Under the motto “Opening night”, EGGER presented novelties from all three company divisions at the BAU fair 2017 in Munich.
Between 16th and 21st of January 2017, the BAU in Munich once again became the meeting point for everyone in the construction industry. The world’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials, and systems attracted approximately 250,000 visitors and once again provided the wood-based materials manufacturer EGGER with a perfect stage to present its products and services. Under the motto “Opening night”, the international audience was introduced to innovations from the Furniture and Interior Design, Flooring, and Wood Construction divisions.
Numerous visitors passed through EGGER’s 400 m2 exhibition stand during the six days of the BAU. They received information about various design and construction opportunities in the Furniture and Interior Design, Flooring, and Wood Construction divisions: EGGER Design+ Flooring, future-oriented solutions for wood construction, and particularly the first public presentation of the new EGGER Decorative Collection 2017-2019 for retail, handcraft, and architecture caught the attention of visitors. “The BAU fair 2017 was very successful for EGGER. Our exhibition stand very much attracted a lot of visitors from all customer groups on all days of the trade fair. In addition to many fabricators and architects, we welcomed a particularly large number of international retail and DIY customers at our stand. Our visitors were very much interested in our product innovations. We had some good talks which reflected the overall positive sentiment towards the present business situation and a positive outlook for 2017,” concludes Ulrich Bühler, Head of Sales & Marketing EGGER Group.
EGGER trade fair highlight: the premiere of the EGGER Decorative Collection
The highlight of EGGER’s trade fair presentation in Munich was definitely the launch of the new EGGER Decorative Collection 2017-2019. It includes decor and surface innovations as well as an expanded product and services offer for retail, handcraft, and architecture. The collection offers an inspiring range with numerous novelties, resulting in a comprehensive solution for the challenges faced by customers in their everyday work. With 300 decors, a service-oriented products offer, and the set of matching decors and materials, the wood-based materials manufacturer provides a concept for a quick, reliable, and successful system. Fabricators and architects receive excellent support during each project phase, from the first idea to the final implementation.
New design flooring inspired trade fair visitors
The trade fair presentation of the wood-based materials manufacturer also focused on the flooring segment. It introduced the new flooring category EGGER Design+ Flooring, in addition to showing the popular laminate flooring and the Cork+ Flooring. This design flooring is suitable for all types of rooms where a floor covering is expected to be highly resistant but at the same time look good. The core of the design floor consists of a double sealed, high-density, wood-based coreboard: the Ultra Wood Fibre Board (UWF). The floor’s cover layer is made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). With a material thickness of only 5 mm, authentic decors, high resistance, high shape stability, and the SelfRepair effect, this type of flooring is particularly well-suited for public and commercial use.
EGGER wood construction products for indoor and outdoor use
At the BAU in Munich, the wood construction sector focused on future-oriented solutions for wood construction. The wood-based materials manufacturer presented a terrace decking board called EGGER Thermodecking made of domestic pine. Thermal treatment reduces its susceptibility to insects and fungi. This means that the durability of the boards reaches an impressive 15-25 years. The EGGER Ergo Board, the so-called “one-man board” expands EGGER’s building products offer. The versatile, ergonomic construction board only weighs eleven kilograms and was developed especially for indoor dry construction.
