SWISSPACER ULTIMATE is the ‘designer’ spacer bar for LAG


SWISSPACER ULTIMATE 32mm bar within a LAG installation

London Architectural Glass (LAG) supplies a full range of glass products and services to the commercial, residential, educational and heritage architectural markets throughout the UK. Recognising the importance of both thermal performance and great looks, the company uses SWISSPACER ULTIMATE 32mm warm edge spacer bars in its IGUs.

LAG Sales and Estimating Manager, Dylan Henderson confirms they use ULTIMATE because of its clean lines, minimalistic look, unmatched colour range and long-lasting energy efficiency. Dylan explains: “In the UK’s changeable climate, it makes sense to maximise thermal performance. We supply the highest energy rated products so SWISSPACER is the obvious choice. Their state of the art composite material dramatically reduces heat loss and condensation issues, and offers long lasting performance. It also looks modern and sophisticated, and makes the internal face warmer to touch.”

LAG also appreciates SWISSPACER’s market-leading choice of 19 widths, which means they can specify exactly what they need for each job. “We usually order the 32mm in black,” continues Dylan, “as it is perfect for our specialist door systems and hidden framework. It looks great and the production line loves it, as it saves time (and money) previously spent joining narrower bars. ULTIMATE should be branded the ‘designer’ spacer bar!”

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.
