  • CONCEPT MIROIR, Aluminium front doors

    By: CAIB
    Stand K 66

    With CAIB, the mirror lays siege to the world of the front door! Resolutely decorative and contemporary, these new doors combine aluminium, mirrors, inserts and glass. This alliance of bright and reflective materials opens a vast field of creative offers, perfectly in tune with current decorative trends, both outside and inside the house. These new doors are divided into 3 families:
    * Fully glazed doors with mirror motifs
    * One-piece doors with large aluminium décor outside and mirror option inside
    * One-piece doors with mirror-effect inserts.

    [FULLY GLAZED DOORS WITH MIRROR MOTIFS] These doors create a play of light between the transparency of the glazing and the mirror reflections on the outside of the door. These mirror motifs visible on the glazed surface are produced by means of a technique of varnishing on the glass (being triple glazing, the treatment is applied on the middle pane of glass), giving a real mirror effect. These doors guarantee very high security with their aminated triple glazing with break-in retarder (thickness: 48.4 mm, composition: 4.6FE/14/4/16/4FE with Argon and Warm Edge).
    [ONE-PIECE DOORS WITH MIRROR-EFFECT INSERTS OUTSIDE + PLINTH OPTION] In a simplified style, mirror-effect inlays provide reflections and brilliance for a modern and streamlined look. On certain models, a plinth made up of 5 mirror-effect inserts (optional) give further character to the front door.
    [ONE-PIECE DOORS WITH LARGE ALUMINIUM DÉCOR OUTSIDE AND MIRROR OPTION INSIDE] These one-piece, aluminium doors have large decorative inserts with brushed aluminium faces on the outside and, on the inside, offer a mirror face over the height of the door, thus combining utility with good looks. The one-piece doors have a 72 mm thick opening leaf, consisting of 2 panels of 2-mm aluminium and a 69-mm insulating core. The aluminium front doors exhibit thermal performances amongst the highest in their category: coefficient Ud = 1.4 W/m².K for the glazed doors, coefficient Ud up to 1.0 for the one-piece doors.

    * Aesthetically innovative => our objective is to exercise our creativity and offer the consumer a decidedly decorative range of front doors, given that the door has taken on a truly decorative role in our houses (both to add a personal dimension to our façades and to harmonise with our interior décor). Our innovation is to have seen how to integrate the mirror (a recognised and timeless decorative element) in our range of aluminium front doors. * Technically innovative => the decorative concept of the mirror is exemplified in our 2 families of doors: the one-piece, aluminium doors and the fully glazed aluminium doors. The realisation of this idea required the investigation of technical solutions (mirror varnishing on glass, gluing of the mirror to an aluminium backing panel and more).

    Stand J 24

    PVC joinery offering a wide range of color combinations, with several possible finishes. Innovative exterior finish PMMA (Polymethyl Methyl) touch grained for 7 new colors. Interior finish possibility of a natural wood cladding on a PVC heart (5 woods). 29 films metallized plaxage, interior and exterior wood and natural imitation. All these finishes represent over 1,450 possible combinations.

    A real energy and aesthetic balance. It combines the PVC insulation performance with the aesthetics and the warmth of natural wood and the appearance of the aluminum color with PMMA and plaxage. The use of fiber rods coextruded glass obviates the total building joinery (which degrades thermal coefficient). The thermal performance are identical to the tinted joinery throughout: Uw = 0.9 W / m²K with triple glazing Uw = 1.3 W / m²K with double glazing. This offer allows real differentiation with original and unique finishes on the market. PVC joinery thus rose to the level of aluminum or mixed wood aluminum.

    The innovation lies in the marriage of several different finishes on demand. PMMA exterior with wood trim, plaxage or tinted mass inside, interior wood trim and exterior plaxage, interior colors with a plaxage outside plaxage of another color, plaxage outside and inside tinted mass and vice versa.

    By: PROFILS SYSTEMES
    Stand F 24

    Series 713 is a casement joinery range (opening inwards or outwards) with a 70mm module equipped with progressive thermal protection (three performance levels). This system can provide either concealed handles or visible handles with elegant lines, thanks to its reduced aluminium sections. The Taïga ranges includes innovative, outward-opening frames which combine top-hung hopper opening with casement opening.

