Edgetech I.G., a leader in warm edge technology for architectural and captured glazed insulating glass, will feature its time-tested Super Spacer TriSeal at Greenbuild 2010, 17-19 November 2010, in Chicago, US. Super Spacer products have contributed to the energy efficiency and sustainability of buildings for more than 20 years, providing exceptional long-term durability, energy efficiency and insulating gas retention. Additionally, Edgetech will exhibit adjacent to JE Berkowitz, LP (booth # 2389), which will feature its patented RENOVATE by BERKOWITZ commercial retrofitting solution with Super Spacer TriSeal. We are excited to exhibit next to JE Berkowitz, LP where we can showcase the benefits of the RENOVATE system, which includes a custom version of Super Spacer TriSeal, said Joe Erb, product manager for Edgetech I.G. RENOVATE is a truly innovative system that enables building professionals to turn existing non-operable, single-pane IG into energy-efficient, triple-pane systems. It is significantly less expensive than a full tear out and replacement, less disruptive to existing tenants and more thermally efficient. Edgetech“s booth will include the popular curtain wall testing chamber, which puts Super Spacer TriSeal to the test, simulating wind-speed equivalents of more than 300 mph – demonstrating its structural stability. Super Spacer TriSeal is engineered with a flexible, triple-seal design that allows for the natural expansion and contraction of insulating glass caused by temperature changes, barometric pressure changes, wind loads and snow loads, Erb said. All Super Spacer products are sustainable and contribute to achieving LEED certification, even in the most demanding applications. Edgetech will also showcase its SustainaBLOCK setting blocks, which incorporate the latest in stable silicone setting block technology for total system compatibility. With today“s demand for sustainable design, high-performance glazing components and sealants must work symbiotically like never before. SustainaBLOCKs meet this demand and are available in a variety of sizes, profiles and materials.
