Glass options

Metal Spacer

Our standard spacer for all standard shape, standard and performance units. Two pieces of glass are separated by a metal spacer and sealed to provide a hermetically sealed air or argon gap. It has a primary water vapor proof seal and polysulphide secondary seal. The airspace is provided with a desiccant to prevent condensation forming within the unit.

  • Structural silicone as a secondary seal is available on request

Super Spacer

Typically used for shapes, Super Spacer comprises Thermoset structural foam containing no metal, an integrated 3A desiccant and an advanced multi-layer vapor barrier structure. It is a warm edge solution that minimises the transfer heat escape path for optimal performance.
 

Performance

Full performance data on the K&K standard and performance range of IGU’s is available for download at the resource centre.

Considerations

Glazing compounds, sealants and gaskets need to be approved by K&K Glass for suitability.

Frame design - K&K warranty relies on frame design in accordance with AS/NZS4666. Do not expose edges to standing water and moisture as this can result in seal failure. The frames must incorporate impervious weather seals or a self draining system.

Wind load and safety determine the type and thickness of glass required - refer Australian Standard AS1288 or New Zealand Standard NZS4223.

Installation must be in accordance with AS/NZS4666. Please refer to the technical glazing specification on resource centre further installation instructions.

Visual characteristics and manufacturing tolerances – K&K IGU’s are manufactured to AS/NZS4666. Also refer to the resource centre for specification and installation information, including distortion and reflection from changes in exterior and interior pressure and temperature.
