Our high quality standards
Our focus on quality is reflected in our processes, systems, products, innovations and services. To achieve this, we are constantly creating a working environment that encourages our employees and suppliers to prevent defects and pursue excellent performance.
An ecologically sound production process and a sustainably designed workplace form a crucial part of the aluplast eco guidelines, which are reflected in our environment-friendly products.
For our Eco-Management system, we are certified according to ISO 50001. We have been able to significantly cut our energy consumption by introducing a new, highly-efficient compressed-air screw compressor, streamlining the energy consumption of production lines and applying a range of other measures. This means that our production facilities now have the lowest energy consumption figures in Europe.
Looking after our planet is the only option! And we are proud that our energy-saving windows help contribute to this. Anyone trying to reduce energy consumption in buildings has to start with the windows. Thanks to our innovative technology, you can count on our window systems with some of the best insulation figures around – all the way up to passive-house standard.
We'll start with the good news: PVC can be recycled up to seven times without any compromises in terms of material quality. We began thinking about recycling a long, long time ago. We not only helped to drive towards the creation of Rewindo – an association dedicated to window recycling where uPVC window fabricators make a voluntary commitment to sustainable business – we have also invested heavily in recycling facilities for our Karlsruhe site. When we start developing our innovative products, we factor in recycling right from the outset. Take our energeto® windows, for instance: all of their materials can be separated with ease and then recycled.
The raw materials used for our window profiles are based on a calcium-zinc chemical stabiliser that is strictly lead-free. With this eco-friendly stabiliser and our involvement in “VINYL 2010” (which implies the use of recycled materials in our plastic profiles. among other things), aluplast offers window systems that can be fabricated and recycled in an ecologically sound way.
As the uPVC window sector rapidly expands in Australia, we are committed to ensuring and growing the opportunities to recycle our products in responsible ways. Starting in 2022 we are working with our Australian fabricators and companies in our industry to reduce waste throughout the fabrication process and ensure waste uPVC, such as material offcuts in the fabrication process are gathered and recycled for use in new products where ever possible. After many decades of use, end of life windows can be recycled. Please get in touch with your local expert to discuss the ways in which aluplast windows and doors can be recycled or disposed of in the safest and environmentally friendly way possible.
aluplast assumes responsibility for people and the environment and, together with its customers and partners, contributes actively to the protection of our natural environment.
Our products come with EPDs, the European Environmental Product Declaration in accordance with ISO 14025 and EN 15804, which carefully document the eco footprint of our plastic windows over an average product lifecycle of 50 years.
