Ever since the founding of the company, EHRET has relied successfully on aluminium as a construction material – with good cause: window shutters made of aluminium are sturdy, lightweight and affordable and can stand up to the worst of the weather. Even after decades of exposure, they look almost as good as new.
Easy to care for
economical and durable
As the powder coating on aluminium profiles never chalks or becomes brittle, there is no need for them to be dismantled at regular intervals for renovation and painting.
Occasional cleaning is not really essential and any dirt that adheres loosely is easily washed off with water.
Because they last for such a long time and can be recycled when they finally come to the end of their lives, EHRET shutters are a valuable and sustainable investment.
Aluminium can be recycled any number of times in an environmentally friendly process. Our innovative in-house developments and extensive, certified quality standards are your guarantee of consistent excellence in materials, workmanship, safety and durability.
pre-treatment and maximum protection
The pre-treatment and powder-coating technique effectively protect the shutters against weathering and scratches. Because it complies with QUALICOAT and QUALIDECO guidelines, EHRET can guarantee maximum coverage and long-lasting fade resistance. Because there is no need for repainting, this spares the owner a lot of work.
- Durable without the need to repaint
- Resistant to dirt and simple to clean
- Extremely weather-resistant
- The impact-proof surface is scratch-resistant and maintenance-free
QUALICOAT is a quality label organisation committed to maintaining and promoting a uniform guaranteed quality standard for the painting and coating of aluminium and its alloys for architectural applications.
The comprehensive requirements and compliance are monitored regularly.

Ocean Line plus –
extra protection against filiform corrosion
Ocean Line plus was developed for areas subject to extreme environmental conditions, e.g. areas close to the coast or exposed to high levels of salt mist or road salt or locations in aggressive industrial climates.
Filiform corrosion is a type of corrosion that occurs in aluminium parts underneath the powder coating as a result of certain environmental conditions. Despite good bonding and workmanship, corrosion occurs, starting in cut edges. Over the course of time it can destroy the coating.
Thanks to additional anodisation, the coating is given the best possible protection offered by present-day technological standards against filiform corrosion.
Conventional pre-treatments do not provide sufficient protection under such adverse conditions (proximity to the coast, swimming pool, chemical industry), as has been indicated by objective studies.
