XL Edge Insulating Glass
Don’t let IG failures bite you in the bottom line
Its insulating capability improves the window U-factor by as much as 0.03 compared to an identical configuration using an aluminum spacer. Whether you use ordinary clear glass or advanced glazing products like LoĒ³, XL Edge IG provides better thermal performance. These benefits make a difference in compliance with local energy codes. If your marketing plan includes the Energy Star Windows program, XL Edge can be effective in getting more of your glazing options and window configurations qualified to use this designation.
The warm-edge characteristics of XL Edge IG reduce the frequency and amount of condensation during the most extreme temperature conditions. For a typical wood/vinyl window design, it would have to be 12°F colder outside before condensation forms on a unit with XL Edge in comparison with aluminum.
Reduce your costs – increase peace of mind.
These graphs estimate the cumulative percentage of your profit margin from window sales that can be lost to service costs. Over time, conventional IG units are increasingly prone to failure. The longer the warranty period, the more your profits may be eroded by service costs.
