Sept. 29, 2010 – The Win-Door Show, running from Nov. 16 to 18 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, has lined up two new features for show attendees – a New Product Showcase and an Ask the Experts Centre for up-to-the-minute answers on insulated glass.
The New Product Showcase is a dual online and “in-person” introduction to a host of new products on hand at the show. Attendees can view entries online prior to their visit and make a note to check them out when the show is up and running. And, if they miss the chance to see what’s new until they arrive at the show, they can visit the area in person. New high-strength adhesives, polymers and foam tapes, innovative door lites, patio door sentry systems, computer software, hybrid windows, sealing equipment and a junior CNC machine are just a few of the entries to date. Attendees can see the latest entries prior to the show by visiting www.windoorshow.com/new-products.cfm .
The new IGMA Technical Resource Centre will play host to show attendees with questions on glass, insulating glass, certification and what’s new in the industry. It’s the place to Ask the Experts anything and everything relating to IG. Want to know if insulated sealed units (IG's) can be repaired in the field? What about the average life span of an insulating glass unit or, what factors in window design contribute to early IG failure? This feature area will not only have experts like Bill Lingnell, IGMA’s Technical Consultant and North America’s leading forensic investigator on hand, but as well it will feature over 100 technical presentations covering design and fabrication, gas filling, thermal stress, high performance glass, forensic investigative techniques, certification, components, energy performance and new technologies. One lucky visitor each day will win an IGMA technical binder covering design & fabrication, voluntary test methods, post fabrication & installation, codes & standards and all technical bulletins and reports, a value of $575 USD.
The show kicks off on November 16 at 5:00 p.m. and continues over the next two days in the South Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Industry attendees can save money on registration fees by registering online in advance, before November 6, at www.windoorshow.com . Free parking for exhibitors and attendees to the show is sponsored by Richersons.
