Edgetech proves the favourite for Sash Windows

We’ve seen aluminium, PVC-U and timber sash windows making the headlines recently and all have one thing in common – they’ve used Super Spacer® warm edge technology from Edgetech to meet their high performance specification. Whether to obtain demanding energy ratings or to meet strict conservation requirements Super Spacer has stepped up to the challenge.

“Firstly we have The Window Centre,” explains Andy Ball, Marketing and Business Development Manager of Edgetech, “who recently reported that the use of Super Spacer in its aluminium sash windows convinced a conservation architect that its units were up to a particularly demanding specification for The British Gift and Jewellery Federation’s four storey property in Hockley. Next up was Masterframe, who used Super Spacer to achieve the first and only BFRC ‘A’ rated sash window in the UK. The PVC-U sash makes a phenomenal difference to energy saving with its carbon neutral performance, giving Masterframe’s customers another competitive advantage. And finally, Mighton hit the headlines with Ecotilt, the first ‘B’ rated timber sliding sash window.

“Edgetech has a good reputation for working with fabricators and sealed unit manufacturers to achieve high energy ratings and supporting them when selling those high performance products on,” continues Andy Ball. “But a lot of people don’t realise its benefits in different types of windows and in different material frames, for example improved sightlines in timber and aluminium windows or improved condensation resistance in any frame.”
