Warm Edge Technology
Golden windows use only Warm Edge Technology (W.E.T) spacers in their windows.
Warm Edge Technology is a generic term for any spacer bar or system that has better thermal performance than a highly conductive aluminum spacer bar. The two W.E.T spacers that Golden Windows uses are the tin Intercept spacer and the Edgetech Superspacer.
The intercept spacer is a tin bar that is coated with butyl and holds panes of glass apart in a window. The butyl is used to keep the bar from touching the glass so its conductive properties are reduced. The butyl is also a vital component in keeping the Argon gas that is in the windows in the window.
The Superspacer helps to deliver windows of the highest standards. Superspacer is a non-metal structural foam spacer system that holds panes of glass apart in a window.
Superspacer has excellent resistance to nitrogen and argon gas absorption and it has high UV resistance. It has 100% memory meaning it will return to its original shape allowing for expansion and contraction, which is a major cause of stress fractures in conventional sealed units.
