Certified windows: safety, reliability and comfort
Windows are increasingly technical products. Just a few years ago, they were still assembled on the construction site, but over the past decade they have become a sophisticated construction system integrating a high level of technology and ever greater efficiency.
Recycling of PVC windows
Using recycled PVC in windows is a growing trend in which several key market stakeholders have become involved by having their plants certified, including Deceuninck, Paprec, Rehau, Suez and VEKA for one factory in France and one in Germany. The CSTB issues QB34 and NF126 certifications, which showcase PVC reprocessing and reassure the sector about the constancy of the technical characteristics and the associated performance levels. These certifications represent real progress in the recognition of how PVC windows perform in relation to the circular economy.
