Truseal Leads with Green at GlassBuild America 2008

Post Time:Oct 15,2008Classify:Company NewsView:396

Truseal Technologies, Inc., a world leader in warm edge spacer systems for insulating glass (IG), is going green in several ways at the GlassBuild America 2008 expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Oct. 6-8, 2008. Visitors to Truseal’s booth (#2174) will get a first look at ENERGY STAR certified windows for 2009 and 2013, learn more about the company’s Envirosealed Windows™ campaign and have the chance to walk away with a two-year lease on a 2008 Toyota Prius hybrid vehicle.

Truseal’s booth will feature four window kiosks showcasing examples of Envirosealed Windows, made with Truseal’s Duralite™ spacers, that meet or exceed proposed ENERGY STAR criteria for 2009 and 2013. The window kiosks will also feature information on how Truseal’s Envirosealed Windows can earn builders two to three LEED points in construction projects due to the windows’ higher U-values and lower Solar Heat Gain Coefficient levels.

Truseal will also showcase multiple aspects of its Envirosealed Windows campaign. The campaign is available to any window manufacturer using the energy-efficient Dura Platform spacer system, which includes Duralite and Duraseal™ spacers. Duralite offers the lowest U-value rating compared with other spacers for the most energy-efficient window systems available on the market. The Envirosealed Windows campaign simplifies the environmental messaging for window manufacturers by highlighting the benefits of thermally efficient spacers. The program helps manufacturers and dealers address the growing demand for green products, while offering a window with unsurpassed energy savings.

Windows aren’t the only environmentally friendly display in Truseal’s booth; the booth materials themselves are also green. Truseal took its environmental messaging to heart when designing the booth. Some examples of environmentally friendly materials being used include:

  • Carpet – The carpet is made from post-consumer products, creating less waste and reusing it in new ways.
  • Bamboo display panels – All the panels are made from bamboo. Bamboo is a grass product, so it has a short growth cycle and regenerates faster than timber, which helps save forests.
  • Plyboo® bar counter – Plyboo is cured bamboo. It is stronger than oak and grows like grass.
  • Water filling station – Visitors to the booth can win a Nalgene® water bottle by playing a claw machine game and fill up right at the booth. Reusable water bottles help reduce waste.

“It is important to be green not just with one’s products, but also in one’s business practices. Truseal is leading efforts to enhance energy efficiency in the home with its thermally efficient spacer systems. We are carrying that responsibility through to our business whenever possible. Addressing green opportunities in the design of our GlassBuild booth is just one example,” said Ric Jackson, Truseal’s director of marketing and business development.

Visitors to Truseal’s booth also can register to win a two-year lease on a 2008 Toyota Prius hybrid vehicle. GlassBuild registered attendees are eligible for the Prius lease drawing. Booth visitors will also have the opportunity to win various other prizes including GPS systems, iPods®, casino chips and water bottles.
