Edgetech is delighted to announce that long standing customer Tradelink has manufactured the UK’s first standard commercially available double glazed ‘A’ rated window using the leading warm edge technology Super Spacer®.
Jim Moody, Managing Director of Tradelink explains: “Anyone who has the foresight to take seriously the option for improving thermal ratings will have a head start on future environmental compliance - and a foothold in a new and important market: We’re especially delighted to have achieved this A rating. Although we’re the second company in the UK to achieve it, Tradelink’s window is the first commercially available, being the only double glazed product. When we launched Heatguard, our range of insulated glazed units (IGU), the intention was always to offer a product with unrivalled performance. This latest next generation A rated window will complement the C rated window we already offer as standard and the B for installers who are already differentiating themselves.”
The Tradelink window doesn’t use triple glazing to achieve its A rating. The company uses the Thermal Sleeve Solution from REHAU, the innovative Warm Edge Super Spacer® from Edgetech, low E glass and incorporates gas filling. This combination of the highest efficiency products and the newest technology components means the Tradelink A rating will keep its customers ahead in a commercially demanding market.
“Obviously Edgetech is delighted to be associated with the first two A rated windows in the UK,” adds Andy Jones, Sales Director and General Manager of Edgetech UK and Ireland. “We want to help all our customers achieve the most thermally efficient products on the market to open up the replacement window sector. We’ve been talking about the thermally superior properties of Super Spacer for a while now and this result is a great endorsement. To have already helped one fabricator achieve the first A rating on a triple glazed window was an accolade, but to have gained an A rating on a double glazed unit has made our year.”
