Major capacity increase at Climate

Climate Capacity IncreaseClimate, the conservatory roof glass division of the UK’s largest independent sealed unit manufacturer the Glass Systems Group, has seen a significant increase in capacity following the installation of a third Lisec automatic arising line, an additional auto-cutting table with edge deletion and a fourth tempering furnace at their factory in Port Talbot.

The company is now comfortably producing around 3,000 units a week of their popular Climate conservatory roof glass and tempering 30,000m2 of toughened glass each week – and according to managing director Alan Atkinson the recent investment means there is room for further growth.

“The conservatory roof glass market is going from strength to strength and Climate is better equipped than ever to supply this increasing demand. The new Lisec automatic arising line, auto-cutting table and furnace has significantly enhanced our manufacturing capabilities and has enabled us to produce higher volumes with greater ease. This is good news for our customers who are ordering glass roofs in ever increasing numbers and need a fast turnaround and flexible service to suit their needs.”

Climate conservatory roof glass is available in five options – Aqua H.P, Activ Blue, Activ Neutral, Privacy and 4S – and each option reduces glare, cuts heating bills and keep the room temperature consistent whether it’s the height of summer or depths of winter.

Climate Aqua H.P is the company’s premium quality glass and has proved a big seller since its launch early in 2010. Manufactured using Bioclean Cool-Lite Aqua Green, Climate Aqua HP combines two coatings to enhance glass performance. The first coating harnesses UV light and rain to effectively break down and rinse away dirty residues to keep the glass cleaner for longer. The second coating reflects up to 72% of the suns rays, which keeps the interior temperature cooler during sunny spells.

“Climate glass is available in a variety of options and we will be manufacturing a lot more of it thanks to our recent machinery investment” Alan concludes.
