REHAU Window Solutions presented with innovation award for Smart Guard at Equipbaie-Metalexpo 2021

The French trade press has awarded Smart Guard the prestigious "Coup de Cœur".


Erlangen, 5 October 2021 – The French trade press has honoured the REHAU Smart Guard with an innovation award. Experts bestowed the ‘Coups de Cœur de la Presse Professionnelle’ on the preventative break-in protection system. REHAU Smart Guard won over the jury in the category ‘Wellbeing, comfort and safety of private individuals’.

REHAU Window Solutions took part in the prize competition as part of the Equipbaie-Metalexpo, France’s leading trade fair for wood and metal processing. Both the show and the awards took place from 21 to 24 September in Paris.

‘The Coups de Cœur is a fantastic award and an honour for REHAU Window Solutions. The award shows that the REHAU Smart Guard is an important milestone in supporting our partners,’ says Bruno Bednarczyk, Head of Market Area West Europe at REHAU. ‘Alongside our unique sustainability concept inspired by a circular economy, it is above all smart solutions like the Smart Guard that give our partners decisive arguments for differentiation and success on the market,’ Bednarczyk continues.

In 2021, there were 35 contenders for the ‘Coups de Cœur de la Presse Professionnelle’, where the best solutions from the trade fair are nominated by the jury. Experts from ‘Stores & Fermetures’ magazine selected a total of four winners. Each year, a different magazine chooses the winners, and in 2021, ‘Stores & Fermetures’ was in charge of the process.

In addition to this, the REHAU Smart Guard also fits superbly with the motto of this year’s Equipbaie-Metalexpo: ‘Driving the positive digital revolution’. In 2021, REHAU Window Solutions welcomed its partners at its 110 m² booth with the motto ‘Create difference. Grow business.’ The booth was divided into four areas, reflecting the four pillars of REHAU: growth in core business, new smart business areas, greater efficiency through digital services, and sustainable answers to the questions of today and tomorrow.

Among the highlights of the REHAU Window Solutions appearance at the Equipbaie-Metalexpo was an impressive wall display on ‘Sustainable development’. This illustrated the concept of the unparalleled circular economy that allows REHAU Window Solutions to offer certified recycling from one source.

In 2021, the organisers added an area devoted entirely to digitalisation, in keeping with the theme of the show. Within this framework, REHAU Window Solutions presented a whole range of digital services for its partners, including the lead management platform REHAU Connect.
