What is warm edge technology?
Warm edge technology, such as Duralite Spacer, deals with the edge condition of a window. The spacer material to which the panes of glass are glued creates the edge condition. A conventional aluminum spacer is extremely conductive. In other words, it transfer heat through it much the same way heat from a fire would travel through a steel rod that has one end placed in the fire. Warm edge spacer materials decrease the window’s tendency to transfer heat from the inside of the house to the outside because it lessens the conduction at the window’s edge. The less heat lost to the exterior of the home, the warmer the home is inside.
