LARGE GLASS FRONTS
FOR MORE LIGHT

Daylight in living areas is becoming increasingly important, which is why there is also a trend towards large formats for windows and doors.

ANGULR  PROFILES AND
SLENDER ELEVATIONS

In the case of PVC windows, angular profiles and slim frames with shallow basic depths of around 74 mm, for refurbishment from 70 mm, for higher energy savings 80 mm and more are the order of the day.

Of course all surfaces are weatherproof, impact and scratch resistant and easy to clean ___

SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT DESIGN

he use of recycled material, which is usually found in the core of the profile, plays an increasingly important role in the product design of new PVC windows. Due to this design, a modern vinyl window profile consists of approx. 45 % recycled material. Visually and in terms of quality, the new windows with recycled cores naturally play in the same league as windows made from virgin material ___
