Spacers are the elements that go between both pieces of glass where the insulating gasses are stored. Having high quality spacers is of paramount concern since that is what will keep your windows insulated & free from from fogging over the years. In addition to these tasks, spacers also serve to keep out the elements. In esscence, your window is only as good as the spacers that go in it. This is why Windowcrafters is proud to use the Duraseal platform.
Double Glazed Windows
Our Dura Platform warm edge spacer systems reduce the amount of energy loss when heating and cooling homes. This in turn
reduces the amount of carbon dioxide created and the impact on the environment. The Dura platform has two main options: Duralite which
boasts a polycarbonate shim and has no metal in the spacer and Duraseal uses an aluminum shim.
Over 50 million windows and over 1 billion feet of Dura Platform spacer have been produced in less than 5 years. No other spacer system has grown faster in North America than Truseal’s Dura Platform. Patent No. 6,581,341
