CENSolutions, the consultancy and test facility for the window, door and glazing industries, reports that it enjoyed a busy day on its stand at the Triple Glazing Question event, hosted by Edgetech at the Ricoh Arena.
Wayne Rogerson, joint managing director of CENSolutions, explains why the company thought it was a worthwhile day: “Edgetech hosted an excellent event at the Ricoh arena and deserve our congratulations for bringing the issue of triple glazing to the fore.
,“We have been concerned for some time that there is already a lot of misinformation in the market and we need to be very careful that, as an industry, we don’t mislead the consumer – intentionally or unintentionally. Whether it becomes common place or not, triple glazing has a place in the market but anyone getting involved in triples must understand all the variables. For example three panes of glass are not necessarily better than two – something the event highlighted very well in my opinion. Only with the correct glass combinations, cavity width and gas in cavities will things improve significantly.
,“Triples do provide the industry with a great opportunity – at the moment as a niche product for installers to upsell and make margin on. The possible erosion of this margin with free upgrades already being offered by some of the national window companies is a concern that was also highlighted on the day and one we should all work hard to overcome.
,“CENSolutions had a stand in the expert arena at the Triple Glazing Question and as the largest supplier of certification in the industry, with nothing to gain or lose if triple glazing becomes common place, we were able to offer visitors completely unbiased and accurate advice. Our stand saw a steady stream of people throughout the day that were hungry for more information about how existing market trends and future legislation will affect their businesses if triples form a part of their offering.”
