Direct Window Co achieve 'C' rating with a little international expertise

The Direct Window Co have achieved a ‘C’ rated window thanks to the help and support from Edgetech, For.El and machinery supplier Promac.

The company has invested in a For.El fully automated Super Spacer® line from Promac which was running throughout Glassex. This new line is capable of processing a glass unit with a better thermal performance, thereby helping improve the overall energy rating of the installed window.

The British Fenestration Rating Council’s (BFRC) window energy rating scheme has been widely discussed in the glass and glazing industry and the warm edge technology inherent in Super Spacer® has provided the Direct Window Co with the opportunity to provide a window with a low energy rating.

Craig Goss, managing director of the Direct Window Co comments: ”We are delighted with the investment that we are making. It was great to discuss this with all those involved in the project at Glassex. We had the opportunity to speak to Gerhard Reichert from Edgetech and Sergio Cosano from For.El.”

Joe Hague, head of the glass division at Promac explains the relationship with machinery supplier For.El: “We have worked closely with For.El to develop a number of Super Spacer® solutions, everything from a manual applicator to a fully automated line. As the energy rating issues become ever more prominent we expect further glass processors to embrace this latest technology.
