Deceuninck North America’s INNERGY(TM) Rigid Thermal Reinforcements Named Most Innovative Window Component of the Year by Window & Door Magazine
MONROE, Ohio, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Deceuninck North America, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality systems for windows, doors, and outdoor living, is pleased to announce that the company’s INNERGY(TM) Rigid Thermal Reinforcements were recognized by Window & Door Magazine with a 2012 Crystal Achievement Award for Most Innovative Window Component of the Year.
“At Deceuninck, we pride ourselves on innovation, which is one of the driving principles of the company, and we are honored by this recognition,” said Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. “When we launched INNERGY, we were confident that the product would become the new industry standard for thermal performance. This award serves as further validation of our efforts.”
Developed as a better-performing alternative to aluminum reinforcements for PVC windows and door profiles, INNERGY is considered to be the next generation of thermal reinforcements. It offers the same strength and durability of aluminum, but with unprecedented levels of thermal performance. It is virtually impermeable to cold or heat and is extremely resistant to condensation, which prevents staining that can occur with metal reinforcements. Moreover, it is structural and flexible at the same time. Under impact, it retains its form and shape compared to metal reinforcements. INNERGY easily slides into frames during the fabrication process without the need for retooling. In addition, INNERGY can receive a waiver from additional testing because of its proven performance.
INNERGY is the result of a collaboration with polyurethane resin manufacturer Bayer MaterialScience LLC as part of an exclusive agreement. The collaboration brought together Bayer’s expertise in custom polyurethane resin system development and Deceuninck’s long experience in design and manufacturing.
INNERGY was introduced to the marketplace in September of 2011.
Selected by a panel of judges representing all segments of the industry, Window & Door’s Crystal Achievement Awards recognize significant innovations and achievements in window and door technology, manufacturing, and marketing each year.
INNERGY will be featured in the magazine’s September issue.
