Thermoseal Group, the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of warm edge spacer systems and over 2,000 insulated glass (IG) components, has introduced new sizes of its Thermobar Interbar to suit warm edge windows incorporating a multipane window system with a 25mm surface mount Georgian bar.
Available to order now, new sizes of Thermobar Interbar (Muntin) include 11.5x22mm and 15.5x22mm Interbar and fittings in black, white and grey. The Thermobar Interbar range also includes: 6x18mm; 11.5x18mm; 15.5x18mm. All fittings are colour-matched to the highest performance Thermobar Warm Spacer range, but are compatible with all warm edge spacer systems.
We are committed to our customers and seek to provide real solutions to industry problems” says Samantha Hill, Head of Marketing and Communications, “Offering a more energy efficient alternative to Aluminium is currently important in Europe where there is a U-value penalty on windows fitted with Georgian bar and multipane window systems using duplex fittings or Interbar (Muntin). In the anticipation that U-value penalties may also be applied to UK Window Energy Ratings (WERs), our Technical Centre and production team have been working to expand the Thermobar Interbar range which is made with high-performance engineering plastic similar to that used for our Thermobar Warm Edge Spacers. Our warm edge multipane window products will help our customers to minimize any penalties.”
Thermobar Warm Edge Spacers and all accessories are fully tested in the Group’s own Technical Centre before being fully tried and tested in IG sealed unit production. Thermobar and Thermoseal Group’s other highest performance warm edge spacer, Thermoflex, have been submitted for independent tests and are amongst the highest rated in the marketplace. Thermobar and Thermoflex have a thermal efficiency value of 0.14W/mK and 0.135W/mK respectively. These values are shown on Bundesverband Flachglas data sheets for both windows and facades. Both spacers are included on the Passive House Component Database and achieve an A+ Passive House rating for arctic climates.
The Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer Accessories range, includes: Bespoke colour-matched Corner Keys; Gas Corner Keys (with and without hole); Flexi Keys; Straight Connectors; a range of colour-matched Gas Collars and Plugs; Thermobar Interbar and Fittings and Duplex fittings.
