This week, REHAU has been celebrating the news that it has been named as a finalist for two categories in this year’s G-Awards.
The 2018 G-Awards will bring together manufacturers, fabricators and installers from across the country to celebrate achievements in the glass and glazing industry.
This year, REHAU entered its popular TOTAL70 co-extruded profile into the New Product of the Year category, which assesses products on the research and testing involved in the development of the products, its innovative design and use of recycled materials and recyclability of the product.
REHAU’s TOTAL70 co-extruded profile uses recycled material from first generation PVC windows to create brand new high-quality, energy efficient window frames. The core of the TOTAL70 co-extruded window profile is made up entirely of post-consumer waste, with only the outer skin made of new polymer. It is a unique product and is believed to be the only profile in the market to use up to 100% post-consumer waste within its core.
Also entered, was REHAU’s fenestration solution designed for Coventry University’s Cycle Works student accommodation block for the Commercial Project of the Year category. The Commercial Project of the Year category aims to identify and reward projects that have thought innovatively and continuously tested the standards of design, comfort and security
REHAU and installation company Campbell Mason worked closely together to provide an innovative alternative to aluminium. PVCu profiles were used with a fiberglass centre and aluminium casings, to improve thermal performance, deliver additional strength in each window profile and offer sound reduction without compromising the aesthetics of the building.
Stephen Beresford, Head of Marketing and Communications at REHAU, comments: “We’re of course delighted to be shortlisted in both categories in this year’s G Awards. It’s certainly a competitive field for both categories so we are very pleased the judging panel recognised the innovative approach taken by REHAU both when it comes to providing solutions for projects and in our new product development.”
An independent panel of judges will now review 54 finalists who will compete for the 12 coveted trophies in the G18 Awards, set to take place on November 30th at the London Hilton on Park lane.
