The RAUFERNO PVC-U fire resistant windows and fire resistant door system, a patented industry first, is based upon and has all of the design and security benefits of the REHAU S706 70mm profile. The system provides an array of design options for you to install throughout a building in the following areas:

  • Fire escape routes
  • Entrance halls
  • Deck access flats
  • Fixed windows (close to other buildings)
  • Windows (fixed) / doors between a house and integral garage
  • Fixed fanlights (and sidelights coupled to doors)

RAUFERNO provides you with all the safety and security of traditional fire rated products, but with PVC-U’s added inherent benefits of:

  • Improved thermal insulation
  • Sound proofing
  • Characteristic low maintenance
  • Excellent security options

With performance of all fire rated products so critical, REHAU and Euroglaze has taken every step possible to ensure unsurpassed standards of manufacture through approved fabricators. To receive REHAU accreditation, all fabricators (who must be BSI, BBA or FIRAS accredited) must undergo certified REHAU training and provide proof of a top level QC system which Euroglaze are proud to have attained. To ensure correct installation, installers must be trained by a recognised scheme for fire products.
