Warm Comfortable Homes Video to Showcase Warm Edge Technology Worldwide

Leading UK insulated glass (IG) component manufacturer, Thermoseal Group, has launched its ‘Warm Comfortable Home’ video in 7 different languages showcasing the benefits of warm edge technology. ‘Warm Comfortable Home’ is now available in: English and German; and subtitled versions in French, Spanish, Italian, Polish and Chinese Mandarin. Watch all versions now at http://www.thermosealgroup.com/news.

The ‘Warm Comfortable Home’ video was released in English in the UK earlier this year to promote the benefits of high performance, energy-efficient warm edge windows to homeowners – namely windows with IG sealed units incorporating Thermoseal Group’s own Thermobar (rigid tube spacer made with engineering plastic) and Thermoflex (flexible silicone foam spacer system) warm edge spacers. The video is of interest to anybody looking to maximise the thermal efficiency of their windows and is offered as a promotional tool to be used throughout the Thermobar and Thermoflex worldwide supply chain.  

Thermoseal Group has seen a 95% increase in export business in 2015 and a further 100% growth is anticipated for 2016. Thermobar and Thermoflex warm edge spacer bars are subject to continual developments to suit the international marketplace and various new products are set to be released over the coming months. The Group now supplies in 22 countries in: Europe; Asia; Australia and Oceania; North America and South America.

“In the past year we have invested in further equipment to increase our warm edge production capacity by over 250%”, explains Samantha Hill, Marketing Manager of Thermoseal Group “we have also employed an additional 30% more staff, who are using bespoke equipment and methods. It is for this reason that we have only recently started to attack export markets with some force”.

 “The ‘Warm Comfortable Home’ video is our visual introduction to warm edge technology. It commences in a family home where homeowners are calculating their energy bills.  It then showcases Thermobar and Thermoflex by zooming into a simulated home and through clever graphics it deconstructs a window down to the spacer bar within the glazing unit where the highest performance figures of these spacers are detailed. 

“Thermobar has a Bundesverband Flachglas (BF) thermal conductivity value of 0.14W/mK and Thermoflex 0.135W/mK. Both spacers achieve Passive House Institute ratings of phA+ and have BF data sheets for facades.

“See us at the Glasstec Trade Fair in Düsseldorf from the 20-23 September where all versions of our ‘Warm Comfortable Home’ video will be on display on stand B15, Hall 17.”

Thermoseal Group masts the UK flag for British Products!

Thermoseal Group introduced its highest performance, passive house approved warm edge spacers and award winning product and service offerings at China Glass in Shanghai (11-14th April) while simultaneously showcasing its UK industry-leading products at the Fit Show Exhibition in Telford from 12-14th April 2016.  Both exhibitions were a great success and provided a multitude of enquiries for the Group’s sales team to follow up.

As the UK’s industry-leading warm edge spacer manufacturer and supplier of over 1,500 insulated glass (IG) components, as well as a range of machinery, Thermoseal Group has been increasing production volume of its warm edge spacer systems and bespoke accessories to supply further afield.  This has led to its recent exhibition attendance at many international shows leading to export of its British warm edge products to customers across the globe. 

The Group’s sales director, Mark Hickox who attended the China Glass exhibition in Shanghai, told us:  “China Glass was a great International platform for us to formally introduce our products to the Asian and Australasian market. The show attracted large numbers of potential customers not just from China but across the globe – we made contacts from as far and wide as: Australia; Dubai; Korea; even some in Europe including: Italy, Turkey; and then across the globe to the USA and Columbia.

“Exciting times are ahead for Thermoseal Group with the increased production and infrastructure capabilities we have at our disposal to take our premium products further into the international marketplace – next destination will be Dusseldorf and then Las Vegas.”

Samantha Hill, the Group’s Marketing Manager who was in attendance at The Fit Show in Telford, said: “The Fit Show was an extremely busy exhibition which managed to gridlock the traffic through Telford on the first and second day of the show.  We had a prime position within the innovation zone and right next to the only bar so we saw continual traffic to our stand throughout the event. 

