For more than 100 years, the name FOPPE has been a guarantee of quality and absolute customer orientation in metal and window construction.
For more than 100 years, the FOPPE name has been a guarantee of quality in metal and window construction. Both FOPPE Metallbaumodule GmbH and FOPPE Direkt Versand GmbH are being run successfully and continue to be improved and advanced.
A logical step was the introduction of the FOPPE + FOPPE umbrella brand to consolidate the common know-how and the innovative competence of manufacturer, specialised dealer and fabricator.
Elements and accessories for metal and window construction
FOPPE + FOPPE offers market compatible and complementary products along the entire value-added chain of metal construction, from finished elements to aluminium systems and a full range of accessories.
"Our primary objective is to enhance the efficiency and productivity of our customers. This is reflected in our product range and also is the guiding principle in all management decisions," explain managing directors Gaby and Johannes Foppe.

State-of-the-art metal engineering
FOPPE MODULE covers a range of state-of-the-art metal engineering services, from planning and calculation to the finished element. The division offers windows, doors, façades, lift-slide elements, fire protection elements, as well as conservatories and terrace canopies as construction kit solutions or finished elements.
With planning and consulting, calculation service or selected make-to-order levels, metal workers and fabricators get competent support and assistance from the FOPPE team. They are always free to select the machining stage themselves.
In addition to CNC profile machining, FOPPE MODULE offers its products in kit form or as complete solutions. FOPPE customers can choose from the Heroal, Hueck Hartmann, Kawneer Alcoa, Sapa, Schüco, Wicona and FOPPE systems.
Mounting window elements
The FOPPE SYSTEME division, with its versatile system solutions, sets a new standard for mounting window elements. Among other solutions, it offers a new system for the safe fitting of windows in the insulation plane of façades. The FOPPE EMS+SI element mounting system ensures proper mounting and compliance with the requirements of the German Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV).
The HT90+SI aluminium series for windows and doors features U-values of markedly less than 1.0 W/m2K and holds a leading position in the marketplace. It meets architectural requirements, such as narrow visible faces and concealed fittings.
Systems for lift-slide doors, full glass lift-slide doors, terrace canopies, as well as the great variety of conservatory roof designs allow diverse customer requirements to be met. With the FOPPE system solutions, metal workers and fabricators can offer customers sophisticated and reliable designs and constructions.
Products for metal and window construction
FOPPE ZUBEHÖR offers a wide range of products for metal and window construction. Customers have 2,200+ cleat versions and more than 4,000 branded products to choose from, both in the main catalogue and in the online shop. Interest continues to grow in cleats for special corners, made of pipes, U-sections and object-specific system profiles.
As an alternative to the frequently used mounting brackets of steel, FOPPE ZUBEHÖR offers the FOPPE EMW mounting angle. It can be used as a safe and solid support for all elements at the parapet. It also provides a continuous base for sheet material and window sills.
Tested T-cleats and corner cleats
FOPPE ZUBEHÖR offers ift-tested T-cleats and corner cleats, as well as compensating blocks and seals designed to match the Heroal, Kawneer Alcoa, Schüco, Wicona and FOPPE brands.
Recent additions to the product range include BSG balustrade glass panels for French balconies, competitively priced stainless-steel handles manufactured in Germany, and the highly insulating FOPPE FROTH-PAK foamed concrete for solid support at the base of large-size elements, such as lift-slide doors.
All the accessories and tools offered for manufacture, transport, mounting and sealing of windows, doors, glass facades, conservatories and terrace canopies are available at short notice.
One Vanderbilt is a 58-storey mixed-use tower being built in Midtown, New York, US. At a height of 1,401ft (427m), the building will become the second tallest tower in the city.
FOPPE + FOPPE presents four systems for a modular overall solution for highly heat-insulated building envelopes under the umbrella brand FOPPE F3.
The FOPPE EMS+SI assembly system introduced a year ago has experienced very positive feedback on the market. Developed from practical experience, the solution enables an economic, as well as statically and energetically sound fixture for windows and doors in the insulation base.
FOPPE Direkt Versand incorporates another attractive product for window fitters and assembly operations into its range with FROTH-PAL. The in-situ foam for highly insulating foaming keeps its shape with an enormously high pressure resistance of 150kPa. The B2 class product impresses with its good sound and heat insulation and is moisture-resistant.
The highly insulated aluminium FOPPE HT90+SI profile for windows and doors has set the benchmark for thermally separated aluminium constructions since its market launch just over a year ago. Now Siegenia and KFV confirm that the system is also high quality for burglary resistance. The profile effortlessly achieves RC 2 classification due to its sturdy construction with an internal polyurethane solid body.
Just in time for the Fensterbau and Frontale trade fair in Nuremberg, FOPPE launches a new system that solves a typical problem in the installation level of floor-length window and door elements. There is often insufficient load transfer on insulation installed onsite. This is important, not least because architects and builders increasingly decide on larger, or rather heavier, door and window elements.
Whether in two-shell masonry or in an external thermal insulation composite system windows and doors, as a rule, are fitted in the insulation plane.
Under the FOPPE f3+ label, FOPPE + FOPPE offers profile systems with high thermal insulation as well as efficient mounting solutions for realization of energy saving facades.
French balconies are becoming increasingly popular. With these structures, all-glass balustrades from FOPPE + FOPPE serve as an invisible safeguard against falling.
Any system is only as good as its component parts: system construction using extruded profiles therefore must stand or fall on the quality of the cleats used and their efficient handling, among other things.
