Birth of the veranda in France

Verandas made its debut in France with the arrival of 2 major materials in the field.Aluminium verandas replace steel ones for their durability over time. Roofs made of Plexiglas and polycarbonate take the place of glass roofs for greater lightness and better resistance. At the same time, the company begins the manufacture and sale of equipment dedicated to the construction of veranda.

Innovation with the first insulating
composite panels for verandas

In order to improve thermal insulation in its veranda, the company develops the first self-supporting and insulating composite panel for verandas.It is the arrival of the THERMOTOP®, insulating panel: a product that will revolutionise the use of the veranda and that is still today a symbol of innovation in the sector. This novelty places the company as a pioneer and the inventor of the insulated veranda roof panel. To date, 70% of veranda roofs in France are made of insulating composite panels.

Appearance of the
inhabitable veranda

It is with the creation of the IMPACT CONTROL system that sound insulation appears on the composite panels. Since then over 600,000 M² were installed. The exclusive IMPACT CONTROL process reduces rain noise on veranda roofs. The company thus influences the market by transforming verandas into a comfortable living space.
