Focus on the window of the future
REHAU Window Solutions and AGC Glass Europe reached a strategic milestone on July 20 in Erlangen (REHAU headquarters) in the development and marketing of innovative and future-proof solutions for windows with vacuum insulating glass. These two leaders pool their know-how and technical expertise to offer complete and sustainable solutions, providing better energy efficiency, a higher level of comfort and optimal recyclability.
A lasting solution that meets market expectations and energy challenges
For Frank Zimmermann, CTO of REHAU Window Solutions: “We are delighted with this very successful collaboration between two innovation leaders. REHAU Window Solutions is thus taking a new consistent step on the path to growth that we are actively pursuing with our customers and partners with the aim of always daring to be different and boosting our business. »
A window at the cutting edge of technology, always more ecological
Strongly committed to sustainable development, REHAU has implemented, for many years, a system for recycling production offcuts to reintegrate them into the manufacture of new EcoPuls window profiles (containing between 40 and 75% recycled raw material ). By using recycled raw material, in particular from end-of-life windows, REHAU reduces CO88 emissions linked to production by more than 2%*, i.e. 97.000 tonnes of CO2 less. Their unique EcoPuls approach to recycling represents a sustainability concept unmatched in the industry.
AGC Glass Europe's FINEO ultra-thin vacuum insulating glass (from 6 mm total thickness) also contributes to achieving unrivaled thermal and acoustic performance, better light transmission and reduced weight.
Thanks to its low weight (up to 4 times lighter and thinner than traditional triple glazing), this new glazing represents a real advantage in the production and installation phases. Thinner glazing and higher energy performance values translate into resource efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions. The monolithic construction, composed exclusively of glass, allows simple and complete recycling of the FINEO glass, which is therefore 100% recyclable.
For Serge Martin, CEO of FINEO Glass: “We are very enthusiastic about this collaboration with REHAU. This joint development will provide solutions that are perfectly in line with market expectations, through innovative, energy-efficient and sustainable products. »
The innovative combination of window and FINEO vacuum glass results in better design, better performance and even better durability.
A second collaboration between REHAU and AGC Glass Europe for the French market
We are pleased to announce a new collaboration between CLARA by AGC and REHAU France, aiming to combine the unique Clara glass design with the benefits of a REHAU branded PVC window frame. Thanks to this new partnership, we will accelerate the release on the market of one of the most modern windows of its generation in a 100% recycled and recyclable material. The Clara by Rehau window is under development and will be available in 2023 on the French market.
