Did Your Outsourced Spacer Supplier Let You Down?

Take control! The answer is INTERCEPT®

Were you just told to wait weeks, and more likely months, for the next shipment because of supply chain disruptions? Your next customer conversation can’t be: “We can’t make or ship your windows anytime soon….”

GED takes care of manufacturers when others won’t.

The advantages of using GED systems for managing IGU production and spacer needs:

Open-source consumable model

The Intercept® system has multiple, GED-approved suppliers. This puts you in charge of your supply chain!

Output per labor hour

The Intercept® system for manufacturing warm-edge spacers is the most advanced design that provides the highest capacity per labor hour in the industry (almost 3x more units per worker).

Made in the U.S.A.

The Intercept® system and consumables used are produced in the U.S.A. This ensures no delays caused by a global crisis and multiple supply chain problems (including shipping and port delays). And GED makes 85%, or more, of all GED equipment.
