SWISSPACER Georgian Bar gives Aztec’s Prestige Collection ® the edge

Aztec Windows Prestige Collection© with SWISSPACER Georgian Bar

Aztec Windows Coventry Ltd achieves high performance, authentic-looking flush sash windows with SWISSPACER’s Georgian Bar.

Sales Manager Michael Hagan says heritage-style windows have become extremely popular as homeowners look to add character to their properties. In 2013 Aztec Windows launched the Prestige Collection®, a beautiful timber-effect PVC-U window to appeal to this growing market. The company offers a Georgian Bar option for added authenticity, using SWISSPACER’s Georgian Bar for its best performing windows.

Michael explains: “Homeowners want to enhance the look of their homes and our Prestige Collection® flush sash casement is a low-maintenance alternative to timber. A traditional Georgian Bar is a popular addition to our windows because it adds character and authenticity. SWISSPACER Georgian Bars, used alongside SWISSPACER warm edge spacer bars give the best energy performance and an attractive finish. SWISSPACER bars have a matt, low-sheen finish which eliminates glare inside the sealed unit for a high-end look.

“Aztec Windows has built its reputation on supplying quality windows with close attention to detail,” he continues. “Other companies might use a warm edge outer frame with a metal Georgian Bar but this looks mismatched. We use SWISSPACER throughout for a quality finish and the best energy performance.”

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.
