1993

Creation and innovation in verandas

Since its founding in 1993

AKRAPLAST® France’s tireless innovation efforts have positioned it as a major player with aluminum carpentry, veranda, and pergola professionals. The company develops the first veranda systems made of THERMOTOP® insulating panels to improve homeowners thermal comfort. The product will revolutionize the way people use their verandas. Today, 70% of veranda roofing is made of insulating panels, giving AKRAPLAST® its rightful place as a pioneer in insulated verandas.

2000

The veranda emerges as a living space

Acoustic coatings appear on composite panels with the creation of IMPACT CONTROL®, and more than 600,000m2 are installed. The exclusive process of IMPACT CONTROL® panels reduces rainfall noise on veranda roofs. The company influences the market by transforming the veranda into a comfortable living space.

2010

Creation of factory platforms

After the Paris and Marseilles platforms created in the '90s, a third factory platform is created in Bordeaux to expand local service to aluminum carpentry professionals. Today, AKRAPLAST® has grown to four sites in France, serving virtually the entire territory:

  • 1 in Paris
  • 1 in Bordeaux
  • 2 in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region

2014

Development of the true flat-roof veranda

Pricey aluminum extensions are on the market but out of reach. With its 25 years of experience in the field, the company seeks to develop a solution that works for homeowners.

It designs a patented, unique watertight flat-roof veranda system: the WATER DRIVE SYSTEM®. With a scant 1% slope roof composed of a built-in drainage system, the product stands out as the genuine flat-roof veranda.

Espace Lounge® is born.
