Edgetech Europe Achieves Passive House Certifications for Super SpacersFebruary 10th, 2016 by Editor
Edgetech Europe, a division of Quanex IG Systems, has received Passive House certifications for its line of Super Spacer warm edge spacer systems. Passive House is an initiative organized by the Passive House Institute, an organization headquartered in Germany that’s committed to the research and development of construction concepts, building components, planning tools and quality assurance for energy-efficient buildings.
“Passive House certification is very important to the German market and is gaining recognition globally,” said Christoph Rubel, European technical manager, Quanex Building Products. “Components that achieve certification are usually two to three times more efficient than other commonly used products. And we’re proud to report that the values achieved by Super Spacer were among the best in its class.”
Edgetech Europe’s Super Spacer Premium, Super Spacer TriSeal Premium and Super Spacer TriSeal Premium Plus with appropriate secondary seals have all been certified the highest Passive House efficiency classes (PhA and PhA+) for use in arctic climates and climates with lower requirements.
