Condensation has plagued windows for many decades now and that includes recent years in double glazing where the glass may be advanced, but the material separating the two panes in a double glazed unit is not. This is because no matter how efficient the double glazed unit may be at the centre, the metallic spacer bar at the edges acts as a bridge, allowing the cold to pass through and 80% of the energy lost through a window occurs here for this reason.
To eliminate this phenomenon, SMARTGLASS® uses ‘Warm Edge Technology’ – the use of a spacer bar that is up to 950 times less conductive than aluminium, thereby increasing internal temperatures around the edges and vastly reducing condensation. This is just another reason why SMARTGLASS® makes for truly intelligent glazing.
