REHAU Lyteus


Adaptable, connected, digital – becoming a world-class innovator

International markets are in constant flux, and global players face an increasingly sophisticated competitive environment. Our clients’ requirements are changing, too. They want more than quality: service and additional functions are becoming just as important. As part of our strategic initiative REHAU 2020, we are implementing the changes required to meet these requirements, now and in the future. We focus on new fields of activity, new materials, new technologies and new business models as well as agile approaches and methods to break down established structures. We will also leverage strategic alliances, such as developmental partnerships, to succeed in our markets.

Digitalisation and convenience

Smarter Einbruchschutz Smart Guard

Smart protection against burglary for windows and doors

Let the REHAU Smart Guard be your guard dog. First, the acoustic warning and visual light signals attract attention when a person approaches the window. If someone tries to open the window forcibly, this causes the roller shutters to close, for example, or an alarm siren is released - depending on how the REHAU Smart Guard has been set up.

Smart Sense

REHAU makes furniture a user interface

The touch-sensitive polymer profile makes furniture a user interface: the table height can be adjusted, the light regulated and the slatted bed frame controlled.
