Moreover, to prove the safety of the DXW, visitors could watch a bike performance held at FAKRO stand.

FAKRO puts all efforts to satisfy the changing needs of the market by creating easily controlled products. Visitors of the stand could control the electric PTP-V roof windows in Z-Wave protocol and Bluetooth. When operating the PTP-V Z-Wave window a distance does not matter, and this quality is very useful for the most demanding customers. Additionally, the electric window is equipped with the rain sensor.
