Fit Show

Everyone’s a winner at Edgetech’s action-packed FIT 2019

Edgetech at FIT ShowLast month’s FIT Show was a momentous one for warm-edge experts Edgetech, who used it to celebrate thirty years of a landmark product and introduce an innovative new rigid spacer bar.

At the company’s striking stand, located in the event’s dedicated VISIT Glass area, leading figures from across the industry gathered to mark the 30th anniversary of Super Spacer, the pioneering product that helped make warm-edge mainstream.

After a brief birthday presentation from Managing Director Chris Alderson, the assembled guests were then introduced to the company’s latest innovation.

What is Edgetherm RS?

Edgetherm RS is an ingenious rigid spacer designed to eradicate the PIB migration problems that commonly spoil the looks of many ageing IGUs.

Designed and tested in Coventry by Technical Development Manager Gary Shoesmith, the product is a step forward in rigid spacer bar technology, its unique design offering enhanced productivity, durability, thermal performance and aesthetics.

After the product launch was over, it was time for a toast – attendees scratched off the panels of specially-made Edgetech scratch cards to see if they’d won a free drink at the VISIT Glass Bar. Everyone was a winner!

Edgetech welcomed senior colleagues from all over the world to the NEC for the three-day event.

Johannes von Wenserski, Edgetech Europe’s Prokurist, was on hand to support his UK colleagues, and Joe Erb, the company’s highly experienced Commercial Projects Manager, flew in from America to give daily seminars on the changing landscape of architectural glass specification.

Edgetech was also joined by gas filling experts Inagas, who demonstrated their range of high-tech gas filling and Sparklike gas testing equipment.

“We were humbled and delighted by the support we received at this year’s show – not just from colleagues and customers, but the trade press and show-goers as a whole,” comments MD Chris Alderson.

“The reception Edgetherm RS received was great, and the feedback we got on our new e-commerce system, which we were demonstrating on the stand, was extremely encouraging too.

“A very heartfelt thanks to everyone who took the time to visit the stand. Our launches at the show were just a taster of our focus on innovation. We look forward to showing you more of what we’ve been working on over the coming months.”

Edgetech FIT Show Stand 2019

Warm-edge experts Edgetech will launch a state-of-the-art product at FIT Show 2019.

From the 21st-23rd May, the respected firm will be showcasing the new offering, alongside a whole range of other cutting-edge innovations, to thousands of visitors from right across UK fenestration.

Edgetech’s stand will form part of VISIT Glass, the new show-within-a-show entirely dedicated to glass manufacturing, processing and installation.

There, visitors will be able to see live demonstrations of both Edgetech’s best-in-class spacer products and its intuitive new online ordering system.

What’s more, Edgetech’s Commercial Projects Manager Joe Erb will be flying in from the US to give a daily seminar, and, on the Tuesday night, the company will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its flagship Super Spacer with a party at its stand.

“We always look forward to the FIT Show, but this one is shaping up to be particularly special,” comments Edgetech Managing Director Chris Alderson.

“We’ll be taking the opportunity to celebrate Super Spacer’s astounding success over three decades with friends throughout the industry. We’ll be introducing customers to our new e-commerce system. And, after a lot of intensive research and development behind the scenes, we’ll be unveiling a cutting-edge new spacer product for the very first time.

“I’m also delighted that Joe Erb, one of Edgetech’s most senior and long-serving employees, will be making the journey to share his wisdom with us!

“What’s more, we’re sponsoring the VISIT Glass bar – so head down and have a drink on us! We look forward to seeing you in May.”

Edgetech’s biggest FIT Show yet

Charlotte Mercer, Edgetech’s Head of Marketing, explains why FIT Show 2019 is shaping up to be so special.

At Edgetech, we always look forward to exhibitions. We were early supporters of the FIT Show and have exhibited each year since it launched.

It’s not just a great way of raising your profile – it’s an invaluable opportunity to take the temperature of the industry and get a feel for where it’s heading.
But this year, it’s shaping up to be particularly special for us for two reasons.

One – Super Spacer is celebrating its thirtieth birthday.

Over three decades, it’s blazed a trail in the world warm-edge spacer market, and been installed in millions of homes right around the globe.

Thirty years later, Super Spacer is still the leading foam warm-edge spacer. Companies around the world use it to complete ambitious architectural projects like Dubai’s striking Museum of the Future, and in renovations to the Eiffel Tower.

Its increasingly in demand as a way of automating window production, and manufacturing products that offer outstanding performance, too.

So what better place to mark those incredible achievements than at the biggest event in the glazing industry calendar?

Two – we’re releasing a brand-new product!

We’re not going to spoil the surprise beforehand though so you’ll have to head over to our stand to find out.

This year, you’ll find us as part of VISIT Glass, the exciting new show-within-a-show aimed at giving glass manufacturing, processing and installation a national platform.

The VISIT Glass section will combine key exhibitors representing leading brands with thought-provoking seminars on the hottest topics in glass and glazing – including ones from one of our most senior staff members!

We’re incredibly excited that our Commercial Sales Specialist, Joe Erb, will also be flying in from the US to give a daily seminar.

With a quarter of a century of fenestration sector expertise under his belt, Joe is chairman of America’s Insulating Glass Certification Council, and one of our most experienced and longest-serving employees.

He’s also a regular contributor to a number of American and Canadian glazing publications, and for more than a decade has been making technical presentations to some of the world’s largest construction, architectural and consulting firms.

Today, he takes the lead in growing Edgetech’s presence in the commercial and architectural markets.

His FIT Show presentation will focus on changing trends in the architectural sector, including the rising importance of shaped units, sustainability, and automated manufacturing.
He’ll also touch on the dramatic rise of traditionally commercial products in the residential sector, like bifold and wide-span patio doors.

What’s more, on the Tuesday night, we’ll mark Super Spacer’s 30th anniversary with a party at our stand!

It’s a chance to celebrate the market leadership that led us to launch the world’s first foam warm edge spacer – and the continuing commitment to evolution that’s fuelled the development of our latest product.

But as well as taking the opportunity to celebrate Super Spacer’s astounding success over three decades with friends throughout the industry, we’ll be introducing customers to our new e-commerce and technical support systems too as part of our digital transformation.

All in all, it’s shaping up to be our most memorable FIT Show yet – and we hope to see as many of you as possible at stand C24 in May!
