Fantastic Fensterbau for SWISSPACER

SWISSPACER enjoyed another busy and successful show at this year’s Fensterbau Frontale exhibition in Nürnberg, Germany.

The leading warm edge spacer bar supplier had a record number of visitors on its stand over the four day exhibition. People came to learn more about SWISSPACER’s latest innovation, SWISSPACER Air, which prevents sealed unit failure caused by changes in altitude. This clever device, with an active membrane, has been designed for non-gas filled units where changes in altitude can affect air pressure inside the sealed unit and cause the unit to fail. SWISSPACER Air fits unobtrusively into the spacer bar and sealant to equalise air pressure differences between the sealed unit and surrounding atmosphere.

SWISSPACER Head of Marketing, Jan Hiersemenzel comments: “Once again Fensterbau was a resounding success for SWISSPACER. We welcomed customers and prospects from across Europe and beyond to our stand, all of them eager to learn more about SWISSPACER Air. Our wider 32mm and 36mm spacer bars, which are used for doors and special applications such as sealed units with integral blinds were also very popular on the stand.

“Fensterbau is one of Europe’s premier glass and glazing exhibitions and we find it an excellent platform to meet prospective customers. Now we have the FIT Show firmly in our sights and look forward to seeing everyone in Telford in April.”

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.
