Few companies in the window industry have done as much for energy efficient glazing over the years as Edgetech UK. From lobbying governments, facilitating discussions and bringing the entire industry together in 2014 with Triple Glazing Question, this Coventry based component manufacturer has worked with IGU manufacturers, systems companies, fabricators and installers.
Starting in the US in 1989, Edgetech arrived in the UK five years later. In 2007 Edgetech started manufacturing Super Spacer flexible warm edge spacer in the UK. The productivity benefits alongside the thermal efficiency of Super Spacer changed the face of IGU manufacturing. Creating cost effective, high performance units has always been the goal for Edgetech, and approximately one third of all units in the UK are made with Edgetech’s spacer products.
In 2014, Edgetech’s 25th anniversary year, it added more products to its portfolio. Changing Edgetech from a single component manufacturer to a comprehensive component supplier for warm edge windows. For IGU manufacturers the award winning Super Spacer Alpha, the best performing spacer in the world, a rigid warm edge spacer TruPlas, high performance desiccant TruSieve, and a simulated divided lite system SDL.
