Paarhammer has visited the bi-annual expo in Nuremberg again this year, taking several key staff. As a market leader in innovation and energy efficiency, Paarhammer is always striving to be at the forefront of the window industry. Fensterbau is a great place to keep up-to-date.
Trends for the future and new hardware solutions can be seen at the world’s leading trade fair for windows, doors, facades and shading. The wish for more sustainability and comfort continues to drive innovation in the construction sector. It shows how aesthetics and design trends can be reconciled with energy-efficient building.
Another focus of the fair is on shading which is also becoming more important in Australia’s climate. West facing glazed areas are best shaded on the outside and there was a variety of shading solutions on show.
Automation is growth issue within the industry where doors are either fitted with fingerprint recognition, eye scanner or included in a whole house automation system. Sensors to open or close windows depending on temperature or moisture have been on the market for a while and are becoming more and more main stream. Paarhammer has been using such innovative hardware already on some of their products here in Australia.
Machinery is part of Fensterbau as well and Paarhammer has decided to invest and update some machines used in manufacturing windows, doors and facades with the newest technology.
