligent windows.

Among these was the Smart Guard window alarm system, which deters intruders with several levels of escalation, even before they touch the window. The Smart Air, an intelligent ventilation and air purification system, stimulates and improves indoor climate, while Smart Shading provides customers with solutions to control the level of light within their homes.

The company also showed its heritage vertical slider with a newly introduced timber weld technology, as well as woodec, a new laminate finish exclusive to Rehau.

During the show Rehau received the product label from VinylPlus for its commitment towards sustainable manufacturing. All five European window plants, as well as various Rehau system solutions, have been certified along with its glass-fibre reinforced window profiles such as Geneo and Nordic-Design Plus.

Gareth Jones, window solutions marketing and technical director at Rehau UK, said: “Fensterbau is a great opportunity for us to gain insight into the latest introductions in the market and understand the key issues that are driving the industry forward.”

A special amphitheatre was also set up on stand and presentations in both English and German took place throughout the day receiving great feedback from attendees, the company said.
