“Most successful glasstec” for SWISSPACER


Most successful glasstec yet for SWISSPACER

SWISSPACER experienced its most successful show yet at glasstec in September. The leading warm edge spacer bar supplier had a constant stream of visitors to its stand and double the number of enquiries than in 2014.

Visitors were particularly interested in SWISSPACER’s new product innovation, SWISSPACER Triple. A world-first, SWISSPACER Triple is the only spacer bar designed specifically for triple glazing. SWISSPACER Triple replaces two single spacer bars with a centre groove to hold the middle pane of glass in place, allowing sealed unit makers to use a slimmer 2mm or 3mm centre pane. The result is a lighter, more durable sealed unit that’s easier to install.

Other attractions included Caluwin, SWISSPACER’s energy-calculating app and the latest high performance ‘Roweldo XL’ welder by Rottler & Rüdiger, which makes perfect SWISSPACER frames in around 30 seconds.

“With double the number of enquiries and a number of very strong leads, this year’s glasstec was our most successful yet!” confirms Jan Hiersemenzel, SWISSPACER Head of Marketing. “We had a high volume of sealed unit manufacturers visiting our stand. The warm edge spacer bar is an important part of an energy saving window and manufacturers we spoke to were looking for the best performing bar. They were particularly amazed with our new SWISSPACER Triple. We’re now busy following up the leads and look forward to our next big show, which will be FIT in May 2017.”

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.
