Edgetech’s Super Spacer® products are easier to apply than any other spacer bar on the market, by utilising either manual equipment to produce 250 units per shift through to a high-speed, fully automated line that can impressively manufacture up to 1,400 insulated glass units in a single 8-hour shift. Making considerable monetary and time savings for IGU manufacturers, it also removes the need to cut it into bar length form as it’s applied continuously in a flexible continual reel. There is no need for a PIB primary seal or desiccant filling either, as the product is pre-desiccated and has an acrylic seal applied already for assembly. Therefore, productivity is heightened even further with a simplified 4-point manufacturing process and just 3 workers required in IGU production, in comparison to the lengthy 9-point manufacturing process and 6 workers required in IGU production that’s typical of conventional, conductive aluminium box spacers.
For IGU manufacturers that want to maintain their existing manufacturing setup but want to improve on the performance of conventional aluminium spacers the TruPlas rigid box warm edge spacer is available in 3 colours and a wide range of widths. It has been designed to make manufacturing easier by offering reduced static, reinforced shoulders to prevent drooping in large IGUs and is less brittle than alternative products.
Edgetech’s spacer bar range is also helping installers meet the increasing demands of homeowners, who require double glazed products that can offer A-ratings that will truly stand the test of time.
