Oakland joins the Super Spacer million metre club

Tina Birkenshaw celebrates the Oakland’s 1 millionth metre of Super Spacer on the Edgetech Stand at Glassex

Edgetech customer of two and a half years, Oakland Glass celebrated its 1 millionth metre of Super Spacer® at Glassex. On the back of its recent CEN1279 Part 3 pass, Oakland is delighted to have achieved this latest milestone in its 21 year history.

“Oakland celebrated its 20th birthday last year, and we’d like to think we’ve had a successful business for so long because we are always looking two steps ahead,” explains Tina Birkenshaw, Sales Director of Oakland Glass. “It was almost three years ago that we started looking at Super Spacer, before the BFRC ratings had really taken off and certainly before ‘Window Energy Ratings’ was the buzz phrase for the industry. But we knew back then we would be future proofing our customers, by manufacturing our units with this innovative technology. And it’s not just about energy efficiency. Super Spacer is high performing on durability, versatility and the productivity gains are huge. That’s why we’re on our one millionth metre of Super Spacer and it’s also why we’re looking forward to the next million.”

Oakland Glass manufactures 12,500 units per week, of which approximately 50% are made with Super Spacer. Having passed parts 2 and 3 of CEN1279 before much of the market, and now offering soft coat, krypton filled units containing warm edge technology in both double and triple glazed units, Oakland truly is one of the UK’s trail blazing, independent glass processors.

“We’re delighted Oakland has achieved this important milestone,” says Edgetech UK’s Managing Director Andy Jones. “It’s been a pleasure to work closely with Oakland over the years to help its customers get the most from its high specification units. The demand Oakland is seeing for its energy efficient sealed units reflects the rapid growth in demand we’re witnessing for Super Spacer across the board - the best in warm edge technology with its wide ranging benefits.”
