World-leading warm-edge experts Edgetech have returned from a highly successful Fensterbau Frontale.
Widely acknowledged as the world’s biggest and best fenestration expo, Fensterbau routinely attracts hundreds of thousands of glazing experts from all around the world.
Regular exhibitors at the Nuremberg event, Edgetech have been a pioneering force in the field of high-performance glazing for more than thirty years, and its stand showcased the excellence and innovation that have made it a respected name throughout global construction.
With Super Spacer, thousands of IGU manufacturers have been able to substantially increase energy efficiency and overall unit performance – and with the advent of automation, and ever tighter environmental regulations, outstanding spacer technology is more vital than ever, as Edgetech UK Managing Director Chris Alderson explains:
“Last year we showcased at major glazing events all over the world, and this year we’re doing the same – visiting Germany, India and China among other destinations. And wherever we go, we find more interest in warm-edge products than ever.
“In large part, I think that’s down to the growing appeal of automation for IGU manufacturers. Exceptional thermal performance is now the norm – between 70 and 80% of sealed units now incorporate warm edge technology, compared to just 5% in 2007.
“That’s led to rapidly rising demand for products capable of delivering the very best thermal efficiency – and, in turn, to many firms embracing automation as a way of keeping pace. With companies like Edgetech able to offer automated lines that can produce an IGU every twenty seconds, the efficiency gains are obvious.
“At Fensterbau, it was great to be able to discuss issues like these with IGU manufacturers from all over the world, and we look forward to developing the new contacts we made into lasting, mutually profitable relationships.”
Edgetech’s Super Spacer is the leading foam warm edge spacer product on the market, offering easy application, 100% memory and exceptional thermal efficiency and condensation resistance.
The firm also manufactures an extensive range of other flexible components, including its commercial-focused TriSeal and T-Spacer and conservation-friendly Heritage product, as well as a number of rigid products.
