Glazerite is adding the Halo Flush Sash to its offering of Timberweld butt joint effect welded frames.
The move, which makes the fabricator the first to offer Timberweld on the Halo system, follows its introduction of the corner technology on its Residence 9 and Residence 7 products earlier this year.
Operations Director Ian Lloyd, for Glazerite said: “Timberweld technology gives us greater flexibility and efficiencies in the manufacture and transport of frames, as windows can be ordered unglazed in both R9 and R7. It also allows for greater throughput of the products, and consistency in their finish. We are now manufacturing both R9 and R7 with a Timberweld sash and a mechanically jointed outerframe, mullion and transom, and we’re really pleased with the results so far.”
The £80,000 investment in Timberweld equipment, which includes new end millers, cutter sets and a specially adapted welder, was installed by Rugby-based Total Machinery Solutions (TMS) at Glazerite’s heritage-focused Specials Division in Wellingborough.
Glazerite CEO, Jason Thompson added: “Flush sash products are showing considerable growth and have massive potential going forward. Despite the current economic climate, we feel Timberweld has been an important part of our recent expenditure as it allows us to broaden our offering to installer partners and equip them with the premium products they need to win business.”
