The 4th Industrial Revolution at FOR ARCH 2018

How can you imagine the set of the fairs FOR PASIV and FOR WOOD? CHECK IT...


New things waiting for you within FOR ARCH 2017

This year’s edition of the International Building Trade Fair FOR ARCH, which is the largest event of this type in the Czech Republic, was extraordinarily successful again. Altogether 841 exhibitors presented their expositions there, 67 of them coming from abroad from 15 countries of the world, and the number of visitors thus exceeded the limit of 71,000 persons. This success would not have been possible without involvement of our long-term partners, and therefore we would like to express our thanks for the demonstrated support to the general partner of the trade fair, the ČEZ Group, to the car manufacturing company FORD for official cars of the trade fair, to the organisations and other institutions which provided their auspices for the event, as well as to all our professional and media partners. At the same time we would like to express our great thanks also to all visitors whose support is at the same time a great challenge for us in the future as well.

FOR ARCH 2017 to focus on the area of security technology

Nevertheless, the preparations for the next edition of the trade fair are underway already now. The International Building Trade Fair FOR ARCH 2017 will take place from 19 to 23 September at the PVA EXPO PRAGUE Exhibition Centre in Prague-Letňany and will be focused on its new branch dealing with current trends and technologies in the field of security technology, systems of protection of buildings, security services, and last but not least also with the state-of-the-art information technologies and cybernetic protection. Dita Štěpánová has been entrusted with management of this branch. In terms of its content it will replace the FS Days (Prague Fire & Security Days) Trade Fair which has been organised as a part of the FOR ARCH Trade Fair for the last time this year.

Simultaneously held trade fairs will be merged under one brand

Large organisational changes are planned together with the new topic for the next edition of the International Building Trade Fair FOR ARCH as well. This means that the trade fair will not be divided anymore according to traditional branches into the simultaneously held trade fairs FOR STAV, FOR THERM, FOR WOOD and BAZÉNY, SAUNY & SPA, but on the other hand, it will be merged into one whole, which is to bear an umbrella name for all the existing topics. This decision will lead to the strengthening of the FOR ARCH brand on the one hand, and at the same time it will serve for the general public from the viewpoint of making the content of the event organised more transparent. All the accompanying materials will therefore be prepared for visitors in an individual graphic design, which may help, within the framework of the trade fair, to much easier orientation.

The two-day forum under preparation will present the latest building technologies and also their use

Already now you may look forward also to the brand-new two-day TECHNOLOGICAL FORUM, which is to arise in cooperation with the TZB-info portal. This will involve an informal meeting of professionals with representatives of state administration and self-government structures, whose aim is to help municipalities to use modern technologies for savings, development and effective maintenance and to intermediate contacts with technicians, designers and architects. In cooperation with the Ministry for Regional Development, Ministry of Industry and Trade and Ministry of the Environment, at first presentations will be made for various subsidy programmes for subsequent years and then this information will be followed up by leading manufacturers from the field of the building industry, use of water, electrical technologies, security and heating, who are to present the latest technologies and products together with their possible use to investors in short sessions.

The FOR ARCH 2016 Trade Fair is opening its gates just today!

The twenty-eighth edition of the largest International Building Trade Fair in the Czech Republic is opening its gates for visitors this afternoon. The FOR ARCH Trade Fair is held at the PVA EXPO PRAGUE Exhibition Centre and will last till Saturday, 24 September. More than eight hundred exhibitors from fifteen countries of the world will present there the latest trends from the field of the building industry on an exhibition area of almost 21,000 square metres.

Within the framework of the accompanying programme it is furthermore possible to attend specialised conferences with participation of leading personalities in the sector, important nation-wide architectonic competitions as well as a practical programme for entrepreneurs and the general public.  A great innovation compared to previous editions is given by various daily topics - quality of products, energy performance management, professional education, smart house concepts and self-built house constructions. Newly it will be possible to use also the independent BUILDING ADVISORY CENTRE where professionals will provide, free of charge, useful advice within the framework of the daily topics focused on the ways of how to manage various construction issues. In terms of additional topics, FOR ARCH will be complemented by the accompanying trade fairs FOR STAV, FOR THERM, FOR WOOD and BAZÉNY, SAUNY & SPA.


