Albintra launches a new website!

Goodnews, our new website is ready!  To answer even better to the expectations of our customers and other visitors, we have renewed totally our online business card.  Have a look and discover all the new items ...  And don't forget to check out the virtual tour of our showroom in which you will be able to see all the products we expose.

FAKRO PRO program

At the beginning of February, Albintra launched their brand new FAKRO PRO program for roofers and dealers through 3 big events.  These were held in the new showroom and attended by nearly 140 people, all professionals interested in FAKRO and its products. 

With the following personal data protection policy we provide information on the type of personal data collected, for what purposes and how we use it, who we are and what your rights are. The aim of this letter is to provide information referred to in Art.

We can look back on a successful Batibouw, during which there was, again!, a lot of interest in FAKRO's (flat) roof windows and loft ladders.  Visitors were particularly impressed by the new preSelect² top hung and pivot roof window, which offers an even more comfortable usage and will be available in 134x160 cm - even in triple glazing!

Gór-Stal, the well-known Polish producer of sandwich panels and insulation boards in polyisocyanurate (PIR), will launch termPIR MAX at Batibouw.  This new type of boards can be bought in thicknesses up to 250 mm and has an exceptional Lambda value of 0,019 W/mK (termPIR MAX19) or 0,018 W/mK (termPIR MAX18), probably the best value in the current market. Gór-Stal’s PIR insulation boards are being distributed in Belgium and the Grand duchy of Luxemburg by Albintra NV, distributor of building materials through merchants in building materials, since January 2018.

We will be closed from 22.12.17 until 03.01.18.  Our annual inventory will take place on the 4th and the 5th of January. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We will participate at a couple of fairs during the last quarter of the year:

Heradesign's new pricelist (for Belux) is available.  Contact us if you have more questions!

We will be closed from the 23rd of December 2016 until the 4th of January 2017 and will have our annual inventory on the 5th and 6th of January 2017.  As from the 9th of January 2017, it will be possible to collect goods and normal deliveries will take place as from the 10th of January 2017. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 

During Spring 2016, our Skylights department produced and installed skylights and smoke and heat ventilation systems in Gedimat De Groote / T' Houtboerke's new warehouses in Gent.A good energetic performance is increasingly important in industrial construction as well.  That's why the skylights and heat ventilation systems installed in the lower warehouses by Albintra are EPB-certified.

FAKRO recently won a Red Dot Design 2016 for the DEF U6 flat roof window. The Red Dot Design Award is an international product design and communication design prize awarded by Design Zentrum in Essen, Germany since1955. It is considered by many experts to be one of the most valuable trophies in the field of industrial design.

Since April 1st 2016, Kilometer Charge applies for HGV of over 3.5 tons on designated Belgian roads.  All these trucks need to be equipped with an On Board Unit that is constantly switched on when they drive on public roads in our country.  This OBU will only charge the kilometers driven on paying toll roads.  All information needed is to be found here "About Viapass", as well as the categories of vehicles included that are exempted from the Kilometer Charge or fall outside its scope.  The prices and t

FAKRO is strong in every field - roof windows, flat roof windows and loft ladders - and we underlined that during the latest edition of Batibouw!  During the fair, we organised trial bike shows on our booth.  The trial bikers jumped on FAKRO's new DXW walkable flat roof window, a model on which you can walk, jump and even cycle!  Visit our stand here.

The pictures of the first Albintra-FAKRO Classic are available online: www.bartgosselingallery.com !  We will donate a part of these profits as well to our charity, the 'Revalidatiecentrum Pulderbos', so we hope you will all buy them :-) Thanks again to all those who were present ...

We're organising the very first edition of the Albintra-FAKRO Classic on the 6th of September 2015: a cycling event with two stages, one of 60 km and one of 100 km.  Start between 7.30 and 10 am from our offices in Broechem (Bistweg 80).
