Coatings for state-of-the-art doors and windows

Ensure your customers state-of-the-art solutions complying with UNI 11717-1 standard. 
Minimum requirements of resistance to degradation of wood and of coating systems for wooden outdoor furniture.

The role of exterior grade coatings

During last decade, demand of wooden doors and windows frames drastically decreased in favor of plastic materials. This trend is not only driven by the economic comparison. Too often wooden doors and windows frames have shown an insufficient durability due to a wrong design. A losing game in which also a wrong coating system plays a leading role.

A standard for
high-quality doors and windows frames

UNI 11717-1 standard was created in order to define the minimum requirements of resistance to degradation of wooden substrates and of coating systems. UNI 11717-1 standard reflects the state-of-the-art, is not compulsory and it is not a certification. Renner Italia laboratory chemists took part to UNI committee debates as experts in exterior grade coatings. Compliance to this standard means to produce state-of-the-art doors and windows frames and to distinguish your own trademark for quality, seriousness and reliability.