“We see many of our customers at this event but were essentially there to ensure that Fabricators and Installers see our industry-leading products and the full service back-up that we provide to our customers and throughout the supply chain.  Our UK-manufactured warm edge spacers - Thermobar and Thermoflex - are industry-leading products within the UK market providing best thermal efficiency and come with a range of bespoke accessories for solid construction of sealed units and with multipane window options.  The response was very positive and we have a large number of enquiries to contact after the show.”

Thermoseal Group has over 35 years’ experience supplying to IG manufacturers and is the 2015 winner of two UK Glass and Glazing Industry G-Awards including Component Supplier of the Year and Training and Development Initiative of the Year. The Group has made a large private investment into the manufacturing and development of its own components, and all products supplied are quality tested by the Group’s innovation centre. The Group also has its own EN1279 test centre to make and test its own IG units to European standards and beyond.  This ensures an understanding of how each component performs within the lifetime of the unit.

Simulate Multipane Windows in Triple Glazing with New Thermobar Interbar

Thermoseal Group, the UK’s leading manufacturer of warm edge spacers and accessories is soon to add a 6mm x 18mm Interbar (Muntin) and fittings to its current Thermobar Interbar range. This new narrow profile is designed to simulate traditional multipane windows in high-performance triple glazed solutions.  

Thermobar Interbar has been developed by the Group’s own innovation centre with a bespoke engineering plastic to complement its 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 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.

The look of multipane windows can also be simulated using Thermoseal Group’s Thermobar Duplex system, differing to Interbar in that its specially designed keys make use of standard Thermobar spacer bar.

“The Thermobar range is amongst the highest rated in the market”, says Mark Hickox, Sales Director for Thermoseal Group. “Not only is it A+ Passive House approved and achieves a highest thermal efficiency value of 0.14W/mK as certified by Bundesverband Flachglas data, it is also comes with a wide range of bespoke accessories which we colour-match to suit. 

“Thermobar Interbar has been particularly well received in the market and customers are now requesting further sizes.  Therefore, following the addition of 6mm x 18mm Interbar we will add 11.5mm x 22mm and 15.5mm x 22mm sizes in the near future with fittings for use in both Thermoflex and Thermobar.

“We are extremely proud of our Thermobar and Thermoflex range of warm edge spacers and are committed in continuing to develop and expand our portfolio of thermally efficient products to futureproof our components and meet the continued demand for improved performance. We look forward to showing further new products over the coming months.”

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 colour-matched Gas Collars and Plugs; Thermobar Interbar and Fittings; Duplex fittings.

For further information about Thermobar, Thermoflex or any of our range of over 1,500 IG components and machinery for glazing manufacture, call +44(0)121 331 3950 or email sales@thermosealgroup.com.

NEW Chartwell Green and Anthracite Grey Georgian Bar & Accessories

Thermoseal Group, the UK’s leading manufacturer of warm edge spacers and supplier of over 1,500 insulated glass (IG) components has added to its broad range of Georgian Bar and Accessories with its new Chartwell Green and Anthracite Grey products.

Whilst the Group can colour-match its Georgian bar and in-house manufactured accessories on request, customer feedback identified that these new colours are now a regular requirement.  Therefore, both colours are now in stock in a woodgrain finish in its 18x8mm and 25x8mm most popular sizes.  Bi-colour bar is also available in both colours for use in conjunction with the Group’s own design of Combi-Cross mix-and-match Georgian centre keys.

The Combi-Cross is sold as half crosses which are clipped together.  Either two halves of the same colour can be joined, or one half of one colour and another half of another colour can be clipped together in the same way.  This means that sealed unit manufacturers can stock a small amount of the colours and sizes of Combi-Cross that are rarely used and stock-up on the standard white or cream halves that are used often.  

