SWISSPACER launches new solutions for glass at London Build


La Pensilina – a premium load-bearing canopy system will feature on SWISSPACER’s stand at London Build 2019

SWISSPACER will launch a new range of premium solutions for glass at London Build 2019 on 27-28 November. Its stand will showcase an innovative glass canopy and balustrade system, alongside its market leading warm edge spacer bars.

La Pensilina is an exclusive cantilever glass canopy system, which is designed for outdoor use and can be installed above entrance doors or sliding and folding patio doors in residential developments. The canopy is also ideal for light commercial applications to enhance entrances to small commercial or business units.

It boasts a stylish and minimalist design, and the lack of visible screws gives the canopy a ‘floating’ effect and a clean look. The canopy is load-bearing and strong enough to hold a distributed load of up to 350 kg/m2 without breaking. La Pensilina will be available from SWISSPACER later this year, alongside new fittings and systems for glass balustrades.

Visitors to the show will also be able to learn more about SWISSPACER’s range of high performance warm edge spacer bars, designed to reduce heat loss in sealed units to improve windows’ energy ratings.

SWISSPACER Commercial Director John Cooper says: “We’re very excited to launch our new range of innovative solutions for glass at London Build this year, which includes our exclusive glass canopy and balustrade systems. We’ll also be showing our tried-and-tested range of high performance warm edge spacer bars, which help to improve the energy performance of sealed units. Come to stand C30 to find out more!”

Formed in 1998 Swisspacer is part of Saint-Gobain Glass Solutions. The company has experienced massive growth in the UK over the past 2 years. Its no-investment needed price benefit has been a key advantage that has attracted sealed unit manufacturers and window fabricators and fuelled its growth.

The manufacturing and head office is in Switzerland and a second manufacturing facility is established in Germany. Much investment is taking place to expand production capacity to ensure that Swisspacer is able to satisfy the dramatic ongoing growth in demand for its high performance warm edge spacer bar products.

Swisspacer has a growing network of leading sealed unit manufacturers in the UK and Ireland using its products, including Solaglas, Pilkington, Carey Glass, Supaseal, Custom Glass, Uniglaze2, Glass Systems, Clayton Glass, System 3 and Hollow Seal among others.

Swisspacer exactly matches the shape and dimensions of aluminium spacers, and being rigid and self supporting it handles in a similar way. And because there is no need to invest in expensive new machinery, it makes it very easy to get up and running with warm edge. Automated solutions are however available from Lisec, Saint-Gobain Seva and Rottler and Ruediger.

Independent tests conducted by IFT Rosenheim, the leading European independent fenestration research and test facility, showed that Swisspacer V had the best PSI values of all the other leading brands of spacer bar that were submitted for testing. Using Swisspacer thermal insulation (U-value) can be improved by up to 20%. Swisspacer V and Swisspacer perform very well in the Window Energy Rating Scheme.
