SWISSPACER’s new Toolkit at FiT Show

Swisspacer’s new Toolkit will feature at this year’s FiT Show

Following the success of the first two FiT shows, SWISSPACER will be exhibiting for the third year in April.

A main focus of SWISSPACER’s stand this year will be its new free Marketing Toolkit. It’s a unique suite of selling aids that makes it easy for fabricators and installers to sell the benefits of warm edge to their customers. The sales aids help them explain ‘Why SWISSPACER’ and the importance of high performing warm edge space bars to the energy efficiency of windows.

Warm edge is not an everyday term. A spacer bar is a small component of a window that generally goes unnoticed by homeowners and they’re unaware of how much it contributes to energy savings in windows. It can be complicated and difficult to describe in simple terms so fabricators and installers avoid it.

SWISSPACER’s new Toolkit gives fabricators and installers the sales aids and resources to sell warm edge and windows with SWISSPACER inside easily and confidently. The Toolkit includes an already popular animated explainer video; a Caluwin app that calculates how much homeowners can save with their new energy efficient windows; brochures, sample cards, window labels, van and lorry transfer stickers, and data sheets. Many of the tools can be tailored with the customer’s own branding and details.

“The FiT Show is the main exhibition in the industry for window fabricators and installers,” comments John Cooper, SWISSPACER’s Head of Sales and Marketing – UK and Ireland. “The previous two were very effective for SWISSPACER and we’re looking forward to the next one. It’s a great opportunity to demonstrate our new Toolkit.”

Visit SWISSPACER on Stand 324, near the entrance to Hall 3.

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.
