PVC honeycomb profiles make Geplast’s shutter box highly insulative

Benvic helped Geplast develop its FoKus rolling shutter box with better thermal and acoustic insulation. It benefits from different grades of PVC – rigid and plasticised, virgin and recycled. The recycled PVC compound re-uses internal production scrap while maintaining similar performance. FoKus is the only shutter box to achieve 53 dB (without having to glue a heavy mass). Another innovation is that the shutter blade guarantees full darkness and thermal insulation when unrolled, while letting in four times more light and air than traditional blades.