The FOR ARCH Trade Fair will start this afternoon by the largest CONFERENCE OF DIRECTORS OF DESIGN COMPANIES 2016 in the Czech Republic, where it is possible to listen to such speakers as Andrej Babiš, Minister of Finance; Karla Šlechtová, Minister for Regional Development; and Richard Brabec, Minister of the Environment. Another interesting part of the programme will be, in the subsequent days, for example the lecture entitled HEATING AND VENTILATION IN MODERN SAVING BUILDINGS, the conference FIRE SAFETY OF CONSTRUCTIONS and popular B2B business negotiations known as MATCHMAKING BUSINESS MEETINGS. Precious information will be provided to visitors by such conferences as HOW TO PURCHASE HOUSING and SELF-BUILT HOUSE CONSTRUCTION. For the first time it will be possible this year to use services of the CONSULTANCY CENTRE FOR WINDOWS AND SHADING TECHNOLOGIES which is to be open for the entire time of the event.

The most serious problem of wood as a building element is its relatively high combustibility

Directors of designing companies consider the relatively high combustibility of wood to be the most serious disadvantage of the building use of wood. On the other hand, the possibility of mould attacks causes the least concern. This conclusion implies from the analysis which was prepared by the analytical company “CEEC Research” for the International Building Trade Fair FOR ARCH.


The main disadvantage of the wood as a building element is its relatively high combustibility, according to directors of the designing companies. More than one half of them (53 per cent) shared this view in their answers. Concerning the remaining part of respondents, the most serious problems of the use of wood are, in their opinion, its limited lifetime (17 per cent of directors), humidity issues (16 per cent of directors) and pest attacks (13 per cent of directors). Only an absolute minimum (1 per cent) had concerns about increased occurrence of moulds as the main disadvantage. Major differences appeared in the answers of representatives of the companies dealing with preparation of engineering constructions. Higher combustibility compared to other materials is the main disadvantage of the building use of wood for two thirds of them (65 per cent), while less than one tenth had concerns about the limited lifetime (7 per cent).


On Tuesday, 20 September, the first of the daily topics of the Building Trade Fair FOR ARCH, which is to be held from 20 to 24 September at the PVA EXPO PRAGUE Exhibition Centre, will be prepared for those interested - namely the issues of quality of products and materials, including the rating figures. During the course of the event, the visitors will learn how attestations and certifications of products and materials are carried out, in what way building products are assessed, what is necessary to do for successful placement on the market of a product and how this important topic is resolved in legal regulations and European standards. Besides this, an independent BUILDING CONSULTANCY CENTRE (SPC) will be prepared for visitors in the ENTRANCE HALL II, where specialised experts are to answer various questions from the field of the building industry free of charge.

The FOR ARCH Trade Fair to introduce a comfort and environment-friendly digital household of the future

This year’s edition of the International Building Trade Fair FOR ARCH, which is to be held at the end of September in Prague-Letňany, has chosen, as one of the current topics, also the so-called “smart house” which is able, through its structure and technologies used, to ensure maximum comfort and energy-efficient environment for the people living there. A special ELEKTRO section will be reserved in the hall number 4 to the firms which are active in this sector. The general partner of the International Building Trade Fair FOR ARCH 2016 is the ČEZ group.


Friday, 23 September, will belong, in this year’s concept of various daily topics at the FOR ARCH Building Trade Fair, which is to be held on 20-24 September at the PVA EXPO PRAGUE Exhibition Centre, to the “Smart House” topic. A smart house ensures optimum and comfort environment for people living in such a house, in terms of its structure, used technologies and control systems. It is highly effective in terms of economy, energy consumption as well as from the viewpoint of impacts on its external environment and enables a multi-purpose use and reconfiguration. Its description often uses also such terms as “digital household”, “digital house” or “intelligent house”.


A properly prepared design is very important for implementation of a smart house. Its heart consists of a central system which helps, through modular infrastructure and individual active elements, to automate the operation of the entire household. Its control is very intuitive and it can be used for the control of e.g. air conditioning, shading, hot water preparation, irrigation, communication, distribution of TV and video signals, radio and music, telephones as well as the Internet. An important factor is the optimum and effective control of thermal technology and ventilation, thanks to which it achieves large energy savings. A matter-of-course is then connection of all illumination to the central system in such a way that it responds to your activities in a fully natural way. A smart house takes care also of household safety and provides you, at any time and anywhere, an overview of its current state, including alarms, fire sensors and camera systems. The system is also able to simulate living at absence, by using the pre-programmed activation of lights.


