August 2016

 

Industry professionals consider it one of the most highly-anticipated international events – thanks to the vast array of technologies from companies around the world – the 2016 edition of Glasstec will offer a range of innovations that spans all the glass industry sectors in which the Fenzi Group consistently excels.

 

The spotlight this year will be focused on Tecglass, the company specialized in machines for digital printing on glass, which joined the Fenzi Group at the beginning of the year. Live printing demonstrations at the Fenzi stand will allow companies specialized in glass decoration to see for themselves the efficacy and accuracy of the elegant technology contained in the Tecglass machines – versatile yet simple and efficient tools for glass decoration, capable of printing all kinds of graphic motifs and photographic images with excellent definition and special color effects.

 

Consistent with the innovative services and customer care policy promoted by the Fenzi Group, at Glasstec, Tecglass will introduce its exclusive app developed as a sales support for its customers. This innovative service, available for smart phones and tablets, makes it possible to view a nearly infinite number of decorative patterns and simulate their effect when printed on glass, for quick and easy demonstration of the final product. Tecglass technology makes it possible to achieve the desired decorative and chromatic effects, in a palette of custom colors and with an immense choice of existing graphic solutions.

 

Ample space will also be set aside to showcase its warm edge products, engineered to ensure the utmost residential comfort while safeguarding the environment. Multitech, an innovative rigid spacer developed in the Alu-Pro and Rolltech laboratories and made of reinforced plastic with a special multi-layer barrier, joins the large family of Glass Alliance spacers. Multitech is ranked among the industry products with the highest achievable performance in linear thermal transmittance (Psi). Thanks to the extremely thin but exceptionally durable features of the multi-layer barrier to water vapor and gas, the new spacer complies with the most restrictive, current international standards, and ensures excellent performance.

 

Glass Alliance is the international network composed of Fenzi, Alu-Pro and Rolltech, an industry leader with the most complete range of products for the manufacture of insulating glass. The highest levels of qualitative and performance standards are confirmed by the Passivhaus certification awarded to the Multitech and Chromatech lines of spacers. These are essential features for IG units with low environmental impact because they contribute to optimization of energy costs thanks to extremely low levels of heat loss. Internationally recognized for sustainable architecture, Passivhaus certification identifies homes with excellent living comfort and energy efficiency, and places special attention on the quality requirements for each individual component, especially windows and doors.
