„A Business Ethics Prize is granted to KAV Hungária”

Since 2000, the foundation of the Business Ethics Prize, it has been a renowned recognition in Hungarian business life. It was established by Professor Ervin László, Chairman of the Budapest Klub, and Mária Demcsák, founder and chief editor of Piac & Profit business magazine, with a view to draw attention to domestic businesses that set an example by their activity in responsible and ethical management, business presence and strengthening trust between society and the business sphere.

This year 46 companies submitted eligible applications, through nominations by economic actors and chambers, and also individually. KAV Hungária is one of the companies awarded a prize.
The panel, consisting of the founders and managers of earlier winners, decided on the basis of a separate set of criteria, including the importance of consciousness and social commitment towards a liveable and sustainable world for the individual company.

The Business Ethics Prize was awarded at the awards ceremony held by Piac & Profit in the evening of 16 November. This event was the closing event of the Hungarian Sustainability Summit, as before.
The management of KAV Hungária would like to say thank you for the Prize and extends its congratulations to the other winners.

A refined aesthetic for doors and windows
The popularity of the minimalist style in architecture is one of the reasons that aluminium doors and windows entered the family house sector. Applying the principle of “less is more” to architecture led architects and designers to use unique solutions and austere or transparent surfaces. In a minimalist home, simple shapes and forms help create an atmosphere of harmony, where space itself serves humanity.

Windows in the service of maximising the view
Frameless windows are favourite elements in houses built in modern and minimalistic styles, since, thanks to the nearly invisible frames, the external and internal spaces almost connect; in this way, nothing disturbs the view, and also natural light may flow into residential spaces through a greater surface.

Production of custom doors and windows at the KAV plant
Most domestic companies selling aluminium doors and windows do not have their own production capacity. However, in KAV's imposing manufacturing plant, they are able to resolve even seemingly impossible profile connections. This is where further thought-out versions of Schüco or Reynaers profile elements and completely unique door and window solutions are manufactured, designed and developed by KAV engineers. We talked to Albert Herbut, the head of KAV's Kisbér plant, about the production processes and the operation of the plant.

Facade structures for full transparency
Curtain walls connect several large glass surfaces into a single structure, many times in an invisible manner. Initially these elements were exclusively used in communal building technology but, with the penetration of the minimalistic style, it also appeared in the family home segment. Today it is the most dynamically developing branch of the closing structure market, in that these surfaces are suitable for individual solutions where only the imagination of the client and the designers can set the boundaries.
