What are the benefits of using Super Spacer technology?
Super Spacer technology offers several benefits, including improved energy efficiency, reduced condensation, increased comfort, a longer lifespan, and environmental friendliness.
How does Super Spacer technology reduce energy bills?
Super Spacer technology reduces heat transfer through the edges of a window, improving thermal efficiency and reducing energy bills.
Can Super Spacer technology be used with different types of windows?
Yes, Super Spacer technology can be used with various types of windows, including double-pane, triple-pane, and even curved windows.
Super Spacer Technology: An Introduction
If you don’t work in the glazing industry, you might not be aware of spacers. Although tiny, they do a mighty job: separating the panes of glass in a window, they support thermal and acoustic performance. The earliest spacers (in Victorian times) were made from rope or wood. As double-glazing took off, most spacers were made from metal.
Advances in technology continually seek to address issues. When it comes to windows, those issues can include draughts and heat loss, noise from outside, and condensation. The window industry has developed a new technology called Super Spacer to address these issues.
What is Super Spacer Technology?
Did you know? 80% of window energy loss occurs at the edge of the glass.
Super Spacer is a warm-edge spacer used in windows to separate the panes of glass. Unlike traditional aluminium spacers, Super Spacer is made of a flexible foam material that reduces heat transfer and improves thermal efficiency. Super Spacer is 950% less conductive than traditional aluminium spacers. The foam material also reduces stress on the glass and sealant.
How Does Super Spacer Technology Work
Super Spacer reduces heat loss through the edges of a window, preventing condensation and damage to the window frame. It also reduces air leakage and noise transmission, providing a more comfortable indoor environment. Super Spacer is durable, has a longer lifespan than traditional spacers, and is environmentally friendly.
What are the advantages of Super Spacer Technology
Super Spacer technology offers several advantages:
- improved glass surface temperature
- better heat flow resistance
- minimised stress on the sealants
- optimal sound absorption
- reduced condensation
- flexibility and versatility; they can be used on unconventionally-shaped windows
These benefits provide homeowners with increased comfort and a healthier living environment (with reduced condensation and risk of mould). The reduced heat loss means lower energy bills, and the decreased stress on the sealants means a longer lifespan for windows.
Are Super Spacers right for my home?
Super Spacer technology is a cost-effective solution to improve the performance of your windows. Its flexible foam material and low-conductivity properties have made it the go-to choice for architects, builders, and homeowners. Super Spacer technology has become essential to modern window systems, providing superior thermal efficiency, flexibility, and durability.
