Outstanding longevity, durability and thermal efficiency from Super Spacer® T-Spacer™ SG

It was already one of the world’s most outstanding flexible warm edge spacers – but now, Edgetech have launched an even better version of their celebrated Super Spacer® T-Spacer™.

Super Spacer® T-Spacer™ SG is a metal-free, silicone-based warm edge spacer made of structural foam with an integrated desiccant, that’s been designed for the toughest commercial applications.

On demanding glazing projects using extra-large glass panes, its extremely durable edge seal guarantees decades of exceptional performance and stability.

T-Spacer™ SG offers enhanced shape memory, which is critical for the long-term integrity of the edge seal. Its elastic structural foam follows climate-related movements of the glass, relieving a large proportion of the load from the butyl seal.

This is a huge advantage in parts of the world that experience fluctuating temperatures.

T-Spacer™ SG also follows in the long-established Edgetech tradition of offering superb energy efficiency, achieving thermal conductivity of just 0.19 W/m2k – much lower than the commercial metal and hybrid rigid spacers on the market.

“Structural glazing continues to be hugely in demand, and Super Spacer® T-Spacer™ SG is a world-leading spacer product for the toughest commercial glazing projects,” comments Edgetech Managing Director Chris Alderson.

“We’ve taken the hugely successful template provided by T-Spacer™ Premium Plus, and improved it in a number of ways, to produce what we’re confident is one of the world’s best flexible spacers.

“What’s more, we’ve adapted the typical T-shape warm-edge spacer design to make SG even easier to use with automated IGU manufacturing lines.

“We’re delighted to be bringing Super Spacer® T-Spacer™ SG to market, and look forward to seeing it incorporated in ambitious commercial glazing projects all around the world.”

Edgetech Expertise: Financial Controller Emma Leaney

Meet the team behind the Warm Edge Super Spacer Bar from Edgetech, the driving force for energy efficient glazing

As UK Financial Controller, Emma’s role covers lots of departments at Edgetech. Here she talks about what she does and why she’s proud to work for Quanex.

I joined Edgetech UK in November 2017 as Assistant Financial Controller and have really enjoyed working alongside such an amazing team. Following my promotion in November 2019 to UK Financial Controller I now oversee the Finance department. As a member of the Senior Management Team I have a good overview of Edgetech and the opportunity to have some really interesting conversations with our other experts, so we can make sure that customers are getting the best service from the whole team.

How Does Edgetech Support Customers?

The customer service team is with our customers all the way through the buying process, so we can respond quickly to any questions they might have. We take orders from our IGU manufacturing customers for our growing range of energy efficient products, arrange delivery times with them and make sure that orders are delivered on time and in full.

Ensuring that Super Spacer® and our full range of IGU manufacturing components arrive when customers need them is something we pride ourselves on at Edgetech. As well as detailed risk assessment plans, covered by our ISO 9001:2015 accreditation, we have a global distribution network, so customers can be confident we can deliver.

Edgetech has expanded its product offering in recent years to now include all necessary components for IGU manufacture. We have added TruPlas, a rigid warm edge spacer, alongside our flagship Super Spacer flexible warm edge spacer product and also a full range of ancillaries.

As well as day-to-day customer service, we offer excellent support from our technical, sales and marketing departments, to help our customers keep things running smoothly.

There is plenty of experience and expertise in IGU manufacture and also about energy efficient glazing within the team, so if customers have any questions, we can always find the answer.

What Makes You Proud to Work at Edgetech & Quanex?

I’m proud to be a part of Quanex because it is a forward-thinking organisation that is always looking to grow. It means we have a strong emphasis on offering the best customer service and the financial backing from them to invest in the infrastructure and support systems to make this possible.

Edgetech is a good company to work for, and to deal with, because it is large enough to offer a broad product range, but small enough to offer a detailed, personal approach to every customer we help.
