Shares orders across locations
Ohio-based FeneTech, a global leader in fully integrated ERP software solutions for the fenestration industry, will display its next-generation software FeneVision Ultimate at WinDoor. FeneVision Ultimate includes many new features and offers even greater ease of use. Designed for glass fabrication and window and door manufacturing companies, FeneVision Ultimate is its most comprehensive software version released to date. In addition to the established features of FeneVision Core (which have also been further enhanced), FeneVision Ultimate includes scores of new functions including a fully integrated customer relationship management module, enhanced return material authorization functionality, additional mobile apps as well as additional optimized features for multi-site companies, corporations and large enterprises. With FeneVision Ultimate, it is possible to plan capacities across multiple production sites without having to issue separate orders among sites of a multi-site corporation. Status control is provided across those branches. Fully automatic and transparent status visibility is available across all involved sites—all from one single-source sales order—no matter how complex the product to be produced may be. Additionally, eventual changes to original orders are automatically shared among involved production companies.
Turnkey fast drying
Global specialist in coatings and doorlites, RegaLead, is back at WinDoor, this time in conjunction with Schuberts Technical Services, a market leader in smart drying solutions. Recognised in Europe as a top coatings supplier for vinyl/PVC and fiberglass/steel doors, RegaLead will not only be showcasing its range of ultra-low VOC, mix-on-demand paint solutions, but, with Schubert’s support, visitors will see start-to-finish turnkey solutions for coatings and finishing, including a new range of woodstain effects, smart booth drying systems and everything required for a company to bring door spray-painting in-house. Regalead’s mix-on-demand offering allows customers access to over 10,000 colours in-house, minimising waste, reducing lead times for colour and thus addressing one of the industry’s biggest challenges. Sharing the Booth with RegaLead is Schubert’s Technical Services, a global leader in low-energy, gas-catalytic drying systems. With up to 80 per cent lower operational costs compared with electrical equivalents and typical drying times of 20 to 30 minutes for fiberglass doors using either traditional solvent 2K or water-based RegaLead coatings, the Schuhbox has proven itself across the globe.
Regalead recently appointed York Towne Supplies of Richmond Hill, Ont., as distributors for Ontario, but the company is actively seeking distributors and agents across the country.

Supports flexible integration
To further support window and door fabricators with innovative solutions, Fentro offers high-quality hardware manufactured by Siegenia. Featuring its best-in-class Titan AF series, this modern hardware system has undergone diverse product enhancements. The system allows for flexible integration into existing production processes and reduces installation time, thereby opening up significant opportunities to save costs. Using only high-quality materials, Siegenia hardware provides efficient workability and maximum functionality while offering extensive design options for more individual room comfort. To supplement its hardware portfolio, Fentro likewise offers window and door handles and accessories made by world-renowned European manufacturers. These include Hoppe handles, CES locking systems, Wemaro specialized tools, PHI shims and blocks and SPAX screws.
This year, P.H. Tech will be displaying Celesta, an all-new multi-track patio door, among other high-quality products. Celesta boasts a much wider opening than classic patio doors and is available in a three-panel and six-panel version. Multiple finishes and contemporary handles are available and are perfectly tailored to meet your needs.
Thanks to Celesta’s triple roller track, the panels – welded or mechanical – overlap to create an opening that can be as wide as 23 inches. Each operating panel has a set of stainless steel tandem rollers that support the weight of the operating panels during motion. Moreover, its robust profile design offers superior thermal performance, strength and durability, without reinforcement. The multiple panels slide easily thanks to the carrier piece which has a rubber bumper firmly fixed on it. Even the assembly is easier with a higher clearance to insert the sashes. P.H. Tech also took every imaginable opportunity to provide an immaculate finish and easy upkeep, with details like identical jamb covers in and out with no visible screws and an anodized aluminum sill cladding.
