Products of 2013 December 2013 41 TruPlas rigid spacer bar Shutter shapes from Universal Don’t worry be ‘appy! Edgetech has launched the TruPlas rigid spacer, further extending the WET supplier’s range. Andy Jones, managing director of Edgetech, said: “The new composite warm edge tubular spacer is compatible with all secondary sealant types with butyl primary seal, and features our tried and tested true vapour barrier. Available with standard or gas filled corner keys, the product has passed EN1279 Parts 2, 3 and 6. “Significantly, it can be processed with standard equipment and requires no investment in specialist machinery – just a visit from our technical team. For high volume production we also have machinery that automates manufacture by bending the spacer.” www.edgetechig.co.uk Universal Arches has jointly developed what is believed to be the UK’s first arched shutters with market leaders Thomas Sanderson. After several months in development and with a close working relationship, Leon Day and the team at Universal Arches have helped Thomas Sanderson launch the first arched and shaped shutters manufactured in the UK. This latest project is further evidence of Universal’s ability to work outside the typical window and door frame industry, as recent curved cable management projects with Rehau also show. www.universalarches.com Glazpart has launched a new website covering its range of products and services, including trickle vents and accessories for the window industry, tube inserts and furniture fittings for its joinery markets and an overview of its custom moulding, injection tool making and surface decoration services. Now available on the site are product summaries and technical detail by part number, as well as advice and technical information to assist in understanding often complex applications and regulations. Reynaers Hi-Finity doors Reynaers at Home’s Hi-Finity doors are structurally glazed to keep the aluminium frame to a minimum and are designed for the outer frame to be fitted behind the brickwork. With the resulting floor-to-ceiling glass and only a 35mm aluminium interlock between door panels, the Hi-Finity door delivers ‘stunning aesthetics’ with ‘no compromise’ on energy efficiency, weather resistance or security. Hugh Moss, head of Reynaers at Home, said: “The UK’s discerning homeowners and architects have fallen in love with floor-to-ceiling. Designed with this market in mind, Hi-Finity sliding doors are slim, sleek and seriously stunning, combining the ultimate in contemporary style with superb performance and low maintenance.” www.reynaers.co.uk Freefoam’s new catalogue app, suitable for smart phones and tablets, means the entire Freefoam range including fascia, soffit, rainwater, cladding and internal panelling systems is now accessible anytime, anywhere.
