Spec the edge
Spec the edge story
Why the edge matters:
If a dam does not span the entire width of a stream, the water simply flows around the structure—heat works much the same way. To optimize fenestration performance...specify the edge.
Take a good look...this is the edge.
High performance begins on the edge. The window frame and edge of glass are critical to creating a high performance window system and is fundamental to its overall performance. Regardless of what is done with the number of panes, coatings and gases, if the frame and edge of glass are not well-insulated, heat and cold will find a way through.
- Incorporating our hybrid plastic spacer between the glass panes improves the thermal performance without sacrificing durability or design performance of the unit.
