The Window is “Reinvented” with Lumi and Super Spacer

Lumi, the award-winning window system from Apeer uses Super Spacer® from Edgetech UK to aid its impressive thermal efficiency.

Lumi offers frameless windows, bi-fold and slider, patio and residential doors with flush glazing and a highly polished ceramic colour border for an impressive, unbroken facade. The system was awarded the G15 Award for Best New Product and was praised by judges as ‘a product that truly reinvents the window’.

The minimalist design of Lumi puts the emphasis on build quality and each element of the product must come together to deliver the elegant finish. Super Spacer references the glass edge during application which ensures consistent sight lines within triple units, enhancing Lumi’s seamless appearance.

As well as striking aesthetics, Lumi is thermally efficient with triple glazed units which are bonded to a GRP subframe.

The system uses Super Spacer for built-in energy saving, helping to lower U-values and boosting weather protection benefits.

Managing Director at Apeer, Asa McGillian said: “Super Spacer is used in all of our triple glazed units in the Lumi system. We’ve chosen Super Spacer in Apeer composite doors for over 10 years now so we know that it’s easy to use in manufacture and completely reliable. It helps to make our windows even more energy efficient and achieve very low U-values.”

As well as being used in the Lumi triple glazed window system, Super Spacer is used in Lumi composite doors and all accompanying sidelights. Asa continues: “Market leading products require market leading components and Super Spacer is an important selling feature of Lumi windows. As a respected brand in the industry with proven durability in the field we know we can count on Super Spacer and Edgetech.”

Director of Sales and Marketing at Edgetech UK, Alan Fielder said: “Lumi stands out, it’s completely different to any other window system on the market, offering frameless glazing with security and energy efficiency benefits. I’m really pleased that Apeer has chosen to use Super Spacer for this innovative piece of engineering that proves triple glazing can look great as well as offer fantastic efficiency.”
