Visually and tactilely attractive design window surfaces from Salamander as a tangible part of the living experience
With realMaterial, Salamander offers authentic premium materials that create tangible design surfaces on the outside and inside for window customers, making them a stylish part of the living style. The company offers real premium surface materials such as aluminium in a brushed stainless steel look, copper, real wood veneers and ecologically certified quality leather fibre materials, each of which is applied to the window profiles using a lamination process.
- With realMaterial, Salamander develops design surfaces from real materials.
- The real materials are applied to the window profile in a laminating process
- Sustainable material cycle ensured: Window can be returned to the material cycle in the standard process.
Türkheim, 22/04/2021. For Salamander Window & Door Systems, the window is not a purely technical product, but a connecting element between façade and interior design. The window is the design-determining element matching the building age class of the façade as well as the style of the interior and must fulfil ecological, technical and safety-relevant criteria. All of this cannot be covered by a standard, but requires intelligent modular and compatible solutions that are configured according to the living situation, peculiarities of the building, architecture and individual preferences. "With our "myWindow" strategy and the specially developed C3 consulting concept, we find the right window for every architectural and living style. For example, with our multicompatible greenEvolution modular system, we produce a wide range of window variants with a holistic marketing concept. The new visually and tactilely attractive realMaterial surfaces not only represent innovative design options, but also impress with their high-performance insulation values and recyclability," says Co-CEO Götz Schmiedeknecht.
Surfaces that can be experienced with realMaterial
The colours and materiality of windows contribute significantly to the appearance of the entire property. The character of a building can be emphasised through the authenticity of the surface materiality or a contrasting, exciting atmosphere can be created through targeted breaks in style. Salamander offers a variety of colours, materials and tangible design surfaces. The customer's wishes are decisive for the design of the house. With realMaterial and the Salamander greenEvolution modular system, real, tangible materials are available. These are applied to the profile using the laminating process.
Instead of the usual decorative surfaces, Salamander Window & Door Systems now offers surfaces made of real wood veneer, aluminium with a brushed stainless steel look and copper. The latter is untreated so that the surface darkens over time, creating the desired patina.
A whole range of new options are available for the design of the inside. Among them are embossed ecologically certified quality leather fibre fabrics obtained from genuine leather production cuttings. This is where the subsidiary Salamander SPS GmbH & Co. KG comes into play. The company is the world market and quality leader in the production of premium leather fibre fabrics. For the market launch, Salamander offers the combination of a realMaterial surface on the outside or inside in combination with the Salamander foil decors. This will be followed in a further step by the combination of realMaterial surfaces both outside and inside. "The desired window of many end customers is the combination of wood/aluminium. What was previously not possible with a classic uPVC window can be implemented with our realMaterial surfaces: a modern, laminated aluminium decor on the outside and a natural real wood veneer on the inside - so you have the same impression," Co-CEO Till Schmiedeknecht makes clear.
Recyclability is guaranteed for all surfaces. The different materials can be easily separated from each other and returned to the material cycle. This is particularly important for Salamander because the company takes a holistic approach and the topic of sustainability is an important part of the corporate strategy.
