Warm Edge Technology
Warm Edge Technology is a revolutionary patented system
that helps increase the overall thermal efficiency of
sealed insulating glass units. At the heart of the
system is the special non-conductive spacer that
includes desiccant to absorb moisture, a specially
formulated sealant that provides a vapor barrier to the
outside while it encloses a corrugated aluminum spacer.
Unlike conventional spacer systems that use highly
conductive aluminum or steel as their primary component,
ViWinTech’s warm edge spacer substantially reduces
energy flow around the perimeter of the glass, thereby
helping to reduce your energy bills.
Emax Plus High Performance Glass
For maximum energy efficiency, savings and comfort,
ViWinTech offers optional Emax Glass. Emax utilizes a
specially formulated invisible coating that is bonded to
the interior surface of the insulating glass unit. This
coating actually blocks long wave (heat) radiation by
reflecting it back to its source.
What does this mean to you? Energy savings. In the
summer, the sun is high in the sky. Visible light from
the sun strikes the earth and is converted to long wave
heat radiation. Your home can actually absorb this heat
radiation, even though the sun is not shining directly
through the windows. Emax glass reflects this unwanted
heat back outside, helping to reduce the load on your
air conditioner, and also reduce your energy costs.
Conversely, in the winter, the sun is low in the sky.
Visible sunlight passes easily through the Emax glass
and is converted to long wave heat radiation inside your
home. As these heat waves move toward the outside, they
strike the Emax glass, and are reflected back inside
your home, keeping your home warmer, reducing your
The Emax coating blocks not only long wave radiation,
but also effectively blocks ultraviolet radiation that
can damage fabrics and carpets. Emax High Performance
Glass does all this, while still letting in plenty of
natural unobscured daylight.
