Why Edgetech’s Super Spacer ® is the healthy option

At the end of 2004, official data from Asthma UK confirmed that the number of people with asthma had risen to 5.2 million. Asthma was costing the UK more than £2.3 billion a year through the NHS, benefits and lost working days. Persistent condensation on windows and doors provides an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, mould, mildew and dust mites which are a common cause of asthma. Edgetech’s Super Spacer® reduces condensation, as Dave Cox, Technical Sales Manager explains: “Traditional metal spacers suck heat from the warm side of the glass to the cold side. Eighty percent of a window’s heat loss is through the glass, and the edge of the glass is the weakest link, causing condensation.” “Condensation is a problem and over time, will stain frames, peel paint and rot wood,” continues Dave. “Super Spacer is proven to reduce condensation, eliminate harmful mould, and offer comfortable household humidity levels. Benefits such as these give installers a huge advantage in a competitive market.”
