ODL Europe have signed up to FENEX, the new industry virtual exhibition which kicks off on in November with the Doors, Windows and Hardware mini Expo. Nathan Barr, Managing Director of ODL Europe said: “We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to our virtual stand and showing them what ODL Europe has to offer. We are launching some exciting new products this year, including our new Guardsman FD Fire Door, which has the ability to revolutionise this sector and FENEX visitors can see this for the first time.”
The new Doors, Windows and Hardware Expo will run throughout Friday 27th and Saturday 28th November, 2020. Nathan said: “At a time when face-to-face events are simply not an option, virtual exhibitions offer an exciting opportunity to engage with potential new business. We all have to think differently on how we engage with our audience and FENEX provides an easy to use, highly interactive experience for both exhibitors and visitors”.
As Nathan mentions, the company are launching several new composite doors this year to help add value to their customers’ businesses. The new doors include the new Deco Door which is a cottage-style door offering sophisticated heritage styling. Also available is the Moderne contemporary door which delivers modern aesthetics and the Guardsman FD Fire Door has what it takes to revolutionise the fire door sector. It’s the result of a six-figure investment in research and development and a vital collaboration with Winkhaus, which is home to the FireFrame fire door.
Commenting on the new Guardsman FD Fire Door, Nathan said: ”Our ambition was to develop a fire door that didn’t use phenolic foam in its core which we know is an unstable product. Instead, we have used solid core Agrifiber technology, which is stronger and more stable. The doors are currently being tested under the EN1634 European standards for fire resistance and smoke control with some extraordinary results being achieved.”
The new doors will be available to see along with ODL Europe’s additional market-leading products including Blink® blinds + glass, glazing cassettes and their new composite door glass.
Nathan concludes: “FENEX promises to be a step-change in exhibition platforms and as a forward-thinking business, we are proud to be taking part in the inaugural event.
