Neher History - The Insect Screening Experts since 1973.

Since 1973, Neher has been writing one success story after another in tailor-made insect screening.

What has happened over the years and how we have become number 1 in insect screening can be found here:

2018

Office extension & new pleated blinds

Relocation of the administration headquarters

Good things come to those who wait: The extension of the administration and the workshop has finally been completed. The new offices and the additional space for workshop and storage have been occupied and are already being used extensively.

PL2 Pleated Blinds

The new PL2 pleated blinds were presented to the public at the two leading trade fairs R&T and Fensterbau Frontale. They impress with some clever detailed solutions and an installation depth of only 22 mm.

2017

Building extension and growth

New administration building

As expected, the new construction of the administration building and workshop, which began at the end of last year, will occupy us for the entire of 2017. The new offices and the additional space for workshop and storage are urgently needed thanks to our constant growth.

Neher-App 2.0

On 01/04/2017, the new Neher App 2.0 replaced the Neher App, which has proven itself a thousand times over. It is available on the Neher Homepage under Neher App 2.0 and in the different Appstores. After activation, the entire catalogues, videos, pictures and the new variant finder are available to the Neher specialist dealer. Together with our software partner, Gandalan, we have completely revised Bestellfix (order fix) and integrated it into the Neher App 2.0. The digital future is already here – we at Neher are helping to shape it.

2016

Brand and growth

Neher - insect screening

We are proud to have been included again in the well-known “Brands of the Century – Stars 2016” compendium. It includes 250 major German brands that are synonymous with your product category. Like Steiff – for the teddy bear, Tempo – for the handkerchief, and also Neher – for insect screening. More information and a video can be found here.

Fresh impetus for 2016

After continuous growth in 2015, Neher Systeme also started this year with success. A new fibreglass fabric and a modern additional standard colour for lightwell covers round off the product range.

Extension building for administration and production

What would a year without construction be like for Neher? Kind of unfamiliar. And that is why we have started to expand our office and production capacities for the future. This development is one of the largest and most complex since the company’s new building in 1996 and will continue to occupy us in the coming year.

2015

The year of process optimisation

Software and Logistics

After the extremely successful introduction of the Neher app and other logistics software solutions in 2014, we are now working on increasingly connecting them with each other and with the individual processes across the process chain. You won’t see this directly, but you will notice it when the right product is installed quickly and without any faults during the season.

Further developments in sliding systems and motorised roller screens

The new ST4 sliding systems series and the new ER1 and ER2 motorised roller screens, which can also be constructed in particularly large sizes, are increasingly spreading across the market. Especially on an international level, exciting projects are arising with these products.

And by the way, we're going to be building again

It’s getting to be a running gag, but Neher’s starting to build again. This year in particular our climate-controlled warehouse will be enlarged to keep up with the steady growth. Here some of our products are stored at a constant temperature to guarantee the constant high quality of our insect screens.

The Neher App

We at Neher want our customers to be happy with our products. No matter whether you are a producer, specialist dealer or end customer, we want you to be comprehensively and competently informed. For this purpose we have now developed the free and platform-independent Neher app, with which all Neher specialist dealers have all the important information at their fingertips. Be it in the workshop, in the office or on site during measurement, consultation and assembly.

New sliding systems and motorised roller screens

Following the trend towards ever larger windows and doors, Neher has developed new insect screening products for precisely these installation cases. These are, on the one hand, the ST4 series of sliding systems and, on the other, the new ER1 and ER2 motorised roller screens.

Neher is building again

We are pleased that we are still growing, even though this requires a further 50% increase in our high-bay central warehouse. Because we want to continue to be able to supply you quickly and reliably with the products you require.

Awards and prizes

After Neher received several important prizes and awards in 2012, the trend continues in 2013. The almost invisible Transpatec fabric has already received the following awards:

  • The Innovation Award 2012 from the State of Baden-Württemberg, Dr.-Rudolf-Eberle-Prize
  • The Innovation Award 2012 from R&T, the world’s leading trade fair for roller screens, doors/gates and sun protection, in the “Technical Textiles” categories
  • The red dot design award 2011
  • The iFdesign award 2012

Title

Neher is one of the strongest brands in Germany. This documents the decision of a high-ranking advisory board to include the Neher Insect Screening brand in the well-known “Marken des Jahrhunderts – Leuchttürme auf dem Markenmeer” (“Brands of the Century – Lighthouses on the Sea of Brands”) compendium and to award it the “Markenpreis der Deutschen Standards” (“German Standard Brand Prize”).

2013 is a year of process optimisation at Neher

Following the numerous technical product innovations in 2012, this year Neher concentrates more on internal process optimisations. The focus is on an even smoother, safer and faster processing of orders (from measurement to data input, material ordering, production, delivery and assembly).

2012

The latest from Neher

New brand image

With the new brand image Neher is becoming even more modern, fresh and understandable. Not only the pictures, but all advertising media, from the flyer to this website, have been completely revised.

Numerous technical detailed improvements

Neher was not only active in marketing, but also in technology, with many product improvements. This ranges from the sliding system to the roller screen to the stentering frame. Your Neher specialist partner will be happy to show you the individual products and improvements.

Construction of new IT and F-; E-Centre

The newly built research and development building can be seen as proof that Neher wants to continue to lead the way in the future. The software programmers of Neher’s IT partner, Gandalan, will also find a new, prestigious home here.

