Leading German high-performance door blank manufacturer, Moralt AG, is gearing up to exhibit at two major shows next month.
With more than 800 exhibitors and 100,000 visitors expected, Fensterbau Frontale, which takes place in Nuremburg between 18-21 March, is the world’s biggest exhibition for doors, windows and facades.
During the same week, the Bavarian-based business will also exhibit at the Dubai Woodshow. Taking place at Dubai World Trade Centre, between 16 and 18 March, it is the only dedicated trade show in the Middle East for the wood and woodworking machinery industries.
Products on show will include Moralt’s range of FERRO external doors, featuring FERRO FireSafe which have recently achieved IFC Fields of Application to FD30 and FD60. The FERRO range also comprises a Passivhaus door solution for low energy and Passivhaus buildings. In addition, the latest developments relating to the certification of Moralt’s internal door blank range – LAMINESSE FireSmoke and FireSound – will be on display.
“This is a really exciting period for our business,” said managing director of Moralt AG, Klaus Feile. “Worldwide demand for high-performance technical door blanks is growing all the time and both Europe and the UAE are extremely important and fast developing markets for us. These exhibitions offer the perfect platform to showcase our extensive portfolio to architects, joiners, manufacturers and specifiers and build new, strategic relationships with key decision makers from a wide range of sectors and markets on a global scale.”
This growth in demand is evidenced in two of Dubai’s newest and most prestigious projects – the EXPO CoEx Centre and the Kempinski Hotel, which recently specified a combined total of more than 550 Moralt FireSound internal acoustic door blanks.
Reflecting this growing global trend for high-specification technical door blanks, Moralt has just appointed Steven Dennard as international sales manager who will be responsible for developing sales in both the UK and UAE, as well as China.
Last year Moralt, which moved into a in new 1m Euro factory in Hausham in 2016, spent 500,000 euros optimising production, by streamlining manufacturing processes and logistics, and further investment and development is planned for later this year. It has also recently achieved carbon neutral status.
Moralt’s products are available in the UK through James Latham and Falcon Panel Products.
Moralt can be found in Hall 8, stand number 403, at Fensterbau Frontale and in Hall 2, stand number D–04 at the Dubai Wood Show.
