Celebrating the Jewels of South Africa with REHAU
Women’s Day has its origins in one of the largest demonstrations staged in South Africa’s history- 20 000 women of all races marched to Pretoria’s Union Buildings on 9 August 1956 to present a petition against the carrying of passes by women to the then prime minister, JG Strijdom.
The march against the pass laws was organised by the Federation of South African Women (FSAW or FEDSAW). The Federation challenged the idea that ‘a woman’s place is in the kitchen’, declaring it instead to be ‘everywhere’. At REHAU, we celebrate women and believe that a woman can be whoever or whatever she wants to be – whether in the kitchen, boardroom, construction site, political environment or teacher. Women are concerned about the environment, saving money and time.
At REHAU, our products help overcome these concerns Our uPVC window and door systems have excellent thermal properties and can achieve high levels in energy efficiency. They also have a life expectancy in excess of 35 years and their uPVC parts can be recycled at the end of their service. The other great thing is that REHAU uPVC window and door systems are also very low maintenance – they contain a unique compound that results in a smooth gloss finish – so ensuring they keep their pristine appearance. It also means that they will never warp, rot or need re-painting. Women have the knack of turning a house into a home. REHAU provides beautiful and versatile options in doors and windows to make the task even easier.
Whether it is residential, in-line sliding, multi-folding, French or bespoke doors, REHAU has an option you will love. Not forgetting our beautiful window options in tilt and turn, casement and sliding; our uPVC windows include ingenious design and excellent performance. Who says you can’t have it all? Like our windows and doors that are not only beautiful, but strong, so are the women of South Africa. REHAU celebrates the wonderful, brave women of South Africa.
