At the BAU 2023 in Munich, Forster invites you to discover the latest systems in steel for architecture and interior design with their slogan “innovative new solutions”. 

At the centre of the trade fair concept is the “Cube”, which vividly conveys the product portfolio’s diverse range of possible applications. Based on architectural projects that have been implemented worldwide, visitors can experience how the complex requirements of contemporary functionality, elegant aesthetics and maximum safety can be combined.

With its trade fair presence at the BAU 2023 in Munich, Forster is putting the spotlight on the combined expertise of the company in the development and production of high-quality profile systems in steel. In addition to the wide range of applications, a whole series of trade fair innovations can be seen for the first time. These include two innovative door solutions for the indoor area – firstly, the particularly slimline forster presto XS profiles in an application as a pivot door with eye-catching qualities and secondly, the telescopic sliding door with forster fuego light for maximum safety and barrier-free passage in high-traffic areas. As the only highly thermally insulated window solution in 100% steel worldwide, Forster is also presenting a new system version from forster omnia, which has been developed specially for use in sustainable architectural projects.

Filigree eye catcher: forster presto XS and forster unico XS

Steel profiles with extremely slimline face widths are in demand both as part of refurbishments in line with listed building requirements as well as in energy-efficient new buildings – both in the exterior and interior areas. With its new pivot door forster presto XS, Forster is presenting an interior solution for extravagant design requirements at the BAU 2023. The door solution can be freely positioned either with or without a frame, has a turning radius of 360° and creates a light-flooded, open sense of space.

The pendant forster unico XS for use in the building shell is also comprised entirely of steel and exhibits its qualities in the form of thermally insulated windows, doors and fixed glazing: In addition to the filigree design from 23 millimetres, they have outstanding insulation values and are not only particularly long-lasting, but can be recycled with little effort.

Energy efficiency at its best: forster omnia

forster omnia will celebrate its premiere in Munich with the addition of a window solution in a class of its own for use in a façade. The profile system boasts a particularly low Uf value of only 1.2 W m²/K and is suitable for use in highly thermally-insulated façades. Windows with forster omnia are also especially robust and can be adapted flexibly to changing functional requirements, which makes them particularly interesting for use in architectural projects with a high standard of sustainability.

Space saver for fire protection: forster fuego light 

The new telescopic sliding door forster fuego light for the interior area ensures safety wherever numerous people are on the move and little space is available. With its EI30 certification, the automatic door system not only meets the highest requirements for fire protection but also offers versatile installation options – both in lightweight and solid walls or in glazed partitions.

How is this reflected in practice? Complex solutions in the “Cube” 

The “Cube” in the centre of Forster’s exhibition stand shows how the windows, doors, glazing and façade systems meet the complex requirements of functionality, safety and aesthetics, based on architectural projects that have been implemented worldwide. The elegant steel constructions not only lend modern glass façades a sophisticated character, but also allow historic buildings to shine in timeless, long-lasting new splendour. Thanks to their energy efficiency, long service life and environmentally friendly use of materials, Forster profile systems are the right choice when it comes to sustainable and forward-looking construction.
