The world’s first all foam, NO-Metal spacer system
All Super Spacer® warm edge spacer products are manufactured with Edgetech’s specially engineered, all foam, NO-Metal technology. Super Spacer is a true dual seal warm edge spacer system that uses a high-performance acrylic adhesive for its structural seal, backed by a moisture vapor seal. Two seals are better than one – proven by the fact the windows made with Super Spacer last five times longer in durability tests than single-seal units.
Super Spacer’s all foam, NO-Metal formula provides:
Windows lose and gain heat by conduction, convention, radiation and air leakage. Conduction is the movement of heat through a solid material – touch a hot skillet and you feel heat conducted from the stove through the pan. Heat flows through a window in much the same way.
Unlike metal-based spacers, the all foam construction of Super Spacer is non-conductive, blocking heat flow through the window. By blocking the heat escape path, Super Spacer provides one of the best thermal performances in the industry. Also see Warm Edge Spacer Technology for more information.
Unlike metal spacers, Super Spacer can bounce back when put to the test against winds, temperature fluctuation, rain, snow and UV light. The foam construction of Super Spacer allows it to expand and contract as need, but always return to its original shape. Without Super Spacer’s 100 percent memory formula, windows can eventually crack and lead to seal failure.
Super Spacer’s Durability is proven by its outstanding performance in the industry’s toughest durability test – the P1 Chamber. Super Spacer units withstand 140-degree Fahrenheit temperatures, 95-100-percent humidity and constant UV bombardment. Also see Durability for more information.
The fact that Super Spacer is non-conductive means that it also protects a major household threat: mold. Window condensation can lead to molds that increase the likelihood of allergens, including fungi, viruses and mites that might cause respiratory infections, allergies and asthma.
Mold needs moisture to grow. To keep condensation off of glass, windows need to have the warmest inside surface temperature as possible – and the world’s warmest edge occurs with Super Spacer.
The closed-cell polymer foam in Super Spacer transmits very little sound compared to conventional metal spacers. Another reason you’re more comfortable at home with Super Spacer.
It's no wonder that with more than 20 years of experience, we have set the standard globally for warm edge spacer systems in the industry. From Edgetech, you can also get a variety of high-performance fenestration products designed to help you run more smoothly and improve your overall efficiencies and product quality. From time-saving grid placement tables to vinyl bending, structural adhesives and muntin end clips, we can help!
