GLASS&SEALEDUNITS Expansion Meets Customer Requirements »»Thermoseal Group announces further manufacturing expansion to meet the requirements of a continued increase in demand for Thermobar and Thermoflex warm edge spacers and accessories. Group Sales Director, Mark Hickox discusses the company’s growth: “Thermoflex sales are up by over a 1000% and demand for the product is seeing continual growth as customers try the product. “Thermobar and Thermoflex warm edge spacers have been subject to our rigorous in-house testing facilities before they are submitted for external testing. Both products have passed relevant EN1279 tests and have also been tested to many other international standards. “We have invested massively in our innovation centre and EN1279 test facilities to ensure that we understand the conditions within a glazing unit and how each component performs within the lifetime of the unit. Our recent investment in three additional Thermobar production lines and an additional Thermoflex line is testament to our confidence in our products.” To download the latest BF data sheet, visit www. bundesverband-flachglas.de For more information visit www.thermosealgroup.com glazing or call +44(0)121 331 3950 Keeping Things Timeless Saint-Gobain Glass has launched SGG TIMELESS, a highly advanced glass for shower panels and bath screens with longer lasting clarity and easy cleaning. »»SGG TIMELESS not only offers high performance and superb neutral transparency but its specially developed micro-coating means water slips off its surface, repelling limescale and keeping the shine, as well as drastically cutting cleaning time. SGG TIMELESS is also covered by a ten-year warranty for its anti-corrosion qualities.
