Magnified Mould

mould on windows magnified. mould can effect health of children and adults in the home.

Mould on windows and glazing perimeter can effect health of children and adults in the homes, workplaces and academic buildings that are effected by this issue.

Warm Edge the Solution

edgetech super spacer allows flexing and movement of the glass

 

Not only that, but window condensation can contribute to mould growth, a sinister presence hidden from sight deep inside window and wall openings. In fact, visible mould can often be found in poorly insulated or installed windows. Mould is more and more being linked to child asthma plus increases in general respiratory illness, allergies and outbreaks of fungal diseases.

Super Spacer® Resists Mould and Associated Issues

Many of today’s energy efficient windows offer glass packages with “Warm Edge Technology.” The problem is that highly conductive metal-based insulating glass spacers are often used in these new windows.

A new window can lose up to 50% of its overall stated R-value with a metal-based spacer at the edge of the glass. R stands for the “resistance” of the transfer of heat or cold through a solid object. So, a higher R-value means better insulation against heating and cooling loss. (Read more...)

The edge of the insulating glass is the most vulnerable to heating and cooling loss. This usually leads to condensation. It’s a problem that looks unsightly, and over time, it will stain wood, peel paint and rot frames.

The Problem

the difference between various spacer bars for heat cold transmission

  1. Full Metal Spacer - With conventional metal spacers, condensation is a fact of life.
  2. Less Metal Spacer - Mid-performance spacer systems that contain some metal improve condensation resistance.
  3. NO-Metal Super Spacer - Patented all-foam design dramatically reduces condensation, delivering the clearest picture in Warm Edge Technology.

The Solution

Keep moisture off the glass with the warmest inside surface temperatures possible. The primary window condensation culprit is its insulating glass spacer.

Traditional metal spacers can conduct heat and cold—causing condensation at the edge of the glass.

Convection currents further concentrate cold air along the bottom edge of glass making that area the most vulnerable. Only a warmer edge all the way around will strike at the heart of the problem.

The world’s only TrueWARM® edge occurs with Super Spacer®, an insulating foam spacer whose use helps reduce condensation and allows for comfortable household humidity levels.

Compatibility of Super Spacer® with Low-E Glass

Super Spacer® has the capability to bond with most types of glass surfaces. This includes Super Spacer's ability to stick to all tested Low-e coated surfaces to date.

Super Spacer Construction

Superspacer compatible with low e glass

  1. Smooth, matte finish guaranteed against blistering and bubbling.
  2. Thermoset silicone foam matrix.
  3. Proprietary multi-layer vapour barrier.
  4. Structural adhesive combines with perimeter edge sealant for dual seal performance and durability.

Improves Sound Absorption

The closed-cell polymer foam in Super Spacer transmits very little sound compared to conventional aluminium spacers or less metal warm edge spacers.We recommend using Super Spacer wherever noise from airplanes,trains or automobiles may be a problem for building occupants.

Improves Condensation and Mould Resistance

Mould needs moisture to grow. The significantly reduced tendency of IG units fabricated with Super Spacer to exhibit interior condensation or frosting means that the health problems associated with mould can be almost eliminated. Health Canada research found that Super Spacer helped IG units stay in the optimum low-humidity zone that prevents mould and bacteria growth.

Globally Tested and Proven with Awards

Since its introduction in 1989, Super Spacer is still the only polymer foam, NO-Metal warm edge spacer.Over 70 million feet of Super Spacer is used annually worldwide since the start of production over 15 years ago. Edgetech received the 1994 “Solar Company of the Year” award issued by Solar Energy Society of Canada Inc. Edgetech is an Energy Star Partner. Testing Data is available to show that IG’s made with Super Spacer meets standards used in the USA, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Norway, China and Europe. It also meets Dade County (Florida, US) Hurricane standards.
