What Are the Benefits of Super Spacer Technology?

(2 min read)

Quick FAQs

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.

We recently decided to replace our front door, and could not be happier with the result! Thanks so much to Kate, for her time and understanding. Cannot say enough good things about the installation, and Cameron was tidy and efficient. It's been a pleasure to work with Three Counties recently, doors and windows. Many thanks!

Excellent service!! We had 21 windows and 3 doors installed and very happy with it all. The process from start to finish was stress free and Ron and Lee who installed the windows and doors were great. Would definitely recommend!

Just had my tatty old windows replaced by Three Counties, and it’s been a highly professional job from start to finish. Communication from the administration team was prompt and courteous at all times, and installation ended up being much quicker than advertised projections. Installation was without issue and the lads who did the work were amenable to my requirements and did an excellent job. Very happy with the entire process. Three Counties were recommended to me by friends and I can certainly now recommend them to others.

Bought two new windows and a new front door from Three Counties, was very impressed with the attitude of all staff, who were friendly and informative. Price was good, and installation completed without a hitch - very happy with the final product, and would definitely use again.

We have just had all our windows (18) replaced, french doors (20 and side panels (2) by Three Counties. We could not be more pleased with their workmanship and the finished product. They left the property incredibly clean after each day, and this despite the messy nature of ripping out old windows and frames. We were kept informed at each stage and a minor snagging issue was resolved promptly and efficiently after installation. A first class service. We would not hesitate to recommend Three Counties.

Three Counties have now installed several windows and doors on our house and they're always my go-to company. I used another before I discovered them and they let me down, but I absolutely cannot fault Three Counties. From the moment you contact them they're courteous and professional, and they keep in touch with timescales and installation times. Friendly installers too, who go above and beyond. You'd think all this great service would cost more but they beat other companies on price. Highly recommended and trusted, I'd never go anywhere else now.
