The desiccant passage version of the straight connectors that is now available as the “RS“-model has been designed specifically for securing the frame and is made of high-strength, galvanized cold-rolled steel. It features three rows of tabs positioned at different heights along the sides to provide a secure grip within the spacer bar profile and sprung centring.
In addition, the new RS straight connector now makes it even easier to close the spacer bar after bending: as a result of the secure grip on each side, the centring and the centre crease for greater stability, closing is easier and at the same provides a connection with excellent durability and stability. “Its extremely large U shape allows the spacer bar profile to be filled with molecular sieve very quickly,“ says Ralf M. Kronenberg. “Working with our new RS straight connector is thus even more cost-effective.”
EK’s latest innovation is available for all standard aluminium bent profiles in a variety of gap widths. The new RS straight connector will be on display at the glasstec 2008 in the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre.
