Leading spacer bar supplier SWISSPACER’s sales grew significantly in the first half of this year.

January to June 2016 sales were up on the same period last year and higher than in previous years. It’s a positive start to 2016 for SWISSPACER with strong sales and a new product launching at Glasstec in September.

John Cooper, Head of Marketing and Sales (UK and Ireland) says: “We’re delighted with these results. We recently opened a UK ‘hub’ and services logistics centre to serve larger customers directly and it’s having a positive impact on sales. SWISSPACER is the No. 1 spacer bar in the UK and Ireland and also market leader in many European countries.

“This is an exciting time for SWISSPACER. We’ve not only achieved higher sales, but we’re also launching a fantastic new product at Glasstec in Düsseldorf.”

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.
