Since the initial introduction of Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer in 2010, Thermoseal Group has been continually expanding its highest performance spacer range to add new products and to develop its selection of bespoke colour-matched fittings. The full range now includes 338 products manufactured both in the Group’s own continually-expanding spacer bar production facility and by its injection moulding division, which now produces over 10 million mouldings per year.
“We have seen a continual increase in demand for Thermobar Warm Edge Spacers and now supply to customers in 27 countries across 5 continents” says the Group’s Sales Director, Mark Hickox, “As a result, we have been expanding our spacer bar production facilities to ensure we can manufacture a broad range of sizes and can colour-match our products to suit. Our Injection Moulding Division has also seen continued investment to develop a broad range of fittings to meet our customers’ diverse requirements.
“The rapid development of our multi-pane window components has been spurred on by changes in legislation across Europe where internal components such as Georgian bar and Interbar and Duplex Systems can now result in Window U-value penalties. Our Thermobar Interbar has been developed using lowest conductivity material to complement our Thermobar range as a replacement for traditional Aluminium more conductive options.
“As a business, we have the advantage of being large enough to manufacture our own products but small enough to react quickly to market demands without the constraints of being controlled by a parent company. As a result, our latest production addition is a dedicated extrusion line for the manufacture of the expanding range of Thermobar Interbar we offer. We have also now added a recycling plant to help reduce our carbon footprint.”
Thermobar Warm Edge Spacers and all accessories are fully tested in the Group’s own Technical Centre before being fully tried and tested in IG sealed unit production. Thermobar and Thermoseal Group’s other highest performance warm edge spacer, Thermoflex, are amongst the highest rated in the marketplace.
