REHAU GENEO

REHAU’S GENEO named product of the year

  • 20 Nov 2019

REHAU’s GENEO range of fibre-reinforced windows have been awarded the prestigious Product of the Year 2019 title, by specialist architecture publisher CallweyArchitekturverlag.

The range has been recognised in the windows category by a highly-respected judging panel from the architecture and media sectors.

In particular, the judges were impressed with its use of sustainable materials to produce a window system with outstanding energy efficiency. 

The latest of REHAU’s innovative polymer-based solutions with high-tech fibre-composite window profiles developed over the past decade, the GENEO system was launched earlier this year and features the latest iteration of REHAU’s RAU-FIPRO X material.

The patented RAU-FIPRO X profile core allows maximum stability, without the need for steel reinforcement.

By combining REHAU’s built-in IVS reinforcement system with an optimised profile design, there are no thermal bridges, allowing GENEO to achieve a U-value of up to 0.79 W/m²K and reduce energy consumption by up to 76%.

The GENEO system has also been designed to easily incorporate a range of intelligent REHAU solutions, including Smart Guard security technology and its INOVENT intelligent ventilation system which is available in Europe.

Because of the high-tech RAU-FIPRO material, floor-to-ceiling windows up to 2.80m tall and 1.60m wide can be created with specially designed composite material.

These dimensions were once considered impossible without aluminium profiles. As a result, a new benchmark for coloured frame designs has been set too, with new heights of up to 2.70m available.

REHAU’s colour creative range boasts over 400 designs. By combining the aluminium cladding with a profile from the wood-effect range, designers can give their windows a classy look with the blend of Alu Top exterior and the wood effect interior.

The colour creative range looks and feels like wood, but has the added benefits of being durable and easy to maintain.

Peter Kotzur, REHAU’s Director of Marketing for Window Solutions, commented: “The GENEO has paved the way for architects to have more freedom than ever before to create the perfect windows.

“Our highly-developed materials expertise allows us to create flexible, smart window systems that meet the most demanding standards in terms of design and aesthetics.

“The award is further proof of this, because homes that win Callwey Verlag awards are the acknowledged benchmark for quality in the German-speaking world.”
