Super Spacer soars in Denmark’s eco-friendly Maersk Tower


University of Copenhagen, Maersk Tower

Super Spacer TriSeal has formed a crucial part of one of Europe’s most eco-friendly buildings.

The Maersk Tower, home to the medical laboratories of the University of Copenhagen, was built in line with Denmark’s historic commitment to becoming 100% carbon neutral by 2050.

It became an instant landmark when it was completed last year thanks to its striking copper shell, the work of superstar architects C. F. Møller and Vienna engineering experts Waagner-Biro.

The futuristic structure incorporates resource-saving measures that include automatic LED lighting, a state-of-the-art eco-friendly cooling system, and rainwater collection for toilet flushing and garden irrigation.

Three-thousand vertical copper-clad fins act as both solar shading and wind protection for the building’s 15 storeys of cylindrically curved triple-glazed facades – where Edgetech’s Super Spacer TriSeal plays a critical role in delivering the building’s exceptional thermal efficiency.

“The Maersk Tower is an outstanding example of how the smallest of components – in this case, warm-edge spacer – can have such a huge impact on a building’s overall performance,” comments Edgetech Head of Marketing Charlotte Mercer.

“Together with the stunning glass provided by Berlin-based Glasbiegerei Doring, Super Spacer has helped the building achieve U-values as low as 0.5 W/m2k.

“The sort of curved units that were used on this project demand precise, absolutely parallel application, and that made Super Spacer TriSeal the perfect choice.

“What’s more, Super Spacer’s reflective surface means it completely disappears from view when installed in the frame profile, allowing it to offer world-class performance without compromising the Tower’s dazzling aesthetics.”

The structure has won the Scandinavian Green Roof Prize 2017, the Copenhagen City Architecture Award 2018, the World Architecture Festival Award 2017 in the Higher Education and Research category, and the European Copper in Architecture Award 2017.