The Group’s Sales Director Mark Hickox, tells us:  “We are always proud to introduce new products, but adding to the range and finish of the Combi-Cross is particularly great for us because this product was developed in-house as a cost-effective solution for customers who supply a range of full colour and bi-colour products.  It is also colour-matched by our own injection moulding department.

“Our injection moulding facilities, quality control processes and general manufacturing expertise have massively expanded since we began to manufacture Thermobar and Thermoflex warm edge spacers and accessories. This development is directly the result of using our traditional strategy of listening to our customers and developing our products to suit the people using them.  Our Georgian offering has always worked this way, but our experience means that we can now develop and introduce new products at a much faster pace.  We look forward to hearing more feedback so we can continue to develop our premium product range.” 

Thermoseal Group’s Georgian bar is supplied in boxes of 240m for 18x8mm and 150m for 25x8mm.  All are boxed in 3m lengths. Combi-Crosses are supplied in boxes of 200 half crosses. Full range catalogues are downloadable on the Group’s website:  http://www.thermosealgroup.com/relateddownload/category.

Watch the New ‘Warm Comfortable Home’ Video from Thermoseal Group

Thermoseal Group, the UK’s leading manufacturer of warm edge spacers and supplier of over 1,500 insulated glass (IG) components has launched a public video to showcase the advantages of its highest performance Thermobar and Thermoflex warm edge spacers to homeowners.  Watch the ‘Warm Comfortable Home’ video now at: http://www.thermosealgroup.com/news/details/154/watch-our-new-warm-comfortable-homes-video

Introducing the benefits of Thermobar and Thermoflex warm edge spacers, the video commences within a warm comfortable home with a family calculating their energy bills.  It then showcases Thermobar and Thermoflex by zooming into a simulated home and through clever graphics it deconstructs a window down to the spacer bar within the glazing unit. 

Quoting figures such as “Up to 80% of energy loss through a window occurs at its edge” and “Warm edge glazing is up to 65% warmer at the edge than traditional windows” the video tells homeowners about the real issues relating to poorly insulated windows and how Thermobar and Thermoflex help to minimise the energy loss through the edge of window glazing to keep the heat in or out of a building as required.   Warm Edge spacers also help to minimise condensation and mould. 

Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer is a rigid tube spacer system made with engineering plastic with a gas barrier tape.  It has a thermal conductivity value of 0.14W/mK and achieves a Passive House rating of phA for Arctic Climates (phA+ with hot melt secondary sealant).  Thermoflex Warm Edge Spacer is a flexible rubber spacer system with gas barrier tape.  Its value is 0.135W/mK and similarly achieves a phA+ rating.

Thermoseal Group’s marketing manager, Samantha Hill tells us:  “We are delighted to finally launch our Warm Comfortable Home Video to showcase the advantages of our highest performance UK-manufactured spacer systems - Thermobar and Thermoflex.  With our focus on export, the video will also shortly be available in multilingual versions for customers to use to showcase the products worldwide. 

“This video is part of a range of promotional tools that we are due to launch for window installers to use to promote the advantages of windows incorporating Thermobar and Thermoflex warm edge spacers.  We are excited to see the growth in demand of our products and now our spacer bar production sites have a large additional capacity, we are ready to tell the world why our products are best in the worldwide industry.”

Leading UK-manufactured spacer specified in the UK’s first-ever BFRC A++ Rating for a vertical slider achieving U-value 1.0 W/m²K

Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer Tube from UK leading warm edge spacer manufacturer and supplier of over 1,500 insulated glass (IG) components - Thermoseal Group, has been specified by specialist trade fabricator, Dungannon Window Company Limited and subsequently awarded the UK’s first-ever BFRC A++ rating for a PVC-U Vertical Slider.  This system has also achieved the lowest ever U-Value for the style at 1.0 W/m²K.

The new Eurosash superior triple 1.0 PVC-U window is triple glazed and utilises highest performance Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer in combination with Krypton gas.  The achievement means that the ever-more popular vertical slider style can now be used without compromising energy efficiency, and the low U-Value will even allow the window to be used in Passive House buildings.

