Following its acquisition of Edgetech earlier this year, Quanex Building Products Corporation (NYSE:NX), a global supplier of insulating glass components, extrusions and fenestration products, will debut its innovative lineup of products and services at GlassBuild 2011, Sept. 12-14, in Atlanta. In the past year, the company has strategically aligned Mikron, Truseal Technologies, Homeshield and of course Edgetech I.G. with the goal of helping to drive the industry and its customers forward through high-performance products, creative marketing support, technical services and the expertise necessary to help customers grow their businesses in the competitive marketplace.
“GlassBuild will be an exciting event for Quanex Building Products and our customers,” said Mike Hovan, senior vice president, sales and marketing for the Quanex Engineered Products Group. “Our companies and our customers represent the best in the industry in terms of technical expertise, operational excellence and energy efficiency. We look forward to bringing all of this knowledge together for networking, sharing of best practices and, of course, a little fun.”
Subject-matter experts will be on-hand at Quanex’s GlassBuild stand 415 to discuss challenges and opportunities currently affecting window companies. The stand will also feature integrated high-performance window and door systems, including energy-efficient IG components, extrusions and fenestration components from Quanex companies, including:
- MikronWood™ next generation composite material, which boasts the beauty of wood with the weather-resistant, no-maintenance advantages of PVC or fiberglass. MikronWood also offers superior resistance to thermal conductivity with k-values that are 63 percent better than wood and 83 percent better than fiberglass.
- EnergyCore™ frame and Duralite™ spacer window system which, in combination, reduce thermal conductivity by up to 45 percent and achieve R-5 with a triple-pane glass configuration. This performance is achieved by eliminating metal and replacing more than 60 percent of the spacer profile with air space. New additions to the EnergyCore product line will also be introduced at GlassBuild, including single-hung and slider options.
- Super Spacer® dual-seal warm edge spacer systems that are backed by more than 20 years of field performance in commercial and residential applications worldwide. The all-foam construction of Super Spacer products provides superior thermal performance, condensation resistance and long-term durability.
- ImperiClad™ moisture-impervious door frame system with MikronWood™ that includes a water-shedding threshold with unique energy-efficient, weather-stripped jambs.
