With a groundbreaking innovation, EDUARD KRONENBERG GmbH has once again raised the bar on the market for straight connectors for spacer bar profiles standards and presents its EK STEEL Connect straight connectors from the Permanent Spacer Connection series. Designed specifically to be used with the latest warm edge hybrid profile systems, they incorporate EK's best features to create a resilient, high-precision connecting element.
Two things are noticeable immediately - the completely new type of locking system and the redesigned sideways serrated edges of these innovative straight connectors to ensure easy insertion of the connecting elements, in addition to providing secure and stable mating of the profile bars for permanent connections with no separation. The EK STEEL Connect straight connectors are designed to withstand extremely high loads - even for jumbo format insulating glass units, such as those used for very large façade windows. The large U-shape of the connector, combined with optimum matching, guarantees trouble-free, reliable desiccant filling. Build-up of static electricity and turbulence at profile mating points are now a thing of the past.
Easy insertion - permanent and secure grip with no profile separation. Pleasant handling, as there are no sharp serrated edges.
Excellent absorption of profile tolerances and trouble-free filling with desiccant.
Extreme stability for all widths and frame sizes (including jumbo formats).
Pre-assembled or for subsequent frame assembly for warm edge hybrid profiles.
