SWISSPACER sales grow 300% at Dempsey Dyer

National trade fabricator Dempsey Dyer reports sales of windows with SWISSPACER grow 300% in four years. The Deceuninck fabricator based in Pontefract, Yorkshire says around 80% of its ready-glazed frames now have SWISSPACER spacer bars inside.

Dempsey Dyer began using SWISSPACER in 2009 to improve thermal performance. It chose SWISSPACER over other warm edge brands because SWISSPACER’s rigid bar gives excellent structural joining and is better suited to Georgian bar and duplex windows. The company, which specialises in A rated windows, says SWISSPACER is a ‘failsafe’ for getting the best energy ratings.

“With SWISSPACER, we don’t have to change anything else about the window to get the energy ratings our customers need,” says Dempsey Dyer’s Director, Peter Dyer. “We’ve always been very happy with its performance and the fact sales of SWISSPACER have grown by 300% speaks volumes!”

Dempsey Dyer was established in 1977 with an emphasis on high quality, sustainable products. It provides customers with a wide product range and an extensive choice of colours.

“Aesthetics are very important and we’re one of the market leaders in coloured profile,” adds Peter Dyer. “SWISSPACER works well in our windows because it’s discreet – it lets our windows and colours do the talking!”

Vic De Costa, SWISSPACER UK Marketing & Sales Manager says: “SWISSPACER is the UK and Ireland’s leading warm edge spacer bar because it’s such a great all-round product. It’s a rigid spacer bar which gives greater flexibility for Georgian bar windows and triple glazing. SWISSPACER is available in no fewer than 17 colours to give window companies more choice, and our next generation spacer bar, ULTIMATE, is the best performing foiled warm edge spacer bar in the world for thermal efficiency.”

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.
