From louver windows in Apple Park in America’s Silicon Valley to the glass dome of Peek & Cloppenburg in Cologne – frames, moldings, gaskets, and plastic profiles are used in a wide variety of windows and façade structures. REIFF Technische Produkte, a specialist in profile technology, provides customer – specific solutions for tailored seals.
Energy efficiency is of the utmost importance in window and façade constructions. The frame and profile designs must be well thought out to the last detail and meet the highest technical requirements to achieve optimum insulation and thermal conductivity values for windows and facades. At its Erbach location in Germany, the REIFF company began developing individual gaskets, frames, and moldings for window and façade systems in 1995 – working hand in hand with its customers. Regarding material selection, REIFF provides expert consultation before proceeding with tool design and layout. From the very beginning, REIFF technicians are included in the collaborative process with customers—the result is the development of the most precisely fitting and energy – efficient products.
Procedural versatility for individual solutions
Production at the manufacturing plant in Erbach focuses on manufacturing vulcanized frames and molded parts using the injection molding process and the welding of TPE profiles. In
addition, REIFF offers other services such as surface treatment and coating, cutting to length, punching, and bonding of profiles, as well as 3D prototyping. EPDM is the primary material used in REIFF profile technology. It is known for its high weather resistance, long-term elasticity, and durability, making it ideal for window and façade construction. Other materials used in addition to EPDM include silicone, CR, NBR, and TPE. “Thanks to our comprehensive processing service, we can provide individual and customized solutions to suit a wide range of applications,” Hans-Peter Kilgus, Key Account Manager & Application Technician at REIFF, explains.
Delivering reliability in every aspect
In development, material selection, and production, REIFF values achieving and maintaining maximum levels of quality. Productions at the in-house machine park in Erbach can be prioritized for customers requesting larger quantities, in addition to reserving machine capacities. If required, REIFF delivers several times a week. Customer-specific packaging such as cardboard boxes and foil bags with customer logos and customer-specific label printing can be realized, and entire assemblies can be combined and shipped. ” We support our customers throughout the entire value chain, from the development to the design, production, packaging and delivery of the goods – that is our benchmark,” states Jonas Kipphan, Head of Industry Sales and Key Account Management at REIFF.
