The construction industry is becoming increasingly focused on reducing environmental impact up and down its supply chain. In the fields of architecture and interior design, it’s therefore become essential to make informed choices and work with partners that are committed to sustainability to be able to face new challenges and contribute to a low environmental impact building model.

Technology meets design for maximum efficiency

Deceuninck, a multinational established in Belgium in 1937, stands out for its substantial and ongoing R&D investments. This has meant that today it offers a wide range of cutting-edge door and window products distinguished by their high energy saving performance. The design of its window systems centers on the choice of the best materials, as well as innovative, functional designs that make it possible to minimize the use of raw materials and significantly reduce waste. The company also focuses on improving the energy performance of buildings, which hinges on various factors including the fixtures installed. The products made using ThermoFibra, a new material that reinforces doors along their entire length with continuous fiberglass bundles, have been designed to combine aesthetics and efficiency, while significantly improving thermal performance. This innovative material also makes it possible to eliminate steel reinforcement from PVC profiles, which therefore become much thinner and lighter. Extremely strong, high performance, and with minimalist, contemporary looks, Deceuninck’s window systems tick all the boxes in terms of technical requirements and attention to design. And they’re available in a range of colors and finishes to adapt to any situation.

A circular economy model

Deceuninck also gives old doors and windows a second lease on life. In 2012, it opened its PVC recycling center in the Belgian city of Diksmuide, where PVC profiles from old doors and windows are processed to create a recycled material with the same characteristics as the original. PVC can, in fact, be recycled up to ten times without losing its original properties, making it a highly sustainable material that can help significantly reduce the environmental impact of the building industry.
