Technoform Glass Insulation: Company Now Included in BSD Speclink-E Master Specification Tool

Twinsburg, Ohio — Dec. 3, 2015 — Technoform Glass Insulation NA, Inc., a global leader in high-performance, warm edge spacer technology for insulating glass units, is now included in the BSD’s (Building Systems Design) Speclink-E master specification tool for architects and specifiers.

Technoform develops innovative solutions to increase energy efficiency in the building façade. The company designs and manufactures window system components, such as TGI-Spacer, which are used to improve energy efficiency in the building envelope. TGI-Spacer is used in dual and triple pane insulated glass units of commercial, architectural, and residential window applications, including curtain wall and structurally glazed units.

The TGI-Spacer is a unique hybrid spacer system, incorporating a high-performance proprietary polypropylene and low-conductivity stainless steel to provide minimal heat transfer, excellent site-line temperatures, and condensation resistance. The inorganic stainless steel surface allows for excellent sealant adhesion that mitigates the loss of gas leakage and prevents moisture from penetrating the insulating glass unit.

“2016 will see even stricter energy codes. Architects and specifiers will be able to meet these sustainability challenges head-on with TGI-Spacer. Technoform Glass Insulation’s inclusion in BSD Speclink-E is yet another tool to help our partners effectively and efficiently respond to challenging specifications,” said Laura Woods, product manager, Technoform Glass Insulation.

TGI-Spacer was recently used in the Deloitte Tower in Montreal, which features 285,000 square meters of glass. TGI-Spacer was used in both the structural silicone glazed units as well as the spandrel glass application. TGI-Spacer was also installed in Seattle’s Bullitt Centre, named The World’s Greenest Commercial Building by World Architectural News. Technoform Glass Insulation’s TGI-Spacer is one of the leading hybrid warm edge rigid spacer bars globally.

For more than 45 years, Technoform Glass Insulation has been helping customers worldwide make the strongest high-performance window, curtain wall, and IG products. For more information, visit http://www.glassinsulation.us.