The visitors who are interested in this sector of the building industry should not miss the special ELEKTRO section in the hall no. 4, which has registered, in recent years, a growing interest in presentation of firms, especially from the fields of electrical installations, intelligent housing and lighting technology. It is traditionally attended by the LEGRAND company, the world leader in the area of electrotechnical installations and digital infrastructure offering almost 200,000 products from the field of illumination control, heating and data network administration, by the company HDL Automation s.r.o. supplying individual modules, as well as complete automation systems of buildings, and by ELKO EP, s.r.o., which is genuinely a Czech specialist focused on electronic modular instruments – relays, manufacturing more than 200 types of these products.


At present, ČEZ is not just a supplier of energies but also of comprehensive energy management solutions for households, which we are to introduce at the FOR ARCH Trade Fair in an entertaining way,” says Pavel Cyrani, Director of the Business Division of the ČEZ Group. “We have equipped a mobile household with them, and in September we will make a tour of Czech towns with this mobile household, and one of our stops will be just FOR ARCH.” The saving household of the future from ČEZ, which is to be presented at the trade fair, includes photovoltaic panels on the roof, together with batteries for the storage of electricity, modern gas boilers and white consumers, heat pumps for heating as well as air conditioning, in a combination with building materials of the 21st century, which are supplied by Saint-Gobain.

Ambrovit to present Ambrovit Terrace Screws

Exhibitor: Ambrovit S.p.A.

Stand: Hall 1

Sector: FOR WOOD


Our 04364 terrace screws stand out for a variety of characteristics. Their cylinder trim-head is meant to be sealed into the wood and ensures maximum grip and a perfect aesthetics. The inverted under-head thread pushes the wood particles down during drilling, guaranteeing a clean finish, while the trilobular thread is ideal for hardwood surfaces, providing three contact points instead of one. The special saw-toothed type 17 point accelerates the drilling and reduces the danger of splitting the wood. Soon also available with flat head (05364), the terrace screws don’t need pre drilling. Their stainless steel versions (04367 and 05367), however, do. The special 1000 Hr three-layered Nano coating ensures extremely high resistance against rust and weather damages.“type-17

FOR ARCH to support building trades and establishment of cooperation with foreign companies

Rich accompanying programme of FOR ARCH 2016

The 27th FOR ARCH International Building Trade Fair will take place on 20-24 September 2016 at the PVA EXPO PRAGUE exhibition centre. For the first time in its history, it will present a different daily topic for each day of the event. Visitors will thus be able to learn about the issue of product and material quality, energy efficiency of buildings, ventilation systems, professional training in the construction sector, the “smart building” phenomenon and self-made construction work. Professionals at the CONSULTANCY CENTRE will give visitors expert advice according to the daily topic. Within its exposition, the State Environmental Fund of the Czech Republic will provide information on state-funded subsidies.

FOR WOOD to present high-quality wooden buildings and wood components

Current wooden buildings do not have anything in common with historical building systems based on wood, former cottages and log cabins or with constructions for emergency housing purposes anymore. Wooden buildings have made a great leap forward, from hand-made manufacture to manufacturing processes in modern plants and high-precision and fast assembly on the construction site.

From a dedicated survey it implies that customers who decide for wooden buildings appreciate especially the rapidity of construction works. Another essential benefit of wooden buildings is energy savings. The technologies which are currently used by companies in this sector make it possible to achieve low-energy or even passive standards. For this reason, there is no wonder that wooden buildings are perceived as a construction system of the future.

The FOR WOOD trade fair responds to the growing demand of the public for wood constructions and is focused on the use of wood in the building industry from the structure up to the roof. Every year it presents technological innovations and modern materials making it possible to propose demanding structures and structural elements of wooden buildings.

FOR WOOD is held in PVA EXPO PRAGUE, the largest exhibition centre in the Czech capital, as part of the FOR ARCH trade fair, the single most important and most attended fair of building industry in the Czech Republic. The event is a well-established meeting point of professionals from the field of buildings and constructions. Due to its location in Prague, an important centre of Central-European business, FOR ARCH and FOR WOOD offer a unique opportunity for both domestic and foreign exhibitors to present their services and products within an international competition.
