The Window Doctor prescribes SWISSPACER!


The Window Doctor buys windows with SWISSPACER inside

The Window Doctor, based in Cambridgeshire, specialises in window installations and repairs. The company buys ready-glazed windows from CWG Choices with SWISSPACER warm edge spacer bars inside.

“SWISSPACER ticks all the boxes”, says Brendan Pearl of The Window Doctor. “It helps give good energy ratings and it looks neat and tidy in the sealed unit – much more attractive than traditional aluminium spacer bars. All our windows have sealed units with SWISSPACER and Planitherm, which is a great selling point.

“We tell homeowners that SWISSPACER makes their windows more energy efficient which means lower heating bills. They’re always happy with SWISSPACER, and so are we!”

SWISSPACER is the No. 1 warm edge spacer bar in the UK and Ireland. It has excellent thermal properties and can easily make the difference between an A and a B energy rated window. Performance with SWISSPACER is long-lasting too: its High Tech Gas Barrier stops 100% of gas leakage and moisture penetration through the spacer bar so it maintains its performance for years.

SWISSPACER’s attractive, semi-matt finish also gives a high end look and it’s available in a choice of 17 colours.

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.
