Edgetech to talk automation and sustainability at Fensterbau 2022

Automation, innovation and sustainability will be among the key themes highlighted by Edgetech, a Quanex company, at this year’s Fensterbau Frontale. 

The world’s leading fenestration trade show, Fensterbau is returning after a four year absence.

Thousands of glass and glazing professionals from around the world will gather in Nuremberg, Germany to see cutting-edge technology, meet colleagues from throughout the industry, and discuss the challenges and opportunities the sector’s faced with. 

At Edgetech, they’re eager to take part in those discussions, and help shape fenestration’s future, as Head of Marketing Charlotte Hawke explains.

“After an incredibly disruptive and unpredictable few years, our sector still faces many challenges,” Charlotte says.

However, it’s also shown its ability to react and adapt to rapidly changing circumstances.  

In the years to come, we’ll need that same resilience and flexibility to tackle some of the biggest issues facing not just our industry, but society as a whole.

The climate crisis is one such threat. Meeting hugely ambitious international net zero targets will require sweeping changes to the way we construct and renovate buildings - and the sort of outstanding energy efficiency that Edgetech’s warm-edge products provide.

Another major obstacle restricting growth in the glass and glazing sector is the worsening skills shortage.

In countries like Britain, an ageing population means that thousands of the most experienced construction and manufacturing professionals are set to retire over the next twenty years.

While governments need to be doing much more to encourage and support talented new recruits to enter vital industries, at Edgetech, we believe we’ll see much wider adoption of automation technology.

We’ve experienced surging demand for our automated spacer application lines in recent months, and will be explaining the benefits to visitors to our stand at Fensterbau.”

You’ll find Edgetech at Hall 6, Booth 2-232, where the company’s internationally renowned Super Spacer®, high-performance Super Spacer® T-Spacer™ SG, and other exceptional products will be on display.
