An alternative solution for the Glass Bonding of IG units; All fabricators receive in-plant glazing training; New approach enabled Residence 9 to think more creatively about its product    Kommerling UK has announced that it is supplying 20 of Residence 9's fabricators with its direct glazing system.  Residence 9 is rapidly establishing itself in the market as a niche, high value PVCu window system which replicates quality timber window frames by using the latest composite materials and construction methods.Dan Gill, Managing Director of Residence 9, said; "We have been working with Kommerling for some time now and their support and know how has been vital in helping us to bring this new system to the market.  By using the Kommerling system our network of over 20 skilled fabricators are able to manufacture aesthetically pleasing windows which not only look great but also meet enhanced standards and the highest levels of thermal efficiency."The main Kommerling materials used are Kodiglaze SDG with Kommerling primers and cleaners. Les Elliott, Business Development Manager at Kommerling, explained more about the benefits of the Direct Glazing system; "By eliminating the need for steel or aluminium reinforcement within the PVCu profiles and replacing it with a bonded system, the thermal properties of each glazed unit (either double or triple) are greatly enhanced, which improves the overall window energy rating (WER).  In addition when the glass is bonded directly into the frame, there is a significant improvement in the levels of security.  The bond also reduces the amount of water which enters the window frame drainage system, resulting in improvements in both air tightness, weathering resistance and rigidity of the unit.As part of its agreement with Residence 9, Kommerling has delivered in-depth training at each of the fabricators, which has been well received.  Kommerling also provides each company with bespoke literature to help with their own sales and marketing."The work with Kommerling has developed into a real partnership and we are delighted with both the quality of the product and also the support that we and our fabricators are receiving," concludes Gill.BackgroundResidence 9 is a new window system designed to replicate the 19th Century Flush Sash Timber Window.

It can be considered for use in Conservation Areas due to its authentic appearance. This authentic design is also appealing to any homeowner who wants a top end luxury window brand.
