SWISSPACER publishes new Technical Guide


MTL endorses SWISSPACER’s new Technical Guide

SWISSPACER, the No.1 warm edge spacer bar in the UK and Ireland, has published a new technical guide. The comprehensive guide gives sealed unit makers useful information about how to process SWISSPACER correctly.

The guide is organised into different sections such as processing, machinery, product specifications and thermal values. Each section provides detailed information to help sealed unit makers use SWISSPACER to its full potential and inform their customers about the detailed benefits of warm edge spacer bars.

Machines and Tools Limited (MTL) is a Lancashire-based designer of tooling solutions that manufactures saws used to cut SWISSPACER spacer bars. MTL says the new Technical Guide can be a great asset to sealed unit makers.

Rob Braithwaite, owner of MTL says: “It’s important for sealed unit makers to know how to correctly process spacer bars and use appropriate tools to get the most out of the product. The SWISSPACER Technical Guide is full of useful information and an invaluable resource to manufacturers. I fully recommend the guide as it gives detailed and expert advice on the correct way to cut and process SWISSPACER.”

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.
