ift Rosenheim – Institut für Fenstertechnik

Introducing ift Rosenheim

Since it was founded in 1966, ift Rosenheim feels obliged towards a holistic view of building components and constructions. The ift accompanies the window, facade and door industry, regardless of materials deployed, in all questions related to standards, research, accreditation as well as verification of tests or calculations and certificates.

A team of scientists, engineers and practitioners in various fields of expertise, and state-of-the-art equipped laboratories at hand, offer excellent preconditions for the verification of all product characteristics. Additionally, the ift certification body is certified to establish its own rules for the specification and assurance of product quality.

 

ift Rosenheim acts as a leading authority in disputes, offering scientific analysis of the cause of damage and developing feasible plans for refurbishment. Collaboration with national and European standardisation commissions and convenorship of important committees in Europe warrant the standardised implementation of technical requirements and their surveillance.

 

ift also supports its clients in international market activities, aiming to avoid multiple tests or surveillance operations. ift Rosenheim provides new knowledge in form of standardised specifications, guidelines, certification schemes, professional publications, workshops and seminars.

 

During trade fairs and conventions of the industry, the latest trends and innovations are presented in an appealing and effective way to the public.

 

The History of ift Rosenheim

 

Die Einweihung des ift-Labors „Bauakustik und Fassaden“ findet am 9. Juni 2021 in Rosenheim in direkter Nähe zum ift-Technologiezentrum statt. Auf 1.440 m² kann das ift Rosenheim insbesondere bei großformatigen Bauelementen die bauakustischen Eigenschaften sowie Luft- und Schlagregendichtheit, Windlast, Stoßfestigkeit, Erdbebensicherheit und Klimawechsellasten optimal prüfen.

Prof. Jörn P. Lass übernimmt die Leitung des ift Rosenheim von Professor Ulrich Sieberath.

Mit dem iftLAB in Arnsberg im Herzen von NRW bietet das ift Rosenheim zusammen mit Athmer deutlich verbesserte Prüfmöglichkeiten für diese Region an. Das Labor ist mit Prüfgeräten der ift MessTec optimal für die Prüfung von Schall, Luft-Wind-Wasser, Dauerfunktion, Rauchschutz und Einbruchhemmung ausgestattet. Auch baurechtliche Prüfungen sind möglich.

Der am 21. November 2018 offiziell eröffnete Standort „ift West“ in Rheda-Wiedenbrück verbessert die Kundennähe in NRW und dem Nordwesten von Deutschland. Das ift-Gebäude „Die Alte Wache“ auf dem Gelände des Schlosses Rheda dient dem ift West als Stützpunkt für die technische Abstimmung von Probekörpern, Prüfungen auf firmeneigenen Prüfständen sowie weiteren Dienstleistungen.

Im Jahr 2018 feiert das ift Rosenheim die Eröffnung von ift Hrvatska und ift Hellas. Damit ist es in Kroatien und Griechenland durch selbstständige Gesellschaften vertreten. Deren Gründungen ermöglichen es, dortige Kunden besser zu bedienen und flexibler auf Anfragen zu reagieren.

Am 10. März 2017 nimmt die NPZ (Notifizierte Produktzertifizierungsstelle Brandschutz) des ift Rosenheim in Nürnberg ihre Tätigkeit in neuen Büros auf. Das Gebäude mit dem Namen „Schiff“ befindet sich im Nürnberger Main-Donau-Park. Die ift-Experten stehen hier für kundennahe, umfassende Dienstleistungen für Hersteller und Systemanbieter von Feuer- und Rauchschutzabschlüssen inkl. Zubehör zur Verfügung.

ift Labor Meachnik - TG4

Wenn Experten mit langjähriger Erfahrung im Ofenbau (Peiner Ofen- und Feuerungsbau (PeOF)) und der Entwicklung von spezialisierter Prüf- und Messtechnik (ift MessTec) Hand in Hand arbeiten, entstehen innovative und leistungsfähige Anlagen. Diese erfolgreiche Teamarbeit wird in der neuen ift MessTec GmbH ausgebaut. Als Tochter des ift Rosenheim geht die neue Gesellschaft am 1. August 2016 an den Start. (v.l.n.r.: Manfred Globke mit den beiden Geschäftsführern Matthias Fröhleke und Stephan Lechner)

Einweihung des neuen Technologzentrums des ift Rosenheim

On 8 June 2016, the ift Technology Center (TZ) was inaugurated in Rosenheim. With a total investment of EUR 7.5 million the most modern test centers for components arose on a floor space of 3,000 m². Large-sized doors, gates, walls and stud walls with dimensions up to 8 x 5 meters are tested on durability, burglar resistance, wind load, air permeability, wind and water tightness as well as on smoke protection and fire resistance.
