Industry wakes up to Window Energy Ratings at Edgetech seminar


Jim Moody talks on bringing energy rated windows to market

223 key decision-makers in glass and glazing discussed some of the biggest issues affecting the industry at Edgetech’s Increase Your Profits: Energy Efficiency in Focus seminar on Wednesday 10 May. Delegates at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena included the BBA, BPF, CAB, leading media, fabricators and installers, and systems companies including Synseal, Deceuninck, Plastmo, Rehau and the Epwin Group.

Questions from delegates helped fuel the debate on issues from cutting VAT on Energy Saving Recommended products to gas loss and the longevity of sealed units.

“Information was expertly and professionally offered. I believe that this initiative [Window Energy Ratings] will have a major impact on our industry and that it will be consumer driven in a way that we have not previously seen,” comments Mark Warren, Managing Director of Lister Trade Frames Ltd.

“The success of this seminar (with seating extended twice to accommodate delegates) shows the industry is waking up en masse to the Window Energy Ratings,” observes Andy Jones, Sales Director and General Manager for Edgetech UK. “It’s time for the industry as a whole to move forward and take advantage of this vital opportunity.”

Alan Griffiths of Broad Street Windows describes the day: “A great event…really useful and enjoyable.”

For those who couldn’t make it on the day, a film crew is producing a DVD of the seminar, available in the next two weeks. It will also show interviews with delegates including Joe Hague of Promac, Andy Ball of Profile 22 and Adrian Locker of Newstead.
