Giardina and Schuberts – the Perfect Finish





Yorke Towne, Toronto, Test Centre Sees Additional Install








Yorke Towne Supplies Ltd, Schuberts’ sole agents for Ontario, Canada have just taken delivery of the next phase of the new production-spec Test Centre.














The fully integrated ATEX CSA system features a manual smart booth spray system. This constantly monitors and automatically adapts the airflow and pressure differential inside the spray zone, keeping dust out, vapours inside and overspray drawn into the extraction filters. The system makes up for doors being opened, quality and saturation of the filtration system and changes in factory pressures (dust extraction, loading bay doors etc)













A flash-off section connects directly to the spray enclosure and allows coated product to flow out, settle and vent before going into the Schubox for rapid drying. The flash-off features filtered air input and low level extraction, again with 1000 lux lighting sets.

The Schubox completes the Test Centre, allowing either solvent or water based coatings for wood, glass, PVC, GRP and composites to be rapidly dried, at low temperature in record time. Utilising CSA and ATEX approved gas catalytic log wave infra red emitters, the Schubox can run from 30c to 50c and in combination with BA stainless, fireproof carcass, filtered air input and a unique recirculating airflow inside the Schubox.

For more information and to run trials in the Yorke Towne Canadian Test Centre, email scesario@yorketowne.com or call +1 905-762-1200

SWC Invest In Schubox System

Family run since 1989 and based in Scarborough, SWC Trade Frames is a large regional fabricator of premium quality PVCu & Aluminium windows, doors, conservatory roofs and specialist products such as vertical sash sliding windows, shaped frames and composite doors. They manufacture in excess of 1000 frames per week and supply exclusively to the Trade.






















Coating and finishing is key to SWC giving their customers colour choice and with the massive rise in painted finishes, SWC have had a new custom Schubox gas catalytic IR drying system installed in their factory.




























The new Schubox will slash drying times for both solvent and waterbased PVC and GRP coatings from multiple hours to just 45 minutes. The Schubox uses an intrinsically safe gas catalytic infra-red technology to cure the coatings very rapidly at a low temperature of 35-38c. This improves quality, reduces work in progress and means the turn-around time for sprayed product is cut dramatically.




















Rhys Richings, MD of SWC says “The Schuberts guys from start to finish were fantastic & we’ll certainly pass on our recommendations”


Chris Widdowfield, Engineer at SWC says “Had the pleasure of engaging a very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable team of installation engineers this week. A lovely job well done. Thank you Schuberts.”

Keylite Dry In Record Time With Schubox Technology

Keylite Dry In Record Time With Schubox Technology



Keylite offer a full range of roof windows, blinds, timber loft ladders, flashings, electric operation kits and accessories and is Europe’s fastest growing roof window manufacturer.

Underpinning their 10 year warranty is a high quality coating finish and when sales volumes increased, this became a production bottleneck. Keylite turned to Schuberts for an affordable quick curing process for their waterbased coatings.

Full production trials were carried out with Keylite substrate, their own range of coatings and their production methods, in the Schubert UK Test Centre Schubox system. This proved that under real conditions, the Schubox system can more than half the drying times of their finishes.







A custom dimension Schubox was ordered and then 7 weeks later was installed in Zambrow, Poland. This Schubox employs long wave gas catalytic infrared technology via heating panel emitters.









Running at just 38-40c, it is able to accept racks of wet products and dry them properly in record time, without affecting the substrate.























Jim Blanthorne, Keylite International Operations Director, says “We are delighted with the performance of the Schubox. There have been immediate improvements in quality, cycle time and capacity. This, the latest in a series of investments, will ensure we continue to supply our range of innovative and award winning products in line with our ambitious growth plans”.
