Auckland, June 2011 – Technoform Bautec are delighted to be recognised as one of three finalists in the “product of the show” category at the forthcoming BUILDNZ show to be held at the Auckland ASB Show Grounds June 26 -28.

Technoform Bautec are a German headquartered company who are world leaders in thermal break technology used in the Fenestration (window and door) industry. In New Zealand the window and door frame of choice is aluminium with 9 out of 10 frames built in this versatile recyclable, corrosion resistant material with the one downside being it’s highly conductive allowing energy to escape or enter a building via the window frame. Technoform’s highly engineered polyamide (plastic) strip is used as an insulator in the window frame stopping heat escaping a building in winter or conversely entering in summer. Additionally the company supplies a patented spacer used in the double glazing industry to separate and insulate the two panes of glass.
Up to 40% of energy loss in a building is via the windows and doors and Technoform’s thermal strips help eliminate this problem while also assisting in the minimisation of condensation another major frustration of New Zealand homeowners. With glass making up around a third of a buildings “shell” insulating this large area is very important.
Technoform’s Les Probert said “now homeowners can enjoy all the many lifestyle advantages of big glazed areas without being penalised in terms of energy efficiency ”
The Buildnz judges commented on Technoform’s product saying” “these insulating glass spacers and thermal insulating strips reduced heat loss and condensation which was important to New Zealand buildings, resulting in energy savings and warmer buildings as well as reduced noise pollution”.
Technoform now supply and support leading window manufacturers throughout Australasia and on a global basis generate estimated annual energy savings of over 1.2Bn Euro via the 120,000,000+ windows now incorporating their system.
