Warm-edge spacer

Technoform added a high-profile, plastic hybrid stainless steel warm-edge spacer to its Spacer M family of durable high-performance insulating glass edge seal solutions. The product is composed of high-performance engineered polymer with a thin, low-conductivity stainless steel backing to minimize heat transfer, and to maximize protection against gas leakage and moisture penetration. At 8 millimeters high with the reinforcing wire, the Spacer M high provides improved processability, particularly for the largest insulating glass units, say officials.

IG spacer

Swisspacer, in collaboration with Veka, developed a new set of applications for the Swisspacer Air. The use of the window component can lead to very large spaces between the panes of glass, without the risk of damage caused by climatic stresses; this results in a large number of new possibilities for system configurations, including sound insulation, heat insulation and sun protection. The component makes the use of thinner glass possible, which leads to a lower weight.

SWISSPACER Air - Component for pressure equalization in insulating glass 

ADVERTISEMENT If glasses are installed at a different height than produced, no pressure compensation takes place and it can lead to significant deformations – up to glass breakage. The risk of such damage can be minimized if a continuous pressure equalization takes place between the outside climate and the space between the panes. SWISSPACER Air makes this equalization possible and therefore provides the answer to a fundamental problem in the industry.

Warm-edge spacers

Thermoseal Group recently added a series of new sizes to its Thermobar warm-edge spacer series. New sizes include: 14.5 millimeters, 18.5 mm, 21.5 mm and 23.5 mm spacers with bespoke corner keys to suit. Recent additions also include Thermobar Interbar and fittings in 11.5 mm by 22 mm and 15.5 mm by 22 mm sizes, which also come in black, gray and white. Thermobar Interbar is the Group’s alternative to its Duplex fittings range, which is used to simulate multi-pane windows with standard Thermobar warm-edge spacer.

Vacuum IG Units by Guardian Glass

Guardian will exhibit its vacuum insulating glass units. The IG units provide architects with an exterior glass solution to help building designs meet thermal performance requirements for new construction or building renovation. Guardian vacuum IG units can improve center of glass performance from R1 for single-pane glass to R-12, company officials report. Each unit utilizes two tempered glass panes separated by microspacers, a vacuum between the panes and Guardian SunGuard low-emissivity coatings to deliver insulating performance. The company will also have its Bird1st glass on display. Booth #1121
