Warm edge spacers

Insulated Glass Units (IGUs) consist of 2 or 3 panes of glass, a gas fill, sealants and a spacer.

The TGI-Spacer is the element that separates the panes of glass, preventing any gas fill from leaking and improving the thermal performance via a “warm edge” technology.

The heat lost through an IGU via the spacer is due to the process of conduction. Heat transfers from a hot to a cold environment. The system is described as a “warm edge” system if the energy losses between the inside and outside of the window remain low.

Warm edge spacers guarantee a pleasant climate and save energy, while keeping the clean aesthetics of your door, roof or window unit. The TGI-Spacer is classified as a “warm edge” product in accordance with EN ISO 10077-6:2012.

The TGI-Spacer with warm edge technology insulates windows more effectively. While contributing to help you save more money on energy bills, it will also help the environment by reducing CO2 emissions.

  • Less condensation at the edge of the window when the room’s air is moist, for example in a bathroom
  • More comfort when standing near the window due to reduced air circulation
  • High insulating properties
  • Higher surface temperature of the inside glass edge
  • Increased life of the window
