The story behind the number one spacer in the world.

Since YEAR, Intercept® warm edge spacer fabrication systems and Intercept® spacer materials have been helping window and door manufacturers around the globe to produce the best quality, stainless steel spacers while saving money and labor.

Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Industries) developed the idea for the Intercept® “Warm-Edge” spacer system for insulating glass units (IGUs) when they saw the need for a spacer that had dual-edge thermal capabilities without sacrificing spacer quality. Vitro presented the idea to GED Integrated Solutions, Inc., needing a partner in the fenestration industry with extensive engineering expertise, to bring the concept to life. The first Intercept Spacer Frame Machine (GEN1, now obsolete) was made, and has since had several machine upgrades, with the Intercept 2.5 System being the most technologically advanced spacer frame system on the market.

Intercept spacers feature a unique, one-piece, tin-plated or stainless steel, U-channel design that creates an effective thermal barrier to help reduce conducted heat loss through the window. Its sealed, one-piece design makes Intercept spacers stronger and better at retaining insulating gas than many conventional designs.