The outstanding thermal performance of Thermobar means it is ideal for achieving the best energy ratings in all types of window systems. It has a Bundesverband Flachglas thermal value of 0.14 W/mK and is Passive House approved and rated phA+ when used in conjunction with hot melt secondary sealant.

Thermoseal Group – Exceeding the requirements for Investors in People

Thermoseal Group, the UK’s leading manufacturer of warm edge spacer systems and supplier to the insulated glass (IG) industry for over 35 years has again achieved its Investors in People (IIP) accreditation by exceeding requirements of its recent assessment.  The Group has been IIP accredited for over 15 years.

Since 1991 IIP has set the standard for better people management. This internationally recognised accreditation is held by 14,000 organisations across the world. The Standard defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results.

Thermoseal Group’s recent assessment saw the Group pass the standard with flying colours and achieve additional evidence requirements for: ‘Leadership and management strategy’; ‘Flexible approach to learning and development’; ‘Sharing knowledge and learning across the business; ‘Supporting people in their personal development; ‘Providing opportunities for mentoring’ and ‘Involving employees in improving how they are managed and developed’.  The assessment process showed good evidence that people are a valued asset to the business.
 
Thermoseal Group’s Managing Director, Gwain Paterson commented:  “Many of our staff have been working at Thermoseal Group for over 10 years - some for 20-plus years.  However, in the past few years since we have been manufacturing warm edge spacer systems and growing the infrastructure of the business in line with this, we have seen an influx of new staff.  The Investors in People accreditation has been an excellent framework for us to ensure that we keep our focus on providing our staff with the training and development that they need.  We intend to continue striving to meet and exceed the requirements of this accreditation.

“The renewed IIP status is another win for us and we are now looking to display our latest plaque in a cabinet with our prided G15 awards for ‘Component Supplier of the Year’ and ‘Training and Development Initiative of the Year’, as well as other industry standards and accreditations we have achieved.  It is with thanks to the dedication of the Thermoseal Group team that we continue to grow and improve our product and service offering.   Thank you to everyone working as part of our team.”

A WIN WIN for Thermoseal Group at the G15 Awards

Thermoseal Group, the UK’s leading manufacturer of warm edge spacer systems and supplier to the insulated glass (IG) industry for over 35 years was announced winner in two categories at the Glass and Glazing Industry’s prestigious G15 Awards event at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Friday 27th November 2015– ‘Component Supplier of the Year’ and ‘Training and Development Initiative of the Year’.

The ‘Component Supplier of the Year’ G-Award is a coveted award by suppliers within the glass and glazing industry and an award that Thermoseal Group has achieved ‘Finalist’ in for several years in a row.  This was the first time the Group entered in for the ‘Training and Development Initiative of the Year’.

Thermoseal Group’s Managing Director, Gwain Paterson commented:  “I am absolutely delighted to have achieved both of these awards and am particularly pleased that the hard work and dedication of the whole Thermoseal Group team has been recognised in both of these categories.  As a leading component supplier to insulated glass manufacturers, this award is ideal for us and we will be sure to publicise our win as a mark of the high quality of the products and service that we supply to our customers.

“The ‘Training and Development Initiative of the Year’ award is testament to our spacer bar manufacturing sites in Wigan where we have built a bespoke operation which has required a strong emphasis on training and development to ensure the high quality of our products.  At these sites, we operate a Kaizen method of lean manufacturing where every single member of our teams have either completed or are currently enrolled in external training courses.  All staff are also part of a mentoring system.  Our dedication to training has had a real impact on productivity and reduced wastage.

“The G-Awards is always a fantastic event for us as we have sponsored the champagne reception for many years.  This gives us a great opportunity to raise a glass with our customers and thank those attending the event for their custom.

“Thank you to Tony Higgin and all of the G-Awards team for organising a fantastic event and a big thank you to all of the Thermoseal Group team for contributing to our G15 award wins.  Thanks also to our customers who have contributed to our growth and development over the years.”
