Interpane Belgern’s ‘best-selling’ sealed units rely on SWISSPACER

Interpane relies on SWISSPACER. Interpane CEO Mr Schmidt is pictured far right.

Interpane Group is one of Europe’s leading glass processors, with branches across Germany, France and Austria. To meet growing demand for the most thermally efficient sealed units, the company started a pilot project and invested in machinery to automate production of sealed units with SWISSPACER inside.

The new Romillo mitre-saw and Roweldo welder from ROTTLER & RUDIGER were installed at Interpane’s IGU plant in Belgern, Germany. Both machines are ideal for large-scale production and let Interpane produce over 600 SWISSPACER frames in a single shift. According to Interpane, these sealed units with SWISSPACER are ‘best-sellers’ because they give the best thermal performance.

Vic De Costa, SWISSPACER Marketing & Sales Manager (UK & Ireland) says: “Interpane is just one of many big sealed unit makers who use automated machinery from ROTTLER & RUDIGER for large-scale SWISSPACER production. SWISSPACER is used by most large UK sealed unit makers because it is tried and tested to give the best thermal performance. But SWISSPACER is also very popular with smaller manufacturers because you don’t need to invest in specialist machinery – it can be processed by hand or on existing machinery.

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.
