The flexible spacer for more energy efficiency in buildings
The flexible, foam-based spacer system, Super Spacer® from Edgetech, acts as an energy-efficient warm edge in insulating glass windows. They greatly reduce the loss of energy towards the outside, help prevent as much as possible the formation of condensation and contribute to the long life of windows. Every year, about 300 million meters are sold worldwide in over 90 countries with different climates, from Alaska to Dubai. Because of the flexible materials, Super Spacer® can be shaped easily, is aesthetically pleasing and is suitable for both manual and automated manufacturing processes.
