Edgetech I.G. announced that Guardian Industries has recently transitioned from aluminum box spacers to Super Spacer to improve the thermal performance and long-term durability of its residential IG units.
“The NFRC and government regulators have raised the bar, and we are answering the call,” says Shane Sieracki, general manager for Guardian’s Webster, Mass. manufacturing plant. “Aluminum spacer for residential markets could no longer meet energy efficiency requirements, and it was time for a change.”
Guardian Industries, a leading manufacturer of IG units for the residential market, examined a number of spacer systems before making the switch to Super Spacer.
“We looked at all of the available options, and Super Spacer was the definite choice for us,” Sieracki says. “Super Spacer provided us with the thermal performance and durability we required.”
Guardian is taking advantage of Edgetech’s experienced and knowledgeable Technical Service team. The team visited the plant, listened to Guardian’s specific needs, and then put together a custom line layout design. Edgetech also assisted with equipment installation and provided comprehensive training to ensure a seamless transition to Super Spacer.
Guardian’s investment in Super Spacer and equipment is just one part of its efforts to be a stand-out supplier to the IG industry.
“We believe in reinvesting in our products to stay ahead of the competition in terms of quality, performance and product efficiency. Viewing the most recent industry trends as opportunities to improve our offerings and differentiate in this industry helps us move forward. We custom fabricate IG units to specification, including complex shapes and arches,” Sieracki says. “Using Super Spacer makes even the most demanding jobs more simple, enabling us to service many markets.”
