Edgetech UK customer Direct Window Co, which recently launched its BFRC ‘C’ rated window, has installed a fully automated For.El line to increase capacity. “We’ve been using Edgetech’s Super Spacer® for five years, for difficulty applications such as arched units,” says Craig Goss, Owner of Blackpool-based Direct Window Co. “But now all our windows will use its advanced warm edge technology.
“The For.El line should increase production from 1,200-1,500 sealed units a week to 3,500-4,000. Edgetech is also training four of operatives for hand-held applications for intricate work, so we can cater for every customer’s needs. Edgetech has helped us every step of the way – with the ‘C’ rating and use of the new machinery. We’re also planning to target the conservatory market too, with Super Spacer glass roof units.”
Craig continues: “We’re offering our C rated windows at the same price as before. So our customers get a higher quality window that’s ahead of building regulations, and an even more efficient service too thanks to the new machinery.
