Three humorous commercials to encourage homeowners to renovate with NF-certified windows

Starting on March 21 and lasting for three weeks, viewers of France Télévisions channels (France 2, France 3 and France 5) and BFM TV will discover a funny mini-saga to raise awareness among homeowners, specifiers and tradesmen about the benefits of NF-certified windows.

Using quirky humor, three skits show a couple living in comfortable housing that seems comfortable but who are in reality faced with annoyances due to the poor quality of their windows:

  • Temperature
  • Noise
  • Energy costs

...today’s three main reasons for replacing windows!

So, why choose an NF-certified window?

“Fenêtres NF” certification is a voluntary quality procedure for window manufacturers, suitable for any type of material.

This is a trusted quality mark certifying that the characteristics of a window were tested, point by point, using the most demanding standards, to accurately determine its performance level for criteria including wind resistance, air infiltration, thermal insulation, water tightness, acoustic insulation, opening and closing resistance, mechanical testing and operating force.

NF-certified windows are tested by an independent certification body during manufacture and two annual comprehensive production audits.

More than 200 showings during one month on France Télévisions channels and BFM TV

  • BFM TV: 170 showings from September 21 to October 11
  • France 2: 11 showings from September 21 to October 11
  • France 3: 4 showings from September 22 to October 9
  • France 5: 26 showings from September 21 to October 10

This TV campaign will be coupled with Web banners and graphic presentations on websites focusing on the home, home improvement and decoration. For more info on NF-certified windows, visit www.fenetres-nf.fr, where you can watch the three videos from the campaign (also available on YouTube).