    Series 713 offers a casement joinery range with progressive high thermal protection. For a single-leaf window with double glazing rated Uw = 1,3 W/m²°c the U-values are Ug= 1,1 W/m²°c with Sw = 0,51. For triple-glazing rated Ug = 0,5 W/m²°C the U-values are 0,8 W/m²°c with an Sw of 0,45. Sound attenuation can reach an RAtr of 41 dBA. The system offers three types of thermal shielding which allow progressive high thermal protection values to meet the varying needs of the final user. The joinery comes with the choice of mitred or right-angled assembly, both on fixed frame segments and on opening framework. The right-angled opening bars are produced by a new patented system which reduces machining and thus facilitates bi-coloration. The external opening frames offer the advantage of new, original fittings which combine outward casement opening with hopper opening. Series 713 comes in two Design: Factory Spirit versions with spare, sober lines and a sleek finish.

    On interior opening sections, Series 713 offers a right-angled assembly system which reduces profile size. The originality here is a glazing bead which makes the frame perfectly watertight with excellent closing and reduces machining. On external opening sections, new fittings allow outward casement opening along with top-hung hopper opening to assist ventilation. These new fittings also permit several fastening points along the frame, giving the window excellent water-resistance.


  • GAMME WALLIS & OUTDOOR, Trapezoid shaped bio-climatic pergola system

    By: PROFILS SYSTEMES
    Stand F 24

    The Wallis&Outdoor range is a bio-climatic pergola system which allows pergolas to be built in triangular, rectangular and trapezoid shapes. It gives solar protection in summer, with slatted movable sun-blinds. In winter it allows light and solar warmth to enter. The system of slats placed on the edge of the aluminium profile provides excellent water resistance thanks to the compression of the slats on a peripheral joint on the guttering.

    The Wallis&Outdoor range of bio-climatic pergolas provides two types of slats: plain slats or tubular slats which allow pergolas dimensioned at 7000mm x 4500mm. Posts with invisible fixings drain away water from guttering. The guttering design allows posts to be placed at points best suited to the pergola’s form and situation. In this way the post does not have to be within the angle of the pergola. The slat system, which compresses a peripheral joint onto the guttering, is watertight. The Wallis&Outdoor system passed safety tests at the CSTB wind-tunnel in Nantes (report EN-CAPE 15.200C-V1) during trials for mainland France and for French overseas departments and territories. The system remained watertight during rainfall of 170 mm/h and resisted cyclone conditions (winds of 238 km/h) while remaining manoeuvrable. A patented system of slat fixation allows pergolas to be built in triangular or trapezoid form, with slat orientation adaptable to the best positions for these shapes.

    The Wallis&Outdoor pergola is innovative because it permits pergolas to be built in special shapes while remaining completely watertight. The system allows sunblind slats to be moved at angles up to 45°. The form of the slats and their control system make this possible, combined with a patented articulated slat. The movable slat system is fixed into the guttering by means of an integrated slot and is held with screws.


  • LUXLINE LA FENETRE PVC A OUVRANT CACHE, Performance is not a LUX*ury

    By: SOCREDIS
    Stand J 66

    A stylish range of PVC joinery profiles for window and French door systems with hidden sash.

    Since the sash is hidden behind the frame, the glazing is optimized by about 10% compared to a conventional PVC joinery, improving thermal performance, acoustic and light transmission, as it increases the solar factor too. Integration of a third sealing barrier brings up A.W.W. (Air tightness. Water tightness. Wind-load resistance ranking) performance to: A*4 W*9A W*A3. Not to mention that this barrier acts of burglary retardant and protects the hardware. Ensues significant economic interests as to the coloration that's henceforth required on the frame only (Case of Dual-staining): stock is then needed for sashes only. In addition, reinforcement is therefore tied to the size range and not the color. As to the frame coloration, there are many lamination, covering or lacquering solutions for modern, durable and customizable results.

