GLASS&SEALEDUNITS EXCEEDING EXPECTATIOINS ONCE AGAIN » » THERE IS NO STOPPING TUFFX Processed Glass when it comes to supplying glass for stunning designs and creations. They are always surprising cilents when jobs are installed by how striking the glass is. Most recently, TuffX’s processed department secured a job for a regular installer in North Wales when they requested glass for the outside of a beach front holiday home in Pwllheli. The homeowners wanted to differentiate their home from thier neighbours and give it a modern finish. TuffX suggested to the cilents that they purchase a total of 135m2 of Toughened- Laminated glass. The cilents opted for 45m² of 15mm Toughened-Laminated glass for the staircase and 90m² of 21.5mm Toughened- Laminated for the surrounding balcony. The homeowner was very happy with the finished product, stating, “Our holiday home is just how we pictured it. We can’t thank both our installers and TuffX enough for everything; it really gives our home the finishing touch we desired.” TuffX manufactures its toughened laminated glass in-house on state-of-the- art machinery to meet all current industry standards. It can manufacture the glass from 4mm to 19mm and up to a maximum size of 4000mm x 2200mm. Offering A-Rated as Standard » » HOME IMPROVEMENT AND glazing specialist EYG has made significant investment to double production of insulated glass units with the support of Edgetech UK. EYG has invested £500,000 in a new high-speed Forel insulated glass line at its Hull-based manufacturing facility. It can now produce a double glazed unit made with Super Spacer® every 35 seconds. This has enabled the company to offer ‘A’ energy rated windows as standard on all double glazing installations. John Waugh, Retail Sales Director at EYG, said: “The support we’ve had from Edgetech has been first class. “We turned to them because they have been the leaders in developing energy efficient glazing systems over many years, and they helped us every step of the way, from guidance on machinery solutions right through to the first Super Spacer units rolling off the line. “The team from Edgetech spent a lot of time with us ensuring we got up and running and producing our new improved windows without any issues. Their support and training was invaluable to us as the machinery, and the process of setting the glass in place, was different to what we had done before.” CELEBRATING A YEAR OF GROWTH » » MORLEY GLASS & Glazing is celebrating a successful start to 2017 following an exciting 12 months.
