Are you also frustrated by the current glazing products such as putty or wooden beadings? Tired of replacing failing putty/wood beads at great costs, mess and inconvenience? Worried about safety and security risks?
Nu-Glaze, our internationally patented innovation offers the solution for most, if not all your frustrations – whether for new or retro glazing (replacing old, cracked putty and/or wood beadings).
One of the problems faced by the traditional products (putty/clay-like pastes) is the continual drying out factor which it will never overcome, no matter what they put into it. This causes perpetual maintenance headaches. Another issue is the waiting period of 7 – 14 days to allow painting (and someone will “tests” to see if it’s still soft!). Nu-Glaze also saves weight and assist with water flow-off, wind noise and temperature management – important factors for steel or wood window manufacturers, architects, designers and engineers.
Nu-Glaze profiles are made of tough yet safe organic uPVC with extremely high anti UV properties and if treated correctly, should last for ever and a day, keeping water, air, dust, smoke, pollution, smells & burglars out.
Nu-Glaze glazing profiles comes in either 2,0m (6ft 7″) or 2,4m (7ft 10″) lengths.
Profile S : For large (18-23mm or 3/4″-1″ deep) rebate frames. S4 takes 3-4mm (1/8″ – 5/32″) glass. S7 takes 5-6.38mm (13/64″ – 1/4″) safety glass.
Profile W : For smaller (12-16mm or 1/2″-5/8″ deep) rebates, currently only W4 for 3-4mm glass.
Painting/changing of colour is done by priming the PVC, then over paint with any suitable exterior paint, like PVA Acrylic.
Both the S and W profiles can be broken off in front to yield a triangular shaped beading – ideal to finish bathrooms/kitchens or replace the outer putty on windows only.
To order: Measure the rebate height & depth to determine the size of the profile you need. Then measure the circumferences – 2 x (height + width) of each opening to get a total linear length, add 10% for cutting waste and e-mail this with your delivery address to us. We will then provide you with an accurate quote. We export to selected countries as well.
Security: The XY spread of the silicone makes it extremely difficult, if not impossible to remove without breaking the glass or having access to the inside. It has been tested in a notorious South African prison and is still intact to this day. If the glass does break, one can remove the profile, clean and re-fit if still in good shape. More than what one can say about the traditional material!
On this site you will be able to watch the demo video, print out the step by step photo series or the written instructions, but it is so easy to learn, anyone should be able to do it. If you don’t want to DIY, kindly approach your nearest Glazier/Handyman and get them to contact us, we will gladly assist. Be on the lookout for new additions as we are continually developing newness.
In essence, why Nu-Glaze? It looks beautiful when done and apart from the obvious safety, sealing and no-maintenance values added, Nu-Glaze will restore any old, tired building to it’s former beauty and glory.
