From 14th to 17th November 2006 - Paris Expo - Hall 1 - Porte de Versailles

The 5 main topics in 2006
In a French construction market under development within the European market, everything is set up so that EQUIP’BAIE becomes the first European meeting place for all building openings and fittings industry.

1 - Glass,
Glass is present in nearly all bay fittings and is guaranteed to attract a lot of attention at every show. When asked "Which area of EQUIP’BAIE will you visit in priority?", architects and interior designers all give the same answer: glassware!
EQUIP’BAIE therefore means to continue with the partnership it has entered into with the French Federation of Glassware Professionals:
- Organisation of a "Glass" crossroads where exhibitors will be brought together around the FFPV.
- Presentation of the "Best of Glass" awards during the show.


2 - Windows,

The principal branch of Industry in progress is Renovation, which is more and more based on distribution and installation networks and outlets set up by the most well-known manufacturing companies.

By combining thermal comfort with visual comfort, fabrics offer new possibilities in the design of office buildings, shops and stores, hotels, and even houses.


5 - Roller shutters,
By gathering together the main European roller shutters manufacturers, suppliers of blades, accessories, and drives, not to mention machine manufacturers, EQUIP’BAIE has become a true reference towards the roller shutters industry. Architects, contractors and distributors all come along to discover the new solutions on offer from manufacturers.
