Both Thermobar (for use in gas filled units) and Thermobar LITE (for use in air filled units) are available in the new sizes and in black, grey and white and will be sold in 5m lengths in box quantities of 150m and 125m respectively. The Group’s Sales Director Mark Hickox comments: “Triple glazing is a new sales opportunity that some of our customers are exploring and in doing so, have requested their preferred warm edge choice – Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer Tube.We know that customers are looking to buy new sizes in smaller volumes and so we have developed the packaging to suit. We intend to continue to talk to our customers to develop our warm edge product range to meet their changing requirements.”
Thermobar is the preferred choice of many sealed unit manufacturers because of its handling advantages: It can be stapled without cracking and breaking easily; There are no issues with hot melt bubbling on the edges of units due to inefficient breather holes in the spacer; It requires no costly investment in machinery; It is safe and easy to saw without the safety requirement for air extraction; the price is very competitive; it can be inkjet-printed for free; and it can also be supplied with pre-applied with PIB tape. As well as all these advantages, it is manufactured in the UK by a British company, Thermoseal Group, which has been operating within the UK window industry for over thirty years.
As with the other available sizes of Thermobar, the narrower bars are fully exchangeable within current Window Energy Ratings for any other warm edge spacer tube.
Thermobar (with gas barrier tape) and Thermobar LITE warm edge spacer tube is now available in black, grey and white in a wide range of sizes including: 19.5mm, 17.5mm, 15.5mm, 13.5mm, 11.5mm, 9.5mm, 7.5mm and 4mm. Keys and Georgian fittings are also available to suit.
