Brian McDonald, Commercial Manager at Global Glass explains: “we’ve been manufacturing units incorporating Super Spacer for almost 2 years now and have seen dramatic growth in both customer demand and sales of warm edge IGUs. As a result, we forecast the trend continuing and 100% of our IGU production to incorporate WET within 5 years. With that in mind we identified TruPlas as the ideal solution for our expansion as it offers all the benefits of a high performing warm edge spacer bar backed up by the support and customer service we’ve come to rely on from Edgetech. We are committed to achieving optimum performance and customer satisfaction so we decided to embrace this change and invest in new machinery and technology to offer our customers the highest quality warm edge sealed units.
Since we began to manufacture sealed units at Synseal we have developed a solid relationship with Edgetech so we are pleased to support the latest technology and continue our investment on behalf of our customers using the TruPlas product from our trusted business partner. The manufacturing principles at Global Glass are to build-in quality at every stage and continually improve quality standards. Edgetech has proven that they share these brand values and so are ideally placed as the WET supplier who will help take our IGU business to the next level.”
Andy Jones, Managing Director at Edgetech comments: “We are delighted to further strengthen our relationship with Global Glass as they look to develop their warm edge offering. As two market leaders in the industry, the brand association will benefit us both and we look forward to supporting Synseal in this new investment. We always strive to listen to customers when developing our products and we worked directly with the Global Glass team when designing the TruPlas product. As a result, the tubular spacer has been structurally designed for increased stability and strength, which makes cutting and assembly easier and features our tried and tested true vapour barrier and advanced acrylic adhesive which strengthens under heat, so customers don’t need to be concerned about de-lamination. The product has passed EN1279 Parts 2, 3 and 6 and can be processed with standard equipment.
“We take our manufacturing quality very seriously as we understand that the reliability of supply is key to our customers and we are pleased that this is recognized by like-minded companies such as Global Glass. Together we can ensure that the products we supply continually improve as we strive to meet the increasing demands for warm edge technology.”
