Rehau – Installers And Fabricators Have Their Say

Prominent PVC-U profile supplier, Rehau, has thrown open the doors of its UK headquarters to installers and fabricators so they could have their say on issues affecting the sector.

The Ross-on-Wye-based company extended invitations to local fenestration professionals in July 2022  and also demonstrated Rehau’s product and services portfolio.

Topics explored included ensuring and enhancing polymer product sustainability through initiatives such as Rehau’s own recycling project and the technical ramifications of recent uplifts to approved document L and F under the building regulations and what might happen once the Future Homes Standard comes in to play. 


 “It is a very exciting time for the windows industry. Organisations such as Rehau have a duty to keep installers and fabricators updated and listen to their views.”

Customer feedback

“It was for this reason we hosted this latest event at our Herefordshire facility, which has proven invaluable to building stronger relationships and importantly, obtaining customer feedback,” continues Rehau’s Hitchin. “Discussions sparked on the day around technical and sustainability concerns have provided us with valuable insight and will help inform us how we can best help our existing customer base.”

Sales leads

Rehau also showcased its latest products and services currently under development, including the Rio Flush Fit French Door, alongside incoming accessories and services such as the in-profile Smart Guard security alarm and the lead-generating Rehau Connect platform.

Also on display was the company’s new Window.ID service, which will allow fabricators, fitters and end-users to access key frame data including installation and inspection dates from codes printed within each frame.

The fact Window.ID will be able to provide sustainability-focused information such as the age and amount of co-extruded or virgin PVC in the frame was also a key focus, alongside demonstrating Rehau’s recycling capacity through its polymer-recycling PVCR plant.


Get invited to the next event

“With the windows market beginning to take a familiar, pre-Covid form, it is our aim to provide more customer events at our UK headquarters like the one just organised for locally-based businesses,” adds Hitchin. “It is with these anticipated visitors in mind that we recently upgraded the showroom to display our products, digital services and environmental commitments. The finished article was very well received and will become the location where we showcase new products and services.”
