At a glance: the highlights of World of Windows 2022

REHAU's new ARTEVO system is a development of GENEO. This designer window system with clear and angular contours  has been completely redesigned. The result is extremely slim upstands on the outside with small radii and low angular inclination. The force zones integrated into the design provide increased performance and stability. This makes it easy to create larger sashes, even without reinforcements. The use of the patent-pending innovative LowE foil provides a uniquely sustainable solution for passive house certified elements. ARTEVO is deeply integrated into the REHAU Window Solutions system landscape and, with its basic construction width of 80 mm, forms a common platform with the successful and proven SYNEGO system. ARTEVO makes window production significantly easier and increases the range of applications at the same time. Rationalised production provides the basis for window professionals to produce particularly efficiently and cost-effectively.

REHAU SLINOVA and SLINOVA X are new innovative sliding solutions. They are mainly targeted at the markets in Western and Southern Europe. The launch will take place there in June and will present a new standard 80 mm platform based on the same frame profiles. This principle offers numerous advantages. For example, it significantly simplifies logistics and manufacturing by making work steps set up on the production line transferable to a variety of applications. The sash profiles make the difference: for Slinova X, the RAU-FIPRO X material is used selectively. The special material properties enable us to achieve the slimmest centre section ever in a PVC-based system. The result is a comprehensive and impressive solution in terms of efficient production and assembly, energy efficiency and sustainability.

Smart Shading
Smart Shading technology turns window panes into intelligent components. It is one of the fastest and, at the same time, most economical systems compared to existing shading solutions. When the sun shines through the window, the SPD technology gradually makes the pane dimmer, offering effective protection and preventing both homes and offices from getting too warm. Users can control the Smart Shading with a wall-mounted or wireless switch, via the REHAU app, or automatically using additional sensors and smart home devices. The highly customisable use also allows it to be used in listed buildings where roller shutters are not an option.

Smart Privacy
This innovative and visually attractive window solution for protecting privacy will celebrate its market launch in 2022. The intelligent pane of the REHAU smart glass window can actively change its state and switch from transparent to opaque within a few milliseconds. While the Smart Privacy One version changes the state of the entire window surface, Smart Privacy Select also enables individual segments to be switched. This innovative and unique solution provides privacy at the touch of a button and is an excellent option, especially for front doors with side panels. Smart Privacy gives the market a practical and attractive answer to the global megatrends of urbanisation and customisation.

Smart Guard
REHAU Smart Guard Ontop is universally applicable and can be installed quickly and easily on almost all REHAU window systems – also as a retrofit solution. Smart Guard Inline is the new integrated solution that meets the highest standards in terms of appearance and aesthetics. The new REHAU Gateway and the REHAU app create a smart home hub for Smart Guard. The result is a holistic system that is future-proof as well as easy to operate and integrate. This will enable window companies to generate added value and will differentiate them from the competition. Preventative protection against break-ins is consistently linked to sustainable business models and supports the global megatrends of security and digitalisation.

REHAU Connect
REHAU Connect identifies and provides qualified new customer contacts from the local region. The platform provides specific contact data based on individual requirement criteria. Distributors always have the freedom to decide to what extent they approach the customer. REHAU Window Solutions uses an advanced 3D configurator to actively support the sales process and visualise the planned windows in real time. REHAU Connect is the answer to the megatrends of digitalisation and customisation.

REHAU Window.ID increases efficiency for the lifetime of the window. The digital window ID is the guarantee of optimised processes, from production to recycling – with long-term customer loyalty included. It makes processes comprehensive, innovative and forward-looking. It creates a lifelong connection for window professionals to their products. The Window.ID ensures the complete documentation and localisation of future materials. REHAU Windows Solutions thus enables sustainable deconstruction within the completely closed circular economy. This ensures efficiency along the entire value chain and fully satisfied customers. This innovative industry solution can be implemented quickly in all window systems, generates simple added value and is absolutely future-proof.

REHAU window construction software (REF)
REHAU Window Solutions has further developed the REHAU window construction software, REF for short. New features include customer management, a list generator and editor, employee management and the planning of assembly projects. These form the basis for REF to generate even greater added value in production. The modular design of the solution enables the simple and profitable integration of other useful options, such as Window.ID or REHAU Connect, into the system.

EcoPuls is our sign of sustainability in practice. EcoPuls is a mindset and a commitment for REHAU Window Solutions. To sustainability. To responsibility. To consistency. REHAU Window Solutions has proved this millions of times over many years, in numerous products. The EcoPuls label is proof of the use of a pioneering circular economy. Recycled materials ensure the maximum possible sustainability in serial production. Everything from a single source and in all REHAU systems: GENEO, RAU-FIPRO X, GENEO, INOVENT, SYNEGO Brilliant-Design, Euro-Design EcoPuls. Of course, we also integrate SLINOVA and SLINOVA X into this cycle. And ARTEVO as well. Sustainability – a global megatrend.
