Research & Development: functional and sustainable solutions

The point of departure for Brakel products, systems and solutions is customisation. Which means that Research and Development fulfils a key role in the Brakel organisation. It enables us to respond quickly to market demands... whether they concern aesthetic desires or requirements dictated by regulations.

Increasing demand for sustainable solutions

Sustainability is becoming increasingly important, at every level. Building users and clients set high requirements for the quality of indoor climates. Inspired by nature, Brakel‘s R&D team is constantly looking for solutions that are even more intelligent, effective and energy efficient. And in addition to being sustainable, it‘s also important that these solutions save money!
