Fensterbau Frontale 2024: AkzoNobel to exhibit its Sikkens Wood Coatings

AkzoNobel will be exhibiting at this year’s Fensterbau Frontale event – which takes place from 19–22 March 2024 in Nuremberg, Germany – joining with partners to highlight the strength of its collaborations and using this as a platform to celebrate the collective expertise, creativity, and best practices within the industry.

The company will also be demonstrating the enhanced performance and potential of its refreshed Sikkens Wood Coatings brand. Visitors will be able to experience the beauty and durability of Sikkens Wood Coatings solutions, alongside a programme of events and presentations that promote new application practices as well as giving insights into colour trends, demonstrating its commitment to applying possibilities.

The booth will bring together European wood supplier, Dekker Hout, and windows and door manufacturer, Niveau. The stand design incorporates Dekker’s cladding and decking, and Niveau’s windows and doors, which are also coated in trending colours and finishes.

The Sikkens Wood Coatings team has also invited other industry partners to join its own specialist teams in giving topical presentations to share industry knowledge and insights.

Nordbo Robotics will discuss how innovative automation can be used to bring uniform results to wood coating applications, as well as enhancing overall product quality and reducing waste. Experts from Nordbo will present on each of the three days and be on hand to answer questions.

Heleen van Gent, Head of the AkzoNobel Global Aesthetic Center, which is responsible for AkzoNobel’s ColourFutures™, will discuss AkzoNobel’s annual global research into colour and design trends, and the rationale behind AkzoNobel’s 2024 Colour of the Year – Sweet Embrace™.

Mark Korsmit, Regional Commercial Director Wood Finishes EMEA, says: “Fensterbau Frontale is the perfect event to connect with like-minded industry professionals. We’re pleased to be back at the world’s leading trade fair for windows, doors and façades – and with a new look for our own brand.

“Our passion for wood and our trusted range of durable, versatile products empowers our partners and customers to achieve their visions,” says Mark, “and we’re very much looking forward to welcoming people from across the industry to explore the possibilities that our coatings offer.”
