Batimat 2007:

Dural presents its new CSTB test certificate
for Tilux Board at Batimat 2007
Montabaur;- Batimat is France’s most important building trade fair and takes
place between 5th and 10th November 2007 at the Paris Exhibition Grounds.
Among the exhibitors will be Westerwald profile and matting specialists
Dural, who will again have their own stand, Stand E61 in Hall 7.2. There is a
decisive method behind the company’s presence at the fair as France is one
of Dural’s key export markets.

The exhibition will cover an area of 225,361 m², taking in 11 exhibitions halls, 2,700
exhibitors from 49 countries and hosting more than 400,000 visitors. The event is
one of the biggest and most important building fairs in Europe. Batimat 2007 will
focus on renovation this year, recognising the increasing importance of this aspect
in the overall market.

This comes at the perfect time for Dural, since their new product Tilux, specifically
designed for bathroom renovations, has just received official certification from the
CSTB in France. This means that the innovative Tilux Board is even now in
possession of a test certificate, which already sets it apart from the products of
other manufacturers. Tilux comprises a sturdy board made of EPS rigid foam, to
which is attached a waterproof sealing foil, which enables it to be quickly and easily
installed as a level-floor shower unit with no impeding shower basin. The Tilux
Board is extremely tough and is strong enough to take a wheelchair, meaning even
the disabled can shower in comfort. Its excellent resistance to point loads means
that it can even be tiled with miniature mosaics. Other advantages include its
shallow height when installed that can be as little as 10.5 cm. A drainage flange is
included as supplied, which also adds to the ease of installation. Both vertical and
horizontal drainpipe attachments are available.

In Paris Dural will also be utilising the broad public reach of the fair to present a
large sampling of other products including its new decorative profiles for walls and
floors. The company’s central theme at the fair will be its competence as a supplier
of complete systematic solutions. Dural is not only one of the world’s leading
manufacturers of profiles for tiles and natural stone floors but also provides
numerous solutions for parquet, laminate, elasticated or other textile floor
coverings. Aids for flooring installations such as the Durabase mats for sealing
decoupling, drainage and footfall insulation and valuable tools such as the Tilesitter
and Tileminator also complement the Dural range.
