The Fenestration News Bulletin this week will be sent to more than 14,000 recipients in just over 9,000  organisations aligned to the Window Industry. Making it an effective delivery platform to get your Companies message across.


This week in short

Deceuninck: goes the extra colourful mile and continues to build momentum as the market leader for colour with the announcement that as well as holding 26 colourways in stock for profile, it also holds the same number of colours in stock, for matching trims, ancillaries and cills.

Pilkington: a glazing technology revolution is just around the corner and it will transform how buildings work. New technologies on the horizon for architectural glazing will allow buildings to adapt to their environment in revolutionary new ways.

National Window Systems: an installer of high quality windows, doors and conservatories across the North East, is marking its 30th birthday in April by opening every day in the month, as well as offering up to 30% off all of its products.

Materials 2017: makes its debut at the ILEC Conference Centre, Earls Court, London on the 25 and 26 April - has been designed specifically for professionals involved in the procurement of materials for the design of structures, envelope, façades, and finishes.

CENSolutions: Ian Short, MD of Morley Glass and Glazing We made the switch this year as we were fed up with our previous supplier. As a loyal customer of theirs for almost 18 years it became harder and harder to work with them.

Kenrick: healthy growth coincides with the CBI Industrial Trends Survey showing the volume of domestic orders rose at the fastest pace since July 2014. It also predicted that demand would continue to rise over the next quarter.

Pilkington: has collaborated with the NBS National BIM Library to make its commercial IGU products and Planar™ structural glazing models available online for architects and specifiers.

Warm Edge Working Party: in the future, the value λeq,2B, declared on the BF data sheets shall be rechecked on a regular basis, this value is not suitable for a comparison of individual thermal performances of warm edge systems. For that purpose, only the indicative Psi-values shall be used.

frameXpress: team has always impressed longstanding customer, Simon Brookes, “I have always been very happy with the calibre of the range and can honestly say, I have never had any comeback on the products I have installed”. Karen Gardner, comments, Top quality customer support services always make the real difference I feel and are vital to this company’s success.

Solidor: has launched its #SolidorStyleWall campaign. Fabricators and installers already share their stunning project photos on their own and Solidor's Twitter stream. Now installers posting their photos will enter a competition to showcase their work in Solidor's advertising and marketing material.

A glazing technology revolution is just around the corner and it will transform how buildings work, according to a new Pilkington report

New technologies on the horizon for architectural glazing will allow buildings to adapt to their environment in revolutionary new ways, according to architect Ian Ritchie.

According to Ritchie, glass is currently used mainly for its aesthetic properties – its ability to let in light while keeping the elements at bay. However, developments in smart glass technology which allow it to adapt to changing weather conditions could fundamentally change its role in building design.

The architect, whose project contributions include pioneering structural glazing at La Villette, the iconic Louvre pyramids in Paris, the Reina Sofia Museum of Art glass towers in Madrid and the world's largest glass hall in Leipzig, Germany, predicts that glass which darkens in response to UV rays – currently used widely in eyeglasses – will soon be seen in buildings.

Other technologies on the horizon according to Ritchie include glazing that adjusts its light-transmission properties in response to the air temperature, and glass which filters out direct light from specific directions.

His comments are part of a new report from glass manufacturer Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, part of the NSG Group, on the future of glazing in commercial buildings. ..[ more ]