    The LUXline window is innovative since its opening seems to be hidden only because of a "trompe l'oeil" effect : The outer facing of the opening is surrounded by a black seal giving the illusion of continuity with the frame. Remaining traditional carpentry , window adapts perfectly to the techniques already adopted by PVC joinery manufacturers , especially domestic parclosage system, minimizing the impact of the introduction of new products from the manufacturer.

    By: VEKA
    Stand H 62

    VEKA SPECTRAL is a new technology of PVC profiles colouring combining lamination and lacquering. Its innovation is the soft-touch with a velvet effect. This new technology gives a new dimension to the window: the PVC window is not only efficient and aesthetic but also nice to touch.

    VEKA SPECTRAL is a lacquered lamination foil giving unique visual rendering and touch. It is characterized by the high stability of its colour and its texture against the UV irradiation and its superior chemical and mechanic resistance (cleaning agents, pollution, chemicals, impacts, stripes). It also offers an exceptional resistance in extreme weather conditions (high temperature, humidity and irradiation). Even for dark colours, profiles with VEKA SPECTRAL benefit from lower heat absorption, and therefore reduced effects of dilatation. VEKA SPECTRAL does not affect thermic, acoustic and mechanical performance of PVC window. Furthermore, PVC profiles covered with VEKA SPECTRAL foil are manufactured like standard laminated profiles regarding both welding and deburring, without any additional investment from windows manufacturers.

    VEKA SPECTRAL is notable by its design. It offers new aesthetics to PVC profiles surfaces thanks to diverse material effects: ultra-matt, metallic, ultra-glossy ... with this unique "velvet" touch.

  • FENETRE RESIDENCE PVC, Process Acrylcolor

    By: PREFAL
    Stand H 85

    The Acrylcolor process allows us to offer PVC windows in color. This innovative technology called co-extrusion combines the advantages of two different materials in a single product. The windows profiles acrylcolor meet the highest technical and functional requirements.

    During the extrusion, when coloring, the element of white PVC profiles and colored acrylic glass merge inseparably. Through this merger, is born a section whose outer surface is colored and matte and withstand without weathering. The outer layer of acrylic glass is twice as hard as the surface of the white PVC windows. It has a high scratch resistance and is highly resistant to weathering. The satin surface, smooth and non-porous is insensitive to dust and dirt. The windows do not scale. They have no more needs to be repainted. The acrylcolor windows require virtually no maintenance.

    The PVC window Acrylcolor offers over 70 RAL colors in bicoloration (white inside). It provides a wide UV reflectance. The sun's rays pass through the acrylic glass layer permeable to infrared, to be subsequently refracted by the white base body. The warm-up profiles is thus minimized significantly. The thermal amplitude between the color layer and the white layer of the profile is surprisingly small.

    Stand L 54

    CAPTIVE is a radio safety solution for doors and gates featuring NO-TOUCH technology. 3 in 1 safety edge CAPTIVE is a double obstacle detector NO-TOUCH wireless transmission with the latest technology of the RADIOBAND 3G. Quick installation and easy to program offers an excellent protection to people and conductive obstacles. It is ideal for manufacturers and installers of sliding gates, roller shutters and sectional doors, for both industrial use and residential applications.

    CAPTIVE is the unique NO-TOUCH safety system with safety edge which complies with the current regulations. CAPTIVE works on the basis of a dual-contact cable detection (NC) coupled with a NO-TOUCH system using the same cable conductor to detect all elements (people, vehicles, …). Non-conductive objects are detected by the classic mechanical cable. Sensitivity detection is adjustable and inhibition of the NO-TOUCH system is planned in order not to detect the structure of the portal when the gate is going to be totally closed. The information is transmitted by RADIOBAND 3G wireless technology also integrated in the safety edge electronics. NO-TOUCH detection only works during the movement of the door.

    CAPTIVE system is innovative because it is the unique radio safety edge with a NO-TOUCH system. With the NO-TOUCH function, JCM improves the current safety edge features in the following aspects: CAPTIVE avoids damaging the gate, door or people because there is no collision. The motor does not suffer brusque door inversions allowing for a longer life for doors and gates. Vehicles do not touch the door or gate. Potential repair expenses can be avoided. Gates can work faster.

