G., the leading warm edge spacer supplier for residential and commercial insulating glass, has joined the McGraw-Hill Sweets Network® located online at products.construction.com. The Sweets Network is a resource for the construction industry to gain convenient access to product information, computer-aided designs (CAD), catalogs, specifications and building information modeling (BIM). Edgetech’s Super Spacer® products can be easily located by using the site’s “search” function.
“When designing for sustainability and energy efficiency, it is important to consider the entire window system and its components, especially the spacer system,” said Joe Erb, commercial product manager for Edgetech I.G. “By joining the Sweets Network, we are ensuring users have convenient access to everything they need to specify Super Spacer – and to gain its many advantages.”
One of the products Edgetech features on the Sweets Network is its Super Spacer® TriSeal™ structural-foam spacer system for architectural and captured glazed insulating glass. Super Spacer TriSeal is specially engineered with a triple-seal design that includes desiccated silicone foam, acrylic adhesive and a multi-layer vapor barrier for superior condensation resistance. The flexible foam construction also allows for the natural expansion and contraction of insulating glass caused by temperature changes, barometric pressure changes, wind loads and snow loads.
“Where a rigid metal might cause breaks in the seal from long-term stress, Super Spacer TriSeal is able to bounce back – providing a longer lasting seal and exceptional energy-saving benefits,” Erb said.
Super Spacer TriSeal has contributed to the energy-efficiency and sustainability of window systems in many high-profile projects throughout the world.
