SWISSPACER, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-performance warm edge spacer bars, reports an excellent start to the year in the UK and Ireland with sales up 10.2% in January on January 2015. It’s a positive start to a year which promises continued growth and exciting developments.

John Cooper, SWISSPACER’S Head of Sales & Marketing UK & Ireland, is looking forward to 2016: “We kick-started the new year on strong sales and we expect this to continue on the back of exciting new products and our unique Marketing Toolkit launched at the end of last year. The Toolkit is a comprehensive suite of selling aids designed to help fabricators and installers sell the benefits of warm edge easily and confidently.

“We’ll be at the FIT Show again this year and our new Toolkit will be the centre piece of our stand,” continues John. “We’ll also be showing our latest product development, SWISSPACER Air, an innovative device that regulates the air pressure in sealed units to prevent breakdowns caused by changes in altitude. It’s an exciting time for us and recent developments will ensure SWISSPACER maintains its leading position in the UK and Ireland.”

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.
