Everyone’s a winner

Edgetech used the FIT Show to celebrate 30 years of Super Spacer and introduce an new rigid spacer bar.

At the company’s stand, located in the event’s dedicated Visit Glass area, people from across the industry gathered to mark the 30th anniversary of Super Spacer. After a brief birthday presentation from managing director Chris Alderson, the assembled guests were then introduced to the company’s latest innovation.

Edgetherm RS is a rigid spacer designed to eradicate the PIB migration problems that commonly spoil the looks of many aging IGUs, the company said.

Designed and tested in Coventry by technical development manager Gary Shoesmith, the product’s design offers “enhanced productivity, durability, thermal performance and aesthetics”.

After the product launch was over, 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 commercial projects manager, flew in from America to give daily seminars on the changing landscape of architectural glass specification.

Edgetech was also joined by Inagas, which demonstrated its range of 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,” MD Chris Alderson said.

“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.”
