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.

Was looking for a new front door, to replace our tragically 80's monstrosity. The Three Counties website was great as i could see and design the door i wanted and then get a quote for it. The sales team was really quick to respond, and not at all pushy. A survey was easily arranged, to confirm sizes etc and the installer turned up precisely on time, was super friendly, efficient, neat and very tidy. Whole process took about 4 weeks, beginning to end, and I now have the door of my dreams! The only downside is my neighbors keep pestering me for details of who did the job. No hesitation in recommending Three Counties.

This is the second time I have used Three Counties , a few years later and in a different house this time. It’s great to see the quality of the windows and workmanship have remained 5*. A stress free installation from start to finish, all windows installed have transformed how our 70s style house looks and now no worries of mould as a result of the old timber framed windows. The Installers who completed our job were amazing, and I mean amazing! Hard working, extremely skilful at their trade, polite and very tidy. Each day when they left they hovered up and left the place in the best condition they could. The whole process from the initial quote , measurements and dealing with the office team before and after the installation has been a true pleasure , if only all businesses were as efficient as this. Highly recommended for anyone considering new windows or any other products they provide and I won’t hesitate to use them again. Thank you Three counties!

I shopped around and three counties came in at the most reasonably priced, and I used the buy now pay later option. Really happy with my new door and window, which were both fitted in one afternoon. The customer service was very good throughout and everything went smoothly.
I had some windows fitted a few years ago and have recently had a problem with one of the locking mechanism failing. I called 3 Counties, who had a base call out charge, where a lovely lady took my details, refered to my file and we agreed a date when the fitter would come out and inspect the issue. Paul arrived bang on time and was very helpful. He checked the window, confirmsd the issue and promptly fixed it there and then with a replacement part he had on board his van. He was polite and knowledgable. Very efficient. Thank you 3 Counties.
