VERSATILITY WITH HIGH DEMANDS ON QUALITY, PRECISION AND RELIABILITY
We manufacture steel reinforcements for nearly all leading PVCu window systems with the highest quality standards and, of course, in accordance with system requirements. With our thermally broken sections we are able to provide a cost-effective solution to help all window manufacturers to meet the increasing demands for energy efficiency according to the latest energy saving regulations (EnEV).
All of our products are characterised by quality and precision: Even when it comes to raw materials, we pay attention to consistent high quality through close cooperation with leading steel mills and steel service centres. We produce our reinforcement sections on modern machines with exact radii and clean geometries, so they can perfectly fit into the related PVCu profiles. Modern saws and shearing tools allow a clean profile cut, without burrs.
We offer profiles in galvanised steel, pickled steel, stainless steel (1.4301, 1.4404, etc.), aluminium and other non-ferrous metals.
Numerous processing operations such as punching, mitre cutting, deburring etc. are part of our portfolio.
Numerous profiles such as thermally broken profiles, welded profiles, U-profiles, C-profiles, G-profiles, slotted tubes, etc.
REINFORCEMENT SECTIONS FOR PVCU WINDOWS
In many European countries and even worldwide, the popularity of PVCu windows and doors is constantly increasing. Simple maintenance, low-cost production, a variety of colours and shapes and a long service life are advantages of PVCu window systems.
In our product range, you will find steel reinforcements for all common PVCu window systems. This is why we supply our reinforcement sections to customers from over 50 countries.
Hundreds of different reinforcement sections are always on stock and can be supplied at short notice.
We are also happy to produce reinforcement profiles for new PVCu window systems or to create alternative reinforcements according to your requirements. Our design department is on hand to assist you at any time. As a service, we also offer drawings with structural aspects for our reinforcement sections.
WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU
Gebhardt-Stahl offers you more than just reinforcement profiles. Even if the production and optimisation of the reinforcement profiles are of course always in focus, there are also a number of other organisational measures or services that distinguish us as a supplier.
Therefore, we would like to give you a brief overview of the areas in which we strive to become even better for you every day:
- Innovation and quality
- Advice and support
- Calculation of the profiles
- Special variants and profiles as desired
- Well thought out logistics
- Fixed lengths
- Individual bundle sizes and packaging
REINFORCEMENT SECTIONS FOR PVCU DOORS
Especially PVCu doors require steel reinforcements for structural reasons. In order to allow the large and heavy elements to withstand daily stresses and to offer sufficient protection against burglary, particularly large steel reinforcements with higher material thicknesses are used. Those reinforcements often are made of steel in 2.5mm or 3mm. Most common are welded sections, which need to have recesses in order to accommodate the closing mechanisms.
From a portfolio of over 150 shapes, Gebhardt-Stahl is able to offer you the right reinforcement sections.
THERMALLY BROKEN SECTIONS
The new Builidings Energy Act (GEG), the increased environmental awareness and rising energy costs lead to the fact that planners, operators and end-users are more and more demanding windows with better U values. Particular attention is paid to this aspect, especially with the construction of low-energy or passive houses.
Multi-chamber profiles with up to 7 chambers and multi-glazing (up to triple glazing) with an argon or krypton filling make it possible to achieve better U values. However, sometimes this is insufficient and too expensive.
Our protected thermally broken sections now offer the possibility to reduce the U values of windows further and to achieve this without structural compromises, even in the case of large elements.
