Longevity, durability and thermal efficiency
Edgetech has launched an improved version of its Super Spacer T-Spacer.
Super Spacer T-Spacer SG is a metal-free, silicone-based warm edge spacer made of structural foam with an integrated desiccant, that’s been designed for commercial use.
On demanding glazing projects using extra-large glass panes, its durable edge seal “guarantees decades of exceptional performance and stability”, the company said.
T-Spacer SG offers shape memory, which is critical for the long-term integrity of the edge seal. Its elastic structural foam follows climate-related movements of the glass, relieving a large proportion of the load from the butyl seal.
This is advantageous in parts of the world that experience fluctuating temperatures.
T-Spacer SG also achieves thermal conductivity of 0.19W/m2k, reportedly lower than the commercial metal and hybrid rigid spacers on the market.
“Structural glazing continues to be hugely in demand, and Super Spacer T-Spacer SG is a world-leading spacer product for the toughest commercial glazing projects,” Edgetech’s managing director Chris Alderson said.
“We’ve taken the hugely successful template provided by T-Spacer Premium Plus, and improved it in a number of ways to produce what we’re confident is one of the world’s best flexible spacers.
“What’s more, we’ve adapted the typical T-shape warm-edge spacer design to make SG even easier to use with automated IGU manufacturing lines.”
