VEKA Launches Commercial Window Program

Post Time:Apr 10,2009Classify:Company NewsView:383

PVC profile extruder VEKA Inc. in Fombell, Pa., has announced the launch of its commercial door and window program. The Germany-based extruder has been working with these products for close to a year in an effort to test the potential of these European style windows and doors for the commercial market.

"Although VEKA vinyl windows have been installed in commercial applications all over the world for many years, the American market has been slow to change," says Kevin Seiling, general manager of the commercial window division. "However, with recent and upcoming energy code changes and government programs like LEED, there is a greater demand for more energy efficient products like PVC windows which are unparalleled in the residential window and door industry as far as thermal performance is concerned."

VEKA is introducing steel reinforced PVC products that will be manufactured in the Pennsylvania facility, as well as other partners in the United States, Mexico and Canada. The product line will carry commercial(C), heavy commercial (HC) and architectural grade (AW) ratings for a variety of product types.

VEKA says its is also pursuing impact rating for these products and will be focusing its sales efforts on storefronts, schools and institutional projects, but says the products will suit most applications.

"The most recent bill signed by congress, The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), tremendously helps this segment of our business as we have the perfect product that meets the energy codes that will be an important part of this act," states Seiling. "We plan on attacking this market vigorously and will prove the viability of PVC in the commercial market place."
