GLASS&SEALEDUNITS SMARTGLASS DYNAMIC INSPIRES WITH TIME LAPSE VIDEO » » CLAYTON GLASS HAS JUST produced a time lapse video to showcase the remarkable, self-tinting SMARTGLASS® Dynamic in action, showing in just a matter of a few minutes the transformation of each individual glass pane throughout a hot summer’s day, in one of their first conservatory roof installations. This new video is posted on the SMARTGLASS® website at www.smart- glass.co.uk/products/smartglass-dynamic and at 2:39 minutes long, visually show the change in state of the conservatory roof glass from clear at either ends of the day to a dynamically darkened tint during the middle of the day, where outside temperatures touched 30 degrees in June. It can also be seen on YouTube at https://youtu.be/ AEHjNSIPd6M SMARTGLASS Ultra 86 already provides the greatest performance of any conservatory roof glass with fixed performance levels, says Clayton, yet the new Dynamic glass offers a better G-value at 10% and tint of 6% when needed during the hottest days of this summer. During the early and latter parts of the day, however, this advanced glass technology offers a 60% light transmission, approaching that of a standard IGU, along with an impressive G-value of 34%. www.smart-glass.co.uk Morley Glass & Glazing shares international industry best practice » » MORLEY GLASS & Glazing played host to a delegation from ScreenLine® integral blind systems manufacturer, Pellini SpA, in an international knowledge- sharing initiative last month. The two businesses have a long relationship of sharing best business practises, and share the ethos of design excellence combined with outstanding product quality. Morley Glass & Glazing’s Uni-Blinds® are the most popular sealed units featuring Pellini’s ScreenLine® integral blinds in the UK. Visiting from their headquarters in Codogno in northern Italy, Pellini brought with them Qfort, Romania’s largest manufacturer of uPVC windows and glass. Operating from a modern production facility, with a total area of 13.000 sqm and €200m turnover, Qfort is currently planning an expansion into the integral blinds market, and knew it would benefit from a visit to Morley Glass & Glazing. During their visit, the teams heard from Morley MD Ian Short who said: “Morley’s industry- leading 10-day delivery promise, second-to-none customer service and the sheer amount of passion and enthusiasm our staff have for providing the best possible products all play a part in what makes our business model so successful.” www.morleyglass.co.uk C L E A RV I E W-U K .
