HEGLA Bystronic Partnership: A glass processor could need to use many specialist glasses for a variety of customers projects. Typical Rapidstore configurations have 20-30 or more glass types in a limited area. The Rapidstore eliminates the need to stop production to search for the right glass type for a particular project, less manual moving of glass means less damage. It keeps the cycle times running rather than shifts having to be stopped to select the right glass from separate storage areas. Steve Goble comments.

Letter to editor - suited heritage products Chris Jones
Over the last five years the timber-alternative heritage look has captured the imagination of homeowners.
It’s been such a hit that many fabricators and installers who originally saw flush casements as an attractive and interesting niche product, now see them becoming the dominant casement window style over the next five years, with traditional storm casements confined to a fifth or a quarter of their output. This trend has been reinforced with the launch of suited heritage flush doors.
Originally the timber-alternative flush look was seen as a more appropriate style for older, period, heritage properties where modern storm casements looked out of place. And they have been accepted as ideal, which is why Deceuninck named ours the Heritage Flush Window. But homeowners, particularly older homeowners – the ‘Haves’ – fell for them in a big way.
