Should you have any questions throughout the entire process your sales representative will be happy to provide you with current order status, answer any questions and sometimes even provide pictures from the production floor showing your particular order.
Once production is complete, your order is transferred to the logistics department. There, your windows and doors are packed onto special wooden pallets, wrapped with a protective foil and carefully fastened together.
If required for large glass elements or upon your specific request, we can pack the goods into wooden crates. This offers the maximum safety to your products. This service comes with extra costs and is subject to the acceptance of the logistic company. They are then prepared for transport to the port via truck or alternatively to the airport.
