Windows that meet the highest specification

Companies like Edgetech can provide the products, services and expertise needed to improve housing stock and meet increasingly stringent targets. Super Spacer, found in most Energy Saving Recommended windows, is the most efficient warm edge product. As 80% of heat loss through a window escapes at the edge of the glass Super Spacer makes tangible savings. Energy efficiency is an integral part of any plan for sustainable development.
Edgetech also offers Local Authorities and Housing Associations the benefit of reduced condensation. Condensation is not only common in older homes, itís common in modern homes that are hermetically sealed with wall and loft insulation and double glazing.
Condensation at the edge of the glass in our windows canít be attributed to one single factor such as the window itself or the standard of installation. Itís due to a combination of moisture in the atmosphere, inadequate ventilation and highly conductive metal based spacer bars between the glass. Aluminium spacer bars suck heat from the warm side of the glass to the cold side. Compared with Edgetechís Super Spacer aluminium is 950 times more conductive. Eighty percent of a windowís heat loss is through the glass, and the edge of the glass is its weakest link.
While the Decent Homes Code is driving public sector housing standards up, specifiers and social landlords need to ensure that condensation, and the causes of condensation are reduced as much as possible to maintain healthy homes for longer. Thatís where Super Spacer can help. For more information on Super Spacer and Edgetech, click here.
