What cause window condensation to start near the edge of the glass? What is responsible for a window’s actual insulating performance to be normally 15-20% worse than advertised? The answer to both questions is the metal spacer that holds the glass panes together.To overcome these problems, replacement windows from Universal Windows Direct utilize the revolutionary SuperSpacer® technology. Acrylic-bonded and ultra-durable, the non-metal SuperSpacer® system will help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer by decreasing thermal transfer. In addition, the life expectancy of a SuperSpacer® system is nearly 5 times that of traditional metal spacers, providing your home with a lifetime of energy-savings.

SuperSpacer® Technology

SuperSpacer® TechnologyAll spacers are not created equal! When we say that our windows are manufactured with the absolute best materials available, we mean it. Our windows utilize a revolutionary, acrylic-bonded and ultra-durable aerospace technology spacer system called SuperSpacer® to ensure that your windows keep your house warm during the winter and cool during the summer. This is acheived by combining a barrier sealant with an acrylic seal, mylar backing and a flexible thermal textile which allow the SuperSpacer® system to outperformed traditional window seal systems during the most demanding conditions. Testing has shown the SuperSpacer® system to be effective during 140°F temperatures with levels of 95% and 100% humidity and constant UV bombardment and have up to 5 times the life expectancy of comparable seal systems on the market today. In addition to this, SuperSpacer®-sealed windows are considered to be “health smart”, due to their prevention of condensation, which in turn, prevents the growth of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other allergens.