2011

The latest from Neher

Transpatec now also available in roller screens

The almost invisible Transpatec fabric has caused a sensation since its market launch in 2010. Neher is now continuing this success story. After minor technical changes to the system, the fabric can now also be used in roller screens.

More variation and application possibilities

The new grip frame, which can be operated from both sides, can be used on all revolving and swing doors and thus creates completely new, even more convenient operating options, even in tight installation situations. The extension of the sleeper-free pleated blinds to 1.70 m single-leaf width enables completely new applications. Always the right solution – Neher meets this demand with new variations based on the system that has proven itself millions of times over.

2010

The latest from Neher

We invent practically invisible insect screening

Yes – nobody thought that the outstanding properties of Transpatec were possible. With the Transpatec insect screens we have taken insect screening for windows and doors into a new dimension.

First a tent warehouse, then a new high-bay warehouse put into operation at the Frittlingen plant

In 2010, our new high-bay warehouse was completed and the dispatch logistics switched from analogue to digital. An automatic bar storage system as well as a reorganisation of our manual warehouse were established.

A part of the warehouse was housed for a short time in tents in order to allow the reconstruction work to take place inside the permanent warehouses. The change in logistics is enormous. From paper and ballpoint pens to mobile barcode scanners. A brilliant achievement by our employees in mastering this innovation during ongoing operations.

Neher Systeme is well equipped for the future.

2009

The latest from Neher

More than just a new sliding system

The technical highlight for 2009 is the completely newly developed sliding system. This creates possibilities which far exceed those of previous insect screening. Leaf heights of up to 3 metres without rungs are possible without problems due to the particularly stable profile. The new roller is height-adjustable, automatically centred above the running rail, and safely guided. With the help of the optional foot control, the door can be operated safely and comfortably with the foot, even if you don’t have any hands free.

Elegant look for the lightwell covers

The new, additional standard colour dark grey with mica effect of our lightwell covers is slip-resistant and impresses with its high scratch resistance and low susceptibility to soiling.

2008

The latest from Neher

Focus on insect screening fabric

The fabric is the soul of an insect screen. For the year 2008, Neher paid special attention to the development of two new products that set completely new standards: the Polltec pollen screening fabric and the almost invisible transparent fabric. The enthusiastic reactions at the presentation at the Fensterbau Frontale 2008 in Nuremberg confirmed this.

Live better - without pollen

The new Polltec pollen screen reliably keeps over 99 percent of grass and birch pollen away, with even over 90 percent of particularly fine pollen from ragweed or nettles remaining outside. Air permeability is improved by up to 300 percent compared to other pollen protection fabrics.

A newly developed mesh concept also allows improved visibility through the fine screen, which holds the particles not only mechanically but also by attraction. All in all, this insect screen represents a revolution in protection, light and air passage and durability in the pollen screen market.

The goal: invisible insect screening

Equally positive were the reactions to the new and almost invisible transparent fabric (today: no longer included in the product range, as it was replaced by the even better (and cheaper) Transpatec insect screens). This captivates due to its almost unhindered transparency and a strongly improved air permeability.

2007

The latest from Neher

New inventions and many product innovations

The visitors at the Innovation Days were more than enthusiastic about the new products and detail improvements from Neher’s designers and marketing experts. The unanimous note: “When can we produce it?”

Neher swing door

The wait has been worthwhile, the designers have eliminated the weaknesses of the conventional construction principles of a swing door with the new construction. 120 degree opening angle, narrow and stable construction, ingenious production processes.

Neher - without insect screening?

TERRESA, the new wooden terrace inlay, is the first Neher product without insect screening. TERRESA was developed from the proven materials used in the cellar shaft solutions. Architects, garden designers and wooden patio manufacturers at BAU 2007 were thrilled. “A real innovation – that’s what we’ve always been looking for.” With TERRESA there is now also Neher quality for the wooden patio. You can find more information under: www.terresa.de

2006

Perfectly simple and simply perfect.

Like everything else from Neher, the innovations in 2006 are practice-oriented. The best – simple and perfect.

Insect screening roller screen R5

Simple, narrow and affordable – these are the striking features of the new R5 insect screening roller screen.

Neher cross roller screen

The further development of the Neher cross roller screen enables improved operability as well as even faster, simpler and more flexible installation.

Stentering frame SP1/70

Can Neher improve the stentering frame at all? Yes. Simpler operation, simplified measurement, simple assembly – that is the new SP1/70 stentering frame with clamping screw assembly.

2005

The latest from Neher

Neher warehouse logistics further optimised by a new high-bay warehouse

It’s already almost routine. By expanding the storage capacity with a new high-bay warehouse, it was again possible to improve the complete warehouse logistics.

Lightwell covers extended

Two new product innovations have been added to the Lightwell covers product line. The market launch of ELSA (left) and RESi (right) was completed in record time.

Bestellfix

Together with our partner company, Gandalan, Neher presents the first Bestellfix (order fix). With the help of this free software, Neher dealers can quickly, securely and easily create offers and manage orders. A milestone in company development and a further step towards a digital process chain.

2004

“Is it even possible to improve Neher’s technically perfect insect screening system?”

... asked a Neher partner aptly. The answer was clear - YES

The developers in Frittlingen exceeded themselves with their inventive spirit and were able to inspire the Neher manufacturing partners. The new insect screening products and technical improvements bring significantly more benefits for the customer. Even more comfort and convenience with Neher Systeme – Germany’s big brand.
