Super Spacer soars in Denmark’s eco-friendly Maersk Tower

Super Spacer TriSeal has formed a crucial part of one of Europe’s most eco-friendly buildings.

The Maersk Tower, home to the medical laboratories of the University of Copenhagen, was built in line with Denmark’s historic commitment to becoming 100% carbon neutral by 2050.

It became an instant landmark when it was completed last year thanks to its striking copper shell, the work of superstar architects C. F. Møller and Vienna engineering experts Waagner-Biro.

The futuristic structure incorporates resource-saving measures that include automatic LED lighting, a state-of-the-art eco-friendly cooling system, and rainwater collection for toilet flushing and garden irrigation.

Three-thousand vertical copper-clad fins act as both solar shading and wind protection for the building’s 15 storeys of cylindrically curved triple-glazed facades – where Edgetech’s Super Spacer TriSeal plays a critical role in delivering the building’s exceptional thermal efficiency.

“The Maersk Tower is an outstanding example of how the smallest of components – in this case, warm-edge spacer – can have such a huge impact on a building’s overall performance,” comments Edgetech’s Head of Marketing Charlotte Mercer.

“Together with the stunning glass provided by Berlin-based Glasbiegerei Doring, Super Spacer has helped the building achieve U-values as low as 0.5 W/m2k.

“The sort of curved units that were used on this project demand precise, absolutely parallel application, and that made Super Spacer TriSeal the perfect choice.

“What’s more, Super Spacer’s reflective surface means it completely disappears from view when installed in the frame profile, allowing it to offer world-class performance without compromising the Tower’s dazzling aesthetics.”

The structure has won the Scandinavian Green Roof Prize 2017, the Copenhagen City Architecture Award 2018, the World Architecture Festival Award 2017 in the Higher Education and Research category, and the European Copper in Architecture Award 2017.

Super Spacer’s versatility to take centre-stage at glasstec 2018

Warm-edge experts Edgetech will be showcasing Super Spacer’s market-leading versatility at glasstec, the world’s biggest glass industry trade show.

Drawing over a thousand exhibitors and 40,000 show-goers from 100 countries, glasstec is an emphatically global event, seeking to tackle the biggest issues facing world glass and glazing.

In 2018, visitors to Dusseldorf will be discussing Industry 4.0, the rise of thin glass, facades and smart glass, and new trends in interior design among other hot topics.

At Edgetech’s stand, the respected firm will be celebrating the hundreds of bold and ambitious building projects that Super Spacer has helped bring to life from Scandinavia to the Middle East, including Zaha Hadid’s the Opus in Dubai, and the stunning Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany.

It will showcase the state-of-the-art glass architecture featured in these and a whole host of other Super Spacer-enabled developments all over the world.

“Our aim at glasstec is to show the industry just what Super Spacer can do,” comments Edgetech Managing Director Chris Alderson. “From minus-degree temperatures to the deserts of the Gulf, time and time again Super Spacer has offered outstanding performance as part of some of the most striking and ambitious buildings on the planet.

“Its structural foam absorbs the pumping motion caused by rapid increases and drops in temperature, preventing wear on the primary seal and ensuring longevity in any climate zone. And its flexibility means it can be incorporated into units in whatever weird and wonderful shape an architect can dream up.

“We can’t wait to demonstrate all this and more at glasstec. Come and see us at Stand C61 in Hall 17 from the 23rd to the 26th of October!”
