    Time and time again we encounter the prejudice that our products cannot be sustainable. Plastic has made such a strong impression on everyone’s world and has attracted so much negative attention, especially in recent years, that it is difficult to break away from this misconception.
    We produce components that remain as part of an overall construction for decades. Even if the building is renovated or modified, this does not automatically mean that it has to be disposed of or destroyed.
    Plastics can be recycled and reused by us in many ways. Polycarbonate in particular is a very high-quality raw material that, even after recycling, can be used again for other applications or as a new raw material mixture for completely different purposes. The best examples of the sustainable reuse of polycarbonate elements that have already been used are our Savenergy panel and our Savenergy corrugated sheets.

    We support our customers
    with project planning and aftercare assistance.

    We have made it our task to support architects and builders with creativity, competence and innovation in their daily work in the best possible way.
    Thanks to original architecture, every building, whether new or old, can be designed to be visually exciting and at the same time highly energy-efficient.

    Our goal is to bring a breath of fresh air into a market that tends to be saturated with new ideas and innovativations.
    With us you have a reliable, competent and creative partner at your side.

    We would be happy to advise you!

    Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic polymer. This means that it is one of the few plastics that can withstand high temperatures. It is a strong, hard and transparent material that is 250x stronger than conventional glass. In addition, polycarbonate weighs considerably less than glass. Despite its very robust product properties, polycarbonate is very easy to process and can be used in a wide range of applications. Please visit our products section for more information.
