Doors & Windows: Portals to the future
The need for more daylight, ventilation, outdoor air and sound insulation assumed greater importance during the course of the pandemic, resulting in increased investment in innovation.
When the pandemic hit India last year customers started looking for optimising costs, and the increased time spent at home changed buyer preferences for doors and windows. Innovation and value assumed greater importance.

This was one of the central questions of the Construction World Virtual Round Table Conference on “Doors & Windows”, held recently.
Participants included the captains of the Doors & Windows industry and discussed how have designs adapted to Covid-19 pandemic? How does digitalisation affect the cost of the product?
