Super Spacer Warm Edge Technology
Choosing windows, doors and conservatories with Super Spacer and Low 'E' glass may seem a long way from saving the planet, but the insulating properties of this thermally efficient spacer bar are such that they can reduce heat loss by up to a staggering 94% through your window.
- Up to 70% reduced condensation
- Improved window 'U' Value up to 0.2 W/m2k
- Up to 65% warmer at the edge of the glass
- Reduce heat loss by up to 94%
- Up to 2dB noise reduction
Up to 70% reduced condensation
Super Spacer reduces condensation by up to 70% virtually eliminating the potential breeding ground for mould growth and bacteria.
Up to 65% warmer at the edge
Windows fitted with Super Spacer have a warmer internal edge temperature of up to 65% reducing heat loss through the edge of the glass.
Reduced energy costs
80% of the energy lost through a window occurs at the edge of the glass because of the highly conductive nature of aluminium spacer. Super Spacer blocks the heat loss and reduces energy costs.
Up to 2Db noise reduction
Sealed units featuring Super Spacer have been proven to reduce transmission by up to 2dB.
