In addition to showcasing several of the company's recent innovations, Deceuninck's booth was designed to look and feel like an art gallery and it featured several celebrated works of art that focus on windows. Deceuninck's booth was selected out of 393 booths on the conference's exhibition floor.
"Our booth was designed to showcase the artistry of windows and to encourage people to look beyond the form and function of windows to see how their design can be imaginative and inspiring," said Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. "At Deceuninck, we are honored that the booth received 'Best in Show' during this year's GlassBuild conference. The conference was the ideal platform to launch several of our new technologies and further demonstrate our commitment to design, innovation and sustainability."
Deceuninck North America's booth blended classic works of art featuring windows — including "Woman Seated by a Window" by Pablo Picasso and "View from the Window, Tangier" by Henri Matisse — with displays of the company's products. During the show, the company exhibited several new products and technologies, including Innergy™ Rigid Thermal Reinforcements. Developed as a better-performing alternative to aluminum reinforcements for PVC windows and door profiles, Innergy is the result of collaboration with polyurethane resin manufacturer Bayer MaterialScience LLC.
The company also launched the Revolution Tilt & Turn™ window. This new product features a seven-chamber thermal structure, Deceuninck's Innergy™ Rigid Thermal Reinforcements, and multifunctional operability in a window that has the capability of achieving an R-value of 7+. Revolution is also designed for a C-50/DP-80 rating.
In addition, Deceuninck announced the details of a new partnership with J.P. Industrial (JPI), a GreenCircle Certified company, to introduce a comprehensive recycling program for Deceuninck's customers. JPI is the largest recycler of PVC materials nationwide. As a result of the partnership, JPI will collect scraps and end cuts from fabricators that work with Deceuninck and return those recycled pieces to Deceuninck so the company can reintroduce the materials into the manufacturing process.
GlassBuild America is the gathering place for the glass, window and door industries in North America. Organized by the National Glass Association, GlassBuild America showcases glass processing equipment, window and door manufacturing equipment, and the latest technologies for all types of glass and fenestration products in North America.
