New Heritage Thermobar Interbar for Multipane Windows

We have added a new 6mm x 18mm Black Thermobar Interbar (Muntin) and fittings to our range of specialist bar designed to simulate traditional Multipane windows. This slim profile bar is now in stock for UK nationwide delivery and is ideal for use in heritage double glazing units and also high performance slim triple glazing units which are now more popular in New-Build Housing.

Thermobar Interbar has been developed by our own innovation centre with a bespoke engineering plastic to complement the Thermobar and Thermoflex warm edge spacer ranges and offer a superior thermal efficiency than traditional aluminium systems.

Interbar is a rectangular profile bar with accompanying centre and edge keys and is used to construct a framework to be integrated within an insulated glass (IG) sealed unit. Other sizes of Thermobar Interbar include 11.5mm x 18mm and 15.5mm x 18mm and are available in black, grey and white.

This Interbar framework is to be encapsulated in an IG unit and a Surface Mount Georgian bar is placed in position on the surface of the glass. Within the window, Thermobar Interbar appears like two spacer bars back-to-back to simulate the aesthetic of traditional multipane windows.

Our Group Sales Director, Mark Hickox, told us: “Since we announced that we will soon have a 6x18mm Thermobar Interbar, we have been inundated with enquiries as to when the product will be available to the market. It’s always good for a manufacturer to have a waiting list for a new product as it gives us an idea of initial volumes we need to make to meet customer demand.

“It was our intention to manufacture black, grey and white before we announced that we have stocks, but the demand has pushed the launch of black bar forward. Grey and White will be in stock shortly.

“Please note that also due to customer demand, we are currently developing 11.5x22mm and 15.5x22mm Interbar and fittings which will be available in the near future.

“It always gives me great pride to say that the Thermobar and Thermoflex range of products are among the highest rated in the market. With Bundesverband Flachglas thermal values of 0.14W/mK and 0.135W/mK respectively, both products achieve a Passive House Institute phA+ rating and we offer an expanding range of bespoke colour-matched accessories and equipment to ensure that they meet the requirements of most modern manufacturing methods.

“Part of our broad range of Thermobar fittings is our Duplex keys which can also be used to simulate multipane windows, differing to Interbar in that the specially designed crosses and edge keys make use of standard Thermobar spacer bar.”

The Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer range includes: Thermobar spacer tubes in black, grey and white - 4mm bar is also available in black; bespoke colour-matched Corner Keys in compatible sizes; Flexi Keys; Straight Connectors; Gas Corner Keys (with and without hole); a range of Gas Collars and Plugs; Thermobar Interbar and Fittings; Duplex fittings.

J.v.G. Thoma GmbH is delivering a DESERT turnkey production line to Brazil, the first of its kind and hopefully the first in many breakthroughs to leave the factory floor on their way to the largest country in South America. With a capacity of 30 MW, this is a small semi-automatic DESERT production line, but still a flagship in terms of DESERT solar module production and electricity generation in the country, now fully functional and ready to start with operation.

The machinery consists of DESERT production machines for high-efficiency DESERT solar modules built specifically for extreme hot climate, such as can be seen in deserts or in tropical areas. Made solely in Germany and built using the latest in DESERT and TROPIC module production, the systems inlcudes all cutting-edge technology.

Certified DESERT solar modules, DESERT containers, DESERT power plants and DESERT manufacturing machinery built using pioneering DESERT and TROPICS technology are now fully set up, and ready to perform. But powering on the machinery has been a long time coming. Up until recently, this advanced piece of equipment had been waiting for clearance at a port in Brazil. Now that the formalities have been dealt with, both J.v.G. Thoma and its customer in Brazil can get production under way.

J.v.G. Thoma GmbH is a company whose vision has always been to harness the infinite power of the sun and convert it into an inexhaustible supply of energy. But a vision such as this requires global reach, and this project has opened new doors. Brazil is not only a gateway to South American cooperation, but also the launchpad to international reach and expansion.

Following the delivery of this initial order, J.v.G. Thoma GmbH will be looking forward to an ongoing collaboration with the Brazilian company. From setup and initial training to setting the scene for a ramp up, J.v.G. Thoma will be there to provide expertise and assistance. Moreover, the company will be jointly responsible, along with the client, for the successful integration of the DESERT solar module factory.

In the future, bigger DESERT power plants will be set up on Brazilian soil, and together with existing turnkey production systems, they intend to take up a large share of the products and assets this sector will possess locally. J.v.G. Thoma plans to build up a local network of sales agents that can extend a premium offering to neighbouring countries in South America. Eventually, the company hopes to be able to expand its customer base to clients in North America.

Hans Thoma, general manager from the Thoma-group, is eager to acquire a substantial market share in Brazil, a growing country with tremendous potential for solar energy output. Having complied with local official procedures (Inmetro, TÜV, Fraunhofer CSP) and cleared the way for future business collaboration, he expresses his hope that the solar industry will henceforth expand quickly.

”Being able to introduce Brazil to the infinite opportunities of a solar industry is a privilege for J.v.G. Thoma GmbH, and one that we are extremely grateful for. At the same time, this placed the ball squarely in our court, and the pressure to get the ball rolling quickly was high. Now that the lengthy initial formalities are out of the way, we can focus on making this project a success.“
