Timberweld® is the latest industry big name to come on board for the 2019 Glazing Summit.

The Summit, organised by glazing industry specialists Insight Data and Purplex Marketing, takes place on Thursday, September 12 at Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre in Birmingham.

Timberweld® is a patented method of jointing that creates a perfect butt-joint effect on the outside and inside of a PVC-U window for an authentic timber-look.

The manufacturing process was invented by Alan Burgess and Ray Rabett, the Group Chairman and Technical & Compliance Director of leading sash window fabricator Mastrerframe; and is being licenced to a growing number of fabricators.

Masterframe holds the exclusive licence to use the technology for sash window manufacturing.

Timberweld® pioneer Alan Burgess commented: “Having spent 45 years in the industry, I think it’s vital that we have an event where we can all come together to discuss the challenges and issues the industry faces.

“Last year’s event was very interesting, and we are looking forward to partnering with the Glazing Summit for 2019 and hearing some great debates.”

Andrew Scott, the founder of the Glazing Summit and CEO of Insight Data and Purplex, commented: “Timberweld® is a real industry innovation and I’m delighted that Alan has agreed to be an Event Partner at this year’s Glazing Summit.”
