SWISSPACER expands Georgian Bar range

SWISSPACER has added four new sizes to its range of Georgian Bar spacer bars. To meet growing demand for heritage-style windows, the worldwide leader of warm edge solutions has developed new 12 x 18mm and 16 x 18mm bars specifically for the UK and Ireland. The company has also introduced a new 14 x 24mm and 14 x 30mm size for the European market, bringing the full Georgian Bar range to 13 sizes.

SWISSPACER’s Georgian Bar enables window companies to create high performance, authentic looking windows. It’s ideal for premium looking flush sashes, and vertical sliders. Available in SWISSPACER’s best-selling colours, the Georgian Bar enhances the appearance of the window and gives outstanding energy performance. SWISSPACER’s full suite of Georgian Bars now also feature improved bar crosses with an integrated anti-rattle plug and matching end caps for a seamless, high end finish.

John Cooper, SWISSPACER Commercial Director (UK and Ireland) says: “Flush sash windows are taking the market by storm. Homeowners love the traditional look and see it as a way of adding character to their properties. But, homeowners also want windows that perform and save money on heating bills. We’ve responded to demand by developing a wider range of Georgian Bar sizes. Our latest additions have been introduced specifically for the UK and Irish markets to fit the most popular sized windows. Together with SWISSPACER’s top performing warm edge spacer bar, our Georgian Bar gives flush sash and vertical sliding windows a seamless finish and outstanding energy efficiency.”

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.
