New trends from Fensterbau Germany

Posted 4/10/2018

A recent visit to the world’s largest window fair ‘Fensterbau 2018’ in Germany revealed the latest trends in windows and doors. The main focus was on integrated drainage for level threshold doors, airtight window installation, sophisticated entrance door designs, burglary resistance and shading options, as well as smart home and automation solutions.

 

Whether it be hinged doors or sliding doors, the trend towards level thresholds has been noticed here in Australia over the last few years. However there was also a high chance of water penetration issues during heavy downpours. A number of companies have now invested time and energy into developing drainage systems which means that this issue is now a thing of the past.

Titan AF changeover

Posted 3/15/2018

From 23rd April 2018, Siegware will start phasing out the old FAVORIT tilt and turn system to make room for the new TITAN AF system.

Although TITAN AF has been available for some time, the transition process from old to new hardware takes a number of years. Over the past year we have seen SIEGENIA begin to significantly reduce the FAVORIT range. Configurations such as arched and French windows are no longer available within FAVORIT, as well as Elook coastal finishes, and additional parts such as energy saving stays and adjustable break stays. Not to panic, these extended products plus new additions still exist within TITAN AF.

150 years of innovation

Posted 2/28/2018

KFV has long been a success story with innovative locking mechanisms – and now KFV turns 150 years!

Today KFV is an important part of the hardware group Siegenia but its roots date back to 1868 as the founder Karl Fliether opened a forge in Velbert, Germany. He was only 16 years old at the time. With good management and creative ideas he changed his company from a handicraft business to a manufacturing business.

Through four generations of the family, the name became well known for quality products. In the beginning, these were simple door and cabinet locks but changed over time to complex
