Torterolo & Re S.p.A.
Torterolo & Re was founded in 1964 – initially it operated as a small business producing high specialist joinery. Within a relatively short time, however, its focus changed towards the emerging market for bespoke Security Door Sets.
As well as the core business of Security Door Sets, producing high quality specialist, additional products – shutters, security blinds, fire doors and emergency / escape doors have been added to the product range.
Always sensitive to the demands of the market and individual customer requirements, Torterolo & Re attaches great importance to formal accreditation and certification to ensure that appropriate regulations are met and maintained. In 1995, this was evidenced by the fact that the Company was one of the first in its sector to attain UNI 9569 (an important standard at the time that demonstrated conformance with essential building and materials directives). In terms of current production, all products are engineered to attain the widely recognised European standard ENV 1627 (Class 2, 3 and 4).
A programme of testing door sets to LPS 1175 is now underway as well.
In the growth and development of the business, in 2000 the product portfolio was expanded as a result of an exclusive collaboration with Pininfarina, the leading, world renowned design house. As a result a range of Designer Door Sets has been created which, like all our products is continually modified and updated.
To build on the close working relationship with Pininfarina, in 2004 a range of internal designer doors was also added.
With a strong and genuine working philosophy of continuous improvement, recent initiatives have focused on green issues and particularly the drive to obtain energy savings. In line with European directives, and with in excess of 100 tests undertaken at leading European laboratories and test houses, the Company’s pursuit of competitive excellence continues.
Since 2009, all Torterolo & Re products have obtained the CE kite-mark.
Today, Torterolo & Re prides itself in being a leading producer of bespoke Security Door Sets; its high quality products which are subject to constant engineering, innovation and product development and a highly versatile and flexible product range is exported to over 50 countries globally.