    Arialuce is an aluminum roller shutter slat, polyurethane foam insulated, modified to increase the amount of light and ventilation inside the room. Its main feature is the wide hole located in the slat’s hook, which allows, even when the shutter is closed, a superior ventilation and lighting of the room compared to those provided by the traditional roller shutters.

    The roller shutter slat Arialuce is made of aluminum filled with polyurethane foam. It is characterized by the dimension of the holes (H 5.5 mm, W 180 mm or 90 m), larger than the traditional ones, which allow, even in closed shutter position, the easy air recycling inside the house and, at the same time, the entry of sunlight. Maintaining the rooms ventilated and lighted is essential to avoid the formation of fungal microorganisms, which can cause respiratory diseases, allergies or chemical sensitivity. But the fast rhythm of modern life does not allow us, for safety reasons, to leave the windows or shutters open to ensure adequate ventilation and light in our homes. If the traditional roller shutter that guarantees protection and insulation, involves total closing and obscuration, Arialuce, in the down position but with open holes, allows also a suitable ventilation and the entrance of sunlight.

    This product differs from other similar products existing on the market by the significant size of the holes in his hook. Their dimensions are 2.5 mm height and 180 mm or 90 mm wide, while the traditional roller shutters have holes of inferior measures (2 mm height, 17 mm width). Thanks to this structural feature of the slat, the Arialuce roller shutter offers benefits related to people’s comfort and health.

  • DUERO, The thermal insulation PVC+ALL roller shutter

    By: ROLLPLAST S.R.L.
    Stand R 14

    DUERO is a bi-component roller shutter slat, made by an aluminum profile filled with polyurethane foam that couples with a PVC profile. The connection system between the two faces of the slat interrupts the thermal conductivity of metal, performing thus an break of the thermal transmittance between the internal environment and the external one. The use of this roller shutter helps to the reduce energy demand for air conditioning in summer and heating in winter.

    DUERO roller shutter slat is formed by coupling two sections made of different materials, the PVC profile and the aluminum profile, filled with insulating foam. The coupling system between the two faces of the slat stops the thermal conductivity of the metal. Thus, thanks to the aluminum, placed outside, and to the PVC, placed inside, the slate creates a break in the transmission of the heat between the outside and inside of a dwelling. The thermal conductivity of the aluminum element is interrupted at the connection points with the PVC profile. We have, therefore, a roller shutter that creates an interruption of the "thermal bridge" of the facade, which significantly reduces the coefficient of the thermal transmission. The value of the validated additional thermal resistance ΔRsh is 0.207 m2K/W. Therefore, thanks to its ability to provide superior thermal insulation, the main advantage of this product is to reduce the waste of resources and energy.

    The use of metal (aluminum or steel) or PVC for the manufacture of the roller shutter slates is widely used on the market. Nevertheless, these materials present limitations related to thermal insulation (especially metals) and strength (for PVC). The difference between DUERO and a traditional roller shutter consists of the bi-component structure of the profile, PVC and aluminum, providing thermal insulation and mechanical strength at the same time.

  • RAY-NC, The next generation of Non-Contact Edges

    Stand L 85

    RAY-NC is the next generation of Non-Contact Safety Edges. Due to its smart, self-adjusting software RAY-NC adapts to its environment making it work independently from the door design. The sensor reliably detects every type of reflection and will be EC type test approved shortly, which allows retrofitting to any door. It is user friendly and easy to install since it is resistant against vibration and misalignment.

    RAY-NC features two sensors that are installed on opposite corners of an automatic door. If IR light beam between them is interrupted, a warning signal is sent to control unit to stop the motion of the door to avoid a collision. In RAY-NC, a software algorithm differentiates between transmitted and reflected light. This minimizes the chance of a failure to recognize an obstacle, which can happen in conventional systems. New intelligent sensor approach uses a broader IR light beam (±10°, compared with ± 5° in conventional systems), foregoing critical alignment of transmitter and making system more tolerant to shocks and vibrations. RAY-NC modules extend below the lower edge of a vertical-moving door while it is open, and retract into protective housings when it is closed. Operating range is 9 meters, enough for most wide commercial and industrial doors. RAY-NC is suitable for outdoor use: all components have a protection rating of IP65 and an operating temperature range of -20 to 55⁰C.

