Architectural Glass Products (AGP) in New Zealand recently purchased two Glaston FC tempering lines. AGP will supply high-performance insulating glass units to Architectural Profiles Limited’s (APL) 72 window manufacturers throughout New Zealand who are experiencing a surge in thermally efficient windows, doors and façades in residential and commercial buildings.

“My choice of the FC furnace, in particular, is because I strongly believe we need repeatable quality results, and the FC really provides that for us,” says David Bunting, general manager of AGP. “Other furnaces may be able to do it when variables align favorably, but then you rely more on an operator’s skills. I wanted to make sure the furnace could help our operators produce the same quality day in and day out—for many years.”
