Technology Description
Double glazed units are typically separated by aluminium spacers, which have high thermal conductivity. Technoform Warm Edge spacer, which is a thermally improved spacer, is made of polypropylene and stainless steel, allowing it to substantially reduce heat transfer at the edge of the glass. A “Warm Edge Spacer” is defined by EN ISO 10077-2 as having a thermal conductance of less than 0.007 W/K.

Technology Features
Technoform Warm Edge Spacer is a bendable warm edge spacer bar that offers the ultimate combination of good thermal performance, high productivity and value for money. Made of a high performance synergy of stainless steel and polypropylene, Technoform Warm Edge Spacer offers the highest levels of resistance against gas leakage. 

Technoform Warm Edge Spacer features low Psi-values for the glass edge and improves fenestration U-values and Window Energy Ratings for all types of frame materials, substantially reducing heat transfer at the edge of glass. Additionally, it minimises condensation, hence increasing the lifespan of insulating glass units.
Technology Advantages
• Improves thermal performance at the edge of the glass while maintaining exceptional durability
• Reduces risk of condensation at the edge of the glass
• Increases productivity during the fabrication of insulating glass units
• Reduces building envelope heat gain
• Lowers electrical consumption and carbon emission due to cooling and heating
• Improves indoor comfort
