Super Spacer® Inside Innovative Skaala Alfa cLean Windows

Edgetech Europe GmbH, a Quanex Building Products company, is pleased to report that its Super Spacer® Warm Edge Technology is being incorporated in the truly innovative Alfa cLean windows from well-established window, door and glazing manufacturer, Skaala Oy, with head office in Finland.

Christina Bång of SinChriJo Agenturer AB, Edgetech’s Nordic and Baltic distributor, explains: ”Skaala recently launched this innovative window with an integrated heat exchanger that can cover an area of 25m².They are the only company in the world with this technology and it has taken 3 years to develop with some strategic partners. The heat exchange system is integrated in the frame, looks like a normal window and can be installed without any extra work to the window opening. The inclusion of Super Spacer® into the units ensures excellent U-Values too.”

Skaala Alfa cLean is an indoor air solution combining balanced air ventilation, clean air, comfort of living and substantially better energy efficiency. It includes air ventilation and heat recovery integrated inside a low-energy window. The solution does not lessen the size of the glazing, nor does it change the appearance of the building. It is easy to install when there´s no additional parts coming out from the frame, it works independently and does not need expensive and space consuming ventilation piping. Intelligent systems take care of the ventilation and the indoor air quality independently. Problems caused by moisture and temperature changes are eliminated by controlled removal of condensation and automatic defrost. Skaala’s energy efficient window combined with heat recovery and controlled, intelligent ventilation system leads to substantial savings in heating costs. Joachim Stoss, managing director with responsibility for Edgetech in Europe adds: “Edgetech’s significant research and development department is continuously looking for new and innovative ways to improve our wide product range so we are thrilled to work with companies like Skaala that take the same approach. The Alfa cLean window is truly innovative and an exciting new addition to the window market and we are pleased to be one of the supporting components that ensure the window remains energy efficient with low U-Values.”
