GLASSTECPREVIEW Set to paint the town Glasstec, stand C50 in Hall 10 »»REGALEAD WILL BE painting the town this month as it takes its specialist paint range of decorative coatings for glass, including some brand new additions, to Dusseldorf for Glasstec 2016. Stand C50 in Hall 10 will be dedicated to the company’s ColourSpray backpainted glass solutions, a range that underpins RegaLead’s position as the largest supplier of this kind of coating technology in Europe. Guy Hubble, Joint Managing Director of RegaLead, explains: “Although not everyone knows it, coatings have been a core market for us for a long time. In fact, we launched our own resin based paint system back in December 2009. For the first time, glass companies had an easy-to-use, mix on demand solution for painting glass and the ability to create any Ral, Pantone, NCS or BS colour thanks to the range of 19 base colourants.This original ColourSpray Resin is now used by over 350 companies globally and makes us one of the world’s largest specialist glass coatings provider. “Glasstec 2016 will be the venue for another industry first from RegaLead as we officially launch two new systems within the ColorSpray glass coating range: ColorSpray Aqua (water based solution) and ColorSpray Ceramix (ceramic based coating ideal for architectural applications).These new formulations offer customers the same ‘colour control’, flexibility, speed and consistency as the resin paint system and will further expand the ‘in-house’ glass painting market. In parallel to these new formulations and automation, we’ve also extended our colour matching service. Thanks to the continual updating of our ColorSpray Formulator, unique colours can be matched within 24 hours. “When it comes to application, we’ve got that covered too and visitors to our stand will see the new compact auto dispenser, and a world-first, the unique FastFire Compact Infra-Red Drying system, which has been developed specifically for glass painting applications and can work either as a stand-alone for companies who want to hand spray or as an in-line automated solution.The electric medium wave IR system cuts curing time on water based paints by over 90%.” www.regalead.co.uk SHOWCASING INNOVATION GLASSTEC, HALL 10, STANDS A50 AND B50 For the third time, CRL will showcase its large range of glass hardware and accessories at Glasstec. Over 250sqm CRL will not only display its bestselling shower door hardware, architectural metals and glazing accessories but also several innovative products such as the new 9BL Series Base Shoe for TAPER-LOC® frameless glass balustrade system and new Oil Dynamic Hinges for glass doors. 9BL SERIES ALUMINIUM BASE SHOE CRL new 9BL Series Aluminium Base Shoe is suitable with 17.52 and 21.52mm laminated toughened glass and has been developed for use with the popular TAPER-LOC® railing system. Its innovative extruded structure makes it 30% lighter than the standard base shoe, which reduces shipping and construction costs. The base shoe is available in satin anodised and brushed nickel and doesn’t require any cladding. For those who prefer a mill base shoe it can be clad in six standard architectural finishes. Designed and engineered to meet new IBC revisions, it also conforms to BS 6180:2011 standards and is the only laminated system pursuing ICCES approval. OIL DYNAMIC HINGES FOR SELF-CLOSING GLASS DOORS CRL new Oil Dynamic Hinges for self-closing glass doors have adjustable closing speed and offer a great alternative to floor closers and patch fittings with their ability to swing in and out a full 90 degrees and stop at 0, +90 and -90 degrees. They are suitable for glass panels from 8 to 13.52mm in thickness and can accommodate doors weighing up to 100kg. This extensive range of hinges is available in Satin Nickel, Satin Anodised and Chrome finishes. It also includes a nohold open option and a high humidity resistance in damp environments. TAPER-LOC® TAPER-LOC® is a popular, unique frameless glass balustrade system introduced a few year ago to the market. It offers a simple and fast way to secure glass panels in aluminium base shoes without any wet cement or sealants. It allows an installation time that is reduced by up to 50% (compared to usual alternatives) while still exceeding code standards. Offering flexibility and control for accurate installation, it makes replacing scratched or broken panels effortless. The unique horizontal TAPER-LOC® design allows the system to be adjusted, dismantled and re-set with CRL’s exclusive TLK12 Installation/Removal Tool. www.crlaurence.fr C L E A RV I E W-U K .
