Netzwerk von Menschen in Vogelperspektive, verbunden mit Linien

Membership of Institut für Fenstertechnik e.V.

The Institut für Fenstertechnik e.V. is a registered association supported by the windows, facades, doors and gates manufacturing industry and their ancillary industries, e.g. for glass, sealants, hardware and more, as well as by other sustaining members. The variety of topics related to its membership structure and accreditations are the basis of institutes neutral and independent status.


The objective

The objectives of the association are governed by non-profit purposes and serve to sustain the improvement of product quality, designs, and technologies as well as standardisation procedures, research and teaching. Revenues and membership fees also serve this purpose. For this reason, the articles of ift Rosenheim exclude all free of charge services.

The annual General Meeting of members takes place in mid-October, during the Rosenheim Window and Façade Conference, aiming to increase the dialogue and exchange of ideas between ift and members. Moreover, this exchange of information related to current questions is continuing actively, and on a practical basis in ift´s panels as well as directly, in contact with clients. The ift team provides personal services on a daily basis for its members, and ift members are also preferred partners for research and development as well as for the creation of new guidelines or for presentations at trade fairs.
