Swisspacer success at Fenestration China exhibition

Swisspacer recently exhibited at the 13th Fenestration China show, held this year in Shanghai. It’s always an interesting and successful event, and this year was no exception. The exhibition covers Windows, Doors, Skylights and Curtain Wall Technology, Components and Prefabricated Units. Visitors came from all provinces of China, with more than 60% from the window and façade industry.

Interest in thermal efficiency is increasing rapidly in China, so SWISSPACER’s stand was a ‘must visit’ for those interested in energy saving windows. Mr Xu Zhiyong of the Passive House Alliance was one of the many keen visitors to the stand. SWISSPACER Ultimate is used in more than 80% of Passivhaus certified windows.

SWISSPACER also demonstrated its innovative Caluwin app - a quick and easy way for installers to calculate their windows’ energy performance, and it generated plenty of interest. The stand included SWISSPACER’s leading range of colour spacer bars, 17 in total.

Marketing & Sales Director Peter Appel was at the show and comments: “China is a growth market for energy efficiency windows so it was a busy few days and very successful! It was also good to see that our leading warm edge spacer bars weren’t only on show on our stand. Seven other window companies with stands at the exhibition displayed window products with ‘SWISSPACER inside’, which was a great endorsement for us”.

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.