    RAY-NC uses a software algorithm that can filter out reflected IR signal that could cause the door not to stop and hit the obstacle. Such algorithm allows for a broader IR beam to be employed, hence the system is more resistant to shocks, flexing of the door and does not require precise alignment. Contactless system avoids the need to perform the maximum permissible force test on the door. Its EC type test approval allows RAY-NC to be retrofitted to any door without further certification.

    MyPricer is the first 100% web-based application software carpentry suppliers can provide to their craftspeople clients who don’t have specialised software. This application makes it easy to create accurate, sales-oriented quotes and place complete, precise orders with only an internet-enabled tablet, PC or smartphone. No more paper price lists! MyPricer is an excellent prospecting and customer service tool that saves time and money for manufacturers and their clients.

    Today 30,000 craftspeople get materials directly from suppliers or distributors. The result? The supplier has to distribute many price lists, process quote requests, and manually enter orders with all the problems of using paper: time-consuming data capturing, data entry errors, incomplete orders, and more. These “hidden costs” can represent 8 to 12% of the order’s total value. MyPricer greatly reduces manufacturers’ hidden costs: Granting access is simple: with one click, the manufacturer can invite a client to create an account. After account creation, they can immediately access the application. With this web technology, suppliers can distribute large numbers of price lists and update them in real time at a lower cost. For users, the estimating tool is simple and intuitive, and doesn’t require them to install any software. The craftsperson can manage client files, create and modify quotes, and send orders to their manufacturer. The manufacturer receives precise and complete orders in PDF or XML format. With MyPricer, hidden costs now only make up 2% of the transaction value. Since MyPricer is hosted by ELCIA, there is no need to spend money on servers. ELCIA also handles application maintenance and administration, guaranteeing uninterrupted service, data security and confidentiality, and quick response times.

    MyPricer uses ELCIA's new web configurator where product and price parameters are defined. Using this configurator, the craftsperson configures products with all the options their end customers need. ProDevis, ELCIA's best-selling software solution, uses this same configurator, which can also be sold to manufacturers and branded for use on their websites or in their ERP or CRM. This allows manufacturers a customized solution from any interface that is easy to maintain for customers and internal teams.

  • MB 2000 - BROCHAGE POUR LES PROFILES ALUMINIUM, A new solution for difficult preps on alu profiles

    By: MECAN’OUTIL
    Stand D 35

    Broaching is a well known technology for high precision machining of steel or cast iron parts. Machine cost is reasonable. A broach is a multi teeth tool, similar to a very long file. Its section is designed according to the shape to be machined. Its movement is linear, and the required shape is realized by removing very small shavings. Tooth pitch is small, for a noiseless machining. The MB 2000 is fast and cost effective.

    MECAN'OUTIL has been supplying aluminium joinery with punch tools for nearly more than 30 years. Punching is a highly efficient and cost effective technology, used whenever technically possible. With the last thermal insulation requirements, recent profiles are using more sophisticated thermal break solutions, and punching is getting more and more difficult. It is often not possible to locate a strong enough die, in front of the punch. And thickness that need to be cut are sometimes just too big. Broaching key points: > Shape of cut: no constraints, possibility of sharp angles. If a deep cut is required, prep can be done in 2 or 3 steps > Material to be cut: any shape of extruded aluminium combined with any shape of polyamide thermal break. Benefits: each step requires a few seconds, change of die is a matter of minutes.

    Broaching has not so far been used in aluminium joinery. It has some major benefits vs competitive technologies used when punch tools can not be used for technical reasons: 1/ End profile milling is fast, but its noise level is not accepted by H&S rules 2/ Copy routers are cheap but very slow, and labour costly 3/ CNC machines require a large investment, are slow, and are often not precise enough for end bar preps.
