What is a Super Spacer?
Super Spacer® is a flexible, silicone foam spacer technology developed by Edgetech UK. SuperSpacer is a non-metal, pre-desiccated, structural foam spacer system which provides excellent perimeter insulation for sealed glazing units, whilst significantly simplifying insulating glass production.
What is warm edge spacer?
Warm edge spacer bars are made from materials with low conductivity, which significantly improve the thermal performance of insulating glass units. This not only helps to prevent heat loss and improve the energy efficiency of the unit, but it also helps to remove the cold edge to reduce condensation.
What is double glazing spacer bar?
A spacer bar, sometimes known as a profile, is the continuous hollow Aluminium frame that separates the two glass panes in a double glazing window. The spacer bar is bonded to the glass panes via a primary and secondary seal, creating an airtight cavity which is filled with air or gas.
What is a glazing spacer?
A warm edge spacer is a type of spacer bar used in insulated glazing. It separates the panes of glass in double or triple glazing, or curtain walling and seals off the air cavity between each. Recent warm edge spacers are generally made from plastics, although stainless steel can meet the definition.
What is the best spacer for Windows?
The best window spacer system is the Super Spacer. It is the best because it significantly improves glass surface temperature, has a decent sound absorption, decreases stress on sealants, has decent heat flow resistance, and helps resist condensation better than other window spacer systems.
What is a Swiss spacer?
View our product range SWISSPACER is at the heart of energy saving windows. Warm edge spacer bars insulate the edges of an energy efficient sealed unit. They keep the panes of glass apart and maintain the integrity of the air gap that insulates a building from heat loss through windows.
What is the standard thickness of double glazing?
double glazing grew from an overall thickness of 20mm to 24mm and finally settled on 28mm even though thermally, with either air or argon cavities, 24mm is the optimum size.
What does a window spacer do?
Window glass spacers or space bars are strips of plastics, metals or foams that separate, support and help seal in functional gasses that are injected between the panes of glass in a window. Spacers are bonded between glass panes with various sealing materials to help create an air-tight cavity.
What is a Intercept spacer?
Intercept spacers feature a unique, one-piece, tin-plated or stainless steel, U-channel design that creates an effective thermal barrier to help reduce conducted heat loss through the window.
Can I replace double glazing with triple glazing?
Double glazing is a fantastic way to improve the look and energy efficiency of your home. It’s possible to replace your double glazing with triple glazing easily and for less than you think! Triple glazing is very similar to double glazing, but with even better results.
Is triple glazing any better than double glazing?
1) Triple glazing is approximately 40% more thermally efficient than “A” rated PVCu double glazing so energy savings are far higher. 2) Triple glazed windows and doors will further reduce draughts and cold spots in a room that currently has less thermally efficient windows and doors.
What does a spacer do on an inhaler?
Spacers help the medication get straight to where it’s needed in your lungs, with less medication ending up in your mouth and throat where it can lead to irritation or mild infections. A spacer can also make it easier to coordinate breathing in and pressing your puffer.
