THERMOPLASTIC SPACER: IN THE HOUSE
COMMERCIAL GRADE, RESIDENTIAL MARKET
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY, EUROPEAN-ENGINEERED
MORE FLEXIBLE & DURABLE SEAL
ENDURES EXPANSION & CONTRACTION
PRECISION • EFFICIENCY• SUSTAINABILITY
FORGE AHEAD ON THE NEW PATH
Here at Northeast Building Products, and throughout the fenestration industry, the name Crusader® has been synonymous with blazing a distinct trail and constantly striving to strike the balance between tradition and revelation. Crusader® Elite, like descendants do when at their best, builds on the Crusader® tradition, while introducing evolutionary changes within that feel both incredible and inevitable. By adopting TPS® (Thermoplastic Spacer) technology, Crusader® Elite surges forward in the ways of precision, efficiency, and sustainability. This new state-of-the-art warm-edge IGU* technology employs materials that transfer significantly less thermal heat/cold than conventional materials such as aluminum or steel.
DIRECT EXTRUSION & ADHESION
Thermoplastic integrated spacer is applied directly onto glass with robotic precision and efficiency.
INTEGRATED SPACER & DESSICANT
Forges a true chemical bond between glass, spacer, and secondary seal, bonding components on a molecular level.
TRADITIONAL V THERMOPLASTIC
Spacers prematurely fail without stable adhesion during expansions and contractions. TPS flexes and adheres.
