Anodized Aluminum Spacer Bars

Spacer barsAnodized Aluminum Spacer Bars for insulated glass

Manufacturers & Glaziers worldwide have used SAF’s clear anodized finish for aluminum spacer bars. Anodized Aluminum Spacer Bars are speicified for energy savings, improved storefront, window and door surface temperatures, lower condensation & edge aesthetics. Aluminum Spacer Bars have several benefits, including: increased laser-welding speeds, better adhesion of the sealant to the metal, and a clean surface for material handling during the manufacturing process. Matte finish anodizing also minimizes reflecting sunlight.
