A rare opportunity to see high automation in action was offered at Double R Glass & Roofing Systems’ recent Open House event. Open to customers and prospects and with time set aside for the industry’s media, the company showed the culmination of months of work designing and installing the quickest vertical IGU Super Spacer Automatic Hot Melt line in the world – the first of its kind in the UK.
Managing Director of Double R, Ian Sims explains: “We’re extremely proud of the circa £1m investment we made into this For.El machine and the amount of quality units it allows us to produce on a daily basis, so we had no qualms in opening our doors to anyone who wanted to come and see it in action. It really is a sight to behold with high quality IGUs being produced at record speed. We believe this is the future of Double R but also the future of IGU production.
“Visitors to our factory also received a tour of the rest of our premises including our impressive and experienced decorative department and the extensive range of glass and solid roofs produced in our dedicated roof unit. They also had the chance to chat with our suppliers, with whom we work extremely closely to ensure we deliver on customers’ expectations on a consistent basis. The suppliers supporting us on the day were Edgetech, Bostik, Promac, CENSolutions, ER Certification and Clear Thinking Software.
“Congratulations to Three Shires and CRK Windows who won the two prize draws held across the event.
“Although our Open House ran for two days, we are so proud of Double R and our offering that we are happy to welcome fabricators and installers to our premises at any time. Anyone that wants to arrange a time to visit can call us on 01933 443658 to make an appointment.”
