“We’ve never been let down”: why Building Product Solutions work with Edgetech

A leading South Yorkshire IGU manufacturer has begun buying from warm-edge pioneers Edgetech – motivated in part by the company’s intuitive new e-commerce platform.

Founded in 2009 amid a deep recession, Rotherham’s Building Product Solutions overcame the economic crisis to become a highly respected presence in the IG sector, noted for its commitment to innovation and consistent quality.

The company has won loyal customers around the region with its strong work ethic, quick turn-around times and excellent service – and it was its desire to continuously improve that led it to enquire with Edgetech.

“We switched over to Edgetech because of the great combination of supply and cost-effectiveness they were offering,” comments Dominic James of Building Product Solutions.

“Their e-commerce offering was also a big factor in why we decided to switch, and has benefitted us greatly.

“So far, they’ve always met our demand. We’ve never been let down. Even in the current climate, we can rely on them for great service.”Tony Palmer - Account Manager

Edgetech’s Head of Sales, Tony Palmer, comments: “We were delighted that Building Product Solutions chose Edgetech, and that they’ve benefitted from our e-commerce platform.

“We implemented e-commerce to make customers’ lives easier. Our library feature allows users to save their previous orders, so they can quickly and simply re-order each time.

“We’d strongly encourage any IGU manufacturers looking to save time, increase productivity, have consistency and quality in application from a supplier you can trust to improve their business across the board to get in touch!”

Heritage success for Slenderpane

Warm Edge Super Spacer Bar Heritage for traditional rebate

Double-glazing has been the norm for so long now that it’s easy to forget there are still thousands of buildings around Britain where conventional double-glazed units just aren’t an option.

Often, that’s because strict conservation rules won’t allow it. Sometimes, it’s simply because a homeowner doesn’t want to spoil an older property’s vintage aesthetics.

But whatever the reason, it means there’s still significant demand for IGU manufacturers who can offer 21st-century performance in slim, heritage-appropriate packages.

High-performance slimline IGUs

Since 2011, Buckinghamshire-based Slenderpane have been providing exactly that – high-performance slimline IGUs that are virtually indistinguishable from single-glazed units.

Their ultra-slim sightlines allow for the elegant fixed-glazing bars that are part of the character of so many period properties – and Slenderpane’s decade of heritage glazing experience, combined with the skill and expertise of their spacer supplier, Edgetech, mean that their units pass EN1279 Parts 2 and 3 with flying colours.

“At Slenderpane, our goal has always been to provide outstanding quality double-glazed IGUs that don’t require heritage property owners to compromise on aesthetics,” comments Technical Sales Manager Dave Parker.

“Edgetech have played an integral role in us reaching that objective, and their advice and support has been invaluable, particularly when it came to EN1279 testing.

“Passing Parts 2 and 3 shows customers around the country that we’re able to offer the high-performance heritage IGUs they need to help older homes achieve modern energy efficiency standards – and with less than thirty years to go until the UK’s 2050 deadline for net zero carbon, that’s more relevant than ever.”

Edgetech Managing Director Chris Alderson comments. “We’re delighted that Slenderpane are continuing to see success with their heritage units.

“Super Spacer® Heritage™ was expressly designed to help leading manufacturers like Slenderpane achieve traditional aesthetics, fast application, high levels of productivity, and, above all, exceptional unit performance.

“We look forward to continuing to support them for many years to come.”
