Edgetech ‘a part of something bigger’ at Glasstec

Edgetech has reported a ‘highly successful’ visit to this year’s Glasstec exhibition in Germany, an event that provided the opportunity to showcase one of its recent innovations, Super Spacer T-Spacer SG.

The flexible T-shaped spacer, which is made from silicone foam, has been designed to offer highly efficient automated processing and application, increasing productivity for large format glass units.

The product is also said to offer excellent condensation resistance, shape retention and colour stability, as well as ‘first-class’ thermal conductivity.

According to Edgetech, Glasstec provided the perfect venue to promote T-Spacer SG, which is already widely used on ambitious commercial glazing projects throughout Europe.

Edgetech’s head of marketing, Charlotte Hawkes, commented: “It was a brilliant show – our stand was genuinely busy from start to finish, and there was standing room only a lot of the time.

“One theme that repeatedly came up was labour shortages, and we spoke to a large number of IGU manufacturers interested in adopting automation as a way of tackling them.

“It was also the first opportunity we’ve had to reveal our new branding to the European market – given the global audience at the show, ‘A part of something bigger’ felt especially fitting!

“In general, there was a great atmosphere. You really got the sense everyone was happy to be back together.”
