QUICKglaze - Advanced Knock in Bead Technology

Published 8th September 2023 by Sternfenster Categories: Updates

Installing windows and doors can be a lengthy process, even for professionals. However, advancements in bead technology have made it possible for installers to fit windows and doors in record time, with no compromises on quality. At Sternfenster, we manufacture and supply several aluminium window and door profiles, including the sleek and strong Visofold 1000 Smarts Aluminium bifold door. We are also proud to offer our customers advanced knock-in bead technology from QUICKglaze, providing them with quick lead times and a simple installation process. 

What Is QUICKglaze?

If you work in the home improvements trade and have noticed a drop in profit margins when installing aluminium bifold doors and other profiles, you are not alone. The sales price of bifold doors has reduced over recent years and traditional bead fitting methods are no longer the most financially viable option for installers. 

The purpose of glazing beads is to securely hold the glass in place, ensuring a tight seal against water and improving the overall energy efficiency of the profile. In the past, when fitting aluminium bifold doors, it was necessary to fit the gaskets separate to the bead. This installation method is time consuming, especially when different components have different delivery times – resulting in several trips made back and forth between sites to collect each item.  QUICKglaze knock-in bead technology solves this problem. These glazing beads are manufactured with co-extruded gaskets and provide a secure fit and aesthetically pleasing finish
